Kid Free Zone???

There is less pittering and pattering of little feet. If you have a house full of kids or grandkids to love on, you are from the “good old days.”

The Economist is reporting the either by choice or by circumstance, fewer women are having children these days.

A study of American and western European women reported reveals only nine percent of those born in 1946 never had children. The number rises to 17 percent for women born in 1970.

The website www.yourtango.com  says the number of American women without children has risen to an all-time high of 1 in 5, a jump since the 1970s when 1 in 10 women ended their childbearing years without having a baby, according to the Pew Research Center.

About 1.9 million women aged 40-44—or 18 percent—were childless in 2008, an 80 percent increase since 1976, when just 580,000—10 percent of those in that age bracket—had never given birth, the Census Bureau’s Current Population Survey shows.

The Economist article says it’s not a fertility crisis, but many women without kids say they feel isolated and ostracized. In response organizations like Gateway Women offer support groups around the globe where women can get together and skip the baby talk.
