I have to agree here. (I don't know about this site, haven't checked out much of it yet), but on the TLC one I couldn't believe how critical they were. The Roloff family life reminds me so much of mine. I have 4 kids (around their ages) and sometimes like is chaotic. My kids can be disrespectful, I may not handle things "right" in the eyes of others, some days I wonder if one of them won't kill the others off before bed time. I think the show airs most of that because it's good tv. Ratings rule! I just wonder how their lives would hold up under a microscope (and editors)?

I for one love that the Roloff family are not perfect, tell me honestly if you would want to watch a "perfect family" ? It makes me think my family is a normal family when I see the exact same things played out there! Sure tempers may rise for different reasons but the reality is how the situation is handled is what really counts not the cause.

I am amazed at some of the things people criticise the Roloffs for yet if they were a "perfect family" who never argued and responded perfectly to every situation, how many would keep watching, how many would criticise them for "being too perfect"? People would then accuse them of playing it up for the camera!

Ok Matt may not go to many of the kids sporting activities but so what, he certainly shows enough interest in how they got on at a game and supports them in other ways. Not everyone is into sports, I know I am not and yet I encouraged my kids to play, spent time asking about their games and supported them when it really counted like at finals ect. but I didn't attend games except for special ones as I am just not into it and my kids appreciated the effort I put in taking them to and from games and attending the ones they deemed important.

Of course they aren't perfect which is why I like them. They come across as the average every day family that "I" can relate to.

I wouldn't. Which is why I haven't volunteered to be on a reality show.

Think about that for a minute.
