It’s official; Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar are expecting their 2oth child. How exciting for them!
Unfortunately, the majority of the comments I’ve seen on Facebook have been negative, bashing, hurtful comments. And I just don’t get it. If you don’t agree with something, that’s fine. But if you don’t care, why go through the trouble of doing your best to hurt that person?
One of the biggest beefs people seem to have with the Duggars is that the kids do so much housework, and that the older kids help with the younger kids too much (their buddy system.)
Basically, that Michelle is popping out babies then letting the older girls raise them.
Again, I don’t get it.
No, the kids are not raising the younger siblings. Instead, the parents are doing a great job training them and preparing them to be able to maintain a house and family in the future. Personally, I think it’s wrong to not give children chores and responsibilities.
What many people seem to forget is that, it’s only in the last few generations that kids have had it so easy.
Throughout all of history, children learned responsibility early on because life was hard work! As soon as kids were able to help, they did. They had their time to play, too. But work needed to be done, and every able member of the family did their part. It’s only recently that society has decided that kids need to be kids as long as possible!
And guess what?
It’s the last few generations that have brought up children who, generally speaking, are lazier, more ungrateful, have poorer work ethic, are materialistic, and are not self-sufficient when they could be, compared to past generations.
What are your thoughts?
(be nice, no bashing!)
