The divide between parents and non-parents
The divide between friends with kids and those without kids is growing wider. These two groups can be friends, but there were always ways in which each side felt the other didn’t understand them. Now the pressures of parenthood have intensified. People are homeschooling. They have their kids with them all of the time. There is no breakaway from parenthood, the way there used to be, to make time for friends who don’t have kids.
