What I like about the “Try Not Having Kids” video I’ve posted below is that while it’s aggressive in its promotion of the child-free lifestyle, it’s not afraid to make some snarky comments towards the child-free contingent.
I am a strong supporter of people not having kids, and not only in a “you’d make terrible parents” way. I like having friends who don’t have kids. It’s good for parents and non-parents to have exposure to what they’re missing, and there’s no need to pretend both lifestyles don’t have their perks.
But most importantly, the video is pretty funny. And true. Having kids ruins your (old) life.
Shockingly, having kids isn’t always that different from not having them. It just depends on how you choose to live.
Or if you can find an affordable boarding school.
