Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar Win Parenting Award

by at . Comments

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, creators of 18 kids and stars of 18 Kids and Counting on TLC, i.e. the Weird People Reality Show Cannel, really are good parents.

At least according to the National Parents' Day Council, which named the Duggars its 2009 National Parents of the Year. Congrats to the Arkansas couple!

The Council assures the public that the selection was the result of the Duggars' quality parenting, not just quantity, in praising their high standards:

"Their highly organized household centers around spiritual principles and is obviously filled with huge amounts of love, grace, joy and mutual respect."

Yes, they have a reality show, but you have to give Jim Bob and Michelle credit for at least living debt free and seemingly like fairly grounded people.

Congratulations to Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar!

The Duggars picked up their accolade (and counting) at Maryland's Tontitown City Hall, with their 10 boys and 8 girls in attendance for the honor-bestowal.

Their eldest is now married and expecting a baby of his own next month, and Michelle is also pregnant with their 19th child, due early next year. Yes, 19.

Jim Bob and Michelle narrowly beat out Jon Gosselin, Octomom, Dina Lohan and Kris Kardashian. Just kidding. Those peeps weren't even nominated!

Its okay to take advantage of Technology and use it for Permanent Birth Control, cos Abstinance is obviously not an option!

Is she near the Guiness Book record for childbearing to one man in one lifetime??!! Good grief! How is that even physically possible?? That must be a record. She's like a rabbit on steroids, although I do think she seems to be a very caring and capable parent.
