The Childfree Girls Podcast

Three childfree women in three different countries challenge society’s expectations of women as mothers with no-holds-barred conversations and interviews. Hosted by Isabel (Colombia), Kristen (US) and LeNora (Canada).

You might have heard someone say that childfree people have chosen not to have kids because they had horrible childhoods. The logic behind this myth is that having had a bad start in life left us so scarred and broken that we don't want to even risk re-living it with our own children.
 
In this episode, we decided to explore this topic with the end goal of debunking this myth. You'll have to listen to learn if we were successful at it or not!

Many of us have heard the expression "it takes a village" when it comes to raising children. Parents seem to crave (need?) to have a support system around them to help them look after the kids when they can't, either because they are busy working or because they simply need a break.

However, many parents are also very defensive when it comes to other people even suggesting how to discipline their children, which is somehow even worse when it comes from someone who doesn't have children because "you're not a parent so you wouldn't get it."

Sound familiar? Tune in to this episode to hear what we think about this topic!

The childfree conversation has certainly picked up in the last few years, and it's being featured in more media outlets than before. So does this mean that being childfree has suddenly become trendy?

We started recording as usual: discussing what we were going to talk about and throwing ideas out there. Except this wasn't going to end up like any of our previous episodes, but we didn't know that yet.

If you have been listening to or watching our podcast, you'll realize very quickly that we really have no idea what we're doing in this episode. If this is your first time listening to us, this is not how it usually goes!

This episode is all about responsibility and why we think so many people equate parenthood with being responsible. The discussion includes our take on the question "so if you're not a parent, does that mean you're not responsible?"

We share with you what we think "being responsible" means and if we enjoy being responsible or not.

What does "growing up" mean? And how does it relate to having or not having children?

These burning questions are at the center of this episode, in which we talk about our personal experiences as well as some of the bingos we've heard that relate to this topic.

Some of us have been told "sharing is caring!" or some variation of it since we were kids. But, let's face it: not all of us enjoy sharing and, sometimes, not sharing is actually caring, too.

Do you like sharing?

Did that have any impact on your decision to embrace the childfree lifestyle?

These are just a couple of questions that the three Childfreee Girls tackle in this episode.

Some childfree people regularly use *colorful* language to refer to parents and children. These words and terms are usually offensive and degrading.

Some of the same childfree people will call other childfree people a "breeder-pleaser" if the latter don't agree with the use of that type of language.

Which one are you?
