Here's an inteesting insight and comparison to our family. We talked to a friend, Eileen Heisler, at Play Reading tonight. Eileen has been to China on business four times in the last couple of years. She says that family life is affected in strange ways by the rule of one child per family. For example, two sets of parents each have only one child, those children marry, and they can only have one child. So none of the children have brothers or sisters, and the four grandparents combined have only one grandchild.
That's a strange thought coming right after our child-filled and great trip to Vermont.
