This practical, positive book reveals the many parenting strategies that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar use as they preside over America’s best-known mega-family.

Each time a new baby arrives, the press from around the world clamors for interviews and information. Visitors are amazed to find seventeen (baby number eighteen is due January 1, 2009) well-groomed, well-behaved, well-schooled children in a home that focuses on family, financial responsibility, fun—and must importantly, faith.

Readers will learn about the Duggars’ marriage—how they communicate effectively, make family decisions, and find quality time alone. They’ll discover how the Duggars manage to educate all their children at home, while providing experiences that go beyond the family walls, through vacations and educational trips. And they’ll see how the Duggar family manages their finances and lives debt-free—even when they built their own 7,000-square-foot house.

Answering the oft asked question—How can I do with one or two children what you do with seventeen(soon to be eighteen)?—Jim Bob and Michelle reveal how they create a warm and welcoming home filled with what Michelle calls “serene chaos.” They show how other parents can succeed whether they’re rearing a single child or several. With spiritual insights, experience-based wisdom, practical tips, and plenty of humorous and tender anecdotes, the Duggars answer the questions that pour into the family’s Web site on a daily basis—especially after every national media interview and TV appearance—including their segments on the Discovery Health Channel’s “Meet the Duggars” series.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar married in 1984. Some time after the birth of their first child, they prayed that God would give them a love for children like his love for children and that he would bless them with as many children as he saw fit in his timing. Soon after, Michelle became pregnant with twins! The Duggars currently have ten boys and nine girls, and all their names begin with “J”—Joshua, Jana and John-David (twins), Jill, Jessa, Jinger, Joseph, Josiah, Joy-Anna, Jedidiah and Jeremiah (twins), Jason, James, Justin, Jackson, Johannah, Jennifer, Jordyn-Grace, and Josie.

The Duggars are the #1 program on TLC/ Discovery Health / TLC documentaries and have appeared multiple times on national TV shows, such as The Today Show, Good Morning America, The View, Inside Edition, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Fox News Network, CNN, MSNBC, and others. Foreign television appearances include Italian Public Television, KBS (Korean Broadcasting System), and Discovery Home & Health (UK & Australia). They have been featured in magazine and newspaper articles in China, India, New Zealand, Australia, France, and Germany. As a family project, the Duggars built a seven-thousand-square-foot home. Both Jim Bob and Michelle are licensed real estate agents and conduct the Jim Sammon’s Financial Freedom Seminar in their community. They purpose to live completely debt-free—postponing  purchases until they have the cash. Jim Bob served in the Arkansas House of Representatives from 1999 to 2003 and was a candidate for the U.S. Senate in 2002.

Michelle Duggar has been married for more than twenty years to her husband, Jim Bob, and they are blessed with nineteen children. The Duggars have the #1 program on TLC/Discovery Health/TLC documentaries and have appeared on national television shows, such as the Today show, Good Morning America, The View, Inside Edition, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and others.

Die Familie Duggar ist ganz aussergewöhnlich! Sie haben bisher 18 Kinder. Und es sollen sogar noch mehr werden!
In diesem Buch beschreiben sie ihr Familienleben, das vor allem durch ihren starken Glauben geprägt ist.
Und wie es möglich ist, 18 Kinder groß zu ziehen.
Das Buch ist auf englisch, aber sehr einfach zu lesen, da in vielen Kapiteln gehalten.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Lots of background info not in the shows! 29. November 2008
Von F. Tregay - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I had my library order this book for me for their collection, and it arrived early (hence the review before publication date). I read the book in a few hours today. It is quite an interesting read with lots of information that has never been included in their television specials. The Duggars write about their political run, child rearing philosphies, daily schedule, organizing and chore methods, their businesses (past and present), and many more topics.

There are many recipes and pictures with captions (some from before they had any kids) scattered throughout the book. Most of the recipes are available on their family website, though. The Duggars even included a floor plan of their home which cleared up some confusion for me as to where things were located after watching their tv shows.

I was surprised to read that even though their home was professionally decorated by Discovery Health/TLC, there were a couple of things not included/completed in their home their first year that many of us would not want to live without in our own homes. They had to save up to afford them. I think some of us probably get the wrong impression from their shows that they have a lot of money in the bank. After reading the book I believe that they really are frugal and need to be to provide for their family.

I wish the book had included more information on how they really live frugally today. Possibly some information on the menus they follow to budget food expenses or more overall budget/expense information on how they truly afford 17+ kids, would have made an interesting addition. Also, there is only a little tidbit about the girls' "dress code". I wish they had included more information about how they came to decide on it and when they started the modest dress code.

It was overall an interesting read and gave me a more complete understanding of this large God fearing family.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Inspiring! 16. August 2009
Von Airheart - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I didn't check reviews before I bought this book because a friend read it and had nothing but praise for it. I must admit that I am humbled by the system the Duggar parents have in place for their family, and realize that the Duggars are some of the most loved kids in print, if not the country.

What bothers me, only came about after I read the book and skimmed through some of the reviews here. Some are ugly, while the rest are downright untrue (which a person would know if they actually read/or paid attention to the book).

First, the Duggars are not fanatics. There is obviously a regular mention of the faith that guides their lives and their children's lives in the book, but if you want a Bible study, you'll need to buy another book too. The kids are reared with a ton of attention, love, and time with their parents and their siblings. In a country where teen pregnancy, drug use, and Brittney Spears wanna-be's run rampant, then this family may seem bizarre to some; but to those of us who look for an alternative to the current state of affairs for children in this country, then the Duggars are a fresh breath of air.

