Well I have hit the dam with producing any more progeny. But feel free to go to any of those worldwide countries that's causing the problem, and tell them to shape up.

It doesn't have to be that yooj when you live in a 1st World country following (for now) EU guidelines for a somewhat more equitable distribution of the National Treasure than is common in the U.S.

It's crazy on many levels. First of all with that many kids the kids are having to care for one another. I am a strong believer that parents should take care of the kids. Not possible with 21. It's dangerous and she is putting her life at risk when she has so many kids.

Just on my dad's side, my grandma had 6 children. They gave her 11 grandchildren. I am the 7th of the 11.

None of us are on welfare. All eleven of us are college educated. I am the poorest because my 11th was disabled at age 2. And by the way; ALL OBGYN's say: "You will DIE" after your fourth, lol. They can't get over themselves & they have been indoctrinated by population-control politics that infiltrated the medical community after the CREST study was published in the 70s.

Good for him for getting his vasectomy reversed before it did any damage. I had my tubal reversed because it made me sick for 11 years.
What fantasy world do you live in if you think the world isn't overpopulated? Tell me without quoting Scripture.

I am amazed that her uterus hasn’t fallen out. Yes, I know that sounds crude, but I truly am amazed. Wow.

PARENTS should parent children - NOT older siblings.

This is selfish, attention seeking behavior, What are they trying to prove? They can not have the best interest"s of their children as a priority.

There is nothing wrong with a large family, however; keeping the family in single digits, seems reasonable. Five is a large family, Eight is a large family. Twenty
his madness, It's a small orphanage or group home rather than a family.

I also think that TLC, is irresponsible by airing these programs and making celebrities out of these people. They are mostly members of far right religious groups, who seek to turn the United States into a "Christian Nation"

The Founding Fathers were clear in their vision of the US as a secular country,

I feel certain that these kiddos are having their childhood's stolen from them by being forced to be parents, not children.

STOP WATCHING these people on TV and stop making them rich. Maybe this kind of programs vanish into obscurity.

.
I had a neighbor with 5 kids.....the older kids were surrogate parents to the younger kids. When it go sad, the parents were too busy to attend the youngest kids school plays/events.........they already did that boring stuff with the oldest kids. Parents should have had less kids, supported those kids more rather than spread their time thinner with the larger group.

My father's family: 6 sons! Only one son got married for more than a month, that one son was the only one of the 6 to ever have children. Decades later those 4 grandchildren produced 10 great grandchildren. So big families don't always produce tons of offspring.
