Nationwide Book Launch: The Case for Children: Why Parenthood Makes Your World Better by Best-Selling Author, Simcha Weinstein

New Year's Resolution #1: Have a Baby

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Dec 27, 2012) - Recently released U.S. population census shows population growth at its lowest level since the Great Depression. As young men and women are doing everything during their reproductive years except reproduce! Never before in human history have birth rates intentionally fallen so far, so fast, and in so many places.

This groundbreaking book explores the overwhelming benefits that parenthood brings to individuals and society and provides strong expert statistical evidence that contradicts many modern myths of parenthood. The book is intended to be a candid, honest exploration of why young people aren't having children. Fathers are scolded for bringing new little consumers and polluters into the world, and mothers in particular get grief for choosing childbearing over careers.

Simcha Weinstein's uncompromisingly sensible solutions fly in the face of traditional ideas. Showing how having more children can actually be a boon to your bottom line without necessarily increasing your carbon footprint.

As the subject of demography and declining birthrates in the West (and the impact this phenomenon is having on gender roles) has recently become a controversial topic, by reading this book, you may even wonder why you waited so long to have children!
