TANGZHOU, CHINA (CNN) - Every Chinese family revolves around a child.
Parents call their daughter Tao Zi, or little peach.
Like both her parents before her, Tao is an only child.
"Once my cousin visited, and we shared a bed for a few nights," says her dad Chang Zi'an. "I really enjoyed that feeling and I wished that I had a brother.”
But for decades, the Communist Party relentlessly pushed its 'one-child' policy. When propaganda didn't work, they used heavy fines and forced abortion to curb population growth. Now, some experts call the one-child policy a glaring mistake.
"China has already began to feel an unfolding crisis in terms of its population change,” said professor Wang Feng of Fudan University.
The one-child policy gambled with China's economic future. The
In just 15 years there will be more than 400 million elderly in China and many feel that the one child policy is out of step.
So the party has changed its tune, pushing a new ideal family with a daughter and a son, where more is better.
Tao Zi's parents and millions of others are now eligible for a second child. They should be ideal candidates, but housing in Beijing is costly. And they say China is too competitive, and good schools too expensive to even contemplate a second child.
