Chema and Rosa who have the most school-age children in Spain, and possibly Europe, were chosen by the European Large Families Confederation (ELFAC) as Europe's Large Family of the Year. Rosa recently authored a book recounting her experiences: Rosa, What's your secret? Raising a large family with love.
In this Lecture they discuss the challenges facing a large family:
The spouses: keeping romance alive / evenings out / solving arguments / putting spouse first Children: love and individual attention / teaching responsibility / patience / faith in the family / customs and traditions The material things: how to balance the books / organise the day / keep order in the home.
