I see exactly what he was saying. Now, I am not ignorant enough to think that there is truth to her story but let's just assume that there is. She obviously isn't happy with her kids. She has 6 of them and is overwhelmed. Did that happen all of a sudden?? Definitely not. If she was fine after the first 3, that's 1 thing. I'm sure that she didn't just wake up 1 day and say "OMG!! I have 6 awful kids!!" If there was any validity to her story, she had to realize it long before the 4th kid (at least) was born. If they are so much of a burden, she could have easily had her husband wear a condom, get her tubes tied, have him get a vasectomy, have him do a P&P, etc. You get the point.
Those kids also made her over $100 on a box of stupid Pokemon cards. Is she going to invest the net profit into their futures?? Doubt it.
I know multiple families with 5 or more kids. Me and my siblings being one of them. Are there days when the parents feel like pulling their hair out and beating their kids within an inch of there life? Yes, I am sure there are. However, is there any one of those kids they would give up? Not in any of the families I have ever met. Heck, I have seen families with one kid be so fed up they wanted to kill their kid one day (not literally flamers
). So its not limited to just the number of kids. I thought this was all being sarcastic with the comments, but apparently not.
Let's just say, one bad day (or 10 or 100 or a couple of years) doesn't mean that the kids were necessarily a mistake.
No offense, but I hope you never wake up and decided you had one too many kids. Or at least I am glad I am not that kid if you do.
