From the UK: What happens when we become a nation of only children?
Latest figures show homes with just one child now make up 46 per cent of all families and could soon be in the majority of the current trend continues. Currently there are some 3.43 million homes with only-children and 2.91 million with two youngsters. Families with three or more children are also in decline.
On a societal level–who knows–I’m sure there are some serious ramifications. Personally, however, this would have been a great tragedy. No one to jump through Fun Fountain with, no one kicking me in the back seat on long car rides–no one to follow around the house… the list could go on and on, really. Even today, no one to call who understands my anxiety-ridden gene pool, and can tell me in no uncertain terms when to let something go.
