The Duggar family

What do you think about the Duggar family?

Having 19 kids, is that too much?

Do you think you think if you could have that many kids, would you?

Don't you wish that you could get pregnant that easy?

Have you wondered how do they get the time to get pregnant with all those kids?

I think its way to much! They can't mentally physically and emotionally take care of all those kids!

I think its way too many. I know I couldn't do it and wouldn't do it. I believe that the older kids take care of the younger kids and mom and dad don't do everything for every little kid.

i agree. too many. sad part is they're in the state i live in not too far away...it's just...honestly i know they don't believe in bc but damn, pull out or something! at least TRY not to have that many kids. oh man i do wish i could get pregnant so easy...must be nice. and the thing is, they don't take care of all of them, the kids all take care of each other! i mean seriously! they get a tv show instead of a show from cps?! i mean they take away people's pets when they have that many...i'm not trying to say that children are equal to pets...i'm saying that when you cannot give each child an equal and satisfactory amount of undivided attention, that should be means of an intervention or something!

I agree, they have the older kids buddy up with the younger kids.  And yes I do wish I could get pregnant that easy.

 They are my idols.

Nope. They should have more if they want to.

Yes, but unfortunately I can't.

It's not the getting pregnant I have issues with. It's the carrying to term.

I think they find time just fine. They usually concieve the next one right about the time that a baby finally sleeps through the night.

I think if that is what works for them go for it. Not my cup of tea. I do not like that the oldest take care of the youngest, but to each their own.

I want a big family, but not that big! They have way to many children to take of and I agree with the others, they have the older siblings take care of the younger ones. I do hope they are more careful in the future because I believe that everything that happened with her going into preterm labor with their youngest child has everything to do with her body being to tired. I think from here on out she will experience the same type of thing. It's just to much for body to handle. I think it would be selfish for them to have more. Not only are they putting the children they already have at risk but they are putting the new mother and the new baby/babies. Their youngest could have health problems from being born so early. And what would all of those children do without their mother?
