I am not a big fan of using the tax system to promote social policies, but historical it has a long history in our nation. Many people sacrifice and limit the number of children they have or have none at all as an act of social responsibility. Why not make it an equitable and just system and reward them for their contributions to our society. I do commend you on limiting the size of your family.
Your own comments refer to those who receive such rewards while doing things that work against society. Why not a "tax break" for those that refrain from contributing to the decline?
All people rely on government. If you benefit from police, fire, public health research, use of roads, public buildings, safe drinking water, beathable air (unlike some Chinese cities), or use the public universities, schools, parks, or other services, you rely in some way on government to render these available.
