Are small families better than large families ?
 
Large families were normal many years ago. It is no longer so. Today's families usually consist of only two or three children. There are many reasons why people have chosen to have less children and smaller families today. Small families definitely have several advantages over large families.

Firstly, small families can have more comfortable lives. With fewer people living under one roof, there is more space for everyone. Children in large families often have to share rooms while those in small families can have their own rooms. There is also more peace and quiet in the home of a small family with less people competing over space, privacy and which TV channel to watch. Moreover, with less members in the family, less money is needed for basic necessities such as food and clothing. There is more money for better quality furniture, gadgets, bigger cars and holidays.

A second reason why small families are better than large families is that the children will get more attention from their parents. This means that their emotional needs are more easily met. They feel loved and are happier and closer to their parents. Furthermore, parents with two children would have more time to guide and teach each child compared to parents with half a dozen kids. As a result, the children will be more mature and disciplined. Such children also do better in their studies.

In addition, the children in small families have equal opportunities compared to those in large families. Money and other resources are shared out among fewer children. Each of the children will probably have the chance to go to university. In large families, it is usually only the eldest or the smartest who will get such opportunities.

Therefore, there is no doubt in my mind that small families are better than large families. I think small families enjoy a better quality of life. Not only that but each child will benefit from the loving guidance of the parents and have equal opportunities in life. That is why I personally prefer a small family.
