Octomom: Should Her Kids Be Taken Away?

by at . Comments

Should Octomom Nadya Suleman have custody of her 14 kids transferred to local officials? She's clearly in way over her head, and currently under investigation by DCFS over the horrendous living conditions in her La Habra, Calif., residence.

This has renewed debate over what is in the children's best interest.

Octo Mom

Octomom's hairstylist, Stephanie, called the cops on her after laying eyes on the squalor - one working toilet, graffiti, malnourished and unclean bodies - first hand.

DCFS officials are deciding what to do with the children, though Orange County police said Wednesday that no criminal investigation against Nadya is pending.

Cops who conducted preliminary interviews at the home said “no crimes were noticed,” but that doesn't mean she can't - and shouldn't - give up her brood.

Sad as it is, if kids are defecating outside, sleeping on floors and getting locked in rooms while Nadya Suleman does chores, would they be better off elsewhere?

No one wants a family to be broken up, but she's not doing those kids - or taxpayers - any favors right now. Tell us: Should Octomom's kids be taken away?

I THINK THIS YOUNG LADY NEEDS HELP IN MOTHERING AND UNDERSTANDING. SHE IS PROBABLY THE PRODUCT OF HER OWN CHILDHOOD. THE DOCTOR WHO GAVE HER THE RESULT OF THIS DILEMNA NEEDS TO STEP UP AND PAY. WAS DNA DONE ON KIDS? MAYBE SHE NEEDS TO LIVE IN DAY CARE FACILITY TYPE HOME SO HER KIDS CAN HAVE FUN AND REALITY OF LIFE. HELP HER, TAKING AWAY HER KIDS WILL BE DRAMATIC FOR CHILDREN, GET A GRIP.

The state needs to step in and use the money she gets to pay for their food, shelter and clothing taking all control of money away from her. If she don't control the money she can't waste it on bullshit like expensive haircuts. Also she doesn't dress like someone desperate for money. I'm not against single parenting by any means, it's very obvious this is a case that in-veto fertilization shouldn't have been allowed to happen. What the hell was her so-called friend thinking she already had a house full of kids. Ok plain and simple give the dumb whore supervised help and make her take care of her own kids.

This woman needs help, and so do those children. She is clearly mentally unstable, but love her heart, I think she is trying more that most parents do. She is just overwhelmed. She wants to be super woman, but at some point, you have to become totally exhausted. It will get easier as they get older, but they are so young. I can't even imagine Raising them with help, let alone all alone. Prayers to her and the children. I think she needs a better support system both with the day to day care of the children, as well as addressing her mental issues. The kids should stay with her, but she should have state mandated care givers at least 10 hours per day.

All "14" kids? I don't think I could handle that. At least maybe "3" or "4" kids o.k. but "14" kids....very tough and a big sacrifice to make if some of Octomom's kids get taken away and very tough.....but then you're right...Octomom should change her name to Psychomom.

Look, she can't take care of them. Taking custody and getting them in a better environment doesn't mean she won't or can't see them. Just means she isn't able to care for them now. Her situation might improve, but in the mean time, don't we all hope for the best for those children? It's not judging her, goodness knows she is trying. But this situation is not good nor healthy for those children. Help needs to be provided to her.

She's getting government assistance and getting 500 dollar haircuts. Where did that money come from? Oh wait, that's right, the government. Why did her parents stop helping her? I can't imagine why. Her house was a mess with graffiti on the walls, the kids were outside eating and not allowed back in the house till they were done. Oh and they have to poop and pee outside on potty chairs. Why doesn't she have running water? Probably cause the money that should have paid the bill paid for her haircut. Yes, there are mothers out there that are worse but she made her bed and she's looking for a handout. Take the kids away. It's better than being neglected.

So sad that so many are intent upon destroying this woman, who is in the lives of her 14 children. There are so many other situations in this world that are frankly unacceptable. This gal, though she has way to many kids for a single parent, does deserve credit for trying to make it work. Maybe a few folks should put their money where their critical mouth is and help her out. Maybe a local church could show her the love of Christ and set up meals and free daycare so that the mom gets a break. Hey, the fact is that she does want her kids and she has a lot of them. Do not damn her but join her in supporting her desire to want to do right. Even if she does put the kids in a room while she cleans the rest of the house. The fact here is that she wants them to have a clean house. Could we all just look for the good in each situation and help solve that which appears to be unlovely.
