Did you ever watch the show? It's rather amazing that they have such control over that size family. The kids are well behaved and all chip in to do their share. I certainly couldn't do it that's for sure!

I saw the on the Today Show a couple of weeks ago, and I have to say that their philosophy on child rearing is one I totally agree with. These are very grounded people. It's very impressive.

My mom has talked with her in the past, and our convictions our the same.
My family is large for today's standards.... there are 7 of us kids. But with the exception of a few things we are a lot like the Duggars. =)

This size family was not too unusual years ago. My mother was one of 16 children. But my grandfather lost his first wife (my mother's mother) after 7 children and then remarried and had 9 more. This was the early part to middle part of the 1900s. Of all these children several had 13 each. I have one first cousin who had 15 including 2 sets of twins. I am one of 102 grandchildren. We are a big Catholic family. I am a slacker. I only had 2.

My father was the 8th of 9 children in his family and he was born in 1931. My oldest Aunt, who was already 18 when my dad was born, had 16 children and I have another aunt who had 13. I'm an only child though and my dad waited until he was 41 to even think about having a family. Guess all those babies he grew up around were enough for a while. :roflhard:

I've seen the show a couple of times. I think it is nice to see a family [of any size] that has respect for each other and all pitch in to do their part. I can't imagine having that many siblings, I only have one brother and sister. My mom was one of 7. She is the one who had the most children - the rest who could have children, only had 2. It must be a comfort to know though that you will never be alone, there will always be someone there when you are in need. But wow, I don't think I could do that!
