What do you think of people with 10+ kids?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

I think everyone has their own way of doing things. How can you give your attention to 10+kids?

 I have seen that 19 kids and counting show. It always looks like the older kids are helping out the younger kids. I understand that is a lot of kids and surely the mom would need some help.

Is that fair to the older kids though? Is it fair to the younger kids to depend on older siblings much of the time?

I am not bashing anyone. I am really trying to understand. If you have a lot of kids, please enlighten me

They probably don't get much sleep. I like sleep.

I think children naturally like to help out so I don't think its screwing anyone over. it, imo, probably prevents sibling rivalry and jealousy.

I think it must be pretty awesome about having a large family... If you manage it well. I could never.

I don't have an issue with it - in fact I think 19 kids and counting is a model of how all families should be regardless of size.  So the older kids help out - good!  When they move out and have their own families they are more than prepared.  They all seem so well behaved and balanced.  I WISH I was as good a parent as Jim and Michelle are, though I think Michelle beats Jim out the water, lol.

I think, 1) they MUST be exhausted, and 2) HOW do you afford that?
