Chinese kids will get brothers and sisters following the changing of the law restricting parents to only one child.

Last October the Chinese government announced a change in policy allowing families to have more than one child.

The new policy came into law on the 1st January 2016.

At the moment nearly all kids in China have no siblings because of a law that meant most families could only have one child.

The change in the law was bought about by the high number of elderly people living in China and the lack of young people.

  1. Im from china and its not sad. The rule is there because its used to reduce the population in china.

  2. They only did it so people didn’t consume the worlds resources as quickly. Its not their fault that they want to save some of the worlds recources

  3. I can’t stick my sister and 4 stepbrothers but I always have somebody to beat at chess. It sucks playing chess with yourself because you always know what you are going to do to put your own king in checkmate.

  4. This is awesome, it would be so sad to live in china without siblings. i have a brother and a sister and thats enough lol

  5. I don’t think its cruel at all, there are around 1.4 billion people in China, and that was before the one child per family law was placed. If they hadn’t had let the law be placed then there would be massive overpopulation, and (as Spike stated) a lot of resources would be drained. Also a lot of families can move so they can have more than one child (which is what our family did).
