So I happened to start a discussion with a childfree group online today and many believe I don’t have the right to have that label which is fine in the end. No labels have ever really fit me anyway so I’m not going to make a big deal about it.
In the long run the discussion was about what makes someone a parent? What is the difference between a stepmom who sees the child every other week and a nanny who takes care of the kids daily? What about teachers who help raise other peoples kids in one way or another?
I don’t want to start a heated debate here but I was just thinking about labels and why they might be so important to people? As someone said on there with labels there is no One Size Fits All.
