This is relatively old news but generating quite a fair bit of discussions on the net. Would be interesting to hear views of MCFers.

I personally think the couple is making terrible life choices. In olden days, people have many kids because they have no entertainment and or access to contraceptives. Kids on a farm can also be handy during harvesting time but in SG, it is a big commitment.

i on the other hand applaud the courage and tenacity of the couple to raise 7 children. Its their choice and while some might choose abortion as a solution, the couple did the greatest thing by bringing up the child.

If this were in Malaysia or another country I say I support provided one has the means

But to produce and then leverage on the social support Is bring selfish

I admire them tho for the courage but not prudent in anywAy as kids upbringing may be compromised
Most broken families I know where they hardly hv enough for themselves end up with kids turning to crime, drugs etc.. then again , that’s another social issue

Here, they really love the kids so I dun see that happening

well bro,

 

if their PCI meets the criteria set by the government, its their entitlement as a citizen to apply for it. Again whether one should apply or no is debatable and up to individuals.

to abort or to take birth control is their choice. They stood by their decision and brought up their children to their best capability.

if one want to have a big family. he and she is entitle to and no one else could question them. bon jovi sings it’s my life!

now the question of no of kids. is it 2? 3? 4? 7? ... i would have agree if the couple stop at 4 kids which is quite sheong already but that’s the limit i would think.

having 7 kids push out of the limit for the bread winner, the wife and sadly the kids “suffer” too.

this is a classic example of doing too much is BAD

i respect them for that.

but u need to know how their kids feel about that.

i come from a big family also , and that was many many years ago.

 

my dad is a farmer, me and my bro are needed to help up when we reach primary 5 onward. 

every sat, sun, every  day during holiday .

 

we had like 0 holiday during my childhood, and my NS paid which i save up , is given to  my dad to pay for bills etc,

 

no complain , no regret, but the kids will feel the heat. 

esp now imagine every kids have a S9 phone, while u got nothing.  etc etc

Positive I can see is that if taught well, these kids will learn to be gracious individuals in future, learning to care for one another and sharing more openly , provided parents teach the right values

I have 2 kids and that is already super taxing. I cannot imagine myself having more. To have 7 needs courage. I admit I dun hv.

 

However, to depend on social support is not the long term solution. Like many said, if dun have the means, then dun have that many children. If ownself cannot plan for ownself, then how to plan for so many children?
