Do parents ever wish they could go back to being non-parents again?

A little insight into the question of whether parents ever wish to be free and single again in this blog piece on the parenting blog Motherload called Fantasising about Single Life

I want kids but I can't have them. Should I adopt?

The issue of adoption comes up for clients sometimes for various reasons. Perhaps they are single and are wondering whether to go ahead and have a child on their own. Or, like in this case featured in this article, infertility means that it is difficult for a woman to have a biological child. This article explores this issue - Why I won't adopt

Adoption isn't for everyone - and this article explores one woman's decision not to pursue adoption. I find sometimes clients are very clear that adoption is not a decision they want to explore. But for other women, it is something that might be a possibility and through the process of coaching it becomes an option that they do decide to pursue.

New novel published on deciding not to have kids!

A reader sent me a link to this article about a novel by Sonja which revolves around women who have decided not to have children. Written by a former journalist, the question the novel looks at is this: ' Tradition says women should dream of having a successful career, finding a suitable mate and starting a family with kids. But what happens when you achieve the same satisfaction by taking a different path?'

I really like the way the author describes how she came to write the book. She decided not to have children after struggling with a health condition. And often, I have clients who come to me because they have a health problem or condition which means that being pregnant would be very difficult. And I can't wait to read the novel myself!
