I'm with you in terms of discouraging bad parents from having kids, but I'm not certain income necessarily determines whether someone should have kids or not, and it certainly does not determine whether one is of sound quality to be a parent or not. Having come come from a relatively poor family myself I can attest to a quality of character that may have come in place of a quality of childhood.
Thanks for your response.
I believe to enjoy a decent life is based on your income,
and when the income of a person or a family remains under a particular level that is required as minimum to a reasonable standard of living that person or family considered as poor.
Poverty is never a simple affair.
In our society poverty is a connection of many elements, many problems which strengthening each others.
There are several factors contribute to poverty like: low income, bad employments chances,difficulties in the education, unhealthy lifestyle, unstable family life.
The most poor have only lower education.
Some cannot even read or write .
Mostly to a poor child at home is not possible to learn , the parents cannot not help them with the homework, they don't understand the school world.There is often no money for school material.
The poor usually leaves the school earlier to go to work . Through their low education, they can find only heavy and low
paid work or be unemployed.
Because they have little money, they live in a cheaper,small, unsafe house with insufficient grade of sanitary.
An unhealthy living condition, dangerous work circumstances and an unbalanced feeding will lead to healths problems.
From fear and because of their financial situation, they will not go to the doctor. The health of the most poor is then also very bad.
This is passed also to the children.
The living conditions makes that they live under stress, there is often high tensions in the house .
Under these miserable circumstances you cannot think about having a baby even if this is injustice.
What kind of future can they build to their children?
The children will come also in the cycle. Therefor they will get less
The cycle makes also clear that some communities from the first till the last day of their live, from cradle till the tomb, course in this circuit because they have been isolated from the society ..
Sometimes it goes from father to son, from one generation to the other.
It is a community that also through the history couldn't make connection with the
society and never fully participated in the society neither.
To come out of this cycle on own power is very difficult. The classic aid has been specialized in one or other sector to solve the complex problem of the poor families. But even with much good will and respect the different welfare sectors could bring only remarkable changes if the involved people willingly work together.
