Christian Science Monitor: Kids Less a Part of American life

America becomes a more 'adult-centered' nation

Also spurred by the results of the recent Pew Study, this article deserves its own post because it had the foresight to also cite Ciaccio's childfree research study on the 4th page.

I would challenge the characterization of America as more adult-centered. If anything, kids are even more a part of the national dialog, and we have less of a perception of adult spaces. However, this may actually translate into less actual parenting, and is indeed coexisting with a simultaneous 'decoupling' of marriage and parenthood in Americans' minds.
