How Conversations With My 4-Year-Old Helped Me Understand China's Domestic Policy

Me: Joseph, why is your brother crying?

Joseph: I don't know.

Me: It looks like he fell down. Did you push him down?

Joseph: No.

Me: Did he just fall down by himself?

Joseph: Well, I pushed him, and he fell down, but I didn't push him down. 

And now we can begin to understand this quote from Wang Haidong, a family planning official in China: "The family planning policy, as its name implies, allows planned reproduction. It does not ban anyone from reproducing."
