2 is enough? 2nd can wait?

Postby daisyt » Tue May 01, 2012 11:43 pm

Which is the one you can remember? The Singapore birth control policy in the 70s. The 2 girls under an umbrella with an apple, I find this so familiar, think I have seen it when I was a little girl. :smile:

If have more, probably have more things to fight for. Not enough rooms, Not enough toilet at home, Not enough money... maybe cannot even afford housing next time.

Anyway, I didn't recall see this poster before. What generation is that?

I only remember the 2 girls under umbrella.

Quite interesting as it reflects the situation at that point. The government was trying to promote :

* Early marriage spells troubles. My aunties married at the age of 16-18. One of them is a great grandma at 68 years old. My mum got married at 25 which was considered late. Mum also said that a no. of them had shotgun marriage..... Interesting :scratchhead: as we expected the older generation to be more conversative.

* Having 2 daughters is good enough.... target at the population who think it is incomplete without a son. My dh is the only son and he has 4 sisters. He is no. 4 in the family. When the parents had the youngest sister, mil had to deliver at private clinic. There are still traditional thinking of having a son these days. More to carry on family name. However, girls these days can do just as well if not better. So it doesn't really matter. But I love my boy. It's just a opposite attracts thing where fathers just have soft spot for their daughters.
