Blackstone Talks to WGME About Research on Childfree Adults

WGME (Channel 13) interviewed Amy Blackstone, an associate professor and chair of the Sociology Department at the University of Maine, for a report titled “More couples choose life without kids.” Blackstone’s research focuses on childfree couples and their motivations for not having children. She said some of the most common stereotypes of the childfree is that they’re selfish, they don’t like children or they’ll regret their choice. Blackstone says her research shows the stereotypes are “truly myths.”
