    'Childfree' forum closed after hot car death hearing | HLNtv.comLast month, a man named Justin Harris left his son in the car on a hot day, and the two year old perished from the heat.  This has gotten a lot of media attention since prosecutors are charging that he did it on purpose. One of the pieces of 'evidence' of intent? The fact that he visited child-free Reddit boards.  Which means they either 1- didn't bother to do one bit of research into what childfreedom is about, or, 2-they are dishonestly pretending there is a relationship between being childfree and killing a…

  • The flexible working debate shouldn't be made into an argument between women

    3 Apr 2014 | 7:32 pm
    Anne Perkins | Comment is free | theguardian.comAn excerpt:"Day claims that childless women do end up working longer and are harder to cover for than the mothers in the office who have (by implication) swanned off for a little light childcare. Passing over the gritty reality of parenthood, if that was really the case then they should be directing their rage not at the parents but at their employer. It is not acceptable to give one person flexible hours and make others pick up the tab. One of the (long list) of reasons for refusing a request for flexible working is if the employer can…

While no one can scientifically measure the joy of a first smile or the bliss of a newborn's smell, let me tell you there are many dissatisfying moments every parent goes through on pretty much a daily basis, and I guarantee that these are not the moments when they're filling in a satisfaction survey.  "Technorati Tag: childfree

    24 Jul 2014 | 4:28 am
    By Karen Malone Wright This week, I went to see my gynecologist for the first time in two years. I'm all about annual exams, so it felt overdue. Turns out I was a year early; my age and new recommendations now call for my Pap test every five years. I decided to get it done while I was there, and naked under my clinic gown. (Wouldn't you?) Besides, it gave me time to talk with my longtime GYN about how this blog has grown since I last saw her. Mind you, I've seen this doctor since 1993 when blond hair reached to her hips and her kids were first-graders. Now, she's a grandmother wearing…

    Guest Post By Bonnie Stein I just read Nicole Ciomek's interview on TheNotMom.com, and it's so interesting for me to compare a NotMom at 33 years old (Nicole, who wanted to have children) with a NotMom (me) at 59 years old who never wanted to have children.   I was Nicole's Racewalking Coach in Atlanta, and met her when she was ten years old.  She was a great little athlete and went on to compete in the [caption id="attachment_11832" align="alignright" width="150"] Nicole Ciomek[/caption] National Junior Olympics for racewalking when she was 12.  At 14, she was part of the National Youth…

    By Karen Malone Wright There once was a time when I worked as a producer of three local, weekly TV talk shows; one about government and politics, one on civic concerns, and one on women's issues. Each week, my inbox filled with at least a dozen unsolicited books covering diverse topics, sent by authors and their reps hoping for some publicity. Sometimes, the ploy succeeded. In my experience, program hosts never flipped a page in a single one. I did. It didn't take long to learn how to glean a Table of Contents and speed-read to pull the salient points and create questions or conversation…
  • The NotMom Kitchen: Fast & Easy Breakfast Pizza

    19 Jul 2014 | 5:03 am
    By Karen Malone Wright Meal-planning -- knowing what you're going to cook/eat days before -- is one of those things that makes perfect sense, but ain't easy to get done. At least, not for me. I get tired of cooking at some point mid-week, or suddenly have no desire for what's been planned, pre-cooked or not. But, when I think about it, that's mostly true for dinners, and partly true about lunches. Breakfast, however, is the one mealtime I can plan for with a flourish. Creative omelets cooked the night before, for example, or using the meat from a leftover sandwich to cobble together…

    Childless and childfree women come in lots of shapes and sizes. We are all colors, all cultures, and all ages. As much as we have in common, we are also very different. Some people say it is strange to define ourselves by things that we are not, so let’s determine what we are instead. In this series, childfree blogger Laura LaVoie interviews women without children who answer the question, “If you’re not a mom, then what are you?” The NotMom has been looking into the categories of child-free women. those who think of themselves as without children By Choice and others coming to…
