Why is this news ? I knew the Colon family back in the 70's and 80's and Mr.Colon ran his family with a iron-fist. Each child had to watch the child younger child, and the kids never really had childhoods but they had tons of adult responabilities.

If a group of us went to the mall or to the movies and on the rare occassion the colon kid was allowded to go they always had a younger child with them.

These are things i witnessed with my own eyes and ears
