A Stepmoms Guide to Child-Free by Choice


“In comparison to parents, those without children are often characterized as: more selfish, less nurturing, more materialistic and more individualistic. Can I just say right here and now? That’s hooey! A 2002 Dutch study noted that, overall, ‘child-less individuals (offer more) help and care to family members outside the nuclear family.’ In other words, as a collective, our sense of responsibility tends to extend outside ourselves. Finally, the research is catching on: The child-free are not selfish kid-haters.” —Christine G. Adamo
