I am a mother of 4 children. One is 6 fixing to be 7, one is 4 fixing to be 5, one is 2 and one is 10 months old. I get looks and people say that they feel for me. I was not suppose to have any children at all and the Lord gave me 4. I want to tell these ppl to just leave me alone but I dont know how to handle it because some of the people that say this is my family. I have a hard time with 4 i am busy and I had to stop working to take care of them correctly due to day cares not being so good here at the moment. Can anyone help me on how to handle something like this. Of PS they also tell me when I go shopping I hate to pay your food bill or you got your hands full dont you. Thanks for helping me

Hello , just tell them these babies are blessings from above. Another thing are they the one's taking care of your children, bringing them to school, dealing w/ bobo's and daily life issues? I don't think so, who are they to decide how many children you should have. I had to let my family know that the decision is not theirs, it is my husband and I to decide how many children to have, they don't even help out, who are they to be in my business. Be assertive & tell them to MYOB, some people are just jealous that they are not blessed like you Rhoda.

My kids are all boys 10, 4, 2, and 9 months. So not only do I get all that but I also get "boy you mjust be busy!" I just tell ppl I wouldn't have it any other way not to mention the fact that at least I know I will be taken care of when I get old. Or I just tell them " yeah I know, How blessed am I." Then walk away smiling. Good luck to you and yours.
