When we first met this family, we encountered five boys alone at home, all under the age of ten. The oldest, Raúl, was taking care of his younger siblings, the youngest of who at the time was a toddler. With no father figure in the picture, the mother, Roselia, was doing her best to provide for her family and was out working during the day. Because of this, Raúl was needed at home to take care of his siblings. None of the children were attending school.
