Ours was a big family, 6 chacha-taau in total, 17 brothers overall and 9 sisters. Similar was the story of many of us in my generation.
So you see, lots of relations, chacha, taau, bua, mausis, cousin brothers and sisters.
These days we are part of a generation in which many of us prefer single child only. Its immediate impact for the next generation is – no chacha-taau, bua or mausis to even name with.
Beyond that, these kids face another big issue – loneliness.
You see, kids only understand each other better. They play together and evolve. Also kids learn from each other the most.
Even if we want to, we adults can never fill that place.
Single kids experience loneliness and can’t sit at home much. They always long for company.
