    The Duggars and reality tv make raising large families seem like a fairy tale rather. Raising kids is certainly not a fairy tale and it sure wasn’t during the Depression. There was no birth control and not many opportunities for women.Many a women died during childbirth and infant mortality was high. Often, parents didn’t see the kids grown. Times are so different now. It takes plenty of resources to raise large families.
