Way too many kids. The parents can't spend any quality time with all of them. Probably none of them will go to college due to their limited budget. I saw one of the kids on TV selling used cars for a living. The kids are raising each other. Do the kids benefit from this army of people, no.

John and Kate + 8 were getting $75,000 per episode in addition to an entire crew of help. What are the Duggers getting? That would have been useful information.

The McGhee's and Octomom discovered not everyone gets a reality TV show.

The McGhees though do get a lot of help- house,van, supplies,..

Did they go to Whitehall to see Glenny Rodriguez too. She has a baby every two years- supposedly none are by her boyfriend!

Glenny Rodriguez, flanked by 2-month-old daughter Jineily and boyfriend Vicente, feed more than 20 people on Thanksgiving. That includes her other children, from left, Vincent, 3, Carlos, 5, Alex, 7, Jimae, 9, and German, 11.

Did anyone introduce the Duggars to Glenny? Probably not... apparently they are supposed to be omniscient and know everyone. Don't forget, just because we see them every week, they don't know us until we are introduced. They seem to make a point of visiting with new people they are introduced to.
The Duggars appear to be wonderful people and have done a great job raising their children. It's obvious the parents raise the children. The older children are taught responsibility in many areas, and one of those areas is childcare... you know... good old babysitting. They were already financially independent before they were approached to do any TV shows. Yes, the media initiated the contact that led to the documentaries... that led to the show. And a hearty THANK YOU to TLC/Discovery for airing this family... showing America and the world that there are decent people out here that live out their convictions with a passion. I am proud to be among the conservative Christians this family represents. They bring honor to the name of Christ.
Dear Duggars - I hope to meet you sometime soon. I wish I'd been in Columbus visiting my family when you were there. I grew up in the Columbus area and now live in the Chicago area. You and your family are in my prayers, keep up the good work of spreading the gospel through a life well-lived.

SamanthaGirl It isn't the girls jobs to be looking after the little kids all the time. The younger girls wont have this responsibility. It is fine to watch them a few minutes while the parents run to the store but not gone for three days.I think TLC down plays the amount of work these girls do.
