The TLC show follows the family in their home state of Arkansas. Does this show interest you?

We have an over populated world. Given this knowledge these people are a disgrace. And of course there has to be some ridiculous religious slant behind their insane selfishness.
Hi Sherry, thanks for your comment. I found their lifestyle intriguing as well, which is why I posed this Q.
Totally agree, the Duggars' lifestyle is absolutely atrocious. Michelle keep having children willy nilly without concern as to how this effects the other children. However, what the Duggars do is typical of large family behavior.
What about education? These children will not get the education they deserve because there are too many of them. This sort of behavior should have ended a century ago.
Thanks ChristinS for your feedback. My daughter feels the same way about 'kids raising kids' and has only watched a couple of episodes.
Some people sadly live in a universe that is different from that of logical people, Peeples.
When you are right peeples you are right.
I have yet to look up their back story, and am curious as to what religious affiliation they are. I know they raise their children very differently from the rest of the world.
They are part of the Quiverfull movement. This is a very fundamentalist Baptist sect. Women are exhorted to let God decide how many children to have. In their minds, they will stop having children when God deems it so.
The negative impact is also to the environment and to the education of this brood.
Not only the Duggars but MOST large/very large families. Such families really AREN'T normal in the least. Their world is BIZARRO world where the abnormal is.....WELL, NORMAL.
Thanks for your feedback. It surprises me as how different they live in this world-exclusive in their lifestyle; a community onto its own and in connection with church & other large families.
It's not only the Duggars but the typical large/very large family of 6 or more children per household.Children from such families have a HARD life-raising themselves, doing without, working from childhood,often foregoing education to support family.
Not only the Duggars, but large/very large families in general. 1-2 children are ENOUGH for any couple to have. Better for the environment and indefinitely better for the parents & children overall.
I agree. Why promote such vandalism to the environment? These people are not heroic but stupid.
Stupid is THE LEAST of what the Duggars are. I have more words to describe the Idiotgars a/k/a Brioodgars, oops, better hold my venomous, vituperative, and vitriolic tongue.
Thanks for commenting, Rod. I appreciate your comment to Christin's reply; and also the feedback that gmwilliams has given.
Denise, I have written an article on the Duggars and so have many hubbers on HubPages.
