More info: A 41-year-old northwestern Arkansas woman is expecting her 18th child on New Year’s Day, to join seven sisters and 10 brothers, including two sets of twins. The oldest is 20 and the youngest nine months; all are home-schooled and all their first names start with the letter J. The mom, Michelle Duggar, said she and her husband, Jim Bob, will “keep having children as long as God wills it.”

Question: How many children in a family is too many, in your estimation?
