More About Families
.
In the past, families in most countries were large for several reasons.
.
First, because many children died before age five, parents needed to keep having children to make sure some would live to grow up.
.
Second, children had to help support the family.
.
Finally, a large family could care for the parents in their old age.
.
Today, advances in medical care, worries about overpopulation, and the cost of raising children have encouraged smaller families.
.
In some countries, such as China, parents can have only one child.
.
All this makes the large "Never Home Alone!" family even more unusual.
