In our never ending quest to pigeonhole ourselves, we’ve invented a new demographic. From Jamie Dunham comes PANKs.
On Mother’s Day, I thought it would be important to salute those amazing women who are influential in the lives of their nieces and nephews but have not given birth to a child. I know lots of these important women who have been nicknamed PANKs, Professional Aunts No Kids. They are actively involved in the lives of children around them. In fact, one in five women is a PANK, or approximately 23 million Americans. PANKs are roughly half of all the women who are not a mother or grandmother.
I didn’t know that.
