In this episode, Larry Hagner and Dr. Adolph Brown III discusses their love for the “Back to the Future” movies and the iconic characters they are named after. They also talk about the various jokes and references people make about their names, such as references to famous boxers. The conversation then shifts to Doc Brown’s large family, consisting of eight children. Doc Brown shares that having a larger family has its benefits, with the children taking care of each other and the household being surprisingly orderly.
Benefits of a Large Family: Love and Support
Large families have their benefits. While some may view having a large family as chaotic and overwhelming, Brown highlights the love and support that exists within his family unit. One of the benefits of having a large family is the unlimited love that each family member has for each other. Brown emphasizes that despite having eight children, he and his wife have an abundance of love for each of them. Additionally, the children themselves have unlimited love for each other. This creates a strong bond and support system within the family, where everyone takes care of and looks out for one another.
Order and Organization in Large Families
Another benefit is the sense of order and organization that can be found in large families. Contrary to what some may expect, Brown mentions that his home is not chaotic, but rather orderly. The children play together in groups and move from room to room together. They even take responsibility for checking on any accidents or mishaps that occur in the house, reassuring their parents that everything is fine. This sense of collective responsibility and teamwork contributes to a harmonious household.
Understanding the Unique Dynamics of Large Families
It is important to note that the benefits of having a large family may not be immediately apparent to those who come from smaller families or have not experienced it themselves.
