Why aunts are the ultimate wingwomen of modern parenting
Australia's DailyLife.com mentions Melanie Notkin's PANK demographic and Auntie's Day in a wonderful essay on the importance of aunts at Mother's Day.
"Our aunts unlikely need cheering up. They may well be enjoying the many pleasures of their PANK (Professional Aunt No Kids) lives. Or they could be doing a double-act as a mother to their own progeny. But while not forgotten either, aunts are not exactly remembered – on a national scale, at least. There has been an Auntie's Day in the US since 2009, however one suspects it has the same societal impact as 2016 being the United Nations International Year of Pulses. Still, it's the thought that counts, right?"
