Parenting Angst - Quoted in Philadelphia Magazine

Are you anxious about having children or stressed out by your children? You're not alone. An article in Philadelphia Magazine recently highlighted this issue and quoted me:

“Anxiety about having children is a real concern,” David Fask, a clinical psychologist and therapist in Bryn Mawr, said when we talked on the phone for this story. “There are many valid reasons to be anxious. Children are enormously time-consuming and financially burdensome, and they radically change one’s lifestyle and sense of identity. Children also can fundamentally change one’s relationship with one’s partner. This, in and of itself, can be a source of stress and anxiety. For many, children are a joy, but they’re almost universally a source of stress.”
