Speaking of children is an essay written by Barbara Holland. It is about the children and its effects on family. One child doesn’t disturb the life of the parents and it is an appendages. The parents can live freely and happily. They can make him/her whatever they like easily. A single child is easy to care and bring up. There are good chances of peace, privacy, happy family and free environment. But on the other hand more children make the family life troublesome and complicated. Freedom is limited. The happy, peaceful, free and privacy of the parents is totally disturbed. When they grow up they6 use parent’s things and make the parents tired. So the writer is in flavors of single child and against more children.
