A woman explains about her own experience and research on those "you will regret its" she keeps hearing.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010/feb/12/france-feminism-elisabeth-badinter

A very interesting article about a well-know French philosopher about good motherhood and feminism. I love that woman. Of course in France a lot of people think she is some radical nut.

the first article only works if you delete the url.

Living Without Children - Automated Note
For New Visitors: This forum exists as a support community for people who are living a child-free existence. This area is here to help nurture, inspire and educate those who, for whatever reason, are living their lives without children in the home.

Posts made here must be supportive of this lifestyle choice. Comments should not question a person's decision to or reasons for being child free. Those negative comments are called "bingoing" or "trolling" and are not allowed. Please be sure you are aware of this forum's intentions and rules before posting!

I love The Guardian. By another columnist:

And, there are more childfree women out there than people think:

Hope it is not too boring.

Here in Australia, they get the 'baby bonus' 5,000 dollars for every baby, every couple with children now have plasma tv's etc. Etc, so as of this year they get it in instalments to stop the young girls blowing it all! It's a fair incentive for the uneducated! Of course not everyone abuses it and there are plenty of loving families out there but I can't help feeling the young ones are doing it for all the wrong reasons sometimes!!

So, so sad. I think in the US you get tax incentives for every child born. While it would be of good assistance to help parents with the rising costs of child care, it is too often abused. I am in favor of offering those benefits to the first 2-3 children born and cutting them off after that, so people can't be leeching off the government like "Octo-Mom".
