My name is Tanya Williams, the author of A Childfree Happily Ever After, a #1 Amazon best selling book. I am also the founder of the world’s first Childfree Magazine and considers myself a choice advocate. I strongly believe that all people should make their own rules in life especially when it comes to having or not having children.
I always knew I didn’t want children from a young age. Heavily influenced by 80’s power women growing up, I wanted to be Alexis Carrington of Dynasty or Amanda Woodward of Melrose Place. I wanted career, travel, money, adventure. And that was never going to include babies, bottles or bassinets.
I have always been very vocal in my choice to be childfree and throughout my life, that has come with it’s own fair share of criticism and judgement.
Having a child is a life choice. So is not having child yet one is celebrated and one is condoned by society. And it is time for that to stop. The dialogue needs to change from judgement and criticism to support and acceptance. That is why I wrote my book. It is why I started Childfree Magazine. It is why I have created the Childfree Choices program and why I am focused on growing the childfree choice movement.
Moving forward, I believe the conversation needs to go further than the childfree community. We need to start educating parents and employers that we are not the enemy, we are not unhappy, unfulfilled people and that our choice to not have children should be just as acceptable, as the choice to have them. We also need to educate girls and young and give them permission to have a choice.
That is what I am focused on doing moving forward and I will love you to be part of that journey.
Please join our childfree community and be part of the change.
Never let anyone dull your sparkle.
