But because my son got my German citizenship he get's nothing, even though both his parents pay huge amount of taxes. We even need to pay for the Kindergarten out of pocket, which just so became quite more expensive too.

But to be honest, I don't want him to grow up here in Korea with all the pressure and the bleak outlook into the future where one worker will need to pay for one retired person too, especially for all the retieries who didn't have children for whatever reason.

Could be that the grind at work doesn't leave any space for having a familiy.

Sure, I said for whatever reason, valid reasons or invalid. That doesn't change that it will get worse for the next generation.

Your last sentence just put a different spin on the "it takes a village" quote that I constantly hear from parents.

It takes a village to raise a child. But it also takes a village to care for the elderly.

What happens when that village is no longer cooperating?

That’s why the Silent Generation created industrialized elder care. Nothing like a hospital setting to help with the old dementia.
