The One Kid Rule

In Tianjin I watched kids flood out of a primary school about 4:00 PM into the waiting arms of parents. Knowing that China has a rule that parents can only have a license for one child, I noticed several things that made me wonder about the future of China:
1) the kids are
very precious to the parents
2) the parents carry the kid's backpacks
the parents carry the kids even though in America the kid would be big enough to ride a bike
4) these kids mostly seemed very well fed
