Goodbye, "spinster aunt", today it's "PANK Aunts" and these are their characteristics

Today there are many women who make their nieces and nephews their absolute priority.

Currently, more and more women decide not to have children , finish a degree (or several), grow professionally, focus on their work, on their hobbies, simply on themselves, on their family and if they have nephews, they are the who give them all their love and attention; erroneously, society adapts the role of "spinster aunt" to them , as if it were a joke or a misfortune that they have not "formed" a family or that, at their age, they do not have children and a marriage.

This term was born in 2008 by Melanie Notkin, an expert in market research, who also ensures that the movement is very common and recurrent that, moreover, has happened inadvertently. According to Notkin, while parents are confronted with their own limits , PANKs are willing and happy to offer support to children in a meaningful way. They become mentors even with emotional and financial resources, with quality time and the purpose of positive influence.
