Is it responsible to have a large number of children?


I've been watching TLC's "19 Kids and Counting" and have been debating on whether or not it's responsible to have so many children. What are some of your views on the subject?

    I totally concur with this premise! When my parents had me that was what they had in mind. They wanted to provide with a comfortable lifestyle as a child which included a college education!

    This is true. Children from large families DO receive less attention than children from small families. They are also more likely to be either poor or impoverished. Children from large families often seek attention elsewhere, often negative!

    One does not need siblings to have a full life. I am an only child and missed out on nothing! I have friends and activities. What you are stating about only children is totally fallacious in its premise!

    You have admitted that you treat your youngest better than your oldest children. You also acknowledged that you have cast your 3 oldest children aside for the youngest ones. Typical large family scenario that I have written about in my hubs.
