China's One-Child Policy

To alleviate the effects of overpopulation, China instituted a one-child policy beginning in 1978. Under the family planning policy, urban couples are only allowed to have one child. The policy is still in effect today. China is the most populous country in the world with more than 1.3 billion citizens.

As authentic Chinese man, I think the one-child policy taken by the Chinese Central Government has more advantages than disadvantages, though it's not carried out completed in some rural areas of China.

What are the short term effects of China's one child policy?

These are the short term effects (that have been recorded since the policy began until 2010)

The one child policy was an effective policy. China accomplished what they set out to do - reduce the rate of population growth. The law has prevented up to 400 million deaths in its first two and a half decades. Apart from this, the standard for education has improved. As well as that tap water coverage has increased from 84-94%, coverage of natural gas has increased from 18-73%, and medical coverage has been extended to include birth insurance,m worker's compensation for mothers following the policy. Other factors that have improved are the life expectancy (from 35 in 1949 to 70 in 1996), and infant mortality (from 200/1000 to 33/1000). All of these positive aspects ensure that those following the one child policy will get added benefits and have a better life for their child. China has effectively "raised the standards of living by keeping the growth rates down"1.

However, there are many negatives to the policy as well, though maybe not as obvious as the positives. Studies show that China's one child policy has shown a large increase in usage of social networking sites. It seems that they are replacing relationships with technology. It also shows their loneliness. Apart from this because parents also tend to pamper their kids a lot, since they only have one. This has caused children to become so-called "little emperors". They are very spoilt and can be more egoistic, and less cooperative with other children. Because of the small size of the families, family ties are also affected. Also, parents care so much about their children's education that they go into debt to send them to the best schools - even kindergartens.

Why did China enact the one-child policy?

Short answer: Overpopulation. China has over one billion people. And although China is roughly the size of the United States, it so happens that China has a huge mountain range covering most of the country. Which means that China has very few areas where there is good soil to grow crops. If the population if China continues to grow at the rate it once did, people will starve because the land cannot produce enough food to support demand. The government also found out they were running out of water too.

Who was one famous child prodigy?

Austrian Classical composer Mozart is considered to have been a child prodigy. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born on 27 January 1756 in Salzburg, Austria. At the age of three, it was apparent that Mozart was a musical prodigy and he was taught to play the harpsichord, violin, and organ by his father. Because of his unusual ability, however, he was also somewhat exploited as a "Wunderkind" in the courts of Europe. He composed his first song at age five, and his first symphony at the age of eight. Another musical child prodigy was Felix Mendelssohn. Born on 3 February 1809 in Hamburg, Germany, Mendelssohn was considered to be the greatest child prodigy since Mozart. He wrote his first twelve compositions, including symphonies and two operettas, before he was fourteen, and by the time he was seventeen, his compositions had developed maturity. He wrote incidental music for the performance of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, including the Wedding March that is played as the recessional at many weddings.

What are peoples attitudes towards the china policy of only having one child?

In China, some people were fine with the one child policy. Some women only wanted one child because they were too busy with their jobs. Some were loyal to the government and were therefore okay with it.

However some people in China did not agree to this and wanted to be able to make the decision of how many kids to raise and about their fertility.

There were a lot of mixed attitudes as this was a very controversial issue, especially in China where large familys were the norm.
