  1. I think we have to stop saying to our children, boys or girls, that they “can do anything they want” — because they can’t, even if parents wish that for them. I don’t think there has ever been a harder time for married couples to figure out how to do life when married life also means having children. As much as everyone says the world is better without assigned gender roles, this is part of the price paid for that change. We are now locked into a reality that generally demands (not just allows) both spouses work in an income generating job or business. But at some points of their life especially, children require the same time that both spouses must be spent working. Not easy.
