Smaller homes, smaller families

THE latest property trend of buying smaller-sized private property will take a toll on population planning in the years to come (“HDB upgraders buying ‘smaller private homes’”; last Saturday).

My concern for those who are buying homes of a smaller size is: Will these be beneficial to those aiming to start a family?

This is not a good societal decision, as there will be no space for children to be raised in such confined spaces.

Such property trends could potentially have repercussions on our birth rate.
