I'm probably a lot less likely to take the Duggars at face value. I knew families like theirs and the public facade was exactly the same as what the Duggars are presenting to the world . . . and there was a whole lot of "other side" stuff.

Maybe they are the exceptions. Who knows.

Everyone has an "other side" that doesn't mean they aren't still truly happy. maybe they have arguments, they just dont' advertise those on TV. Theys till have some aspects of life that are private and maybe family disagreements is one of them.

If they are happy and paying their own way... more power to them.

I dont know , Michelle seems to put on . Like really bad fake acting. Maybe it is because i have never ever seen them mad. and you just cant go through life without getting mad at something , if you do then "In my experiance" you are popping nerve pills like candy. Maybe it is just the episode i have seen that are all happy about everything.

I have a large family and there is no way those kids are so happy and good all the time. NO WAY. i know there is heavy editing but come on. Maybe i just have issues.

And nancy , i thought about it and do agree on the pics now , but the first reaction this am was not a good one.

maybe i just need to get off the internet when i am feeling contrary.

This...though I will admit, I have never actually watched the show. I feel it is very exploitative of the children.

And yes, I dont think its healthy or fair to have that many children. The children do not get to be children and parented, the get to be almost parts of mini corporations. I guess maybe I just know too many children from big families how have major issues with it. Is there a "right" number, of course not...but I will say, my opinion is they have too many.

I know lots of only children who have issues with being an only child and I know people with one sibling to has issues with that. EVERYONE has issues with something in life.

The children seem to be growing up to be functional adult members of society so ... could be worse. if they were strung out welfare junkies abusing their kids I would agree

as for exploiting their kids... that could be said about any child on TV or in photographs etc etc.
