Parental love and the meaning of life

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


“The art of motherhood involves much silent, unobtrusive self-denial, an hourly devotion which finds no detail too minute”, wrote Honoré de Balzac (1996). De Balzac has a point. Life changes after you have a child. Hormones rage, chores and burdens multiply and social roles change. Losing the freedom you used to have is a major life-altering event. A hindrance. An encumbrance. An obstruction of happiness and justice.
