More child exploitation
26 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

People want to pretend this is a happy, religious family and that anyone who objects to them does so on religious basis.

But the reality is, this is just another family exploiting their kids for money and fame. To make it worse, they force their daughters to raise and parent the children once the next one comes along. They have so many kids, the children have to set appointments to have a few minutes with mom and dad. The oldest daughters take care of the children and do all the chores. So they are raising lazy males and taking away any childhood the daughters would have.

They isolate these kids to minimize their knowledge of the real world and their real options. They don't even let them go to a real college, just a self study program pretending to be a college. They claim it's the dad's decision, his money. But the reality is, they have earned their own money on the show and they are adults. It should be their decision.

But instead, they want the daughters to become future baby factories just like the mom - despite the risks and damage it does and despite the fact that having that many children in such a short time and not raising them means the parents are parents in name only. Rather they are slave owners.

This is cult like behavior. Cults are afraid of education and they are afraid of exposing their people to the outside world.

Don't support this show because doing so supports child exploitation.
