How to live large family
The townsfolk, academics and governors-general clog the air, talking about how to improve the demographic situation in the country. Belarusians want to motivate and encourage the fact that saved the situation from birth. This "mission" honorable, no doubt. The only pity is that rare expert is what it really - to bring in the current realities of many children. To learn how to live and dream about normal average Belarusian family with many children from the village Linova 2 Pruzhany district.
- I am 37 years, husband 47, - says Tatiana Shchurok mother of many children. - I have five children, two - from her ex-husband. The eldest, Alexander, aged 18, she is a student of the Polesie State University. Alexey 17 years old, he is studying at the Pruzhany Agrotechnical College, lives with us. Antosha 4 and a half years, 3 years Egor, Masha and a half years old.
a large family, I never wanted to. When I had two children, and someone said, they say, once again marry and give birth to another, answered: what are you, crazy? 7 years after the divorce, I lived with the children alone. Lots and lots of work, in the Pruzhany pharmacy, wanted to put them on their feet.
When she became pregnant for the third time, it was scary. As adult children react? Then they moved to tears I was pleased, saying that it is very welcome.
When Anton was born, I said I wanted another child. And so it happened. And where four, five, and there! But when Mary came to light again it was terrible. Just went to the crisis, changes in the country. Ruble fell, there was no money. I prayed to God that he reassured me, to ward off bad thoughts. And we all have experienced. Where five, six, and there? May be. But it is too early to talk about it. We'll see.
- Now I sit at home with the children. Her husband works as a driver at the poultry farm. Last month salary he was 3 million. 1, 8 million get for Masha. More the state does nothing. I also rely order as the mother of many children, but we must, it is still not fully earned. Wait until the will. Yes, children still receive a scholarship, and I - alimony.
Just last month our budget -. About 6 million missing, of course, difficult. It happens, and with great difficulty, if the event of unforeseen circumstances, some of the kids got sick. The most important thing is to have enough food. The products we buy every month, according to the list. And on clothes a serious waste. But without this in any way.
- We bought a cow, it is our nurse. Do his milk, cheese, butter. Home products save us. You see, everything is expensive as it is now, how much money do I need to go on the market.
We and cow and calf and pig, different birds and rabbits. We try. While the children sleep in the morning, my husband and I go to plead with the housework. During the day, when Mary is resting, I'm running to feed the cow. Alyosha comes, helps evening. Everything's cool as we can.
- We do not have the luxury of plenty. Fruits children buy apples, bananas, grape twig. Not in the amount as we would like, of course.
In the summer of doing their seaming. Tomatoes, cucumbers, jam - everything we have. We walk in berries and mushrooms. To have reserves for the winter. We wait too long to take a loan, while the dollar has not grown, and bought a computer. Then he would no longer be taken, and the computer is necessary. Conducted online, byfly. Internet slows down a bit far from the station, but nothing. Pay something around 80 thousand. Per month. The eldest son of his scholarship offer.
Too bad that our car broke down ... I do not ride. And there's no money for repairs. My husband says that everything must be changed: the starter, and the muffler, and battery chassis to touch ... Without a car very difficult. If it did not build the house, they would have repaired it. And so will have to wait for later repair.
Children on weekends we carry into the pool. Always I tried to make my senior was in charge. Alex went to the dance, Sasha graduated from music school. And the youngest clubs in the post, when they grow up.
- I am now even a little embarrassing. I used to have in the house was like a museum - clean, tidy. But strength is not enough at all. Our house is old, he was already 80 years old. There are only two rooms. The house is to be demolished.
Thanks to the state, the village council. We were allowed to tear it down after the construction of a new home. The children are in fact go somewhere right. New home - this is what we live, as we dream.
Credit line opened in October, received something more than 60 million A loan total -. 600 million Case volume -. To build a house. I do not fully imagined when we started, what it is. We find a team that will build, inexpensive to work take. And now they say that the cost of the work does not repay the loans, only materials. That's too bad, I do not know what to do. We work themselves, trying to save. I recently unloaded blocks, barely moved, back and now it hurts. Our house is 103 square meters. I want it to be spacious and comfortable, to kiddies there was warm, spacious. It is most important.
- My dream is that here we will build a new house and all live happily ... And my children grow up happy. The eldest son will soon graduate from school. He wants to serve in the army. Maybe go to college. Minsk, we do not pull, probably, though he is thinking about it.
Sasha learns marketer, think and get a second degree. God forbid succeed.
And personally, I really want the sea, which has never been ... I want us to go there as a family, rest. That's my dream. But while it is impossible. We need to build a house. It is in the first place.
Forces should be enough to raise all the children put on their feet. There is no alternative. I do not want to complain, we were aware that it will be difficult. We have love, there is mutual understanding, it helps us.
- I have a family of six children, her husband five. I do not know, maybe it's really a tradition - have large families. Inherited. My eldest daughter does not rule out that it will have a lot of kids. Why not? It's wonderful. That's my husband and I were planning a baby, but it turned three, and never regretted. It is a sin - sorry.
In Linova, in principle, there are conditions for large families. Kindergarten is very beautiful, a school, a dispensary. Shop is available, but it is "rather weak", we go in Pruzhany.
Disappointing only if someone from the side says, they say, give birth to children, to build a house. Yes, of course, first you need to build a house, and then give birth to children, but if it happened, why insult us? Really hurt me and that's what: just tell someone that something is missing, so immediately answered, and what were you thinking when gave birth to so many children? Wrong to say so. After all, we do not complain, we just state that hard. We understand that you need to rely primarily on themselves.
- If all of a sudden someone suggested to me to beat my life would promise all sorts of heavenly blessings in return for a large family, I would have refused without hesitation. I do not regret anything. Sometimes it's hard, I want a moment to be alone, or head ache, but it passes quickly, as the look on children. And I can not get sick.
Most importantly, I think now, that there was a close-knit family. I do not buy for any money. That is the case, comes up to me son, he said: "Mom!" - and is silent. I ask: "What, my son?" He answered: "I love you!" And the more I do not need anything.
