I think they are are a great God loving family. Their Children are good kids, have good morals, and are individuals to look up to. The Duggars' can feed their own family without state assistance...They are seemingly great people all around. They love their family, and they have the means to support them. I love watching this family on TV, they're not a trash telivision show like everything else.

I love seeing a family that actually works together--fairly peacefully!--on TV.  Most families on reality shows are all about the drama.  It's also nice to see that others try for intervention-free births with midwives, often at home, and trust their bodies to tell them when it's time to call in an OB, like with Josie.  And to see homeschooling, cloth diapering, and helpful household tips portrayed in a positive manner are nice additions :)

Kid total wise, Mrs. Duggar reminded viewers, as she had to tell herself when they had the first 5 or 6 running, toddling, crawling, crying around, "They won't all be young at once."  With our almost 2-year spacing between dd2 and ds, it would take forever or high order multiples for us to reach 19 kids.  Breastfeeding is keeping my progesterone and estrogen levels low even at 8 months now, so it's hindering ovulation.  Doesn't work that way for her--she gets pregnant before AF even returns sometimes.  We're "dreaming" of maybe 2-3 more, making a total of 5-6 including our stillborn angel.  AND, if God decides ds is our final baby, giving us with 2 living children, we've gladly accepted that, too!

I think they're probably having kids just for the fame of it, and if so then have at it. I don't pay their bills, but I really don't care for/about them.

i think they're cute. i haven't been watching them on tv like i used to but overall im all for having what God wants for you and clearly God wants to give them ALOT of blessings/children bc they're a godly good example type family but i just hope God doesnt give me that much!!! lol
