Instead of giving money, I wish we could find a way to set up a community garden for families like this. While the parents are at work, the children can tend the gardens and run the machinery. Surely sustenance farming would be more fun than watching the same Fast & Furious DVD all day.
Then the children learn farming skills and will perhaps learn to care for themselves as they grow older. It's win win for all.

Instead of a garden or giving money, I think we should force hysterectomies and vasectomies on these folks. If you can't afford food, don't have kids! I feel sorry for these children. They'll grow up just like their parents, with their hand out waiting for the free stuff.
