I don't know about anyone else, but I grew up in a family of nine. We live in a middle class neighborhood with mostly stay at home moms. Whenever any one of us acted up, no matter where in the neighborhood our parents heard about it. Usually with five minutes. I know my parents gave the other moms permission to swat us if needed and we didn't yell about it because we usually deserved it. My parents taught us respect and Christian values. We didn't have much other than family, but that was sufficient for us.
