Among the Hidden

Do you think it would be a good idea if the government determined how many children you could have? Would we have so much poverty and hunger in the world if we had smaller families? Think of reasons why it might be a good idea and why it might be a bad idea.

    I think it would be a good idea for the government determined how many children you have. because we have to work harder if there were more families. If work harder and harder the workers wont have time to visit their family.No we would not have so much hunger and poverty in the world if we had smaller families.
    It would be a bad idea because the children will have to stay home by their selves.

    No I do not think it is a good idea.if someone want to have alot of kids. That would not be fair.I think we would have hunger still because people still eat alot.Like the baron they eat alot.it is the same way.

  3. NO I don't think it would be fair because all parents love there kids and no parent want there child to die. And yes there would be less hunger but there will still be hunger in the world, it's just one thing you can't stop. one good thing would be that there would be less hunger and yes there would be more food for the world. But the bad thing would be for peoples children would be killed and sooner or later there would be bedlam.

  4. YES i do think it would be fair because the more kids we have in the world the more food we have to have to feed them .Some of the parents are drunk and broke so they dont have enough money to feed there children.there are some or most parents that do tret all there children good. and thre are some that turn out to be fine outstanding men/women but there would be still poverty but not as much.

  5. No I do not think it would be fair. Bcause it would take away food but that family could worry abot it they should be allowed to choose how many children they have. But it could also be fair because it takes away food for other people and there's not enough food.

  6. Yes so we could have more food and less people on the street. Yes so more people can have more food. We can have more money.

  7. Yes I think it would be fair and no because it will take food from the hungry and homeless.

  8. No. Yes. I think it would be a bad idea, because there are kids that want more brothers or sisters to play with. I think it's a good idea, because there would be be more food.

  9. No I think it would be unfair. If we did not have our own rights to determen how many kids we want I would not be here I am a fourth chiled. I also admite it would be fine if the goverment did an amount that was ok like 3 or 4 because what if somone had tripolets! On the other hand I think it would be a good thing because there would not be as mutch bedlam and peopel would be less cantancoris.

  10. Yes and no, because we don't know where Luke lives and the time period he was living in, so there could of been something going on with the crops, so i would say yes, because they could be eating all the food. And no, because the government shouldn't have that control over you. And, also I am a third child, I would not like to be in hiding either.

    I think no because I would not like the government to have the power to tell you how to live your life and grow you family. It would be really unfair for someone to have triplets and the government to have to take one away. On the other hand, if there really was a famine, there would be more food and less people who die of starvation. It might be okay if they said 3 or 4 kids. Now that you have heard my reasons, whose side are you on?

  12. I think no because people can just plant things again. When the kids get older they can help produce more food. Also, it would not be fair for the Government to just take away your family. I think that would be cruel!

  13. Yes because their would be less homeless people and more food supply in stores. No we wouldn't have very much poverty or hunger in the world because their would be less people. It might be a good idea to have less people so their would be more food supply for everyone. It might be a bad idea because because more people could go to jail just because they had a third child, which wouldn't be fair or more people would dye in the world just for being a third child.

  14. yes butt no because if somebody had to many kids they might not have enough money to cover them and its not fair for those who have to be sent to adoption or to be abortioned. Yes most people wouldnt be that rich but they would probibly have enough money to kepp them off the streets . I thimk the population law is a bad idea because those who could of have a life wouldnt be born and that could of been us who wount be able to ever step foot to earth. It could also be a great idea because the poor people we see on the road everyday could have a great life instead of being on the streets. An d there could be really good health care for those who dont have life insurence . But its unfair to be that child that couldnt come to earth to learn Gods name and what the meaning of life is.

  15. No,probably,it would be a good idea to save about 5000 pounds of food a year.It would also be a good idea so parents would not have to spend money on them.But a bad idea is if there is no boys born a family name would end.And if there is no girls no new kids can be born

    No because one thing i want to have more than 2 kids and i wouldn't even exist because my dad's the 4 child and my mom's the 3rd child. It's fine now and we have plenty of food so really i think that there would be enough. i think it would be a bad idea is that one the businesses would not go well at all and two you would have a lot of friends. I think it would be a good idea is that so we wouldn't have to many kids and two because restraunts would not be so crowed

  17. No i don't think the goverment should determin how many kids you should have.It would not be fun and if we do run into a famin we can clean up they inviorment.It's a bad idea too me you might want too play your brother or sister sometimes.

