In the last century， government carried out the policy of Family Plan， which helped to slow the increasing number of population. Now the policy has changed. Every family can have one more child， which is the great news for many families， because Chinese traditional view believes that the more children， the better. According to the research， many young people refuse to have the second child， because they are under great pressure. Raising a kid needs a lot of money， and the money for better education is indispensable. What’s more， the parents need to buy a comfortable house， and all of these are great burden.
