I am someone who, in all likelihood, agrees with the point you're trying to make. I am often quick to judge someone's number of children, and I've often read rather defensive, essentialist responses by people with more than one or two children that basically amount to, "it's my personal choice! Children are a blessing, would you force people not to have kids blah blah China/India, forced abortions, eugenics, all the smart people will die out, why don't you just commit suicide. Did I mention it's so very personal and therefore exempt from public discussion?" This is why I am all the more glad to have read Sharon's perspective, because yes, she does have four children; no, they're not going anywhere; and yes, she does still think it's very important to talk about population. I can't really do justice to the post I linked to, so I respectfully suggest that you read it yourself :) Mark N.,

"Mothers who know do less." less playing taxi less buying less working out of the home ect very nice. although i do have to admit- I did see a visual in my head of how you were not doing all those things. (ie not buying diapers= rinsing them, washing them, hanging them, folding them) That reminds me of the best mothering advice I ever got. “Mothers who know do less.”

Most everybody in my family has been out of work for several years now and we're getting close to running out of reserves. We've never been busier learning and making things ourselves. We've also never been accused more of being "do-nothings." Whether this is sustainable or not remains to be seen.
