J: Have you ever thought about having children, Kaitlyn?
K: My husband and I have thought about it, but we’ve decided not to have any. They’re just too expensive. Besides, with all the news about global warming on the news lately, who knows what kind of world we’ll have in the future. What about you?
J: Well, I’ve always wanted to have lots of children. Growing up with only one brother, I always felt a bit lonely. What do you think about families with only one child?
K: For me, growing up in a big family always made me yearn for attention. I always wanted to be an only child so that I could always do what I wanted and so that I wouldn’t ever have to share.
J: Don’t you think you would miss having other people around?
K: No way! I spent 20 years of my life with relatives around me 24-7. You know, I don’t think I’ve ever actually spent any time by myself in my parents’ home. What do you think fo the one-child policy in China?
J: If China didn’t have such a policy, can you imagine how many people there would be in China now?
K: That’s true. But as a woman, I’m glad that even though I don’t want any children, I at least have a choice in how many children I have. On the other hand, I can’t imagine what China would be like if there weren’t a one-child policy!
J: Do you think most families with many children envy or feel sorry for other families with only one child?
K: I don’t know what other people think, but I, for one, envy only children!
