Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard are proving once again that they do not play by their family’s rules.
Of course, because we are everyday, ordinary citizens, we support their rebellious behavior.
But someone, anyone, please go get Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar a wet cloth!
As many Counting On fans know, because of the family’s strict religious background, Jim Bob and Michelle have very intense rules set in place for their 19 children.
And these rules are no joke.
Besides no hugging before marriage, no celebrating Halloween, and no dancing, they are also expected to not further their education by going to college.
While most parents get angry or frustrated at their child for not wanting to attend school, Michelle and Jim Bob’s parenting skills are rather different and very outdated.
They believe that their homeschooling is enough to get the job done, which wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing if they didn’t draw the line at learning outside of their walls.
It’s honestly sad that Jim Bob and Michelle are so committed to raising their children by these weird standards that they’re willing to jeopardize their children’s futures.
But when it comes to Jill and Derick Duggar, well, it actually sounds like they may want what’s best for their kids!
According to a new confession by Jill’s husband, their children may not be following their unconventional path of learning!
In a new post on Instagram, a fan asked Derick if he and Jill’s sons, Samuel and Israel, will head to college one day, to which he responded, “Probably.”
Derick’s college statement surprised many fans, mainly because Jill is very open up about how much she loves homeschooling her two boys.
“Even when I was looking at homeschooling curriculum (yes, Israel [only] just turned three but I’m just excited!), I was reminded of all the fun things my mom did with us kids to help make learning fun!” Jill said in a May 2018 post.
She added that she is always reminded by her mom in some way, whether it be cooking, gardening, singing, organizing, or teaching.
But luckily, it sounds like she won’t be as strict on her children as her mom was on her, and her 18 siblings.
Derick’s thoughts on education may have recently changed since the controversial Duggar-in-law decided to attend college last year.
He is enrolled in a three-year program at the University of Arkansas School of Law and he is very open about his experience.
“Loved spending some quality time with my oldest son, who accompanied me as I wrapped up some stuff on campus today,” Derick captioned a photo of Israel inside of a library, adding #futurelawhog.
Radar reported that Derick decided to go back to school after he and Jill got kicked off the family’s hit TLC show for his homophobic comments regarding Jazz Jennings.
Jill, according to Radar, is working as a midwife for the time being.
We can only hope that Derick and Jill continue to bend the Duggar family rules for the sake of their family maybe turning out somewhat normal; besides, we would love to see their kiddos start a new family tradition!
You know, one that allows you to make friends, connect with the world, and well, learn things other than the bible.
Unless, of course, their TLC show is still going strong. Wow, that’s a terrifying thought.
