Here are five myths about having children that you should be aware of:

2.  Another common myth about having children is that you should wait until you are financially stable. The truth about having a child is that despite financial problems, parents generally look after their children as best as they can. Having a child can serve to be a motivating factor that may help build a better life.
3. Another myth about having children is that it will make people happier than they are. It is important to understand that a child will not solve existing marital problems.
4.  Another myth about having a child is that it will make a man become responsible. This is not true. There are many men who have children and still refuse to become responsible.
5.  Another myth is that having children is a thankless job. Many believe that parents look after their children and when they grow up, the children don't give anything back. The truth is that most children love their parents unconditionally and want to give back as much as possible.
