It’s no surprise that Duggar’s ultra-conservative beliefs extend beyond the realm of physical contact and dating. Even romance novels are not permitted on Duggar shelves, and it doesn’t matter how old their kids are or whether or not those romance novels are meant for young adults.
The kids don’t seem to miss it, and why would they? They live in an incredibly sheltered bubble, enforced by their parents.
Due to their modest dress code, there are many places that are simply out of bounds for the Duggar household. One obvious trip they would never be taking is to the beach, seeing as they can't police what everyone else wears while catching a wave or tanning on the seaside.
It sounds unfortunate but it seems like the Duggar family certainly find their own methods of having fun and cutting loose.
Too Cool for Public School
Many people all around the world prefer homeschooling their children, but the Duggars, being more conservative than the average family, believe this is the only way to raise their kids and insists her children do the same for their children.
Not all the girls have followed this proposal and Jill even made the decision to send her child to public school, which meant some serious disapproval from the family.
Speaking in “Soft Words”
"Soft words" sounds exactly like what we'd expect from the Duggar household speaking style. So yes, this means that everyone has to be careful how to speak and what kind of words they use around each other and never responding in anger.
This does sound quite pleasant as we can imagine a rather peaceful household. Though now and again one needs to scream and shout and let it all out! We're only human after all.
A bit of sibling rivalry never really hurt anybody, right? Well as long as you don't factor in the dynamics of a massive family like the Duggars. We suppose it gets hard to keep count on who did what and which sibling you're most annoyed with.
There do seem to be two Duggars that are at constant odds with one another, Jana and Jessa. With Jessa being the younger, she's always challenging her older sister’s authority.
