Mother and father are called
"Brahma," "early teachers"
And "worthy of veneration,"
Being compassionate towards
Their family of children.
Thus the wise should venerate them,
Pay them due honor,
Provide them with food and drink,
Give them clothing and a bed,
Anoint and bathe them
And also wash their feet.
When he performs such service
For his mother and his father,
They praise that wise person even here
And hereafter he rejoices in heaven

I would like to hear from those of you who have had children, the effect it had on your practice. We commonly hear about the problems it brings and hear about the positives as well. But rather than be theoretical or speculate, I want to know from those of you who have children, how it has affected your practice. I suspect it cannot be completely positive or negative. On the balance is it more negative than positive (for example 60% vs 40%) or vice versa?
