Sure, they're having their NINETEENTH kid, but at least the state isn't paying for it!
Momlogic's Julie: I was beyond angry when I found out that Octomom had FOURTEEN KIDS she couldn't pay for. Outrageous! How could a woman ON WELFARE be so irresponsible? I was having a hard enough time paying for my own two children ... As a California taxpayer, I hated the idea of having to foot the bill for hers, too.
But when I heard that the Duggars are having their nineteenth child, I felt none of those same emotions. The Duggars work. They're debt-free. They built their own home and have no mortgage payment. I wish I could say the same.
Octomom was photographed getting her nails done shortly after giving birth to her octuplets. She seems completely "me, me, me." But the Duggars are all about family -- in their house, it's more like "we, we, we."
I personally wouldn't want to have nineteen children, but it's a free country, and I can't fault Michelle Duggar for it. As long as my tax dollars don't have to pay for her kids, I cannot judge.
Watching the show "18 and Counting" is inspirational. I can't believe how Michelle manages it all. Watching the Octomom reality documentary, however, was more like watching a train wreck. She has no idea what she's doing, and the kids are the ones who suffer for it.
The Duggars have a strong family support system. No, I don't believe you need a man to raise a kid, but I do believe you need a strong support system in place. Octomom doesn't seem to have one, and it's sad.
The Duggars have more and more kids because they genuinely love their children. Octomom has publicly stated that she "screwed herself" and her kids' lives by having eight more babies. Um, ya think?
For those reasons, I believe the Duggars are way better than Octomom. Who's with me?
