      Michelle being the dominate parent would explain why all the kids aside from the 4 oldest girls, seem to have little to no relationship with her.  The lost girls have no desire to be near her and you don't see any of the older kids gushing over MEchelle, just Jana, Jill, Jessa & Jinger, the others all seem a bit closer with JB.  I think Josh, JD & Joe got a lot of time with JB, Si too, but Si was always such a round peg in a square world  (speaking as a round peg in a square world) so it was an awkward relationship.  All of them, from Joy to Jordyn were raised by their siblings, until Jinger & Joy moved out, now nannies/tutors/wolves are essentially raising them.  You never see, Joy or SI making mushy, I love you posts, to their parents on birthdays or Mothers/Fathers Day like we do the older girls. they don't say much of anything really, but still post other things.  You can see how Jinger loves her mama, and Jessa and Jana and Jill always seem to make time for it, but Joy is no where to be found, she's to busy playing in the dirt with her husband. 

      I noticed this as well. Have you noticed that Jill is visibly closer to her *gasp* (pants-wearing and Contemporary Southern Baptist) mother-in-law rather than Michelle?

      Oh! Another thing I found really interesting in the video was that Michelle says she actually coaches her children to say as little as possible when a microphone is put in their face. It explains a lot of the TH's to me a lot better now where they'd all just let Jill talk while they smiled at her or similar.

      Too bad JB never got the memo.

      @lumpentheologie, I do think that his sons education and career will be a higher pririty for Jeremy than his daughters. John Piper, whom Jeremy idolized, is wildly misogynistic about women's career choices and there being even the slightest chance in hell that they will have authority over men. He foams at the mouth about women being engineers, police officers, city planners. So if Felicity does take college classes, I see her bring steered into elementary education or something like that.

       I was really hoping she was going to explain her ideas on why she had her daughters dress modestly (skirts) too once she got to the point, but unfortunately she never managed to go back to talking about anyone but herself. I personally didn't think she was shading anybody and JB really wanted to stress he never asked or expected her to dress in skirts only. But if you want a little Duggar shade, I got a video for you. You'll have to make a free month's Embassy Media account, but Jim Bob actually references how his daughters now have to listen to their husband over him. 

      Michelle's fanatic statements, quoting "weareth not which pertaineth to a man", and revealing how she felt led against her husband's wishes to wear skirts said enough for me. JB mentioned that in some activities, more modesty is actually required and said this is why their kids wear skirts over their snowsuits. JB was quick to shut Michelle down when she was going on about how "the leader will have to give an account of how they led!".

      JB wanted to shut it down because he is the Duggar PR Machine and does not want the tabloids to start talking about it. Also, JB wanted the pants-wearers in the audience to not feel upset. JB caught Michelle veering off the brief "personal conviction" statement and had to shut it down fast by stopping Michelle mid-sentence with, "Look. We don't want y'all to change your clothing.".
