Finally! A reason to have kids!

When my childless friends ask, yo, bitch, please, give me ONE reason to have kids, I had nothing to say. I mean, why give up all those nights of drinking till you pass out at the bar? But, then, tonight, I came across this story in Medical News Today that changed everything: Childlessness And Premature Death Link

People who have never had children are more likely to die prematurely and develop mental problems than those who have had children, researchers from Aarhus University, Denmark, reported in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health.

Die AND develop mental problems? Who knew? All those times I've complained that my kids they are killing me slowly and deliberately and with malice... It's simply not true. "The belief that having children may shorten our lives is a myth, the researchers explained, as the reverse seems to be the case."

Of course, some people already have mental problems. Do kids cure that? Inquiring minds want to know...
