If TLC did real pop up facts


Recommended Posts

Mothership

Wouldn't it be wonderful if TLC would truly return to its roots as THE LEARNING CHANNEL and share pop up FACTS during a Duggar show/special.

I'd love to see  "Jill is not a licensed midwife" pop up when she's visiting the clinic in Guatemala...or "The Dillards are currently residing in Antigua Guatemala (insert map)" when they speak about being in Central America... or

"Ben mows lawns for his father in law" pop up when Jessa asks him "how was work?"

I'd quite like some true-to-life sex facts to pop up on screen....yes, I know I'm disgusting.  "Foreplay with Jimbob lasts approximately 45 seconds. Michelle is fine with that because she doesn't

Or "Michelle Duggar won a mother of the year award in *insert year* but we're not sure why, as she doesn't do any actual parenting."

I like this topic. Way more interesting than how many pizzas they eat in a year.

Would love that.  I'd also like a real time ticker of people's comments about the show.  Obviously with time delay to prevent anything illegal or obscene from making it on air.

"The Duggars use X# of paper plates at each meal, thats eleventy paper plates each year in the Tontitown landfill;  we don't even want to do the math for disposable diapers"

When they do those pop ups about # of diapers that the family has gone through I want a break down: Jill: 9087, Jana 11078, Jinger 6540, etc.  Michelle would have a sizable amount from the early years and the time when she's the baby's buddy but I'm betting the older girls give a run for the money.

Jill later volunteered at a midwife clinic to give her experience for ‘the mission field’.

‘I hope to impart some skills and knowledge to people there,’ she grinned.

The program: 

"Jill volunteers at a local midwife clinic to give her experience for the mission field.

‘I hope to impart some skills and knowledge to people there".

The fact sheet: Jill hopes to educate  educated midwives with actual experience working at a midwife clinic.

Five minutes ago, she received minimal certification  that does not qualify her to work as a midwife in many settings because her training  does not meet the international standards of midwife education.

I thought they did a disposable diaper pop up in 17 or 18 KAC

I think they couched it as the number of diapers or diaper changes.  I was wanting to emphasize the impact on the area landfill.

I would love to see subtitled translations as JimBob speaks (and Jill parrots his teachings).

Didn't Jill ask for or get expensive cloth diapers? How easy is it to get disposables in Guatamala? My son  and DIL used cloth. They're not like the old ones with pins. Also, they have a great resale value.

Please, let TLC (the non learning channel) highlight that these people deprive their children of education and opportunity, and that they then trot out these idiot nonuniversities to somehow justify their intellectual abuse of their children.:angry-devil::angry-devil: Out of 19, I am pretty sure there are one or two, or even more, that could do well in a real college.

Jessa doesn't have her GED? Making the fact that she was a Duggar tutor even more ironic...

Michelle stated that Jessa was "over" all of their home schooling records etc. I always found that to be very scary that she doesn't even have her GED and is over the education of the rest of her siblings. I fear for the little Spurge. He has a mother with such limited education and a dad who can't get himself out of the rain.

But, I find the Duggars have done such a horrendous disservice to all of their children with their home schooling attempts. I am in no way against home schooling. I am against the Duggars home schooling. I don't think Michelle was in any way an acceptable teacher and she just passed it off to the older kids as soon as she could.

The GED isn't necessary for anyone graduating from homeschooling, which is something that is constantly pointed out on this site when people attack the Duggars for using GEDs instead of diplomas.

I mean, I know a lot of homeschooled kids who've done as well as or better than me in college. But they were probably homeschooled using legitimate curriculum. And obviously could get decent scores on the SAT.

I mean, not being able to pass the GED? She should have by now. There are probably 13-14 year olds out there that could pass it ffs.

Years ago when the first situation...the reports were released which wasn't fair...

TLC pop up:  "See police reports released by a properly executed FOI request by In Touch Magazine"

Adoption from Guatemala... Adoption from Uganda.... blah blah blah

TLC Pop up:  "There are very specific rules for foreign adoptions.  Currently Guatemala does not allow international adoptions due to past abuses.  Human Trafficking by definition includes the illegal adoption of babies either foreign or domestic".

Edited by Mothership
another pop up came to mind.

Right?  It would be so easy to make this show interesting and watchable BUT TLC would have to throw the Duggars under the bus.  They would have to highlight every lie, mistruth, and evasion.  They would have to highlight the woeful lack of education AND tell the truth on how the Duggars have managed to live upper middleclass lifestyles:  TLC money.

I would like to see some schedule breakdowns.  Let's see what everybody is doing with their day.  How many hours a day are the kids home schooling?  How many hours a day are the older girls cleaning/cooking/child rearing?  How many hours a day are they just sitting around talking to each other.  For example:

Jana.  9 hours a day running the home and taking care of young children.  2 hours a day reading the Bible. 2 hours a day grooming. 1 hour a day eating. 7 hours a day sleeping.  2 hours a day socializing. 1 hour a day sewing.

Michelle. 3 hours a day running the house and taking care of children. 1 hour a day reading the Bible. 1 hour a day on the treadmill. 5 hours a day on the phone setting up speaking engagements. 2 hours a day grooming. 1.5 hours a day eating. 9 hours a day sleeping. 1.5 hours a day taking care of Jim Bob.

To be fair, nobody said she failed it; she may have simply not taken it. An earlier poster mentioned that not all homeschoolers take the GED because they receive a homeschool diploma or some other symbol of completion. I'm not suggesting a Duggar Homeschool Diploma has any merit, but I also don't think it's fair to presume Jessa failed the GED.

Do we know for a fact that all the other kidults have a GED?   I thought on an earlier thread there were questions that anyone other than the oldest boys, Jill and Jana had taken/passed the GED.

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.
