Octuplets, Should she get a job?

I almost fell off my chair when octuplets father said on Opray today, "he would like to see her get a job." Are you kidding me? Who is going to pay for childcare and why do they need childcare? She wanted these children for love, fufillment and companionship. Sorry, in my opinion, she needs to be with those kids until they go to kindergarten, then she should get a part time job. Yes I work, part-time, but I made sure I could prepare financially and physically to give my children the love and care they deserve. Sorry her job is to care for those children and pray she can find some volunteers to help her. God Bless Her in her time of need!

  • If she can find a way to add to her income to take care of those kids she needs to do it. She is gonna need every penny she can get to take of her litter.

  • I think that she should too. This is most likely a different situation than you were in. She didn't take care of the 6 she already had, her parents did.
