I don't think any of us can pretend like we know this family. It's a tv show - we only see what the network wants us to see, they portray these people how they want us to see them - what will attract viewers. However, I actually was thinking the other day that I would love to hang out with John and Kate, they seem like my kind of people. I really like Kate - she says it like it is, no fluff. That's my kind of person!

I think I would curl up in a corner and cry if I had 8 kids all within the same age range. I also was a teacher and did ABA therapy with children for the past 6 years. The children I worked with are Autistic and highly behavioral so I thought dealing with Aiden would be a breeze. While my experience did help, there's a big difference between an 8 hour day and a 24/7 commitment.
People snap, people get mad, people fight, people aren't calm and collected all the time. Raising a child is the hardest thing I've ever done in my entire life. If they filmed my life and put it on tv, I can only imagine how I'd come off.... I know it wouldn't be pretty. Of course they are going to focus on showing the "tougher" side of raising the kids and show all the "bad" moments.
