Many childfree people, like parents, struggle to make ends meet. And though we may not be putting our time toward rearing our own children, many of us fill our time with commitments to making a difference in our communities that both provide meaning for us and come with their own sets of obligations…Prof. Amy Blackstone
The childfree are not any more — or less — selfish than parents. Parents and the childfree both volunteer in their communities, care for their families, and think about others’ wellbeing and the future.
