Yes, that's exactly why I don't want children. However did you guess?

I welcome our new Giant Ant Overlords.

Breastfeeding is a natural form of birth control, because the body knows that if you're still nursing one baby, you don't need to be having more yet.
Breastfeeding is one of the most ineffective forms of birth control out there. Don't count on it.

My wife used to teach piano to a family of 14 children and it was one of the best families I've ever been around. The kids were normal, liked one another and were well liked by others. But their mother could have been a CEO of a F500 company and the dad was a very (VERY) successful salesman, so they had a lot of resources available to them.

The Duggars are ridiculous. If you've ever watched the show, you'll know that it's the oldest girls (not the boys, heaven forbid they did woman's work) who are raising all these babies, and doing all the cooking, cleaning and what have you. Really disturbing situation.

My Irish twins are proof of that.

Am I allowed to say Irish twins?

I have to say, I watch the show whenever I happen to see it, and I agree. The things I read about them are kind of shocking. Very limited TV and internet usage, all dating must go through the father first, all dates must be chaperoned by a parent, girls can't have short hair or wear long pants, girls must stay at home until they get married, girls can't go to college, no physical interaction or kissing until marriage. Plus the dad ran for the US Senate a while back, which means he would have been gone a lot of the time.

I guess I shouldn't judge, and if they're happy and following their religion without hurting anyone... it's just VERY different.

i would like to see some movements in state congress equal to those that would like to prevent gays from adopting to prevent people from having no more than 4 children, because in my religious personal view, children need no more than 3 siblings because they will get confused. every child has one mother than one father -- NOT several older sisters -- and with so many older siblings acting as de facto parents, a child could, again, get confused.

please, think of the children.

With so many fuck ups out there I just find it hard to go after a family that functions well, even though it's different.

^ The Quebec government actually does that in the form of incentives. Not sure what the current programs are but there have been cash bonuses to have babies and top-up of federal income replacement during maternity leave. They also have had $5/day daycare subsidized by the province.
