Uncrowded is now Having Kids! We are changing the conversation: It’s about planning a fair start and a better future for all. Please find us at HavingKids.org and please spread the word!
Loving a child means bringing him or her into the world in the best conditions possible.
Around the world, people have started doing that by having fewer children, often just one or two, and working with other people to invest more in each child. That means more for each child, more to share with others, and more time for parents. And for everyone, that means smaller and sustainable communities that flourish because each person has more of a voice in their governments, cultures, and lives. It’s called Responsible Parenting, and it is the shortest path to more freedom for everyone.
At Uncrowded we do one thing: Replace outdated models of parenting with the Responsible Parenting model. Let’s keep moving in the right direction.
Is there such a thing as having too many children? Is there such a thing as having enough children? Are there better and worse reasons for having children? Why do we value nature, or places like uncrowded beaches and pristine forests, and the animals who live there?
At Uncrowded we start with five widely shared and celebrated values that are always and inevitably part of having children: continuity, nature, well-being, fairness, and democracy. Responsible parenting attempts to balance these five values so that we achieve all of them.
How Do We Get There?
It’s time to start the conversation. One way to do that and end the wall of silence is by coming up with a model, or suggested best practice, for people to publicly discuss, improve upon, and use. At Uncrowded we offer a model – a product – called Responsible Parenting from shared values.
