Weekly Activities/ Day 9/ Activity 2/ Week 2

Activity 2
Some families are very large and some are very small. Some of the smallest families are found in China where parents are allowed, by law, to have only one child. This is quite different from countries like America (U.S.A.) where some families have as many as 19 or 20 children. It is rare but it does happen!
In America, there is actually a family with 19 children who have their own television show called ’19 Kids and Counting.’ All 19 children have the same two parents (Jim Bob and Michelle) and every single one of the children has a name starting with the letter ‘J.’ The oldest children is a boy named Josh and the youngest is a girl named Josie. Amazing!
If you’d like to see a small clip from the show, follow this link: 19 Kids and Counting
Imagine that you were one of the Duggar children and you had 18 brothers and sisters. What do you think it would be like to have so many sisters and brothers living with you in one house? On your blog please tell us what you would like and what you wouldn’t like about living in such a large family.

I would like to live: in a large family because you can get a lot of help
I wouldn’t like to live: in a large family because sometimes your parents can’t afford this and that for a number of kids and besides who's going to look after the kids when their parents are busy at work. I mean it’s certainly fine if the oldest sibling looks after the younger ones but what if the Oldest sibling went out with his/ her friends and left the younger ones at home… by themselves . Secondly sometimes your brothers and sisters treats you unfairly or sometimes bullies you or makes you cry.

  3. Hi Von
    Nice reasons why you would like and wouldn't like to have 18 siblings. Keep up the blogging!

  4. Hi Von,

    I think that you have come up some excellent reasons for this activity. It is clear that you've really thought about it and done your best to consider the pros and cons of living in a very large family. I, personally, would struggle to share a house with 20 other people. I think that it would be really chaotic and loud!

    I quite like living with my little family of five people - my partner, his mother, his son and my son. It's quite an eclectic mix but it works for us :)
