I guess they are either Catholics or have never heard of birth control. Of course it is the kids who will suffer long term - who can provide for 6 children adequately. Words fail me.
I don’t agree with having child after child when you’re on benefits. I think that is irresponsible.
I’m from a family of seven children – ranging from 47 to 30. No, we aren’t Catholics and yes we all have the same mum and dad. I’ve been asked that a few times which really pisses me off. My father worked from the age of 16 to 49 when he died. My mother went back to work after each child and she continued working until she was forced by her employer to retire at 65. She wanted to keep working. My parents wanted a large family and they worked bloody hard to provide for us. We were raised extremely well - thanks very much. We didn’t have a huge home but it was ours and I love being part of a big family.
The only thing my mother ever got was child benefit. She gets my dad’s pension, which means she doesn’t get a lot of the benefits that, a lot of retired people get. One of my siblings passed away but the rest of us are all working. Nothing should be handed to you on a plate – which is what I was taught by my mum and dad. I have to say that when I see families living in £1.2 million homes that taxpayers like myself are paying for it really riles me.
I personally don’t think anyone should get child benefit. At the most you should get for the 1st child. Seeing people who have never worked getting £30,000+ in benefits really riles me. I understand it’s not a popular opinion but if you can’t afford children then you don’t have them.
Just because you come from a big family doesn’t mean your parents relied on the taxpayer.
