    they are crazy! is it even safe to have kids back to back like that?

    not to sound ignorant or anything but after having so many kids don't you get a break from the state? i thought i heard that somewhere. i dunno.

          just the physical part of being pregnant that much seems so HARD!

            Having more than 3 children is considered too many by America's modern standards and 18 is crazy. As seen in some of the post above - people consider is so odd. Not to many people will support them - but we are glad its not us!
            Thank goodness!
            I have 18 preschoolers and everyone in my classroom has a job every day and it works. I think thats great that she implements jobs or else she would be on 911 nanny! lol Those kids would be out of control. I honestly think that homeschooling may not be the best for them. I hope that when they grow up they aren't afraid of going out in the world and wont end up back in their same home town clinging onto their siblings and having a crazy amount of kids themselves!
            Do they have a few nannys? Geez Im contemplating a Nanny for kid/kids I dont have (shhhh dont tell FI) I would have to have at least 2 with 18 kids.

            And as far as college I dont plan on paying for my kids college - Am I wrong??

              I'm sorry, but all I can think of is Monty Python...

                No, there is no right or wrong. I have told my children I will match what they save for university. My children have to put 60% of any money that they receive away to save, this includes baby sitting money, money for doing chores over and above what is expected of them (I don't believe in allowance), and Christmas money. I let them keep 100% of their birthday money:) When they get a part time job this system will still apply. I also expect my children to work hard to maintain their marks and hopefully scholarships will come into play for them. I will also pay for all of their books, I will do what I can to help them but I think they will work harder if they have a stake in the investment of their education, I have heard too many stories of 1st year students partying away their university days, that will not be my child or they are on their own.

                Oh and as the mother of 5, I applaud this woman, she is a far better mother then many I know who only have 1 or 2 kids. I however still thinks she's nut's, who wants to be pregnant 18 flipp'n times! Four times was more then enough for me, my poor body never fully recovered (that's my story it's the children's fault I am all soft and jiggly, not he lack of exercise or the warm loaves of sour dough bread I like to indulge in) from the agonizing joy of pregnancy:)

                she has had to find a dr that is willing to deliver her anymore because she has had a few c-sections and while they do seem really well adjusted I think enough is enough right, I mean wow that is crazy. I am hating just having one and I really don't know if I will want to do this again

                  That is absolutely insane. I'm sorry. But, you can't give all of the attention they need with that many. No matter what.

                    Holy cow....WTF? I have wondered the same thing, her poor body! How can her uterus keep up & her bladder control has got to compromised for goodness sake! But, I watch this crazy show too, it's like a trainwreck....you just can't look away, I can't help it. Those wacky Duggars!! LOL
