Do you think as a parent that you can divide your attention amongst 9 kids? Hubby and i have 2 (girls) 13 & 9 and when they were younger, well i wondered (sometimes i still do (my 13 year old is a major drama queen!!) But i wonder...9 would seem to me that somehow they are missing out on the most important thing, their parent's full attention!! Thoughts?

I think it's fair. I don't really think it's possible to give them all the attention you would give less children but I think that they would get plenty of attention from their siblings and other people such as grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. I couldn't imagine having that many children. I don't even know how you would afford it or have the patience but I think you have the money and the patience, go for it!

yes you are right... think it would be mostly unfair to the kids if not any1 else!!! kids have a right to get a bit of attention and pampering from their parents...but if a person has 8-9 kids...theu obviously cant divide their attention...after all parents have their own life to look after...!! so that would most probably lead to kids easily being mislead and prone to bad the parents wont be there to monitor their activities..!!
