Are You Ready to Have a Child Quiz

For many of us, making the decision to become a parent is not easy. Having a child has become a choice - only one option of many life paths we can take. Adding to the confusion is the tremendous amounts of information available about having children, as well as the influences we may feel from our partners, parents, friends, society and the media.

As a professional working woman, I struggled with my decision for several years. I interviewed hundreds of women and men, and conducted a survey to determine how people decide to have a child. I created this online quiz to provide some insight and guidance to help you in making your decision. Please remember this isn't a scientific quiz, it is only for informational purposes only.
