Re: does anyone know this Yiddish expression? #yiddish

Tater means father. A father can take care of his ten children, but 10 children can not take care of one father.
I hope that helps.

I recently had a letter translated into English. The following expression was used by  my grandmother, the writer: "a Tateh can care for ten children but ten children can not care for one Tateh”.
I have an idea what it means, but i am wondering if anyone in this group has heard the expression and can tell me if there is an English equivalent. Thanks much.
