Author and marketing guru Sam McRoberts garnered a lot of attention on Twitter Monday afternoon, when, in response to a tweet from writer Julia Galef, who was curious about parental "satisfaction," he described having one child as "probably my biggest life regret."

@juliagalef
Study I would run if I had time:

1. Recruit 10,000 ppl unsure if they want kids

2. Ask them questions (Do you enjoy kids? Do you enjoy your life? Main pros/cons?)

3. Follow up 20 yrs later & ask: Did you have kids or not? Glad?

4. Look for predictors of satisfaction w/each choice

"My wife and I originally wanted 3 kids," he wrote. "Had 1, decided after a few years that 1 was plenty. Though I love my son, I now: A. Know myself well enough, and B. know the challenges of parenting well enough to say that having a kid is probably my biggest life regret."

McRoberts noted his wife agrees with him.

Not long after McRoberts posted his since-deleted tweet, Blaze Media engagement director Jason Howerton started the campaign #NotAMistake.

After posting a picture of his own young son, Howerton encouraged parents to tweet "photos of the kids you also don't regret having"... Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
