Second, in some cases likes both children and parents are young, high degree of disabilities, high burden of nurturing and low economic power, parents know the necessity of preparing well. However when there is low degree of disabilities, high economic power and high family flexibility, parents of this case execute lifelong plan better than parents of former cases.
