Second child/third child subsidy, from 500 to 1000, layer by layer, can leverage the willingness to have children?
A questionnaire on the cost of raising children under the age of 3 in Zhejiang province has sparked heated debate. The survey was conducted among parents of children under the age of 3 in Zhejiang province, and specifically asked: “If the government gives a subsidy of 1,000 yuan per month for having a second or third child (from birth to age 3), would you be willing to have a second or third child?”Similarly, hainan recently sent out a similar questionnaire: “If the government gives a subsidy of 500 yuan per month for having a second child or a third child (from birth to age 3), would you be willing to have a second child or a third child?”Even as early as July 2021, Panzhihua city in Sichuan province has become the first city in China to provide childcare subsidies to families who have two or three children, with a monthly subsidy of 500 yuan for each child until the child is 3 years old.# zhejiang send a questionnaire every month 1000 children do not have two children three children # around such a questionnaire, even at the layers of code, to investigate the fertility of parents of childbearing age will, feel a bit of the opposite meaning!Because all these surveys seem to miss a central question about fertility: “What does having more children do for parents of childbearing age?”From the perspective of subsidies, even if the “high” subsidy of 1000 yuan is given, it is only 12,000 yuan in one year, and a total of 36,000 yuan in three years. Obviously, the mere 36,000 yuan is almost a drop in the ocean compared with the “huge” investment in raising children and adults.Instead, let’s go back to the beginning and think about the benefits of having more children for parents of childbearing age.Is having many children a blessing?Have more children to carry on the family name?Have more children for more people?Have more children to honor your family?Have more children for old age?…You can think of all the benefits of having more children in the history of the world, but when you put those “benefits” in today’s context, they don’t seem to be “benefits” anymore!Is having more children a blessing these days?Nowadays, to have more children to continue the family name?Is it healthy to have more children these days?Is it now time to have more children to honor the family?Now, have more children for the elderly?Everyone has their own answers, and I don’t have to explain them.In other words, the “benefits” of having more children are now being devalued in the minds of parents of childbearing age.So, back to the end of the question: “What if parents of childbearing age decide to have more children?”Decide to have more, is to decide to get up an hour early every day;The decision to have more is to decide to add a class every week;The decision to have more is the decision to worry about more;The decision to have more is the decision to have more white hair…In other words, having more children is marked as a scarlet letter in the minds of parents of childbearing age.On the one hand, the “benefits” of having more children are depreciating, and on the other hand, the “assets” of having more children are marked in red. In this case, how can only 500/1000 leverage the willingness of parents of childbearing age to have children?So, how can we successfully leverage the reproductive will of parents of childbearing age?This is an intelligent answer, not a questionnaire!We have reason to believe that our country has the wisdom to give satisfactory answers!My dear friend, do you agree with me?Feel free to post your views in the comments section!Update health hotspots and medical pain points every day;If what I said is exactly what you think, then please like, forward, pay attention to Zhu Xiaojun said health!# Healthy Star Program
