CHAPTER IV Summary of Conclusion and Recommendation CONCLUSION 1. Most of the couples finished college level before they started living as a couple but there are also couple that only reached the elementary level and decided to live with their partners. Studying is irrelevant for their parents don’t encourage them to pursue studies because of financial problem. That’s why they don’t know how can they took care of their children and how to plan a family because of lack of knowledge. In addition, they don’t have a high salary and can’t find a proper job. 2.
Most of the couples started living together as married because they want it to be sure that they would be living together legally while only some are unmarried because they are quite young for their age. That explains how marriage is given importance before, but now, even if the girls got pregnant they are not still planning of getting married. 3. Couples normally planned on how many children are they going to have but this is usually not followed because of sexual desire of a person. Because not all are willing for family planning to be involved in their living as a couple. 4.
Family Planning on later years was not yet organized that’s why old couples now are not aware and don’t even care to use methods or contraceptives regarding Family Planning. But some of them are willing to use these methods to control the population growth. 5. Information about family planning is not only given in the health center, because now there are many medium that shows the importance of family planning. It also leads to the discouragement of couples to consult to the health center because they can already find information they need in the radio, TV, newspapers, magazine, posters and even billboards. . Advertisements seen on TV or heard on radio and any other medium were more about Family Planning. Only few were about the use of contraceptives and Vaccination. It is because the Nation’s problem is population growth and advertisements can really help the citizen to get knowledge about proper family planning. 7. They all agreed that family planning is the best way to success of each family. Because they can give their needs and wants of their children. But abortion is not an example of Family Planning because it is against the law of God.
RECOMMENDATION Every person cannot control their sexual desire for their partners that’s why Family Planning method and use of contraceptives are imposed. But another reason for this is the lack of knowledge of the people or illiteracy. The government needs to put more focus on the education of citizens so that they would be taught of proper managing their lives as well as when to have a family and how to plan it. The government can give free seminar to those newly married couples and give information about the importance of Family Planning.
Another thing to give prioritize are the citizens that live on rural areas where more uneducated and unemployed people are present. Because of this population explosion exists, that’s why more project about Family Planning for this place must be necessary. People are also conservative on the use of these methods and contraceptives, that’s why proper advertisements and information seen on TV or on any other medium must be made clear and simple so people won’t get the wrong interpretation about these things.
Family Planning must be given emphasized and importance especially to couples for them to have the appropriate knowledge and how to use the methods involved in this and how to plan the number of children they can have.
