International Childfree Day

Every year on August 1, International Childfree Day takes place. On this day, show your love and respect to those who choose to live a child-free life, respectively.

Raising children is a rewarding life. Having a family seems to be the next big step in our journey through adulthood. However, some children choose to remain childless. This special day, which began as Non-Parent's Day, reminds us that having children should be a choice rather than an expectation.

In 1972, the National Organization for Non-Parents was founded with the intention of changing the narrative for childless couples. The 400 member group was founded in the hopes of assisting one another and educating others on the benefits of being childless. The National Alliance for Optional Parenthood, the National Alliance for Optional Parenthood, the 1980s, the group faded into the background, still assisting members abroad.

Author Laura Carroll revived the day in 2013. And family friends often mock people who choose not to have children. "It's time for this "Day" to be celebrated once more as a way to honor amazing childfree people and their families, as well as helping foster the acceptance of the childfree lifestyle in today's society." Since then, Carroll has held events to honor winners of the Childfree Woman and Man of the Year awards.
