I watched a stand-up set by Romesh Ranganathan where he shared how he felt about his children. The first child was like an angel who behaved very well and did as was told. While the second child was the complete opposite and so he was wondering why they had a third.
This may not be at all surprising as a new research states that having a second child actually worsens parents' mental health.
For many parents, the decision to have a second child is made with the expectation that two can’t be more work than one. But our research on Australian parents shows this logic is flawed: second children increase time pressure and deteriorate parents’ mental health.
