The number of newborns has dropped year after year. Expert: if these problems are not solved, it may fall below 10 million this year

It’s always the top priority for a couple to have a baby after they get married. It’s self-evident to see a life body created by themselves grow up little by little. It is also a process of communication and cooperation between husband and wife. < / P > < p > but since the two-child policy was released, the number of newborns has dropped year after year, and more and more couples want to have children but “dare not”. < / P > < p > Xiaoyi and her husband have been married for more than two years. Since the beginning of this year, the family elders around her have asked her about her birth plan from time to time, and her mother-in-law even said directly, “you’re old, too. Hurry to have one, and let’s continue the incense for our family as soon as possible.” < / P > < p > in addition to the pressure exerted by the elders, there is also the double burden of housing and car loans. Xiaoyi and her husband have no energy to meet a new life. Thinking hard and fruitless, Xiaoyi decided to go to the cousin who gave birth to the second child to get scriptures. But who knows, it is this conversation that makes Xiaoyi more confused. < / P > < p > but my cousin just gave me a wry smile and said, “it’s just the surface. I haven’t bought any new clothes for more than half a year now. At the beginning, the parents also advised that the burden of providing for the only child in the future was too heavy, and they wanted to give Dabao a companion to share the pressure. But I don’t know until I have a second child. I can’t afford it. ” < / P > < p > in order to take care of Er Bao better, my cousin had to quit her job, but in this way, the family can only rely on my cousin alone. This year’s economic downturn, although there is no layoff risk for my cousin, his salary has also been affected. < / P > < p > the cousin wanted to come back to work, but the child was left unattended. As their parents get older, their monthly pension insurance and annual medical expenses fall on them, making their cousins breathless. < / P > < p > after listening to my cousin’s words, Xiaoyi becomes more distressed. She and her husband are just able to afford the expenses. If they have children, they may not be able to get a monthly mortgage or car loan. If they don’t, they will be pressed by their elders. Since the implementation of the two child policy, the number of newborns has increased significantly. However, from 2017 to 2019, the number of newborns is decreasing year by year. From 17.23 million in 2017 to 15.23 million in 2018 and 14.65 million in 2019, the number of newborns has dropped for three consecutive years. < / P > < p > in the face of the phenomenon that the number of newborns has been declining year after year, experts warn that if these problems are not solved, it is not impossible to fall below 10 million this year. < / P > < p > the reason is that the younger generation’s desire to have children is getting lower and lower. Children are no longer hope for them, but sometimes become a “burden”. < / P > < p > social development is changing with each passing day, and in many cases, income simply can’t keep up with the changes. In addition, due to the impact of this year’s epidemic, many jobs have had to reduce their wages or lay off workers one after another, and even go bankrupt and close down. Some of the business investors can’t even pay the rent. < / P > < p > once a child is born, there is no turning back. All kinds of economic pressures come one after another, and there is no breathing room. Since the birth of children, they have to spend money on food and clothing; when they get older, tuition, tuition, tuition, class fees and medical expenses are inevitable. Therefore, more and more people can’t afford to have children or raise them. < / P > < p > nowadays, when young people get married, it has become a rigid requirement to have a house of their own. More and more people choose to borrow money to buy a house, and they have to work hard for it after marriage. In this way, the plan to have a baby will naturally be stranded. < / P > < p > as the “luxury” and “necessity” of marriage in this era, house has gradually become an obstacle for many couples to have children. < / P > < p > due to economic and social pressure, many women have just given birth to a baby and begin to think about coming back to work, so as to reduce the pressure of life for their families. In this way, the work of taking care of children naturally falls on the elderly. < / P > < p > if the elderly are strong, they can also help with the baby; otherwise, they need Baoma to take the baby at home full-time. And these years with baby time, will become a big obstacle for Baoma to come back to find a job in the future. < / P > < p > moreover, the aging problem in China is becoming increasingly prominent, and parents’ pension is also a big problem. All kinds of medical examination expenses and living expenses need the help of children. One side has to raise children, the other side has to provide for the aged. In this case, who dares to have more children? 08/16/2020
