Comment on the following statement:
| Some families have an only child; others choose to have two, three or even more children. |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people think that one child is enough, whereas others think that a family has to have minimum 2 children.
I think that it is better to have many children. First of all, it is easier to raise a few children than one. Elder children take care of the younger ones. Second, children in big families are less egocentric. Taking care of others they learn how to serve in a good meaning of this word. Big families are more well-knit than families with an only child.
At the same time there are people who say that it is hard to raise one child what to say about many. Raising children requires money and time which are hard to find nowadays.
In my opinion these people have a point, bringing up children is a difficult task. Nevertheless, this process gives a lot of pleasure. When parents see their children learn new things, achieve good results they forget about the difficulties they have.
In conclusion, I would like to say that it is up to a family to choose how many children to raise. There might be some reasons for having an only child. Personally, I stick to the traditional look at this point where families have a lot of children and everybody helps each other.
