Actually the book "Cheaper by the Dozen" tells a similar story and mentioned
a number of people in the same community with large families.
100 years ago nobody would have blinked an eye.
Consider this though - on the same page as that story was a link to
I was struck by the contrast. A family of 2 with 17 kids where
there's obviously enough hands for the children to help raise
each other, and the mother stays home. Contrast to a family
of 2 with 2 kids where both parents work and the mother
is so tired and/or inattentive as a result of doing that, that she
can't hold it together enough to keep her kid from literally
dying of neglect.
Which family would you have preferred to grow up in?
I wonder if we as a human species might be better off leaving the
business of having and raising children to couples who make a
career out of doing it.
