In Britain today one in four children grows up in poverty. Rapper turned documentary maker Professor Green (aka Stephen Manderson) has done well, but he grew up in a home where there was a lot of stress over money.

Here, Professor Green follows the story of 14-year-old Tyler, who has been living in cramped emergency accommodation for 18 months.

Don't have a relationship with men who aren't suitable and especially have lots of children out of we'd loxj. Get the best grades in school one can get. Simple. This woman's life choices have led directly to her downfall. And it's not up to the taxpayer and the government to pick her back up. She has to fix her problems her self. For starters she definitely isn't going hungry I bet she smokes like a trooper and any money she does get blows it on shit cheap food, cigarettes and expensive clothes for her father less children.

I Have to say it. black men NEED to be more serious about their relationships. Not all black men are unserious, but a good percentage are.

Brandon Brawley says:

So the mothers severely overweight, simple biology states that in order to get bigger you must consume more calories than you burn, aka she's over eating even though she claims she only has £80 for food for two weeks. Secondly, the boys are 14 and 15, their circumstances do seem desperate so why not get a job? That young kid was talking about possibly becoming a dealer because "he wants to give his mum that £100 to go food shopping", why not just go out and grind like an ambitious 14 year old would, by getting a part time job. Maybe he can't get an actual contracted job until he's 16 but he can still go out and hustle, clean cars, dog walking, anything. The mum has depression and chronic back pain so is unable to work? Yeh ok maybe she wouldn't do great at a building sight putting scaffolding up, but as a receptionist or at a call centre? I am privileged that i grew up in circumstances different to this and I recognise that, and obviously can't relate to these people, but I feel like sitting there just complaining about how desperate your circumstances are doesn't help you, your family, or the economy.

David William says:

I've never felt poor since my dad is a CEO of a major company in my city, however, I think that wealth is self-made and if these moms especially would close not to open their legs, and get stable income before they get kids this wouldn't be an issue.