    ReplyDelete
  18. No,i think it would be a bad idea. we would never run out of food.

  19. It would be a bad idea, because there would not be as many people
    to help grow the food at all,and one or two kids would have to the
    choirs.It would be a good idea because their would be more well,
    everything.

  20. No I think it would be a bad idea because I dont think the government should tell you how many kids you should have.its not fair and if there was a famine you could just save extra food if you have a lot of kids.

  21. I think that the population law is a bad idea because there wouldnt be enough people.You could save and grow food if there is a famine. There would be less people to make food. Many famous people would have never been born.In some ways it might help. Many people would not starve.

  22. No, I don't think this is a good idea, because life should not be so strict about how many children you have. Yes,it would be great that people would not starve.

  23. no I think it would be a bad idea if the goverment decided how many kids we have.Yes and no, because we would have more food but there will still be hunger.It would be a good idea because there would be more food and less people would be in hunger and it would be a bad idea because people would want more kids it is not fair, and if they did hand a third child they will be forced to get ride of it or put it in hiding and if they find the kid the child and the parents would be killed.

  24. Hi, I think that telling people how many children they could have could get to a problem of fighting between parents and the goverment.It could turn people away from the goverment.I don't think it would become a problem with people goin hungry because people grow soo much fruits and vegtables.

  25. No, I do not think the government should control the number of children per household. I feel families should have as many or as few children as they want and can take care of. It is a matter of choice for families. Some families might want many children and some might not want but one child. Also, some people can't have any children because of health reasons.I do not feel less children would provide more food for the people. People provide for themselves and some people provide for others.

  26. no it whould be a bad idea.
    no cause we have enough fruit and meat.
    I just think its all a bad idea cause we have enogh food in the world to last all most forever. We get meat from animals and animals have babys and their babays have babys ect. And we can always plant more fruit so i dont think its a good idea

  27. No I am not a person who thinks that is good.
    No we have enough food to eat.
    It might be good because we will have more food and drinks.We would not half to buy bigger houses.We can chose how many kids we want.

  28. I don't think that would be a good law.The reason why is because people should be able to have as many kids as they want.If I was the government I would let people have as many kids as they wanted.

  29. I don't think it would be a good idea if the goverment chose how many children we were aloud to have. If that was so it would not be fun to be the child that was not aloud.I think this because alot of women have more than 2 children and they don't take that much food away.There would not be as much starveing people if that was the case but if everbody did not eat as much it would not be a promblem.That is what I think about it.

  30. No, Because you really can not help how many kids you have. You could get hurt for having a third child! What life would it be if you were hiding all of your life? Even if you have less children, still not everyone will have food. Think about it.

  31. No I don't think it would be a good idea, because people should be able to have as many children as they want.Yes we might not have a lot of humge but everybody would feel and be free!! I think it might be a good idea because people might not be starving all the time. No I don't think it would be a good idea because people should have the right to have as many children as they want!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  32. No it would no be a good idea to have the government tell you how many kids you have. There is a woman in Arkansas who has 19 kids. She would have to hide 17. I do not think that it would be fun hiding 17 kids. And no. If the USA had smaller families, the food supply would not be low. It would be a good idea if we had smaller families.

  33. No...because I am the fourth and i would be one of the ones who would have to hide and I would hate that so much!! No because there are very good farmers and they would work every single day to provide more food for us. I think that this is a bad idea and that it would never be a good idea to let the government decide how many children that we can have, I think the parents can decide how many children they want and i also think that it would never be a good idea for any of this and we are so grateful that the government isn't the way it is in the book right now and that is all i have to say!!

  34. No.....I thing it would not be a good idea.People that want to have large family couldn't have one.There would not be as much hunger or poverty in the world.One reason it would not be a good idea is because a lot of my friends wouldn't be alive.Also I have two brothers so i wouldn't be ether.I think it would be a good idea though so there wouldn't be as much hunger or poverty.But they could grow more food.I'm glad that is not us!!!!!!!!

