Why do so many people hate the Duggars????

I will admit I am confused by the hatred. This is a family who pays for their own life, and they do not rely on any assistance from the government. They raise their kids to be respectful and to have good values. I personally think there is a certain element of jealousy there. Yes they have the older kids help with the younger, but that is pretty standard in almost every family.

Can someone clue me in on what the hatred is about?

The thing I see most often is that "the older kids raise the younger ones"

I don't agree with a lot of their choices, religion, courting, etc and no way would I ever have half that many children, but I do like watching the show. They seem to be happy and it works for them.

I agree. Anyone who is not afraid to share their faith in God, in a time where it's not "politically correct", is awesome. They don't rely on government assistance, they raise their kids with values, morals, and strong faith in God, and are an inspiration. I love them, and the Robertsons, from "Duck Dynasty." We need more shows like both of them.

 I think it may be partly jealously, but I think a lot of parenting is done by the older kids instead of the parents. At least that is how it looks on tv.

I personally wouldnt say I hate them, but I feel like they are sheltering their children a little too much, and at least one of them is going to go buck wild and it will be shocking to the family.

The way they deal with dating and their children is a little weird to me, but hey not my life, not my children.

Maybe because they think they had that many kids just to get a show? No idea.

I love the show. Good values, great manners from the children, and they care as a family who marries into the family. I think they have a great system and a great love for family and GOD.
