This is the April 2016 Edition of The ChildFree Times, in this article are all the links to posts that I have looked at for the Month of April and for the most part all of them where published in this month as well. The idea of this is to have a months worth of linked articles for anyone who wishes to read ChildFree based articles with the odd childless in the mix as some people use the two term interchangeably in their meaning.
There are three sections to this page, the Articles, Sites and Pod Casts, no mentions of video’s or the like for this month have I found maybe next month will prove more fruit full in this regards, till next month take care everyone!

“I Don’t Want Kids, and It’s Ruining My Relationships” – When you’re looking for someone to spend the rest of your life with, the question of whether you want kids can make or break a relationship. That’s why dontwantkidsnope always makes sure her boyfriends know she definitely doesn’t plan to become a mom—ever. The problem?

Stop pressuring women to be moms: It’s insulting to assume we all want the same thing – Assuming that all women automatically want kids is insulting—to everyone. It insults those who do plan to have kids or are parents already by diminishing the sheer amount of physical and emotional labor that goes into the undertaking. It insults those who don’t want kids, or aren’t sure, by elevating motherhood above every other option. It denies the fact that it’s possible to love your kids but hate being a mom, sometimes or all the time, or even regret motherhood. Nobody wins by coercing someone else into becoming a parent, or making someone feel guilty, damaged or ostracized for not wanting kids.

Want them around me. Oh, hell, you couldn’t be more wrong.I run in the opposite direction of children. They just irritate me and they are ill-mannered, as well as having no concept of boundaries.

Child-Free Relationship – The term “dink” was coined during the peek of the “yuppie” culture of the 1980s. As most know, it’s actually an acronym that stands for ‘Double Income, No Kids’. But there’s a lot more to being a dink than simply earning a living and being in a child-free relationship.
