Well, it seemed like he gets what he wants regarding chicken nuggets but he did listen to his parents. They were good to teach their kids they could express their opinions. And I agree that living your life for your family, those you love, is best. I wish I could have a source of income like they do pay my bills and give me time with my family. Their life seemed darn near perfect to me. The only thing, IMO that would make their lives perfect is maybe eating better. But otherwise, I wish I had their lives! And Curtis, what a doll...I couldn't say no to him either! And even though he's a bit spoiled he seemed a genuinely nice kid with a good head on his shoulders. I wish them all the best!

Darlene are you CRAZY?!?...That is one of the worst family dynamics I have ever seen. The parents have no business being parents because they don't do ANYTHING to help Curtis get ready for the real world. That kid is gonna die of a heart attack by 18. He is a spoiled rotten nasty little piece of SH_T. I am sooo glad I don't live in the white trash part of America. No wonder this country is falling apart if people actually think THAT family has the "perfect" life.

Jesus! Adam from NY did you just refer to a little boy as a "piece of sh_t????" I wouldn't be able to say no to him either with those articulative abilities and exaggerated sense of age! Hahaha, I can't get enough of this video. I think it is just a precious depiciton of children and how "old" they think they are. Certainly, their diets should change but that signifies "Pieces of sh_t??" How cruel can you be? IT. IS. A. CHILD. You should be ashamed of yourself.I pity your children and very much hope you do not have any and never intend to.

Also, it takes all walks of life, buddy. Those who refer to others as "trash" are only "trash" themselves. These are just harmless people who were chosen to be in a show out of millions...maybe even your neighbor, cousin, sister, or even mother considering the nature of the show and well...your intolerable attitude on life. Good luck to ya.

Adam, what do you mean "the white trash part of America?" Please make no mistake or stereotype people based on what you know from your upbringing. I say this because you only seen one family and you classified those who live in that area as "white trash." I know there are many of us out there that could rattle off numerous things about Jersey or your home town of choice but we don't, want to know why? Because there is a line or ignorance and just plain stupidity. Sometimes we see those lines blurred or crossed by those who do not know. Just saying.

We actually bought pinetstraw from these people and it was the nastiest and dirtiest pinestraw ever. I told the X that we would never do that again. I told that man after he had continually delivered dirty pinetstraw to us to come and pick it up because we could not use the nasty stuff. We were having to spend hours picking out sticks and pinecones and it was moldy too. I don't know how they stay in business. Maybe that is why he did wifeswap. His kid curtis needs a swift kick in the butt. It is a darn shame he made all north Carolimians looks bad.

Carolyn you must be mistaken, I can assure you that you have never bought pinestraw from me I do not sell in Washington, N.C. there for I've never had to pick any up from you. Obviously our family values are better than yours seeing there is no "X" in our family. Peolple probably will judge you for not being able to correctly spell the state you live in.

Cliff and his family clearly don't value education. They obviously slept through their English classes.
