Speaking of Children

Summary

Barbara Holland’s essay “Speaking of Children” speaks in favour of having one child. It explains about the consequence of having multiple child. Having a single child has many advantages. One child is just like the attached body parts (appendage) of the parents. The child can be easily cared, reared and educated. One child never disturbs the happy family life. The parents can freely live their happy life enjoying peace and privacy. One child is just like a toothbrush or for that. They can take him wherever they want and easily can fulfill the demands of their kids. With a single child, the parents can enjoy better conjugal (married) life talking to each other peacefully expressing their love, feelings and experiences. The parents can afford enough money and can manage time for their child.
