So when are you having kids? The definitive guide for those who aren't sure if, when, or how they want to become parents
eBook - 2022
A new kind of family planning book for the millennial and Gen Z generations, offering inclusive guidance on the realities of parenthood "How much does it cost to have kids? How long can I wait? What if I'm infertile? And, wait a minute . . . do I actually want to have a kid?" If you're asking yourself these kinds of questions, then there's good news-Jordan Davidson has written the first comprehensive guide of our times for would-be or might-be parents. So When Are Y...ou Having Kids is not your parents' parenting book, nor is it a "how-to" for getting pregnant. It's a nonjudgmental, inclusive guidebook for women, men, same-sex couples, prospective single parents, and gender-nonconforming people who want to make informed decisions regarding if and how they bring children into the world. Combining research with compelling real-life stories, the resources in this book will be as diverse as the generations it's meant to serve. "As we expand our understanding of what 'family' means, we have to change the way we think about having kids," says Davidson. With deep insight and empathy, she tackles familial and societal pressure to have children, infertility and alternative methods of becoming a parent, financial costs of having and raising kids, the ethics of doing so in the age of climate change, and much more. Here is a much-needed resource for family planning in the modern world-providing the knowledge and the tools to help us make one of the most important decisions of our lives.
