    By Karen Malone Wright There’s a quaint practice in journalism and creative writing that makes the publication, whatever it is, suddenly interactive. “Dear Reader”, it begins. Yes, You! This, my dears, is one of those moments. I’ve been emailing for some time with a woman offering to share her story with you as a Guest […]

He’s outspoken, brutally honest and offers insightful reactions to being…

    There are scads of nonfiction books out there on the happiness topic. Then there are the “Who’s Happier” studies the media loves to talk about. Earlier this month Good Morning America joined the collection of television and print media with what it says is a “hot button question:” Who is happier, parents or non-parents?… Read more

I recently had another chance to talk with her.

  • How To Tell People You Don’t Want Kids.

    In this blog, I hope to give you pointers to stop any confrontation to remain childfree by choice. Remember, most of the time, people will mean well. They chose to have children. Many of them are happy. The ones who aren’t will rarely tell you that but want you to suffer along. Remember: 1.Your goal isn’t to defend a personal choice. Just like parents are rarely made to defend their choice, neither should you. A simple statement saying you prefer the childfree -by -choice lifestyle is all that’s necessary. Don’t go into details or pronounce how much you love kids when…
  • A FASCINATING READ, IN MY OPINION!

    http://aeon.co/magazine/nature-and-cosmos/pregnancy-is-a-battleground-between-mother-father-and-baby/ My facebook book site was temporarily closed down today not allowing me to post or comment. I feel Facebook slapped my hands saying the above article, “doesn’t follow the Facebook Community Standards”. In my opinion, it was closed because of some ignorant person who perceived that article as a slap to the Madonna myth. Read the article for yourself. See why, more than ever, pronatalism is alive and well and must be brought to the attention of others.

    hometownnewsPostedReceiving any award is always an ago boost. When I heard the International Committee for International Childfree Day (August 1, 2014) chose me for their inaugural “Lifetime Contributor Award”, I had mixed emotions. Why wasn’t I honored as their, “Woman of The Year”? Did they give me this as a pity party knowing I faced cancer  this year?  Finally, the word “Lifetime” made me feel old! Then I re-thought the whole thing. It’s an honor! I’m proud and feel excited to be worthy of this first time recognition.  When I think…

  • The Inconvenience of Public Dirty Diapers

    27 Oct 2014 | 4:27 am
    By Laura LaVoie I have been shocked of late at the sheer number of news stories that seem to be showcasing some people’s poor decision-making skills when it comes to their children in public.  Specifically, I am referring to dirty diapers. Two particularly disturbing stories come immediately to mind. August 2014: A Texas woman was […]
  • Wellness for One or Two: Harvest Time Meals

    25 Oct 2014 | 11:07 am
    By Samantha Pollack Creating healthy meals for the child-free should be easy, right? No kids whining about eating their broccoli, or refusing to eat anything that isn’t mac and cheese. It should be easy, but small families actually have a harder time with this than their procreating friends. The main problem boils down to portions. […]

    Guest Post by Beth O’Donnell The funniest part of It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown is the gang comparing treats after every house they visited. Candy, gum, pennies.   “I got a rock.” I know how you feel, Charlie Brown. Except I got soap.  You were right about one thing, though: there is no Great Pumpkin. […]
