So the Duggars 18th child a baby girl was born on the 18th of december in Rogers, Ar which happend to be real close to where I live!! Their newest addition came in weighing 7lbs 3oz and was 20 inches long. They named her Jordyn-grace makiya Duggar. All 18 of their childrens names begin with the letter J. You think it would be difficult to remember that many J names but they seem to manage. They came through the airport I work at a few months back and all the children were very well behaved and polite and it was neat to get to see them. I don't think I could have that many kids but they seem to be doing alright so far. What do you think about having that many children?

I know that at one point I wanted to have a lot of kids, but I don't think I could manage those many kids. Especially if you say they were so well behaved, they must be getting a lot of attention. I think I saw something about these kids on here before to be honest, and if it were you that said, sorry I don't remember that you did.

Someone posted one a little while back I think about them getting there own tv show on tlc. I have watched the show mayne once but I have never really gotten into wanting to watch it. The mom home schools all of the kids and somehow the seem to manage. I guess they own quite a few businesses and stuff so they have the money to raise them all. There oldest has moved out though and is married now and then they have a set of twins that just turned eighteen. I thought I wanted a lot of kids too but after having my second I am pretty sure that I am done!!

I don't think the discussion I saw said anything about TLC. I remember the part about the money but no idea about all the businesses. I think it's great that they are happy, and I'll have to look into the show myself to investigate, lol... We aren't expecting yet, we're waiting for the right time.. plus to get married! The most we're thinking of is four kids. Two girls and two boys.

I think that it is great to have that many children if you are capable. You must keep in mind that the children should be raised properly. I think that the Duggars take good care of their children and raise them nicely. I also think they try to devote time to each of their children which is important in that type of family. I think that it is important for children in large families to have support other than their parents. This way, they can go to someone else if they need to talk about something. I think that the amount of children that you have should depend on the care that you are able to provide. I know that I would never want to have that many kids because I do not feel I could devote enough time to each of them.
