The Most Productive Mother Award


I read today that we are now encouraging Mothers to deliver lots of baby. That is why an award was given with the above title. Reading the story, it was speaking about the struggle and challenges that some parents have to go through to raise children. I totally appreciate and understand and would not deny the gratitude that we must all show to the parents that cared for us. However, I think it is absolutely ridiculous for us to sympathize with the parents that had 21 children and said how tough it was. This is insane. Of course it would be tough to raise 21 children. What were they thinking? Have they not heard of something called condoms?

21 children! Crazy really crazy man. Its hard enough to raise two or three these days...People must realize that in these times we have to take into account many issues like education and comfort. Well if the purpose of having so many children is to help the Malaysian Football Team and please go on as they need the most help...darren suresh

If i could give them an advice, it would be family planning.

its a matter of choice i think. if someone choose to raise a football team,fantastic. if you choose to raise doubles for badminton. good for you. to say that it is tough, depends on them and their goals. one aiming for world cup and one aiming for thomas cup. totally different league.

holistic family planning need to be look into before anything else in parenting.

sam said...

family planning is very important.

care and quality input to children is important.

this is huge responsibility as parents.

In the agriculture generation, I can understand why the parent want to have more childrens. They need the childrens to help them to work in the farm. The more children they have, the more man power they have. But at this 21 century, people focus more on quality rather than quantity.

This is interesting and salute to this mother. I trusted she don't know what is "condom", otherwise she won't be the mother of 21 children. I don't think is a good idea to have more children nowsaday. We shall look at "quality" but not "quantity". Glod bless to this mother! Sweat for her!

My point of view...the mother is not aware of her surrounding. Giving birth to 21 children is tough, but raising the 21 is tougher than that. Alot need to be considered... Mother to be out there, PLANNING is the keyword.

A salute to the mother of 21, blackjack!!!!!!!!

I just move into the fatherhood environment. I think is ridiculous to have 21 children to raise.

Its a big responsibilities to raise them.

For the new generation.....you have a choice to plan your family!

Is 'birth control' a term not to be used anymore??
21 kids!! That's absolutely ridiculous. What I don't understand is parents won't stop complaning about how hard it is to raise so many children but than they will have another the following year!!

Mathi said...

21 kids? i'm sure the parents have some confusion when calling the kids name..... normally when we ask them, they claims that they are uneducated and don't know about this. but this is simple logic which does not required a degree holder to understand this.

Joshua said...

My mom's a babysitter and having 6 kids in the house is quite the handful already. I really cant imagine 21!

KeNG said...

Wow!! Solute to the mother! I believe she didn't know the family planning and what is 'condom'. What I really concern is are this 21 children have a well and healthy education opportunity and self development?

daniel said...

21 children in your life! If raise one more baby, you can have two complete football teams! It is good to have children if you have stable economic support, if you have enough time spend with them and teach them. But 21 children in life, it will be a BIG headache in your life. Somemore if you can't manage them, you will spoil them, become a social problem. Think about it seriously before you give birth to a baby...

She is crazy and her husband didn't have any other way to entertain himself i guess!

I hope they bought a TV already. :)

Sya said...

To raise 21 children is definitely NOT EASY. My concern is about the children's growth. If too many children, some of them might be left behind. They need attention and love. It's not easy to be fair though.

I have 6 siblings. 6 of us already make the house like “tongkang pecah” and my parent sometimes can’t keep up with the ‘disaster’ each of us made, I can’t imagine how they can manage 21 children at the same time.

God bless.

21 siblings and they stay together under one roof. The award given maybe to say that for those ladies out there it is more than only sex get pregnant and throw away your kids.Children are blessing from God and God always look after those who take care others and only thinking about themselfs. This true unselfishness. this about bringing life to this world.

21..ah.. coping with 1 is enough.

bq said...

I think she haven't heard of contraceptives and she thinks producing children indicates how many times you have S_X.

If she is a trainer and the children are the participants, she would be able to claim from PSMB for public workshop or In-House training, literally.

family first..
some people do love to have as many children as they could..
they have the desire...
the passions...
