I was watching this programme that was showing this 3 siblings whose parents were so poor that they were unable to go to school until a volunteer group found them a school, helped them to pay for their school fees and gave them free tuition.
The poor kids were all over-aged in their respective classes. It was really a blessing that the volunteers gave them much help or they risk remaining illiterate for the rest of their lives. I was horrified at the irresponsibility of their parents. To add to my horror, the mother who had no money to let her 3 kids go to school, just gave birth to yet another baby! I am just appalled.
Sometimes I wonder whether it is real ignorance or feigned ignorance about birth control. How can there exist such irresponsible parents? If they could not afford money for the existing 3 kids, why do they give birth to yet another one? Are they expecting the society to feed their kids for them? Are they expecting the volunteer group to finance and educate yet their fourth child? And are they going to keep popping like nobody's business and keep asking the society for help?
Just one word to conclude: ridiculous.
