The purpose of this article is to show the improvements that china is slowly make to improve the living conditions of its population. China Hints that they are planning to make these changes in the next couple of months. One of the main points that is made in the article is that they were going to be less strict about the one child policy. Now, both parents that are an only child are eligible to have a second child. Another point that was made is that labour camps will be abolished. What makes the issue chosen a social problem is that there is a difference between the ideal situation and the situation that is happening right now. This social problem is also affecting groups of people because it is affecting the population of China. It also makes it a social problem because there is a solution to this issue that they are slowly trying to solve.
I knew that China had a policy for the number of child that families were allowed to have in China. I had no idea that it was only one child per family in urban areas. I find this unfair that families are limited to one child. I am glad that China is making the effort to change the one child policy and is abolishing child labour.
