What if they get porn-y pop-up ads?

This makes me think of those hotels.com commercials. I feel like Josh would be blamed for it and then Captain Obvious would pop up and say "It was the dad!"

Yes, and honestly - you just don't know till you figure it out.  I see people on here all the time saying 'they are adults now, I give them no slack!  They should know things are bad and wrong."     

Just carrying over from the previous thread re: the questions about the Jewish view on abortion if the mother's life is at risk:  In Judaism, the mother's life always comes first until the baby i

Yeah, I need a sheet even in hot weather. I have this irrational belief that my toes will be nibbled by gremlins if they escape the bedding. I blame the fact that I grew up with a cat

What are the Duggars just letting everyone live with them? 

The only real workers in the family, the older girls, are getting married and moving out of the house, the Duggar's need someone to pick up the slack. Plus it's helping these stay-at-home kids actually get out of the house and puts them in a place where they're more likely to meet potential marriage partners than at home.

Watching video like this, though, gives you even more control over the content, except for ads. There would be no chance you would accidentally click past something deemed inappropriate. 

I hope they got one for Sausage Party on DVD. lmao I would love to see that.

I wonder why none of the Duggar kids seem to have done these sorts of arrangements.

Yes, this.  It feels a bit like fostering in Viking times, Medieval times etc, where wealthy families would "swap" kids for such reasons (and as ways to keep loyalty), but you're absolutely right, if it's good enough for other kids to stay with them, why didn't they send one of the daughters to work for another family, pre-marriage, and definitely some of those sons (though was Joe living at the Bateseses?)

The Duggars probably welcome the opportunity to take in others to spread their world view.  It's part of their 'ministry'.  However, they will always shelter their own kids from anyone else's views.  Don't want them to develop their own ideas.

I don't think the Duggar kids feel the need to do something like this. They live in a large house, they have plenty to eat, nice clothes to wear, nice electronics, plenty of visitors/interactions outside their immediate family. We might not be satisfied with the lives they lead but compared to other fundies they have a pretty cushy life. And Jana and John-David aside, they're managing to marry kids of at a somewhat decent clip. 

Total ISB but it wouldn't surprise me if they were too stuck up to go live with other families.

I don't know that we ever confirmed where Joe was living while he was at Crown, he might have been living in the dorms.

Also, the Duggars aren't the only ones who do this- I remember someone (several someones?) going to live with Nancy Campbell and "interning" at Above Rubies. You also have intrafamily situations like Suze staying with Anna and Smuggar and Faith Pennington's sister going to stay with an aunt's family.

if they and I mean Jessa before she was married actually left - she would just sit on the couch  - the others couldn't leave because who would raise the children and we know Jessa only sat /eits on the couch and if she has to work - complains about it 

maybe the duggars are considered "high" in their cult

The boys' room was renovated recently. Instead of the freestanding bunk beds, they built in triple-height bunks. I think we figured they can sleep about 15 in there, so they have unlimited room for boys!

AND I'm pretty sure Jonathan Hartono built them for Jim Bob while HE was living there. 

I think I missed this.  Was it posted somewhere?

I wouldn't be surprised if the  Elijah sleeps in the mouse infested loft they stowed Ben.  

As for Tabitha, I hope she's not on the show because she doesn't want to be filmed and not because they are trying to pretend she doesn't exist.  

The Duggar cousin is probably in the boy's room.

I'm pretty sure he was in the background in the episode where Jill and Derick came back from Central America. I remember seeing a kid sitting on the stairs of their new house who didn't really  look like a Duggar.

It was discussed here, yes. It may have been up to a year ago. It wasn't a show storyline, but it followed the girls' room redo. If you search Jonathan Hartono you'll find it. And I think Lawson might have posted a photo of the room on Instagram while he was visiting the Duggars. There have definitely been photos.

I think its a money issue, too. The Duggars can easily absorb a few more mouths to feed (especially in exchange for work). Most quiverful families are pretty hard up. It would strain their finances, and require a big socioeconomic step down for the Duggar kid.

I think John David has done the closest to the going to stay with another family of any of the Duggars.  He did a tour season driving for the Reiths.  I wonder if there were hopes of a courtship that didn't work out.

I don't think Jim Bob would let any of the women or girls go do that but he's a tad more open with the men.

They don't watch TV, they just watch television shows projected from a laptop?  That is such typical Duggar doublespeak.

I'm not good with images and wouldn't know where to find them, but there have been other shots of the giant projector in the house.  The one I recall had a sermon or church service of some kind playing in the background while the Duggarlings roamed around.  So that's exactly their doublespeak:  "We don't watch TV like heathens; we have a special mounted projector for religious and political shows....the way godly Christians do." ETA: maybe they'd also throw in a "We'll pray for you," as well.

OK, remember projector photo someone posted earlier? This is where it came from.

That's Elijah Kaneshiro's instagram... moment of silence for the confirmed Duggar Trump enthusiasm.

Apparently Elijah is ALSO living with the Duggars. He registered to vote in June from the TTH address. What's going on?

Possible further intrigue...

Could this be the guy Joy is courting? Seems pretty personal-space-sharing to give a non-family-member a haircut, at least by Duggar standards.

No.  These girls need to stop.  They understand nothing about blending or fading or thinning or balance.  Just stop.

I was lurking through his pictures and dang does he get around. He's has pictures with the Duggars, the bates, and a couple of other families. I want to know his purpose.

I know what pic you're talking about but who is Krista's mom/aunt? It's only person there other than the Duggars is Laura, Jana's friend. Where did it say that it's at Krista's family member's house? Thnx!

This popped up on the Duggar Facebook page earlier

with this status:

 Children are a blessing from God!
For years we did not understand that and we missed out on some of those blessings.

Apparently it s from 5 years ago and it's their thoughts on birth control and Gods blessings. Interesting they post this a week after Jingers wedding.

omg I forgot about the hideous little hair headband they put on Josie, but Jimbob if it was so overwhelming why not figure out a non-hormonal Birth control if you felt like it caused you a miscarriage? Then I also guess in the show they waited for the whole "buddy system" to explain how they dont care for their children

Often with celebs, the more they protest their marriage is fine, the sooner the divorce happens.  Probably not true with the Duggars, but I for one do find it believable that their marriage was strained by the events of the past year.  I also do not for one second believe they would ever divorce.  If they were really at a breaking point with their marriage, I think they would just quietly live in separate parts of the TTH, and only be together for public events. 

 

The only way I think we would ever see them divorce would be IF Michelle had some sort of realization that their lifestyle was harmful.  If she suddenly woke up and said, "this is bullshit.  Gothard is Whack".  But until we see pigs fly,  I really doubt we will ever see that happen.

      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.
