I am from Vancouver. I was raised in the school system here. I got the impression, from our school system, that having kids was bad. Unplanned pregnancies, for example, were deemed tragic and life-ruining. You also had to go to university and get a degree.
Oddly enough, we are all 30 and they seem to have a family that is incredibly fulfilling. We, on the other hand, have no kids and a piece of paper that is worth shit-all to our employers.
I wonder if Canada is going a bit too far by giving our kids the impression that kids are bad? They're teaching us all worst case scenarios and scaring people away from having kids in their early 20s.
