When you sit down and think about it. When I think about it, the central cities of the underdeveloped regions are indeed a good place to raise children. They can afford family housing, sometimes with a backyard, and sometimes children can flutter in the backyard pool and even play cricket."
Chalke said many Australian families have been eager to "migrate to less developed areas." “Older people and even young people are beginning to move to underdeveloped areas. We often forget that although 70% of the population lives in capital cities, a large proportion of the remaining people live in cities in underdeveloped areas instead of in In the bushes."
