The Duggars-Children Hoarders
Families are the life-blood of humankind?s sustainability. Before World War II, many
households in the United States were an extended family or multigenerational. These units
consisted of parents, their offspring, the grandparents, aunts and uncles. The beginning
of suburbia in the 1950s gave rise to a progressive shift to nuclear families made up of
the mother, father and children. Not unlike previous generations, the trend now is
swinging back to the extended family arrangement for many different circumstances,
including economics. We also have the flip side of the coin--the modern family. The
modern family in America runs the whole gamut from the stay-at-home mother, the
bread-winner father and the two point three children to same sex couples that have adopted
children to complete their family tree. Then there is the Duggar family, a totally
off-the-chart clan that has redefined the term ?family.? The Duggars, have been made
famous because of their seemingly boundless brood. They further their status by allowing
their children to become ?reality stars? of The Learning Channel?s (TLC) production of ?19
Kids and Counting.? It all appears very innocent and light within the thirty minutes of
the well edited weekly show, but underneath the smiles there are some dark secrets. This
family is The parents, Jim Bob and Michelle,are exploiting of the children for financial
gain---- that may be worthy of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation
(FBI).
