39. I agree completely PP. I don't see myself budging on this because I am the
product of a huge family. No matter how well-intentioned these people are or how much money they have, they cannot possibly provide the attention and individual care each child needs. And I don't find it cute or admirable that they've forced their older children to take over parenting responsibilities. Can you imagine if somebody forced their teen child to work full time and support the family (and not out of dire necessity but out of selfishness)? People would freak out, it would be all over the news! But the Duggans can force their children to be un-paid nannies and we're supposed to say "to each his own"? I don't think so.

That's not even getting into the fact that the earth doesn't need any more humans. Or that there are millions of children who don't have families and could sure use one.
