Annotation

Mostly an argument that the family as then known was coming to an end for economic and sexual reasons. Also argues that from the point-of-view of child-rearing, large families are better than small ones because children should interact with other children rather than adults. Suggests that in the future related and unrelated adults with and without children of their own but with a talent for parenthood raising a group of children, again related and unrelated, in large homes. Refers positively to two existing examples, the Beacon Hill School founded in 1927 by Dora and Bertrand Russell, which closed in 1947, and the Caldecott Community, which still exists.
