No Kidding!

People wonder what adults without kids are doing with all that free time…

One of the best things I did last year was to start showing up at No Kidding! gatherings. That’s the name of a network of social clubs for marrieds and singles who are without children – really. There are more than 90 No Kidding! chapters (yes, it is proper to use the exclamation point) around the globe.

Now I am helping the local No Kidding! chapter leaders prepare for the 5th Annual Childfree Festival here in Toronto this June. It will be the first time it is held in Canada – and we are rolling out the red carpet for an anticipated crowd of 75-100 childfree adults.

I encourage you to find a No Kidding! chapter in your area, or perhaps consider starting one. Links are in the sidebar!

I'm active in my local NK chapter too and have been to 3 conventions. It's a great way to make new CF friends!

Hey, thanks for sharing Anon! Yes, we all have Jerry to thank for having the good idea to start this organization. He will be attending the Toronto Childfree Festival June 15-18, 2006, or so he tells me.
