This Written Assignment has two questions, but you only need to answer one of them: For the non-parents in the class, please answer question #1. For those of you who have children, please answer question #2. You do not have to answer both questions this week – just one or the other, based on whether you have children or not. In either question, please try to answer the questions thoroughly in an essay – minimum of 400 words.
If you don’t have children now, do you plan to have them someday? Have you thought about the skills and qualities that make a good parent? Given what you know about yourself today, do you think you will make a good parent? What skills or qualities do you think you need to develop?
What are your views on infertility treatments? Do you feel treatment is appropriate, or do you think infertile couples should adopt children? If you were faced with a diagnosis of infertility, what would you consider doing?
