A Large Family


I’m glad many children aren’t banned
It’s important that folks understand
Though our children are many
I wouldn’t trade any —
A large family really is grand!


Welcoming the youngest child

Sometimes I think about China’s One Child policy (now slightly relaxed) and how that must affect social dynamics. Can you imagine a country with no middle children? Gone are the peace-makers and the negotiators.

Things learned in a family cannot be easily learned in a classroom.
