Kurzbeschreibung

8. November 2012

Twice as many people today are not having children than 30 years ago. In an unprecedented survey, Kaye Walters has polled over 4,000 non-parents from 59 countries to find out why--in their words--they chose not to parent, and the issues they face for not doing so. Kidfree & Lovin' It! speaks to all types of non-parents--single or coupled, male or female--whether they are "childfree by choice," "kidfree by circumstance," "childless" or "on the fence."

Here's a sampling of what's inside:

- Hundreds of insightful quotes about kids, parenting and non-parenting from both the "childfree" and "childed."

- A look at the reasons why people have kids, and a thorough examination of why others don't.

- The Kidfree Bingo Card containing common cliche comments ("bingos") used to pressure you into procreating.

- A list of creative comebacks to use when you get blindsided by one of the "bingos" mentioned above.

- An exclusive list of over 260 notable non-parents from past to present--peppered with their quotes on the subject.

- Dozens of resources for non-parents worldwide, including groups, websites, books and a pithy glossary of terms.

Kidfree & Lovin' It! is the most complete guide to living as a non-parent published to date.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Child-free Lifestyle 6. Mai 2013
Format:Taschenbuch
Reluctantly, I confess that it is strictly my own decision and idea to be child-free (since the age of 8). I say reluctantly because my husband expressed his feeling that I would have made a good mother and that we would have had beautiful children together. However, his decision to spend the rest of his current lifetime with me is constant even with my choice to be child-free.I must start this review by prefacing that there are people in my life that I admire who happen to be parents. I admit that I'm not sure how my biological mother and adoptive mother would have felt about my firm decision to stay childfree. This is only because both women died within 18 months of each other and before I married my current husband (who I met in 2002 and married in 2004). However, I would like to think that both my biological mother and adoptive mother would have been supportive about my certain decision to stay childfree (if they were still alive today). Additionally, most women that I see who truly enjoy being mothers are depression free, are prosperous enough to afford help in caring for their children and/or have parents around who would immediately drop what they were doing to help look after the children. However, I have known since I was 8 years old that I preferred to be child-free. One of my main satellite reasons that I chose the child-free path is related to my intent to be available to freely work various shifts in this competitive employer's market. Additionally, there are some legal and respectable career plans that I have and being child-free helps to more freely facilitate those options. Lesen Sie weiter... ›

5.0 von 5 Sternen Insightful, must read for the undecided 23. Januar 2013
Von Katie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This is a fantastic book about the choice to become "kidfree", I couldn't put it down. Kaye Walters conducted a survey of thousands of childfree people. The book goes through the results of this survey question-by-question covering everything from why people made the choice to fears about choosing to be childfree. It includes lots of perspectives including those who have always known they would never be parents, those who are undecided, and those who wanted to be parents but circumstance has made them childfree.

I've read several books on being childfree and this is my favorite so far. I think she really hit on some points that I've not seen in other childfree books, like that some people might get twinges of wanting to have kids or even feel their "biological clock" tick, but that doesn't mean you should/have to become a parent.

It is a quick and easy read and I really like the way she organized the information.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Book about the Choice Not to Procreate 11. Mai 2013
Von Rebecca of Amazon - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
For most of my adult life I've had the experience of people trying to convince me to have kids. Truthfully I've only experienced the desire to have children once and even then the thought was fleeting. My doctor warned me that if I didn't get pregnant soon I'd have trouble with infertility later. As I neared 45 I worried that I would in fact regret not having kids although I think of my cats as children.

So naturally when Kaye D. Walters offered me a copy of this book I was intrigued and wanted to know why other couples have chosen to be childless by choice. This book is very revealing. "Kidfree and Lovin' It" is filled with quotes from non-parents. However there is also a chapter on why people do have kids.

Non-parents will enjoy the chapter on 101 Reasons not to parent. To me a lot of it makes sense since I think the world is overpopulated. The realities of childcare also seem more apparent to those who don't want to raise kids. It seems to me that non-parents think very deeply about their choice and have come to some very good conclusions.

Kaye D. Walters addresses many issues in this book including the thought that childfree couples are selfish. In fact they may be more concerned about the environment than most. There is also a chapter on how childfree couples are discriminated against.

Everyone makes lifestyle choices and not having kids is just one of those choices. As this book explains, people who don't have kids still enjoy spending limited amounts of time with kids they just don't want the responsibility of caring for their own.

This book completely explains the reasons for the choice not to procreate. Anyone on the fence or even considering having children would benefit from reading this book. At the very least it would explain to anyone the responsibilities of being a parent.

The truth is that a decision not to have kids is going to disappoint someone. But at least after reading this book you will know that other people feel the same way you do. I especially liked the list of famous people who decided not to have kids.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very Positive! 30. März 2013
Von Einzors - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This was a great book and I really appreciated how Walters stayed positive throughout. So many of these Childfree books have a bitter or angry tone to them and this was all about embracing your choice and helping me to know I've made the right decision. Sometimes, the pressures of your family and society make you question your decisions but this book helped me know there are a lot of people like myself who have the same thoughts and feelings. That really helped me know I'm not alone and that I have, in fact, made the correct choice.

There was a section on fears. It has forced me to address the elephant in the room where loneliness was concerned. It is a true and valid fear but this book has forced me to face it straight on instead of pretending it wasn't a fear of my own.

This has been an eye-opening book for me and I love how she included direct quotes from her survey. Seeing what everyone else had to say on the subject validated what I have always felt. Thank you for writing a great book!

5.0 von 5 Sternen The best 10. März 2013
Von Madea Rogers - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
It's hard to imagine anyone reading this book and then deciding they want to have kids. It truly makes a very convincing argument. I'm childfree, but I would still get moments of doubt or guilt about not having kids. After reading this book, all doubt and guilt is now gone. I feel much happier about my choice. I've read a couple other childfree books and this one was definitely superior in quality and quantity.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Child-free Lifestyle 5. Mai 2013
Von Stella Carrier - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Reluctantly, I confess that it is strictly my own decision and idea to be child-free (since the age of 8). I say reluctantly because my husband expressed his feeling that I would have made a good mother and that we would have had beautiful children together. However, his decision to spend the rest of his current lifetime with me is constant even with my choice to be child-free.I must start this review by prefacing that there are people in my life that I admire who happen to be parents.

However, I have known since I was 8 years old that I preferred to be child-free. One of my main satellite reasons that I chose the child-free path is related to my intent to be available to freely work various shifts in this competitive employer's market. Additionally, there are some legal and respectable career plans that I have and being child-free helps to more freely facilitate those options. Last, but not least, there are more than enough families who have more than four children per household (just in the United States of America alone) to make up for the number of men and women who voluntarily decide to stay child-free.

Fortunately, my husband is supportive of my decision to be kid-free for the rest of my current life and has even been aware of my child-free choice even before he proposed to me back in 2003. I purchased "Kid-free & Lovin It" by Kaye D. Walters as a book of support because of the judgement and questions from others that my husband and I have dealt with as a result from both of us mutually agreeing to be child-free. There are featured stories of those who have also chosen the offspring free route and effective rebuttals to various arguments and/or concerns that some well-meaning men and women may mention to child-free couples. I also like that there are various child-free resources listed in the back (in terms of websites, groups, and books).
