Many people criticize us trads for breeding like cockroaches.

When you have your 4th child people say," when are you going to stop having children?"

people in Saint Mary's,KS says we are a cult that we Are rude and dress as if on the Little House on the Prairie.

They say that all they see in town are moms pushing strollers and a swarm of children around.

It sounds lovely and it sounds like people are upset because you haven't caved into the degrading slavery of the modern culture. 

If you're really into actually conversing wtih these people, write down the criticisms and then defend the good reasons for why you do what you do.  Then ask them if they want an analysis of what trads see when they look at the twisted and perverse culture and the dupes that buy into it. 

Ask them what they think of pornography, out of wedlock children, abortion, euthanasia, immodesty vs. modesty, gender blurring vs. authentic masculinity and femininity.


My sister in law says "My children will inherit your land." Chuckle so it seems that it is just a witty remark, these things always happens at supermarkets.
You could also ask them where their intolerance comes from.  Liberals hate it when you point out liberal intolerance.

I couldn't care less what people think, its not their business and that would be my response.

SO TRUE.

People often make such awful snide comments about others.  I know quite a few people who make comments about large families and such in my presence because they don't realize that I'm "one of those types," just can't get pregnant. 

Woman I know: "Oh, my sister's crazy -- five kids, pregnant, homeschools!  Can you IMAGINE!?" 
Me: "Why yes, I can imagine.  She sounds blessed."
The look on her face was awesome.

The key is to always be polite and leave them thinking -- questioning the brainwashing that society has done to them.

Pray for them and remember 'If the world hate you, know ye, that it hath hated me before you. If you had been of the world, the world would love its own: but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember my word that I said to you: The servant is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you: if they have kept my word, they will keep yours also.'  John 25:18-20
+1 and +1 to Gerard and OCFlower...

When you have your 4th child people say," when are you going to stop having children?" = "No medical reason to limit the family, it's up to God and I faithfully follow Him.  We just won't buy that new big screen TV every year or that new car ever 2 years."

They say that all they see in town are moms pushing strollers and a swarm of children around. = "Isn't it great?!"

Maybe not serious on some of those replies, I'm more having fun right now and maybe wouldn't be that bad in real life with some of those!  :-)
