paper round at 11 years old? He is a bit young. thought you had to be 13?

poopscoop Thu 13-Aug-09 21:11:50

liking both families very much so far.

LittleMissBliss Thu 13-Aug-09 21:13:17

I like both families too, The poor families kids speak very highly of their mum, which is lovely to hear.

how did the rich one make his money? I missed that bit.

CloudDragon Thu 13-Aug-09 21:14:13

poop - I had a newspaper round from 10, I loved it. Good money.

i had paper round at 12 which was naughty because i had to be 13, but that was 30 years ago. maybe different now.

good so far

Find it a bit depressing tbh. I do like the fact that the rich chap wasn't born with a silver spoon in his mouth, he worked hard to achieve his fortune. I am loving the little boy, he is going to do great things in his life.

agree re the children. Anyone else think they selected the families specifically to ensure there was at least one very sweet, telegenic child in each family?

kathyis6incheshigh Thu 13-Aug-09 21:23:19

yes, it's a feelgood programme smile
But nonetheless interesting & moving.

beanieb Thu 13-Aug-09 21:31:04

it's lovely. Though I don't know if it's true Poverty.

I have shed a tear though.

Hopefully it will open the eyes of people who don't understand the 'catch 22' situation people like this find themselves in - where they're always trying to just keep their head above water without a hope of being able to get a 'lucky break' to start a new life?

Agree it's quite moving.

poopscoop Thu 13-Aug-09 21:34:32

i have welled up a bit i must admit

nancy75 Thu 13-Aug-09 21:35:53

i like that the poor family seem to be doing more with the money than last week, if it helps them move to a better area that would be brilliant

glasjam Thu 13-Aug-09 21:36:28

Yes this is lovely. It's the first one I've watched. BUT I do feel uneasy - I keep waiting for it to go tits up. So far the recipients of the money seem genuinely delighted and are putting it to use in paying off debts and changing their life for the better. But what if they want to spend it on something a bit frivolous - will the rich ones sit in judgement. Or will they end up giving them a job on one of their caravan sites - I DO hope it works out well.

chablis Thu 13-Aug-09 21:44:37

Wow - the kids are just SO nice & wise and sensible!

FluffySaysTheDailyMailsCrap Thu 13-Aug-09 21:47:11

I missed the first 3/4, I'm watching the last bit and will catch it up on +1 {sigh}

glasjam Thu 13-Aug-09 21:47:14

Here we go - I really hope he can help them out with their new life - it's looking promising...

poopscoop Thu 13-Aug-09 21:47:17

glasjam - reckon you are right about them getting a job on one of their sites.

LittleMissBliss Thu 13-Aug-09 21:48:38

I think this will be the best one yet! truly life changing for the poor family.

tiredsville Thu 13-Aug-09 21:50:48

Gosh the kids do it for me, every week same old thing, me crying over lovely children.
