http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/li...cle_id=461899&in_page_id=1879&in_page_id=1879 My husband and I started trying for a family eight years ago, when I was in my mid-30s. We left it fairly late, and four miscarriages down the line, there is only a fool's hope that we will ever become parents. I know it may sound callous after the emotional trials we've faced, but I am beginning to see childlessness as a blessed relief. In a UN survey of 23 countries, Britain was judged the worst place to be a child. I am pretty sure it is one of the worst places in the world to be a parent. Why? Because somehow our liberal society has created a tribe of monstrous kids. Parents have become terrified of their offspring, in thrall to their every want and desire, which they scurry to fulfil. And the thanks they receive? A constant litany of abuse, much of it woundingly personal, and publicly delivered, casual disobedience.
