Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that 19 Kids and Counting focuses on the real-life ups and downs of a large conservative Christian family. Many of the family activities on display promote family togetherness, respect for elders, firm but loving discipline, and more positive family behaviors. In later season of the show the Duggars experience a miscarriage as well as have a child who has some special health needs, which brings up the question of why the parents continue to have children. Not everyone will agree with the family's choices, but there are no other iffy issues to content with.

Sexual Content

A person's virginity and premarital sex, as it relates to abstinence, appropriate courting behavior, and marriage, is occasionally discussed.


Michelle's troubled pregnancies, and the subsequent death of and funeral for an unborn child, is a major theme in later seasons of the show.
