There are no required fields. If you are unsure about information, it is
better to write nothing than to write wrong information. Even the sex of a
child could be unknown if, for example, we only know the number of children
the family has. Pets have been added by popular demand, as they often play
an important role in a family.
The date of birth can also be left empty if it is unknown.
