Of course raising kids is hard work, but it doesn't instantly write off reducing your environmental impact, which is, as you noted, rather important for their future. Reducing our impact involves changing our lifestyles, whether we be single, coupled, kids or not, city or not, working or not etc etc. Having a family could be an inspiration for change as much as an obstacle for change. It's already such a big lifestyle change that you could try fitting in a few more for good measure. Think of the future you want for them. Plus there are heaps of opportunities to do things with kids that are good for the environment, and provide plenty of bonding, education and health opportunities for everyone. I pointed out just a few. Some off them could turn out to be good shortcuts too.

And the world is full of people who feel too lazy, it's too hard, it's not really a problem or can't look past the moment etc etc. Some of them have kids, some of them don't etc etc. That doesn't provide an excuse for being a sheep!
