Aren't both families self-supporting? Not sure why they'd participate in a TLC circus if money isn't a factor.

I'm pretty sure Vine Valley is a red flag that there is something going on with Rick. The family just seems to enable his insanity.
Camp Arndt is a veritable quiver full of Red Flags.
Other than Cathy's admirably consistent home frosting tip kit hair job, there's nothing the Arndts do that doesn't seem uncomfortable, unnerving, or outright disturbing on some level.
On the teacher meet & greet days, I used to introduce myself to the teachers and apologize in advance for them having to attempt to educate my kids and keep them from killing themselves. Yes, I liked when they were someone else's problem for 6-7 hours a day. What I DID NOT LIKE was the teachers telling me to "instill the importance of education" in my children. There's a helluva lot more to education than sitting in a classroom. If the teachers could not entice my children in the classroom, that was totally not my problem. I had many go-rounds with teachers and administrators over this. Kids would ace the standardized tests but be flunking the classroom.
I have friends who are teachers and my MIL is a retired teacher...most of them are looking for a way out of education. My SIL is finishing a Master's in something so he can also avoid attempting to teach algebra to a bunch of kids who don't give a shit.
In my youngest's high school, I doubt there was any serious learning going on, it was more like being a zookeeper and practicing crowd control. He dropped out 1/2 way through 10th grade. None of them graduated from HS, yet they've all excelled in college.

It’s true that public school doesn’t automatically mean the kids will pick up any liberal beliefs, but they should learn how to write a proper sentence and interact with people outside of their family circle. That’s a big deal for a kid who would otherwise only interact with cousins and likeminded family friends. This is still Arkansas, the teachers and other students/families likely still lean conservative but they’ll at least know that their family isn’t the end all be all.
Exactly. It’s also why Jinger and Jeremy , other than sheer pretentiousness, are more likely to send their children to a fancy private Christian school.
The curriculum in Arkansas Schools, reflects the communities, which clearly are on the conservative side. California school curriculum is not that.
Israel will hopefully receive a great education and make lots of friends and expand his world view. They seem like a family who will really benefit from the increased opportunities. They look so happy and proud in the video!
Yeah don't stick frozen taters up thereQuote
This comes as an increasing number of hemorrhoid sufferers have reportedly taken to the internet to seek alternative solutions to their problem instead of consulting doctors.
Now, it has emerged that an altogether unusual solution is being touted online: that inserting frozen potatoes into your anus for 30 minutes is the answer.
Per the Metro, Dr. Diana Gall, of leading online medical service Doctor-4-U, said: "Piles can be an irritating condition and sufferers are sometimes too embarrassed to seek professional helping, turning to old wives' tales instead."
The doctor continued: "There is no medical evidence that putting frozen potatoes inside the anus can help cure piles, so I would urge caution to anyone thinking of doing it.
