Back in the old days a lot of kids wasn't a problem.....

Posted by   + Show Post

So, why is it now? My grandma had twenty two kids (four set of twins). Why is it so crazy if a couple wants to have a lot of children?

It's not a problem as long as you (general you) can afford them without pa. I have 2 and I don't want anymore.

Please dont put words in my mouth. I didn't say all families. I have no problem with people having as many kids as they want. For that matter I don't even have a problem with PA. My problem is that there are a large amount of people who abuse PA and use it as a career path rather than TEMPORARY ASSISTANCE and continue to have kids knowing they can't afford more...and aren't supporting the ones they already have. Kudos to your sister... Seriously.

Quoting MrsJHoward:

Uh my sister has five kids and her and her husband are not on any PA so that is not always true. I know more moms/dads with one or two kids on PA then the bigger families.



Quoting ramonafrog:

The only problem I have with big families is that it seems like the biggest families are the ones who are on every form of PA. If you can't afford YOUR big family don't make it the rest of america's responsibility to foot the bill.


I love the duggars... They're the perfect example of what a big family should look like.

Miss-B, she is trying to start trouble. Don't let her turn your post into something ugly.

Well said!

Quoting writethisdown:

I would love a big family but its not in the cards for me.



I think people now are just not able to handle being satisfied with having what they need. The consumerism in our country is sick and people are no longer able to just be happy. So many people are miserable because theyre 'poor'. I think previous generations based their happiness on a hard days work and providing the *needs* of their family and their 'fun times' were time spent with their family.

Lol. I'm just saying they set an awesome example for financial independence and family togetherness. Something a lot of big and small families have forgotten about

Quoting TrouserMouse:

My big family will never look like the Duggars, thank goodness...lol.

People had more farms and things like that. Times have just changed. But if someone wants that many kids, who cares?

I know what you meant, but I was picturing me with the big 80's bangs...and then the clothes. No, no, no.
