"There aren't enough hours in the day for these children to experience the parent/child bond that they deserve. Especially the younger ones. Instead they're being raised by their siblings while mom and dad try to figure out new ways to wh*re their family out." Exactly Blue. These people aren't saints who have been blessed by God. They are pimping their kids out on TV.

geebers, thats how most families in the world work, the older children learn responsibility by helping out the younger ones. NONE of the older ones have ever expressed anything but Joy in being role models to the younger children. how is that irresponsible? its actually the right thing to do. "hellbent on having more children" well to me it looks more like heavenly blessed to give life and joy and a good home and upbringing.

Sorry there is NO way these parents are raising the kids by themselves. They expect their older kids to raise the ones they have no time for. I find that totally irresponsible and proof that they obviously do not have the resources to take care of the babies they chose to have. This family annoys me and I echo the sentiment that they should have adopted instead if they were that hellbent on having more children.

Agreed, blue. I can't respect any parents whose parenting style including wh*ring out their children on TV. That includes that Jon and Kate Plus 8 crap and every celebrity to puts their baby on the cover of People or US Weekly.

I know you didn't name names, you just started counting, which was why I didn't know who you wanted to respond and who not. :)

Angelina's been to Haiti, DR, Chile, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Sierra Leone, India, and many others and has not adopted children from those countries.

I didn't name any names, a lot of people on different sites say she's addicted and it's weird. If she was addicted he have like 10 adopted by now.

"But if I were in charge there would be no more new babies until we find homes for all the kids we already made." That's what bothered me, I just think it's ridiculous. And I don't care for Angelina at all, so I may be biased in that opinion.

Are the Duggers always such a controversial topic, BTW? I don't read Lil that much, but now I'm curious.

*Although I looked back over the comments and don't see what she said that was so bad :? Whatevs.

Well, the Angelina-related comment I agreed and responded to was made by Frank y Ava, so I don't know what that has do with True. :shrug: I do think it's a bit harsh to characterize Angelina as "she picks one up every time she wanders out of the country" for doing something of great benefit to the children she's adopted, but to each her own, right? :)

But Angelina also has her own biological children. I think TS made a very heavy statement that definitely rubbed me the wrong way. I don't deserve a guilt trip over unwanted children because I'd like to have my own.

I think Frank y Ava was just pointing out the hypocrisy of belittling Jolie for adopting--which helps the children already born into the world and does do more to address overpopulation than just popping out dozens of new babies--while glorifying this family.

Greggie, I said Angelina was a hoarder, what, a month ago? So I think they're addressing that statement. She has more than three kids, whoever said that, she picks one up every time she wanders out of the country. And I think that of her because she also has a full film-making career, and I personally don't think she has time for all her children. I have two cats, I'd like to have ten cats, but do I have time for ten cats? No. I don't support the Duggers, but I think they're entitled to have as many children as they have time and love to care for. and I don't think responsible adults who choose to have their own children are bad people or shouldn't be allowed to have their own children until all the orphanages are empty and I think it's a pretty ridiculous thing to hear from someone who doesn't have or want children.

I've never said Angelina was addicted to kids, adopting or otherwise, so I'm not sure if I'm supposed to pipe up or not. *lol* I see that a lot more over on Pop rather than lil, so I don't really see a lot of inconsistency in those that have posted in this thread that it's "ok" for the Duggars.
