About This Quiz

Children are a blessing, of course - everyone knows this. Of course, they can also feel like a pack of little curses running around and destroying everything you have while vacuuming up all your free time and money, while never vacuuming up the crumbs they leave in every nook and cranny of your home! 

They'll drive you up the wall and make you want to scream with frustration one minute, and the next they say something so incredibly insightful, cute, or charming that you melt into a big ball of love and just want to cuddle and praise them forever. You can feel this way about a child whether you have just the one, you have a whole house-full, or whether the only kids you interact with regularly are those of a friend, neighbor, or relative, and you can hand them back whenever you are tired of them.

Then there are those for whom having kids simply isn't how they want to live their lives, and that's OK too. People can find legacies in all sorts of ways, such as in their work, charitable giving, political activism or in mentoring without parenting, Those people usually have tidier houses, and they sleep better. Let's see if we can figure which category you fall into!
