What do you think of the three-child policy?

Too much pressure, incredibly high house prices, possibly no pension in the future. l can't even feed or rejoice myself. How can l raise one kid or even three if l have to prepare for my own coffin. Raising kids is likely to be a burden for middle-class people, especially for the young. Strictly most of the young are not the middle class. We have our childhoods, so we clearly know what we feel and what we want as a child. It's not because we are not willing to have children but the social pressure we are taking are much too heavy.

We are reluctant to see the relationship between parents and children is like a burden or symbiosis.

We want to be responsible for our choices , lives and children!

I think this policy is designed to those who want to have three children. Those who don't want to have two children don't care about this policy. Expecially, there are two kinds of people that wealthy people in the city and poor people in the rural will support it.

The biggest problem isn't how many children a family can have, otherwise how many children a family can take care.

As for me and my family, it is a new burden when it comes a new baby. And we are the generation that have no brothers or sisters. And what's more, with the economy of society improving speedily, it is the education expense improving day by day that not every family can afford that.

1. It must be a huge pressure for many younger couple due to the exaggerated life cost, not listing the details, everybody knows.

2. A lot of younger couple have changed their life autitude, they are not the ones who are still willing to bear anything including good or bad circumstance. Nowadays they are eager for high quality life, they just want to enjoy quality life.

3. The last reason is that the competition for children in future is quite Savage, parents are reluctant to see this happen to their children.

I'm afraid of marriage and childbearing now, and  think that I should be responsible to my children's future, so I'm not going to have a baby if I can't afford it. Parents will have to bear great economic pressure in this era of soaring prices.

I think the policy won't make any effort to increase the birth rate. People are on great pressure as they have to hold their families nowadays. The more children means more burden which leds to the low new-born children rate cause parents don't have enough resources to raise more children. So instead of  releasing the three-child policy, Chinese government should think how to increase people' live condition and remove the burden on parents' shoulders.
