    A family that stays together, soon those babies in 20 years could be in college , and be our next lawyers , doctors and nurses,
    Lets keep in mind covers never are what they seem , until you read the whole book.

      Oh, c'mon now, LOOK AT THIS FAMILY!  There is NO WAY that these children will go to college.  They are likely to end up impoverished like their parents or worse!  LOOK AT THE PICTURE ...AGAIN!  What world are you living in?!

      Really there are people richer then you and have came up out of the south of provety, Oprah was not born with a silver spoon , and many more . A quote I love of les Brown
      Never let someone's perception be your reality you control your own outcome .

      DREAM ON.....these children WON'T DEFINITELY be doctors, lawyers, & professionals.  They will be in dead end jobs...."can I take your order, sir/ma'am!"

      Grace why do you degrade and judge people , belittle people, we all are children of God, this world is unbalanced,  if God allows a life who are we to say we are better then God they should not be . That is the ugly side you communicate through here

      Not degrading at all, just telling the truth! These children WON'T succeed, the ODDS are against them....

      The truth is some one is richer and better then you are , are they pointing out your short ends , are they belittling you for not being equal to their status,  I do not think so
      It is inhuman ,callous to belittle other humans because you have more.

    I have a two words really but I really don't want to say them...

    If you see a photo me and how I grew up, you will be convinced It was a fun-a-child campaign lol.

    Nevertheless, In the simplest of terms. I CRUSH! by any socioeconomic measurement! Although I don't see the kids being Lawyers or Doctors, I sure as hell am rooting for them. I hope they keep this picture as a memento.

      You're right!  The parents are selfish for having THAT MANY children.  They sure can't afford them.  Those children will be as poor or even poorer than their parents!  Astute, very intelligent observation indeed!

    Poverty & struggle.

      Exactly!This family is below poverty in factThey are beyond struggling!  They are subsisting on an extremely basic,primitive level.It is sad really! The children are unhappy but it seems that the parents really don't give a rip about their condition!

    Immediate interpretation - poverty.  Closer look: A set up.  Too many of those kids are the same age and they don't look like twins.   Could it be a few extra children were thrown in there to make it look like the dear lady in the corner had given birth to six children when it was possibly three, or maybe four.   Pardon the cynicism.

    If the family really is all of the same kin then they definitely need some help, one of the first being some education of family planning.

      Second best answer indeed.  Third astute observation of the situation at hand!

    Poor children suffering & going through hell because of the utter mindlessness, stupidity, & general irresponsibility of their parents.  What were those "parents" "thinking", if at all?!  They apparently  don't give a good rip about their children!  NO CHILD should endure THIS!
