Website Challenges Dominant Cultural Perspective on Childlessness
Our culture tells us that a real family includes children – and grandchildren, if at all possible. A family of two adults devoted to each other is generally thought of a lesser family than one with children. Underpinning NonParents.com is the authentically held idea that non-parents are not to be viewed through a lens of judgment – but accepted as human beings on a different but categorically equal path.

Nina Steele, the architect of http://www.nonparents.com, pushes back against the pervasive idea that human beings are happier, more productive and serene when they walk through this life with children at their side: “At the core of all of us is the truth of who we really are, and what our purpose in life is, and having children is just one of life’s paths, not the only one.”
A non-parent who once believed that she wanted to have children, Nina Steele came to the realization that her joyful life with her husband – without children – is the life they were meant to live. Nina’s experiences have transformed her into a passionate advocate for change in the way childlessness is viewed in society, spurring her on to build an online space where others like her could find their voice.
