Why dont many couples of childbearing age want to have two children now? There are many reasons for this. The most important two reasons are that no one is born with them and the cost of raising children is high.
On June 13, the sixth program of Members Lecture produced by the CPPCC General Office was broadcast on the official website of the CPPCC and other platforms. This program is delivered by Wang Peian, deputy director of the Population, Resources and Environment Committee of the CPPCC National Committee, Secretary of the Party Group and executive vice president of the China Family Planning Association. The theme is Population Development and Family Planning in the New Era. Wang Peian analyzed the main reasons why many couples of childbearing age are reluctant to have two children.
Wang Peian, for example, said, I have friends around me who said that the old people helped look at the elder, but as the old people get older, they really have no energy to help take the elder son. The nanny is not only expensive, but also small and inconvenient.
In Wang Peians view, the fundamental reason why many couples of childbearing age are reluctant to have two children is that the life goals, lifestyles and life concepts of many post-80s and post-90s have changed. They advocate fewer births and better parenting, rather than the traditional multi-fertility and multi-happiness.
Wang Peian thought, In addition to unwilling to live and not daring to live, there is also a phenomenon of bad life. There are more infertile people and the incidence of birth defects is not low.
To solve these problems, we need to make up for shortcomings, focus on key points, strengths and weaknesses. Specifically, we need to strengthen the allocation of public resources and focus on meeting the needs of care services for infants and young children under three years of age. After analyzing and pointing out the main reasons, Wang Peian also appealed to implement the various welfare benefits and free family planning services enjoyed by couples of childbearing age according to law, incorporate family planning incentive leave and spouse paternity leave into maternity insurance, especially implement the recently revised personal income tax law, deduct expenditure on childrens education and supporting the elderly according to law, so as to meet the policy of birth. Parenting families provide tax relief, explore the establishment of flexible working system for women in childbearing period, promote women to balance the relationship between family and work, and protect womens rights and interests in employment.
