  • Yes, I do watch it. It isn't up to anyone else how many kids are too many. Some, like me, are fine with 1. Others, like big families (my friend has 8 kids). Some like 2 or 3. Who cares if they have 25 kids, they take care of them, the kids are respectful and they don't use ANY assistance, are not in debt and pay everything in cash.

  • I have watched the show and I personally think 19 kids is wayyyy too many!!! But at the same time I see how functional their family is and how much love they have for each other. They have no debt and everyone seems well taken care of. Dentist and Dr regularly. It seems unreal but true. So idk maybe for the average family it's entirely too many but it doesn't seem so for them!

  • I don't understand how any parent can pay individual attention to 19 kids, but they seem to be able to provide for them pretty well. Not like they are mooching off the government or anything.

  • I don't watch it. I dont have much interest in watching that type of reality television.

  • Even if they did use assistance, they would still make GREAT parents! I love the show & I wish I could be as calm as she is w/ those kids!!!! I would have already jumped off a bridge w/ 25 lol Heck, even 5 LOL!!! They are an AWESOME family!

  • Wow that is an army. If you have the time, patience, money, and ability to have that many than god bless you. I am one and done. I would love to have another but financially I would not be able to provide for both in the way I want to.

  • I have seen the show a few times. I would never have 19 kids but I think its fine they do. The kids are all cared for, loved and respectful. They are not on any assistance so if it makes them happy then go for it. I did know someone that had 12 kids but some where stepkids. It was crazy but fun.

  • yes i watch this sometimes
    I dont agree with everything they do but its their life
    I do believe that is to many kids and their should be a law
    and are you kidding me 19 kids really...

    Im not saying i agree or dont agree and im not bashing their family or large familys i just have a very different outlook and opinion
