Years ago, my brother got a tuition reimbursement for moving to a rural area to practice medicine. He already had four children at the time and now has twelve. All twelve children are home schooled and are still living at home in spite of the fact that five are now over the age of eighteen. A few have part time jobs but that's it. All rely on my brother's position as the town doctor to support them and none of the kids really seem to care about supporting themselves. They are good people but uninterested in any kind of business opportunities in their area including working their own land or raising farm animals. They just seem to have wholesome pastimes such as writing, babysitting and playing piano. I am deeply concerned. If anything happens to my brother, what will these people do? They seem to rely on their local standing as the doctor's children, in spite of the fact that the oldest is 25. I always thought that a certain amount of independence taught confidence and self sufficiency. But my nieces and nephews act as if the meal ticket will always be there. If you have a large family or come from one, are there rules about when the kids have to get a job or move out or anything like that? Do they have jobs outside of the home or work to expand your assets?
