would you feel obligated to care and raise your nieces and nephews if their parents died?

I wouldnt mind doing a favor like that for my family. Although I would make sure nobody else in the family was able to help first. I have my hands full with 3 at home under age 6 and another due any day now. I would do it though, just not right off the bat be the first to offer.

I guess so. Well, We're just two siblings so there will be no one left more responsible than I. And as a family, I think it is every member's responsibility to take good care of each other in whatever circumstances there is. I believe in that. And I hope to keep that as well. Happy myLotting my friend.

Yes I would feel that way. But, my nieces and nephews are all grown so I do not think I would have to raise them now. But, I would give them advice and a place to live if they ever needed help or a roof over their head. They would know they could depend on me.

Of course I would...but we would have to be talking about great nieces and great nephews since our nieces and nephews are grown with families of their own now. If any child in the family needed a home my husband and I would take him/her in. That's what families do in my opinion.

No because I am the oldest of the children in the family. I still have 2 more brothers and one sister to take care of. I am now in the fourth year of my college and I think that I will not be able to graduate on the right time because of financial reasons. When I graduate and get a job my parents will be wanting me to take care of the other children and help with the money problems. Our family is also not close to my cousins and my extended family so I do not think that they will ask for our help. If I was rich and we are a close family, I will help them. We also do not even have to be close. I just have to be rich to help.
