France - Children
The average French family is made up of two children and life includes these children in all its aspects. Child-care is organized at state level often with high end pre-school facilities.
Families with more than two children (famille nombreuses) enjoy many benefits: tax wise, for transportation (50% discount) and cultural activities.
A wide variety of sports is available even in smaller locations. Soccer and tennis are popular with boys, dance and gymnastic with girls.
