      This is a TLC show that started as a few specials narrated by the eldest of the eighteen Duggar children. This family is headed by Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, two very conservative people with strong Christian values.

      The show documents the unique struggles of a family of this size.

      Michelle home schools all of the children and each child is expected to help out in various ways between doing schoolwork and playing with their siblings.

      The children help cook, clean, do laundry, fix cars, do yard work and so on.


      The older children are also responsible for helping out with the younger children and there is a real sense of family there.

      Now the oldest son, Josh, is married and expecting a baby of his own, which I cannot wait to see.

      It is also interesting to see how the family deals with money.

      They are big believers in buying used, and saving the money that they didn’t spend on buying the item new.

      Jim Bob, with the help of his sons, managed to build their massive home slowly, as the ...


      • money became available to do so.

        My family is not very religious, and I certainly do not hold all of the same values as the Duggars, but that does not mean that I can not watch this show and appreciate the way that they run their household.

        I do understand, however, why this show and the family has been criticized.

        The children in this family appear to have to grow up faster than what you would usually expect.

        I, personally, find it sad that the children are not allowed to listen

        to music and dance, but to each their own.

        Regardless of your beliefs, and whether or not you agree with everything the Duggars do, watching them travel to Dollywood, go on a father-daughter camping trip, take a trip to New York City, plan a wedding, and prepare for a baby or a grandchild is fascinating.

        They are so organized, and work so well as a team, that they do things that you would never expect a family of this size to be able to do, and they seem to do it with ease!