  35. No i do not think its not a good idea.No we would have plenty of meat, fruit, grain, and drinks.It would be a good idea because you wouldn't have to buy a big house if you were poor.And it would be a bad idea because you wouldn't get to have a brother or a sister to play with.

  36. I think that there should be as many children as you want. Sure the parents would have to work harder but i would not want to hide if i was a shadow child. You might not get to have alot of poverty you have. There would be less food too that would be bad.

  37. No,i don't think the government would determined how many children they could have.Yes,we could have our property and hunger if we had smaller families.It would be a good and bad idea because some people want a house or property and lots of food for hunger.

  38. Yes, I think it would be a good idea for the government to deside how many children we have, because if we had to many children, then we would have to work harder, like cleaning up after them. No I think that we would have enough food if the families were smaller. It would be a good idea to have smaller families, because if we had them smaller, then mor food for us.

  39. No I dont think it would be a good idea,
    because people should be able to have more 2 children.Because then there want be satsidence!! I think people should have freedom to how many children they can take care of!!!!

  40. no, no, it is not a good ida becouse i wont have a brother to play with.And why its a bad ida is becouse i would have to hide.But a good thing would be is we could save money.And nobody would have to hide.

  41. This a free country. I don't think it is right for the goverment to tell families how many kids they can have. I think the poverty depends on the year. If we have a bad growing season, then maybe the food supply would be a problem. But if the growing was good, then the food supply would not be a problem. It would be a good idea to control the population. It would be a bad idea because the goverment would be taken most of your freedom away, and no kid should have to hide and not have friends or know their family.

    I think that people should have as many kids as they would like. The government should not decide how many kids you should have. I don't think we would run out of food because farmers can keep planting more crops. It could be a good idea so there would be even more possible food. But it could also be a bad idea because its not fair to have to have a certain amount of children

    ReplyDelete
  43. No and no.It's a bad idea because many women have more than one child.It's a good idea because there would be more food.

  44. No, I think it would not be a good idea if the government passed a law to limit the family size. It would not be good at all. I think we have too much food in the United States anyway. We could end world hunger in other ways like growing more crops. If we did not have so many people if the law was passed, less drugs and bad things would happen.

  45. I think that it would be a bad idea because it is going right against what GOD is telling you. If HE says go forth and multiply and the government says don't multiply you are going against GOD. We may have more riches and less poverty but i still think it is a bad idea because GOD would want us to follow his will not the government. It's a bad idea because it is like disobeying GOD.

  46. I think that the government should not even think about that law because kids are living things as well and should be treated fairly. I say if that law were true i would protest, sue, and fight that law like a seven year war!
    I will make our country right for all to live and not hide in fear. If hunger does happen i say God is always with us so if you are starving remember that God is always with you. And if you want another child go for it because you are free so live and not hide. Thank you for listening and have a nice day.

  48. No.It's not a good thing.No one should tell you that can only have 2 kids.But we would probably run out of food.

  49. i think it is a good idea for the government to tell you how many children you should have. If your mother had a lot of children, she will have a hard time controling them. The parents might not have enough money to give the children food.

  51. No I think we should be able to have as many childern as we want.No we could have more food because there would be more workers to work the fields.there would be more people at one place then it would be a bad thing to do

    no, because i think we should get to have more than 2 children, no because we could we could split the food up to have an equall amount,it would be an bad idea because then you would not have as much fun.

  53. No.I think we haves tons of food to last a long time.A good reason would be less crimes a bad reason would no food.

  54. No, I think there would still be as much food as ever. Good reason: not much people that could bully you.
    Bad reason: Not many friends to hang around with.

  55. I have mixed feelings about this subject. It would be a good idea because so many people die of starvation everyday.It is hard for me to think about all the kids, men, and women dying right now of starvation as I am typing this. If there was a limit of how many kids you could have that would help the problem. But then I think that if there was a limit, kids like Jen would try to stop it. Then they would probely die too.You know, why don't people just stop killing each other, I am kind of sick of all this typing of dying and stuff like that so I am going to end this paragraph. If I
    had to pick I think a limit of how many children you could have would be a good idea.

    No I think you be able to have enough kids as you
    want but not too many.there should be more food
    so people do not eat to much. so everybody has
    enough.
