I happened to have a mother with never-ending energy and a father who was naturally fairly laid back.
That meant that my home life was pleasant and my childhood happy.
Other families commonly have seven, eight, or nine children. While there are some very fun things about growing up with so many siblings, the sheer size of the family means that daughters of Christian Patriarchy have little privacy and many chores.
When I was fifteen my parents went out of town for a week, leaving me in charge of the younger siblings.
Later when I was in high school, my mother had a hard pregnancy and was completely incapacitated for a month.
I learned that homeschooling is the only godly way to raise children, because to send them to public school is to turn a child over to the government and the secular humanists.
I was taught that children must be trained up in the way they should go every minute of every day.
