Hopefully, Dasani will rise above what has been handed to her (poverty, ex drug addicted parents,etc). An 11 year old with so many adult burdens. God Bless her!


I did too. I hope I hope she, and her siblings, are able to rise above their circumstances.

Pretty much the parents seem to be doing nothing but collecting the checks.  Who is looking our for the best interest of the children?


I don't know if this is apt but there was a article published not too long ago that stated that poverty has a orifound effect on decision making skills, which in effect keeps them poor.

It's interesting because from reading  the article you can tell her mom has a lot of love for her. But she picks up some truley truley bad habits from her at the same time. 



Her mother has some demons that she needs to get rid of if you ask me.

Actually I read about one and a half chapter of Dasani's story and come to find out that she has two step siblings.  The father in this article is actually her step father and he has brought about two or three children into the marriage.  Also her mother (Dasani's mother) also had a crappy childhood with her mother (Dasani's grandmother ) smoking crack for most of Dasani's mother childhood.  She eventually got herself clean but unfortunately passed away from leukemia.

What is happening in this photo?

read the article, it explains it better. Basically This bully picks on her in school. She used to fight the bully but got suspended so the counselor taught her to do dep breathing when she get's mad in order to avoid getting "too hyped" when being bullied. 

She does this but the nully decided to fight her anyway. And the bully's friend jumps in also.

Pretendng not to know you're own family is heartless. You don't have to help them, feed them, shelter them, or buy them presents. But I judge him for not acknowleding his five year old nephew's existance when he sees him. Likewise for the other children.

When he drives past Dasani and her siblings, he pretends not to know them.

Ermm wow


Honestly, you can't blame the uncle.; he knows Dasani's mother and father better than the reporter. It is very easy to show love for your kid when the cameras are rolling and you might touch someone's heart who could get you out of misery. Plus, Dasani's mother has 7 kids - SEVEN. The uncle must have been much smarter and fathered less children.
So what they expect the uncle to do? He could wave at the kids when he drives by, but maybe he has done that and then eventually one day the kids ran to the car to talk to her while stopped at a red light, or her parents asked him money, you never know.

He is not supposed to help, the parents should have protected themselves against unwanted pregnancies to avoid putting so many kids through that.
