  • 18 kids is too many

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/28309966/
    The same family from that TV show.

    I find it hard to believe that all of those kids are getting the same amount of needed attention from their parents. I don't think this is right. Thoughts?

    I'm with you on this, I may be ignorant of the situation since I'm not in it, but I find it hard to believe that all of the kids are really getting what they need (there's just not enough time in the day) from their parents and they are more interested in being an oddity.

      I honestly do think all countries need to have a population control type law. Having 18 kids back in the 1600s or something like that might of been alright due to the fact that not many of them might have survived due to disease and whatever else but in a time like this having 18 kids is ridiculous especially when there are homeless kids in every city still,

        At some point it almost seems like a marketing ploy....Every year have anew kid...more media Hype... Sell books and looks like he is creating his own Orchestra...

        One hand I wanna say too much and on the other hand I don't want to impose my beliefs on another person if there is no harm done.

        Now if proof was provided that there was neglect or anything along those lines then yea tie them tubes or Vasectomy...But if he can provide for them all without a burden on the tax system then I can't say foul.

        I would really hate to see the In Law situation in about 12 years...LOL!

          I can not fathom having this many children, however, if they are being provided for, I agree with Shady, it's not my place to tell them how many kids they are allowed to have. Hell their 18 kids are a lot more behaved than my two kids are.

          What does this family having 18 kids have to do with homeless kids? They claim to be a very religious family. I'm sure their church has the same stance on birth control that the Catholic church does and that God will provide for them. It's not that they necessarily WANTED 18 kids, they just didn't take any steps to prevent having that many children.

          How many parents of one or two children don't give their children the attention they need?

              I personally find it a bit obnoxious to have that many kids. I can't even fathom having more than 3! The reason I don't want more than 3, maybe 4 at the most is because I want to give my children as much quality time as possible.

              I saw a great motivational poster on another website that showed the family and said, "Vag**a. It's not a clown car." I'll post it if you guys give me the go ahead.

                I seriously doubt the medical definition for part of the female reproductive system (hence-forth referred to as "Vagina") will not run afoul of the language rules at TG.

                  That was my line of thinking, but I didn't want to take the chance of offending anyone. But, oh well. Here goes! :D

                            She has the kids raising the kids. When you get to that point it is really wrong IMO. You can not burden a young child with having to raise their brother/sister just because mom and dad wont use some control. Each family is different and I do not support Govt to limit kids or anything (Unless you are on Govt assistance) but to me what they are doing is flat out wrong to all their kids.

                              But why wouldnt anyone think govts should let a single family host 20+ kids? The population rises anyways and all governents should be prepared for droughts and/or for a couple years of bad farming so then food prices inflate and some people cant meet prices to eat everyday especially people in cities. Plus people are all about the environment now a days and double the population just means more emissions are going to be put out, along with more resources being needed (trees for paper, available drinking water, etc.etc.) and with hurting economys jobs are a lot harder to find for some people. Nature has a way with dealing with things, its generally just not very pretty.

                              Just quick google search theirs a overpopulation.org, if you go to why population matters theirs a list of facts in the 2nd and 4th paragraphs.

                              Plus everybody knows that that family is probably like this one; [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Q4is6HVnYw[/media]
