I watched this last night. The first family featured with 16 children, one of those children unmarried and also having had a child I admire their work ethic BUT I would not pay child benefit for any more than 2 children.

The second family featured 11 kids, Father on benefits for 7 years, owns own home and receives a few quid under £40,000 net per annum in benefits and he still wants more offspring, I'd give him the snip! in addition to not paying the child benefit for child 3 upwards.
