“Have children,” they claim. “It’s going to be fun,” they say. Well, after almost a whole year of quarantine in 2020, we assume that the number of individuals who tell you how to have children will improve your life will actually decrease.
This is not to suggest that it is such a bad thing to be a parent that you will regret it. No, really, parents would tell you that they’re not going to have it any other way-they love their kids unconditionally, how happy it is to see them develop into a whole human being. But it’s not mandatory for those of us who are still either single or child-free.
We hear more and more people speak frankly about whether they want to have children. The CDC statistics talk about how the trend towards childbirth has declined in recent years. It was the lowest in 2018, in fact. And to that effect, we have even more millennials now tweeting how being child-free right now is just the best thing for them in the world.
