Do You Agree with One Child Policy?

This article tells the positive reasons of the one child policy in China and how this makes an impact in China’s economy.

Do you agree with one child policy?

       One child policy was established by Chinese president Deng Xiaoping in 1979 to limit the birth rate in China. Although, it was implemented to decrease the Chinese population, it gave many advantages to the modern Chinese society. But the policy has been resisted by the traditions and the culture of China. Since, the world is now able to race time; I think China should outcaste its traditions and follow the modern world by continuing the policy.

       Having one child policy in the mainland China cancels out many problems created in the past few years, the policy might not be very reactive but it’s the key to a modern future. The policy goes with the point of urban civilians who only want to have one child, mainly because they don’t want to take up too much burden on their shoulders; such as most of the families have been struck by financial crisis, therefore they would rather have one child so they can provide enough resources to him/her.

        The policy helps China to transfer from industry based economy to service and knowledge based economy. This is not only a good thing for urban civilians but also for farmers.

       Farmers who are struggling in poverty would only have one child and with that one child they could not create enough labour force to do farming. Therefore, they would rather educate the child and gradually that child would adapt the modern world. This will enhance the thinking of people who are blinded by traditions to a more meaningful society, not restricted by the lack of labour force.

       Therefore I agree with the one child policy as it helps all kind of people including the government by restructuring the economy and also reducing the pollution level in China. As there is a saying ‘more people more pollution’, so the reducing number of population can reduce the consumption of products which eventually will be the reduction of the amount of pollution given out by factories.

    While this may be a good policy for China, I believe children learn social skills in families. Having at least one sibling means they learn to share along with many other skills as they relate to other children. I should add I have only one child, but I do not believe this is a good idea.

    ” Farmers who are struggling in poverty would only have one child and with that one child they could not create enough labour force to do farming.”

    If you have been to China, you will know that the one child policy is rarely enforced in the countryside…Usually in the cities, and generally among the Han majority…

    Most Chinese will tell you that overpopulation is a problem in China,now and for the future…

    Still, they ,for the most part, feel it is their “patriotic” duty to have a child…