Two, there is absolutely no mention of "corporal punishment" in this book, as one review mentions. Whether or not you feel spankings are appropriate for your children, this book is neutral on the subject. It is not even mentioned. As for the "blanket time" escape consequences, as one reviewer assumes includes spanking, there's a step-by-step process which Michelle clearly outlines which NEVER calls for spankings! It was a reward system, mostly with lots of praise and excitement, and perhaps an edible treat. I'm still shaking my head wondering how someone else missed this...

Another reviewer condems the family's choice to bear their own children instead of adopting. Wouldn't it make more sense to go hound the folks who are unable to conceive and are "eliminating" their children during IVF? I bet all the kids in the country would have a loving home if parents who insisted on forcing conception chose instead to adopt.

As for the claim that the Duggars are creating a global problem by creating too many lives...I can only call to attention the fact that Americans are under-populating our country. We are in a negative state of population growth, only kept steady by immigration at this point. And truly, with the hearts these children have, hearts to serve their neighbors, aren't these the exact kind of people we WANT filling our country/world?

To continue...there's a remark about Jim Bob's business practice, where he buys low, and sells high. This IS SIMPLE business. It's how business is done. If businesses didn't do it, there would be no more businesses. How does this person expect Jim Bob to feed his children? If he didn't buy items (like the land he mentions in the book, or construction equipment) the people who were trying to sell at the time might starve. If he weren't offering said land or equipment for sale later, someone else would have to hunt elsewhere, or go without! He, as a business person, has an excellent eye for a deal, and for that reason, his family lives FREE of debt. How many of us can say the same?

Now for the lovely people who have donated time, advice, items, or skilled labor; who could judge them for helping? The family friend who is a widow and teaches piano comes to mind. I believe she teaches half-price to ALL of the members of her church. The Duggars didn't twist her arm, and bargain an elderly lady out of her food money. This woman has obviously picked something valuable up at church: it is better to give, than to receive. It is wonderful to serve others, esp. fellow-believers. It is admirable to serve those in need. I can't speak for the woman, but I would teach the Duggar children as she has done if I lived nearby and had the time. Why? Certainly not because I pity them. They don't need pity. Rather I would want to foster the growth of children who are great sources of light in a very dim world. Because they'll pass their talent along to another person who might not be able to afford it. Or, if I were a widow with no family at home, because those children are probably a lot of fun to be around.

To respond to the remarks about the recipes: they are fairly standard-American-diet, from what I could tell. One recipe calls for "parrafin" which is used for chocolate coatings for the sheen, and to avoid tempering. It is commonly used for chocolate coated nuts(among other things), and while I choose not to use it, I would point critical readers to the menu of any public school lunch, and tell me that those children eat any more healthfully...Are they getting any physical activity sitting at their desks all day long, while the Duggar children run around and play after they've had their lessons? I have yet to see an overweight Duggar, while about half of all other Americans are high on food, and low on exercise. Recipes were provided in the book; not meal plans. None of us know what rounded out a given meal, or how many salads were offered.

I am certain the Duggars have and will make mistakes as parents. They actually point to some in their book. They don't hide, or pretend to be perfect. There couldn't be two more humble people in the world. Which is precisely the reason I've written far more in a review that I intended to be short, sweet, and positive: Who, in their right mind would ridicule this pair, when they've shared their lives on t.v. and through this book, for the benefit of others? Who would go further, and spread inacurate information?

This family is an answer to prayer for us. Our children can watch other children on t.v. who respect their parents, dress and speak appropriately, and who share their faith. Many times while I was reading the book, my girls walked by and asked me to read out loud so they could hear too. The book is one I'll keep for the resources in the back, and pass along to friends who are interested.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Most honest book I've ever read 3. Dezember 2008
Von Laura - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I'm only half way through and I do love the Duggar's - but I have to say I cannot believe how frank and honest they are in this book - all the critiscims people have made of their family like "why doesn't Michelle breastfeed for birthcontrol?" - these are all addressed in the book. Also I'm ashamed to admit I assumed they had inherited money and that they got health insurance from Jim Bob's brief stint in the house of Reps - wrong wrong wrong - they are incredibly frugal and always have been - they started out with nothing married as teenagers and have saved and scrimped until they came to the relative financial security they have today (not wealth, security) - also they have a health insurance plan with high deductibles to make it more affordable - once again - I'm astounded they shared all these very personal details. I am absolutely loving this book and can't wait to finish.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Basic Overview of Family...Expected More 19. März 2009
Von HudsonGal - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I had greatly anticipated this book, not because I knew about this family (actually, I'd never heard of the show before, since we don't watch television) but because I am always looking for great resources on raising large families. This was an interesting inside look into this particular family, but I was sad that the "tips" were relegated largely to one chapter. Most of the book is about how Jim Bob & Michelle met and the various things that their family has done together (like campaigning for Jim Bob in AK and building a house together). While these anecdotal stories were interesting, it's not how the book was pitched. I expected more about the ins and outs of raising a large family, complete with plenty of tips and tricks learned over the years with 17 going on 18 children. I was somewhat disappointed, although it was still a fun read. I'm not sorry I read it, just glad that I borrowed it from the library rather than purchasing it. It's not a book I will be referencing again, probably.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting Peek! 17. Dezember 2008
Von Idaho Mom - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Although the narrative of this book is awkward as "Jim Bob" and "Michelle" both use the pronoun I, it was an interesting peek into their life for someone that has never seen the show. There were some good tidbits, but most was surface level and I would have enjoyed a bit more to their story. Nevertheless, it was a fun, easy read of a God-loving family. I actually thought they were "less-crazy" after reading their book.
