I read this.
"LAKEVIEW, Mich. — A Michigan couple have 14 boys.
And no regrets — regardless of what online opinion-givers have to say about it.
"There are some really mean people in the world. And it doesn't matter," said Jay Schwandt, the father of the boy brood. "We happen to be this great big family with 14 boys that has so much fun every second that we're together. And we still get horrible comments."
Some comments focus on whether Schwandt and his wife, Kateri, 43, are capable of giving each child enough attention, a criticism their fourth son, Brandon, dismisses.
"It's just what we grew up with. I don't know how to explain it. It's just life. It's our life," said Brandon Schwandt, a 19-year-old hockey standout who recently signed to play with a junior team in Florida."

And coming from 10 where my parents adopted two more and DFS took them I'm a bit jaded about the big family thing. Add to that my sister is a polygamist and I've seen several of her kid's brothers and sisters interacting with their parents and each other. And they have more than 2 adult for that mammoth brood of polygamist kids.
I agree with the critics. Father Schwandt had 7 sons, had 7 sons had Father Schwandt and they didn't laugh and they didn't cry...and Mother Schwandt had 7 sons, had 7 sons had Mother Schwandt and they didn't laugh and they didn't cry...
I don't think even the most loving parent on the planet and my polygamist sister is sooooper loving could divide their loving attention between so many. To think it is possible is laughable in my opinion. They do what most big families advertising their big family goodness juju do (mine did) and they aggregate themselves into being "cheaper by the dozen."
