Can anyone with children honestly say the children did not change their life to the point they think, act and react to situations differently? Not if they are honest. Having children is a huge responsibility, one that non-parents will find it hard to truly relate to. Staying up all night feeding and rocking a baby, carrying a diaper bag and having to plan around a child’s schedule changes someone.
Undoubtedly as soon as children enter a life there is a change to the decision making and lifestyle of the parents.
In the late 1900s as medical advances were able to overcome many health issues preventing a couple from bearing children a subculture group began to emerge to include those that have been unable to conceive.
Parental cultures do not have fancy names, instead referred to by very descriptive terms:
- Adoptive Parents
- Parents of multiple births
- Parents that have lost a child
- Non-parents (and want to be)
- Non-parents (and do not want to be)
