The problem is the presentation and use of the concept of "ownership" of children. I agree that the issue at hand is that there is a very private view of how people view their children and other people's kids. "My kids deserve everything. I'm not paying for your kids." is very common.

You see this especially in places with a lot of households without kids, such as areas with lots of retirees (cough:arizona:cough). Property taxes commonly fund schools, but if you don't have any kids, you don't see why schools need so much funding when it makes your house cost so much.

People should realize that helping everyone's kids helps them, and helps their own kids. That is the message they're trying to make, even if in a poor way. The individualistic view of "every family for themselves" is short term.
