It's not just the physical aspect of raising a child; it's the pressure of bringing up an emotionally balanced, well-behaved, compassionate, and healthy kid who takes your lessons into adulthood, too.

But in the end, there's a lot of trial and error, and for the most part, we're learning while they're learning, right? Or you could consult the plethora of parenting studies and raise the brightest, healthiest, and most creative child who also ends up being the wealthiest adult. Seem too good to be true?
