This family never ceases to amaze me. I cannot imagine what it must be like to have 20 brothers and sisters. Or to go through L+D that many times. Go, Michell, go!!

Ok I watch these shows from time to time.We talk about other where show where we feel that someone kids must not be happy because you see the children crying a lot .Well in special where Anna had her baby at the words new baby from Michelle mouth two of the younger Dugger children Johanna and Jennifer both broke into tears.They kept crying every time Michelle said the word new baby.They clearly know that the words new baby means something bad to them and make them very unhappy.I think they should be happy and blessed with the children they have and force on raising them instead of being force on having more.

The truth is the Duggars are over populating the world. In addition, it is very clear that the siblings are responsible for their own child rearing, which shows that the parents are not capable of caring for all of these children. The 19 children will most likely produce offspring(s) and the cycle of depletion of resources continues. Common sense should tell us that the world has an overabundance of people, without enough resources for all of mankind. It is absolutely irresponsible and selfish to expand one’s family for the sake of expanding one’s religion and religious views. Whether or not one is capable of bearing 19 children, the choice is still there. Will you choose to have less than the 19 children you are capable of conceiving in order to protect the world that your children and grandchildren will live in? Or will you choose to bare the 19 children knowing that they will consume and deplete resources that is already lacking for so many people? Choosing to have 19 children, because you can, is greedy and selfish. With every right there is a responsibility, with every responsibility there is an obligation, and with every possession there is a duty.

Why is everyone so worried about how many kids the Duggars have. They are great people and rising there kids GOD way. People who don’t understand the bible, don’t know anything. There is a verse that say If God brings you to it He will bring you though it. God well take of them. Love you all keep doing what God wants you to do. My mom and dad did the same thing and there are 9 of us. We all turn out great. God loves you

My family and I have enjoyed watching this family grow. As a mother of 3 I admire the strength this mother shows as I know it cant always be easy. The way I see it I have done my children an injustice by showering them with material items, running them here and there and so forth. These children are being taught many lessons I would love to rewind at my own home. God bless you Duggers and faith be with you and your new wee one.

I do think michelle should consider stopping now having any more children because of her age and the health risks her and the last baby josie have had that is my opinion . Her and jim bob should start letting the kids grow up so they can live to enjoy their grandchildren .I am a christan and I believe that god would understand if they didn’t have anymore.

I love quotations because it is a joy to find thoughts one might have, beautifully expressed with much authority by someone recognized wiser than oneself.

Skill without imagination is craftsmanship and gives us many useful objects such as wickerwork picnic baskets. Imagination without skill gives us modern art.
