Now, I am putting this out there because I have recently felt a little jarred from others who say, "Well, you have so much time to do (whatever I am doing in Arts Education or Technology), you must not have any children." And the reason is yes. I do have time because I don't have any kids. However, I am not sure having kids or not having kids is an excuse to do or not do something dealing with the advancement of something you care about. I know a lot of people with children who do a lot of things I admire and aspire to do (but I haven't found the time yet).
It is just something I have been thinking about for a while. It has been bothering me (maybe because I would actually like to have kids at some point in my life) and I wanted to throw it out there. I have no idea what it is like to be a parent and I would never try and judge what others are doing with their time. I would hope that if I have children, I would want them to be the priority and the result would be a shift in how I share my time.
Be kind to others. What you say matters. You don't know what my history might be with wanting or not wanting kids - so instead of using it as an excuse to make yourself feel better about not doing what I am doing, please think before you speak.
