Do we, as a society, consider our children to be assets, or liabilities/responsibilities?


Note that and asset does not mean "valued". We definitely value our children. To phrase another way, do we consider our children to be useful members of society currently, or are they another mouth to feed until they reach adulthood and can become useful?

    Thank you for the input Faceless39. Do you think there is a way to change the status quo? Do parents need to be more involved in government education? Should the government be taken out of schools entirely, moving to private schools?

    This is an excellent goal! Do you think we are on the way to achieving that goal, or do you think we are moving in the wrong direction?

    Thanks for responding! Is it possible that large families are also advantageous? Kids in large families get the attention of both their parents and older siblings. They gain experience with kids and responsibility by helping with younger siblings.
