Children of convenience


Children of convenience are conceived and born because they primarily serve the purposes of other. They are used as symbols or objects. They can represent, for example, financial reward, labour units, parental investment for their old age, maintenance of family hierarchies, proof of sexual vigour, or "cement" for insecure relationships.
