‘Counting On’ Fans Slam Jill Duggar For Perpetuating Derick’s Beliefs With Her Kids?

Counting On star Jill Duggar has always been a fan favorite but her latest post has stirred up some ire among Duggar fans. Despite being separated from the show, fans keep in sync with Jill Duggar on her Instagram page. Her latest reveal has fans wondering if she is teaching her kids something that mirrors Derick Dillard‘s beliefs. These are the same beliefs that got the couple plucked from TLC’s Counting On.

Counting On Alum Jill Duggar Dillard Raises Ire

Fans of TLC’s Counting on and Jill Duggar took a gander at a book that she posted online. Once this happened some rather condemning comments emerged among Counting On fans. Jill is teaching her children about the birds and the bees. With that said, it is a subject kids need to learn. Preferably from their parents. But some of the folks who have kept up with Jill since she left Counting On, are questioning this. They believe the topic is a little too advanced for Jill and Derick Dillard’s young children.

As you can see in the post below, Jill shared a picture of the cover of the book. She also suggested that it is a good idea to teach your kids about the birds & the bees. That is before someone else does. Jill Duggar Dillard is the mom of Israel, 3, and Sam, 1. This is the age group that many people refer to as the toddler stage.

Jill Teaching Her Toddlers About Origin of Life

The book Jill reads to her kids is: “The Story of Me.”

This is an option for teaching children about the facts of life. Furthermore, it does appear to be a book tailored for young children. “The Story of Me” won the Christian Book Award.  The award is on the front cover. The cover also says, “God’s Design for Sex.”

This publication appears to be a sex-education book for young children. According to In Touch Magazine, the book’s description reads, “It’s never too early to begin giving your child a practical understanding of his or her unique, beautiful body.” It also explains “why God designed it (your body) to be exactly the way it is.” But it was something else the book contained that got people’s attention.

Duggar Family Fans Find Fault In Book’s Teachings

The problem started with some of the other things the book offers. A few sentences, in particular, garnered attention. Starting with: “Why God wants each baby to have a mommy and a daddy.” Along with, “the specialness of being made a boy or a girl.”

There are two ways to look at this. Each baby does have a mommy and also a daddy to begin with. Even if a child has two mommies or two daddies, it does take a man and a woman to create a human life. Even if a baby is conceived in a test tube, scientifically speaking it took a male and a female to create life. The disparaging comments were not coming from this mindset though.

Derick Dillard Views Taught to Kids – Worries Fans of Counting On

The fans who seem to have a problem with this see it differently. They don’t appear to take the science of conception into consideration. In Touch claims, “Of course, it should come as no surprise that Jill and her husband, Derick Dillard, are teaching their sons this way.”

They also refer to Derick Dillard’s social media ramblings which were the origin of Jill and Derick’s demise from Counting On. Some accused Derick Dillard of making some awful transphobic and homophobic remarks regarding several popular stars. This included Jazz Jennings from the show, I am Jazz. 

Derick Dillard is also accused of targeting Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent from Nate & Jeremiah by Design, and the cast of Lost in Transition. He made remarks about the stars on online and his actions caused TLC to sever ties with him.

Duggar Mom and Dad Peeved As Well as Counting On Fans?

Reports indicate that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar were fuming over Derick’s actions. The patriarch and matriarch of the Duggar brood reportedly confronted him about these remarks.

With that said, after fans got a look at the book Jill Duggar is reading her kids, this brought up the old wounds from Dillard’s past internet posts. Teaching kids about the intimacy at such a young age also raised a few eyebrows. But it was the content of that book that got some fans in an uproar.

Jill Duggar Dillard is no stranger to the slamming coming from social media. Just last week she as “slammed” for introducing a recipe for a salad dressing. Fans chastised Jill for that as well. Some fans told her it’s a recipe for a heart attack.

Soaps are an infatuation of mine and reality TV lets me be that fly on the wall when it comes to witnessing all types of behavior, as it never amazes me what people will say and do with the cameras rolling.
