Many Haitians have lots of children, more children than they can take care of. and each and every year, you hear the same story, they cannot send their children back to school. but sometimes, there are just so many of them, parents just cannot afford to send them back to school.

Why did have so many children in the first place? Who did you think was going to take care of them for you?

My father tells me back in the days when they used to live on the countryside, most children did not go to school, so parents used to have lots of children to help around the house and in the field.

You know, ti moun pou al ede granmoun bay kabrit dlo, chanje bèf, al brote dlo, ede granmoun sekle. But many Haitians left the country side and they kept the same bad habit. They reproduce like crazy without thinking that, yes, you actually have to take care of all these children.

What is wrong with these people?
