“It’s a very emotional thing, and it’s really hard,” says Rebecca Schiller, an English teacher in Toronto who is mother to a son, James, and daughter, Bella.
Schiller says having a kid has made her feel more confident. “
That’s something that, if you ask me, I feel a lot more positive about than other things in life.”
Schiller says having a kid has made her feel more confident.
“There’s so much more to me as a person now than I did when I was a teenager,” she says.
“I don’t feel like I’m doing it for the sake of having a family.
In fact, Schiller has an easy-going approach to having a baby. “
So I feel good about having a young family, and I don´t want to feel guilty about it.”
In fact, Schiller has an easy-going approach to having a baby.
“My daughter is the most beautiful child in the world,” she explains.
“She loves her siblings.
I love my son, too.
We both do.
And I love our children.”
Schilling is also proud to say she’s a single parent, with her husband and two sons in tow.
She’s also an avid soccer mom, and has two daughters in kindergarten and early elementary school.
“And I have my own business,” she laughs.
Schiller is now working on her fourth child, and her first has been born at her home.
But she says having more children would have been impossible if she had had a baby when she was in her 30s.
She says she would have wanted to have children at the same time she did, but her husband says having kids at such an early age is not something that he has ever been able to do.
“If he had a child at the age of 30, we wouldn’t be having this conversation,” Schiller explains.
That said, she admits it is difficult for her to have a child.
“When I was in my 30s, I wasn’t a very good mother, and there were a lot things I did that were wrong,” she admits.
But it’s not something I’d do for the money.” “
Now I think I would be a good mother if I had children.
But it’s not something I’d do for the money.”

Read more About a month after her son was born, Schilling’s husband began to feel a sense of guilt.
“It was a pretty traumatic time,” she recalls.
“The guilt was a big thing for me, and the guilt was like, How am I supposed to raise my son?
What am I going to do with my life if I don`t have a baby?
It was such a big decision.
“I felt like I was wasting my time. “
I felt like, What am the chances? “
I felt like I was wasting my time.
I felt like, What am the chances?
I felt guilty.
I had no other choice.”
Schillers husband was concerned about the impact of having more kids on her finances.
“He said, ‘I think this is going to be really hard, and you need to get a job, or else your kids are going to come first,'” Schiller recalls.
She thought that she might as well get a second job, and quit her day job to focus on raising James and Bella.
And so she did.
The family is now in their 30s and Schiller works part-time as a house cleaner.
But the costs are starting to mount up.
“We’re going through an income crisis now,” Schillings husband says.
He says they are now spending more than $50,000 on childcare each year, and have lost about $10,000 since starting the family.
“In the past, we didn’t have any money to put aside,” she adds.
“Even when we were at the peak of our finances, we had money in savings.
Schills husband has a hard time balancing his responsibilities. “
You get to that point where you can’t keep up with what your children are going through, and what you have to do to pay for it.”
