Money can’t buy love and it can’t raise your kids, either. According to Daily Mail,
New research finds that parents who are obsessed with their work, wealth or social standing attach less meaning to the act of child rearing, compared to those who can separate the two. Canadian researchers say they found the effect to be more pronounced in men than in women, and say, “The finding is consistent with research that suggests money tends to activate achievement and self-promotion motivations more strongly in women than men.” Researchers say to avoid this pit hole work and family life should be kept as separate as possible so that parents do not attempt to achieve their work or money-related goals while spending time with their kids.

This makes me think of when Oprah said that if she had children they’d hate her because she would be so busy with work and they would suffer.
