Yes, in the sense that if we are going to live in a society that runs smoothly we need to invest in some kids to know how to keep certain social structures from falling apart. No, in the sense that an independent family must take responsibility for raising their children right.
A child is a responsibility of the society. Because child is the future of our world. If we did"t care of them they fell to wrong way and then we will dark our future. Child needs love,protection,care ,etc....... .So society wants to fulfill their needs as we are the members of the society we have a huge responsible to love them and protect them,,,
