>Nineteen children? It sounds like a possum family to me. In this age of depleted natural resources and lack of clean water or enough fuel, having that many children is almost criminal.
How can those kids get proper attention or training with all those siblings to take up time? How can a family afford to keep that many kids in proper care, or educated?...<

They don't get proper attention from their parents; there wouldn't be time. I read that when a new one is born, they are assigned to an older child right away. Talk about the older ones NEVER having any private time at all.

I'm waiting for one to come out as GLBTQI. THAT will twist daddy duggar's knickers, and they'll probably ship the kid off to a fundie school for "counselling". Can't have THAT now, can we, kiddies? Now, wave bye-bye to whoever's leaving and don't disturb mommy and daddy; they're having their "alone time" now.

There was a family up the street from me with 13 children. 13? 19? After 5, who cares?

The kids were well-disciplined and, yes, they looked after one another. Can you imagine what the house would have been like if unruly behavior was tolerated at all?

In fact, the house was full of even MORE children because they weren't allowed to leave the yard. Everyone in the neighborhood played in their yard. Can you imagine having to canvass the neighborhood to track down 13 children for dinner?

Privacy? Don't make me laugh! They must have been tripled up in the bedrooms.

It's hard to imagine a family being more loving toward one another and toward their neighbors. The ones I am in contact with have all followed different paths and experienced a great deal of success in their own lives.

Last I heard, there were at least *three* miscarriages along the way, including one just last year.

There was big excitement about a year and a half ago when their oldest kid, 19 or 20 at the time, got married and started immediately popping out kiddies, too. Whoopee!!! The kids are fucking each other. Yippee!!! More and more pretend "christians" to spread hate and intolerance across the globe!!

The older children in families this big generally take on full parenting responsibilities for their younger siblings by the time the older kids are 10 or 12 years old. That's generally speaking a really bad thing for a 10 or 12 year old to take on. It's far too much responsibility for them. It's inappropriate and it robs them of a reasonably normal adolescence.

Of course, that screws up the younger kids, too, because they don't have a strong central parent to rely on. Their attentions are always divided between the actual parents and the acting parents.

Kids that grow up in these families also tend to have a very poor sense of self-worth since everything in their world has to be divided and shared among so many siblings and they get very little attention that's directly specially toward them.

People like them are always screaming and crying about gay couples "depriving" a child of either a mother or a father, but then THEY have so damned many kids that they're depriving their children of BOTH a mother and a father, leaving them to be raised by older siblings that have no business in that role.

I think it's a really horrible thing to do to kids.

It's like the multiplication game, in not too many generations, if they all have the same amount it be in the millions. All Duggar folk.

Well, that *IS* exactly why the people that wrote the Bible put that part in there about having as many babies as you can. That's why polygamy was touted for so long--the faster your followers multiply, the richer and more powerful you get. It's pretty simple. Men can inseminate multiple wives at a time, but a wife can only have a kid every 9 or 10 months or so.

What's really tragic and sad, though, is not even that this whole idea treats human beings like farm animals, multiplying as fast as possible for material gain, but that it's been cutting the lives of women short for millenia.

The #1 cause of death in women in the U.S. before 1900 was childbirth-related complications. Not disease or illness, certainly not old-age, but childbirth complications. Basically, women kept having babies until one of them killed her. Then dad would go find another wife and keep going. Really horrible stuff.

If you visit any old cemetery, from the 19th century back, you will see that many of the women's graves are for young women. Here layeth Goody Brown, beloved mother and wyfe, aged 27, Requieum in Pax" or something like that. You can bet she died of child birth complications.

Yep! And you'll also often a man with three or four wives buried next to him. When one died giving him children, he just went out and found another one. Then she had children until *she* died.

Another interesting tidbit about early cemeteries is that very often, especially before 1850 or so, children under a year old were buried in unmarked graves within the family plot so that the name could be used again on later children. Or the headstone would simply say "Baby" and a date. That's how, despite the high infant mortality rate, many family naming conventions were able to survive and repeat themselves--because they literally reused the same name until one of them lived passed infancy.

So many babies died that many families didn't officially name a child until it's first or even second birthday. He or she was just "the baby" until then. So infant mortality rates were likely far higher than we know.

And many women who died as the result of childbirth, but didn't die until a few days or even weeks later, weren't recorded as having died from the birth. The cause of death might be listed as "blood loss" or "fever" or something more closely related to the symptoms she was showing at the time of death--after all, if you lived through the delivery, everything must be fine, right?

Fascinating stuff.

My husband and I, not too long ago, traveled to his father's birthplace to find his grandmother's grave. It was unmarked, so we had a headstone placed there. We discovered that there were three infants buried there. So we placed all of their names on the marker.

That's a really wonderful gesture. How did you know the babies were there? Cemetery records? And how did you know their names? Did you know about them before?

The cemetery had good records. And no, we didn't know much about my husband's grandparents until we visited St. John. His dad was three when his grandmother died, and his grandfather moved to the Boston area with a new wife. Mark never met his grandparents, and his dad obviously remembered very little about his life in New Brunswick. But he did know where his mother was buried, despite never having gone back.

We've been back to New Brunswick many times and have been able to trace Mark's family back to the French Huguenots who settled in New Rochelle. They were Tories and moved to Canada after the revolution.(If you ever travel in Canada, you will find chocolates named after a heroic woman who warned the Canadians that American soldiers were coming--sort of their Paul Revere. They're all related to the family that came to New Rochelle, although we haven't found where the family trees meet.

Can you read and comprehend at ALL?

I SAID, those old graves were from about 150-200 years ago when medical help for childbirth problems was not invented yet. I didn't say it was a good thing, you moron.

You must work for Fox News, they can spin any story negatively for effect to support their hating agenda.
