I wish the positive reviewers who brag about the Duggars like poster AA not being on welfare would take another look. I doubt if any of them could live their life. Sure you want to protect kids, bit shouldn't they have more free reign as they get older. Shouldn't you have more faith in them to do right? raising umpteen siblings only causes resentment Take it for those who have lived this life. Note it is only the females who are looking after the smaller kids when the parents go on dates. Here lately four of the married couples went on a date. What about letting the rest have some time like that? It seems the daughters are worth nil until they marry. If you are not Christian you should be concerned what this family teaches. Money or not,welfare or not this family wants everyone to live their life and tries to back candidates who come close to it. Some powerful mean dictators never had welfare but used their wealth for control.And if I only had a choice between Teen Mom and the Duggars I would rather not choose. There are gray areas.
