I watched this show about a family with eight children. Six of these children were autistic. The two that were not autistic were relied heavily upon to help with the others. I personally don't feel this is fair. I think after two autistic children or special needs children I would stop. Personally I think this is all my family could handle. These people were not able to work, their house was destroyed, and none of them seemed to ever get sleep.
A second show I have seen recently had four children with Cystic Fibrosis and one without. Not sure where the one without fell but I do remember this child was relied on a lot as well.
What are your thoughts?

wow...I don't know, I personally wouldn't be able to handle that many autistic children and would have stopped after 2 or 3. That is a lot of responsibility for those parents and who is going to take care of the children when the parents are gone? My oldest dd went through a lot of behavioral/social develoment therapy before they finally diagnosed her with low muscle tone/developmental delays/adhd but for a while they thought she had autism and I was so scared for her. I couldn't imagine having 6 with autism.
