A survey(调查) has been made recently to make out what are the public opinions on the one-child policy. Here are some results of it.
Many teenagers suggest they should have a brother or sister. Perhaps they feel this might make up for a gap in their own lives.
Bao Yunlu, a Senior 2 boy from the No 8 Middle School in Hefei, Anhui Province, often dreams of having an elder sister. “I want her to help me with my homework, share my feelings and take care of me,” he said.
But last week Li Honggui, head of the China Family Planning Association (CFPA), sparked(引发) a hot discussion when he told newspapers there would be no change to the current one-child policy. It will remain the provincial governments’ right to decide on individual cases (个案).
The one-child policy began in 1978. Now China has nearly 100 million single child families, one-third of the total. The policy has successfully slowed down Chinese population growth by 10 million babies a year. But there are problems.
As the centre of the family’s attention they do not know about the hardships of life. “The one-child generation has no idea of thrift (节俭),” said Xing Yuan, professor of sociology at Shanxi University. Some of them also don’t know how to get on well with others.
Bao agreed that being an only child has had an effect on his personality. “We are less tolerant (宽容) and considerate (体贴) than our schoolmates who have brothers or sisters,” he said.
But others don’t agree. “I don’t feel the difference between me and my classmates who have a brother or sister. They often complain to me about quarrelling with their brothers or sisters. I feel lucky to have nobody to steal my belongings,” said Bai Yijing, a Senior 1 girl from the Middle School Attached to Beijing Petroleum Institute. (from www.nmet168.com)
