Lol! What did I misspell? Tell me so I can correct it before it's too late. Never mind. I changed it. I really know the spelling, but twice I substituted an "a" for the "o" in "Mormon".

I meant every word of what I said. I have observed this. Since I come from an artistic family, I have noticed that LDS families value the visual and performing arts. I was a Theater Arts minor and a dancer. I also participated in a teen beauty pageant and I met a very nice contestant who had a crazy (in a good way) sense of humor who was from upstate NY. I had no idea why some of the other girls, - particularly Southern Baptists, were gossiping (nice Christians about this girl behind her back. One came up to me and said "Do y'all know that Pam isn't a Christian?" (I may be little, but I do speak my mind - especially then. Sometimes TOO much.) She walked right into it with me! I said "Yes she is. She's LDS. YOU and your friends are the ones who aren't acting like Christians".

That was the end of that.

ETA - it is always better if someone from the outside "sets it straight" and I am known for not caring about what other people think. Which gets me in trouble at times.

They seem happy and well-cared for.
Nice to see a family together and smiling.
Rather than a broken family where the mom is on welfare, dad is nowhere to be found, and the kids are running around all hours of the night.

Yeah, I know how that works -- getting in trouble for speaking your mind.

Bunch of neanderthals. There is no reason to have many kids. Some people need to be neutered for betterment of mankind.

They are British, so they have health care, which is good. They appear to be members of the Church of England, so they are not Quiver Full Christian Dominionists.

What do they do to earn a living? Reading between the lines - the bake pies, so they have a little sweat shop going in inside their home.

People for some reason just LOVE families like this. So people give them things! Oh, and not surprisingly, they HAVE THEIR OWN TV SHOW! So without being asked, every kid is forced into living a very life. They probably endorse products. Appear on talk shows, television commercials etc.

I have some training in photograph reading - a practice used by some psychologists. Many of the children - particularly those in the middle, look overwhelmed, withdrawn and depressed. They didn't choose this life. Their parents did. I would have NEVER wanted to grow up this way. I would have not liked waiting in line to speak to my parents or sharing a bedroom with 3 or 4 sisters.

When do they get to express their individuality? I suppose they attend school. Then they have homework. House work. And forced baking.

I am ALL FOR CHILDREN HELPING AROUND the HOUSE and HAVING CHORES! And for families pulling together and helping one another out. But THIS sounds ALL CONSUMING.

The eldest kids seem to have inherited the "Family Trade" - Baby Making!

Ugghhh...I am not comfortable with any of this. Medically it is well known that it is ideal for there to be eighteen months between children. For the benefit of the mother, and of the baby.

This is why families of a higher educational level have children who achieve in school and statistically perform better on standardized tests, in school and socially. This situation can't be good for children.
