Over the last twenty years, the average size of households (fall) dramatically. The number of one-person households (grow) due largely to the ageing of the population, as has the number of one-parent families. Couples having smaller families (contribute) to the fall in household size.
In 1976, 60% of families (be) couples with children. By 1996, this (fall) to 51%. Part of this change can be attributed to the increase in one-parent families with dependent children, but most of the change is due to the increase in the proportion of couple-only families. People (have) children later in life, and are living longer. Therefore, they(spend) more time living in couple-only families, both before they have families and after their children (leave) home. However, children are leaving home later. In 1981, 34% of children aged 20-24 (live) with their parents. By 1991, this (increase) to 40%. This increase has, to some extent, countered the fall in the couples with non-dependent children only.

In spite of the fact she’s 11, she has very mature thoughts. Although she has very mature thoughts she’s also a little bit childish and sensitive. In spite of the fact, she has things in common with Eric, the also have a lot of dissimilarities. Eric, is a six year old boy, who is very immature, imaginative and shy. Although he was very shy, he could face his fear which was the pig man. We can say that the things Eric and Rachel have in common is that both of them are kids.
