Please note that we will not be hosting a discussion on whether their number of children is right or wrong, as the last two posts we’ve attempted to run have been closed due to fighting. Comments relating negatively to their family size will not be published. If you wish to discuss multiple viewpoints, Television Without Pity has a great thread in their forums about the family and their documentaries.
