In Britain today one in four children grows up in poverty. Rapper turned documentary maker Professor Green (aka Stephen Manderson) has done well, but he grew up in a home where there was a lot of stress over money.

Here, Professor Green follows the story of 14-year-old Tyler, who has been living in cramped emergency accommodation for 18 months.

Yeah…. if she cared enough she would do whatever it takes for her children. She had freshly dyed hair too which is funny.

World Of Mellie says:

Where’s the rest of the money? If she’s on benefits she gets money for the children too, child tax credits and child benefits. £80 every two weeks is job seekers allowance for her. They’re not telling the whole story.

PaiN ExoTiC says:

The number one cause of poverty is children. Common Sense Economics: You have an income. Adding people to this income who don't add to an income decreases your average GDP. If you are making $20k/year (convert this to your currency), having kids will decrease how much is spent on you. If you have 2 kids, divide $20k by 3. Your standard of living is now that only a third of what it would've been if you hadn't had kids. Not only that, your income may be even lower because you may now not even be able to work to the same extent since you now have to worry about taking care of these kids. In there words, you will either have to hire sitters or forego income by staying home with your kids (when they aren't at school or old enough to go yet). There are also so many others factors that go into it as well.

Mirco Zettel says:

Lazy people demamd government handouts.
