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... ›

HASH(0x8cc06708) 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.

HASH(0x8cc06954) 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.

HASH(0x8cc06b94) 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!

HASH(0x8cc06d38) von 5 Sternen The Best Child/Kid-Free Book I have read 22. Mai 2014
Von Susan W. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
It doesn't surprise me that this book has such good ratings. It is really great. To put it simply, it is a take on living (what the author calls) Kidfree from pretty much all angles withOUT doing a lot of the annoying things that many authors do....ie: try to hard to be funny, get off track on some political tangent or inner child issues they haven't yet resolved or add in WAY too many statistics/numbers (not that those are bad but too many makes me feel like I'm in college again - no thanks).

When I started reading it I wasn't 100% (maybe about 85%) convinced that I would like being Childfree but I will say that this book has helped IMMENSELY. I also don't feel like it's out to convince either, which is nice. The book just really points out a lot about having children that people do not openly discuss (and they should). As well, it points out the really nice things about living childfree and demonstrates that people can and DO have VERY fulfilling lives without children.

Thanks Kaye.....I think you did a great job with this for me and for society. I really hope more people read it.

HASH(0x8cc06c0c) von 5 Sternen Kidfree Too. 5. Juni 2013
Von Victoria J. Chance - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Having known I didn't want children since I was 16 (now 59), I was already disposed to like this book. However, it was better than I expected. Ms. Walters has done her research and uses fresh data, which really lends to its credibility. I enjoyed reading it too. It was not dry and dusty, but very readable.
