China's family planning policy has achieved remarkable results in controlling the excessive growth of population, but it has also caused a series of problems, such as labor shortage, consumption depression and so on, especially the impact on the traditional family values of young people. Young people do not want to have more children, or even one child, which will have a huge impact on the development of Chinese society. This paper probes into the reasons of the evolution of family values of young people in China from the aspects of living burden and social security system etc. The paper pointed out that the evolution of family values of young people in China will have a great impact on social development. Every family has two children, which is beneficial to social development. In order to solve young people's worries about having more children, a good social security system should be established.
