Putting up with a bunch of screaming little kids. I'd hate that. As a mom, I would be saddened to see children in pain, ill or dying. I couldn't handle the emotional turmoil that pediatricians must experience day in and day out. The emotional strain must be a primary drawback associated with this profession.
