Having Too Many Kids


I’ve been hearing lots of stories about poor couples living in slums and yet they have 6, 7, 8, 9 or even 12 kids !! Oh my goodness me, how can a couple raise their big family when they only have exact amount of money to buy foods in a day? Oh dear, I’m sad and disturbed as well to think that these days, raising a small family with 2 kids is already hard how much more if you have 12 mouths to feed?

It will not end there, when they grow up, how can you support their education? Even if we have government schools where there is no tuition fee, parents should still need to give them money for snacks and for their projects. With that kind of situation, kids are left at the house or worst in the streets to beg or steal. Some parents ask their children to get used plastics and cartons to sell. There are many families all over the country who are experiencing such misfortune.

I hope parents should be responsible enough. If they can’t afford to have a big family then don’t have too many kids because the children are very much affected. They really need to know about family planning. Just my two cents …

  1. Same opinion here :) Parents should start family planning talaga. Once they do it, there is a higher chance that they can provide not only the needs of their children but also the wants..

  2. i guess it's the task of the officials in the local government to educate the people regarding responsible parenthood, while it is the task of every citizen to ensure a quality life to their children.

  3. If you can support a big family why not have one.. But the problem is, these slum settlers think ang mga anak nila Lotto tickets na someday 'tumama' at iangat sila sa kahirapan.

  4. Yes,parents should be responsible in having kids. I agree with you that most families in slam areas have more children than those families who can afford to raise kids. They say those couples have nothing to do more but to make love and so they have more kids,lol!

  5. My mom hardly raised me and my brother. We were so lucky that mom was ready and faced the challenges in her life. If my dad can't raise us well, what is he thinking having another child to another woman. I see the problem that most men are stupid and they just think of themselves. The man should always be on top of his family. Yeah education is very important and men should be educated enough to run and raise a family.......

  6. i remember the oldies saying that due to poverty and no work... the only thing these people (no pun intended) is to give birth... i don't think like that though... but having too many kids isnt really practical specially with our economy's current status...

    thanks for sharing :)

  7. some parents wants to have more kids, so when they are old enough like 6years old, they can start to work and the parents will just lay in their house and make more babies. hehehe
