I am not a mother, and right now this country's attitude toward child-rearing makes it so I can NOT imagine becoming one. Our current culture is seeing a decline in marriage statistics and people are opting to not have kids. Our government puts family and education in last place every time. This country's greatness will die out if we can't make it worthwhile and attainable to have a family and afford to educate each member of the family. If this country doesn't start putting families first on all fronts what's left of our population is just going to end up shoveling fries into the lunches of Chinese business/industry owners.
