I am 24 and my husband and I have made the choice to remain child-free. There are not a lot of good resources on the internet, as only about 6% of people make this choice. So I was wondering if there are any local support groups, resources, etc. for the child-free by choice. I don't think there are, I have never met anyone locally who has made this choice. It is difficult for us to be friends with those who have children because most parents don't have a life outside their kids, and most do not understand why we choose to be child-free. It would be nice to meet other people locally who are child-free. From my research, the closest child-free group is in Kokomo, so that kind of sucks.

you wont regert it. you can gave a great income, retire young ,travel Kids these days they turn in to know it all by the time they are 5, your home will stay clean you wont have crap all over ur house and yard and nasty finger prints and you will save thousands upon thousands! kids are a heartache that wont quit! mabey they would have grown up 2 torment you ! you can take a nap when you get tired you wont have to push yourself to the limit after working all day then have to play good mommy and daddy at thier outings .not to mention hundreds of other things IF the only reason someone has kids is so they wont be alone when we gt old is s sad reason 2 have kids! personally I think seeing a bunch of brats has been a wonferfull birth controll!!!!!!!!!!

crazy steve...I am glad I am not a kid also. Let me just tell you this I had a very sad child hood and tried to kill myself twice as a child. I decided the genetics forever stoped with me. I could tell you all the horrible things that happened to me but I have rewritten that story a long time ago with the help of a wonderful teacher who helped me.

alot of things happened to me as well when i was a child, what does that have to do with bringing a child into the world. what happened to me as a child has made me stronger as a person and a parent. I know now as a parent what to watch out for. there are alot of sick people in the world but if everyone decided to not have kids just because of what happened to them in the past would doom the world. the world would end sadly.

JUST BECAUSE? We never know what happens to someone to go so far as to never have children,,,mabey they carry a horrible scar, one that last a lifetime who knows? we live in a real world it would be impossible to end the population. thats as old as the old saying If I jumped off a building, would you? so dont take it to heart,,,the world will not be doomed..there will be more children

you make no sense seeing as the population could end just as well as the world people like you are why this world is falling apart. its not only the other countys part its all of us too. i know i wouldnt want my kids to have to be in the world alone with you. as far as the life time of scars you know what i have plenty i was raped multiple times as a child and beat but i have learned that my life is much more then a sin. the only people that should have no part in this world is the people that hurt children.
youre so kind

people like me? is the reason the world is falling apart? why are you so mean? Its not only the countys fault? I dont know what you are refering to/you wouldnt want your kids alone (or) along? your life is much more than a sin? want to argue the issue? you dont know me I how can you judge my character because I commented on someones topic? find someone else to pick on DO you realize you are a bully? you are a harsh person for no reason. what was said to make you so angry. Just for the curiosity I will re-read it. I thought the world was in a mess because of the economy. you are alwys right? and everyone else is all wrong? I get it!

why thank you! Yes there is a lot of drama you do get kind of tired of people being rude for no reason. just thier nature I suppose.its your decision if you want to go by different names.seems like when you are regestered people will learn your personality and if they dont like it they can be hurtful and rude. even if you are a nice person someone will be critical. just dont take it too personal.and someone will eventually use the name that you use just to be mean. its meant to be informative and for fun some people get tremendously radical. and you can make friends on here and find that you might have a few things in common. I wish you well!

Your a lousy parent then. I bet your the type of parent who thinks your kids are special snowflakes angles who can do no wrong when in reality they are spoiled rude brats. I wonder how many weddings, party etc you RUINED because you wouldn't grow up and realized that your kids DON'T need to be drag everywhere. It not hard to leave them with a babysitter to spend an hour with your friend that NOT centrer on your brat.

There plenty of reason why people don't want kids not all because of bad childhood. There are people who don't have kids and are happy.

Wow, you call kids brats? So what if they want to bring THEIR children with them! Children are not to be treated like a burden. Yes, some children are spoiled. That's a parents choice. And "it not hard to leave them with a babysitter" are you fckn stupid? It is hard!!!! I'm a single mom. I don't go out because my child does come first. If I know he will be a handful at an event, I don't go. I rather my "friend" enjoy the night kid free than getting blamed for something a toddler may do. I hope your fixed. I can see you being the parent that leaves you child with a drug addict so you can go party. Watch the fckn news! Look at all the children being murdered by babysitters or the rise of sexual abuse! My life is better since giving birth.
If a couple chooses to be kid-free, that is their choice. With today's craziness, I don't blame. But some people arent cut out to be a parent. Hey, they make great aunts/uncles. Don't ever bash a child for their parents choice. Just shows your a worthless POS and be the first to hit a child a little to hard.

It is their decesion to make and others should at the least respect it. They did not come on here to be bashed hounded or degraded they came looking for help. This is why this forum crap is useless. If you want children and want to be around them that is awesome but it is also awesome for them to make the decesion not to. As for not liking kids I did not read that anywhere they just do not want any. There is nothing wrong with this. But then hey I bet all of you are the ones bashing and degrading the Duggars for having 19 plus kids...
