Client 2: I am really upset. My parents needling us about having a baby. Joe and I are not sure that we want to have children. They can really disrupt your life. Most of our friends who did have kids were really bummed out after having them. Anyway, my parents want us to come home for the holidays, but every time we do, it gets really tense. I wish they would leave us alone.
