Scandals

Molestation

See main article: Josh Duggar molestation scandal

On May 21, 2015, the magazine InTouch Weekly published an article with the headline «Bombshell Duggar Police Report: Jim Bob Duggar Didn’t Report Son Josh’s Alleged Sex Offenses For More Than a Year». This article included a link to a redacted police report the magazine had obtained through the Freedom of Information Act which gave details of Josh Duggar molesting five underaged girls — including four of his sisters — in 2002 and 2003, when he was around fourteen years old. There was much public outrage over how Jim Bob and Michelle had handled the situation, as many people felt that they should have reported the situation to the police and made sure Josh had received proper counseling for the safety of their other daughters. This scandal eventually led to the cancellation of 19 Kids and Counting.

Jessa and Jill on Fox News’s The Kelly File

On June 3, 2015, Fox News aired an interview with Jim Bob and Michelle about the scandal, which included a preview for a June 5 interview where Jill and Jessa named themselves as two of Josh’s victims.

On May 19, 2017, the identities of the two other Duggar victims were confirmed when Jill, Jessa, Jinger, and Joy filed a lawsuit against InTouch Weekly, Springdale, Arkansas, and Washington County, Arkansas, for breach of privacy. This lawsuit is still ongoing.

Ashley Madison

On July 15, 2015, a group called The Impact Team hacked the database of Avid Life Media. When their demands were not met, they published large caches of data stolen from the website Ashley Madison, which was a service that assisted married people in having affairs. On August 19, 2015, the website Gawker announced that they had discovered records within this data indicating that Josh Duggar had maintained two different paid accounts between February, 2013, and May, 2015. On August 20, 2015, Josh publicly confessed to cheating on his wife, and within the next few days he had checked into a faith-based rehab center in Rockford, IL, where he stayed until March 10, 2016. Since then, Josh has stayed mostly out of the public eye.

Beliefs and Practices

Quiverfull

The «quiverfull» movement, whose primary focus is producing as many children as possible and raising them to enter into government and civil service positions, first formed in 1995. The Duggar family joined this movement at some point in its early years. Their first public connection to the movement was in 2001, when QuiverFull posted an article referencing them as a success story. The family’s original website in 2005 linked to this article but didn’t go any further in depth about the movement. By 2007, any reference to the movement had been removed from their website. The Duggars have not gone on the record discussing this movement.

Institute in Basic Life Principles

14 Children and Pregnant Again features the Duggar family packing up and heading to a homeschool conference in Big Sandy, TX. This conference is one of the biggest gatherings of the Institute in Basic Life Principles’ Advanced Training Institute (their homeschool system), and was the first public connection tying the Duggars to this group. The group lists the following goals on their website:

The Duggars are regularly shown to follow the institute’s practices, including only long skirts and long hair on the women, homeschooling the children, limiting access to television and other modern media, and adhering to strict gender roles at all times.

In addition to the ATI conference in Big Sandy, many of the older Duggar children have been seen attending other IBLP functions such as Journey to the Heart and ALERT Training.

Homeschooling

The Duggars made the decision to homeschool their children when Josh was five years old. In later interviews, they would say that they made this decision because they felt it was «the best way to teach our Christian values». As their oldest children grew old enough to help out, the responsibility of schooling began to be one that Michelle shared with them so that the younger kids could always have someone to help. The Duggars have used a variety of different homeschool curricula over the years, but the Advanced Training Institute is one of the constant presences in their schooling.

Buddy System

At some point prior to 2001 the Duggar family implemented a buddy system, where each older child was paired with a younger child to assist in tasks such as dressing, bathing, feeding, and schooling. By 2009, the family had switched over to buddy teams, where each of the oldest four daughters was assigned 2-4 younger buddies.

Debt Free Living

In the early 90s, Jim Bob and Michelle attended a seminar on living debt-free. They implemented many of the practices suggested in this seminar and made it their goal to pay for everything through cash. By 2001 they had begun teaching these seminars out of their home. As indicated by the earliest versions of the family’s website, the seminar they attended was Jim Sammons’ «Financial Freedom Seminar», which is affiliated with the Institute in Basic Life Principles.

Television Career

Early Specials

The Duggars on 14 Children and Pregnant Again

On September 6, 2004, the first television special about the Duggar family, 14 Children and Pregnant Again aired on Discovery Health Channel. It introduced TV viewers to the Duggar family and their fourteen children, showcasing things like homeschooling, bulk shopping, and the buddy system, before ending with the birth of their fifteenth child, Jackson. In 2006 and 2007 three more specials aired on Discovery Health Channel and TLC. These specials showcased a major vacation in the western US, the construction and completion of the family’s new house, and the births of Johannah and Jennifer.

19 Kids and Counting

On September 29, 2008, TLC premiered the first episode of 17 Kids and Counting, a weekly reality program about the lives of the Duggar family. The show ran for ten seasons before being canceled in 2015. The show changed its title to keep up with the number of children the family had, and was known as 19 Kids and Counting from season four onward. This show covered a number of major family events, including the weddings of Josh, Jill, and Jessa, the births of Jordyn, Josie, Mackynzie, Michael, Marcus, and Israel, and a number of family trips across four continents.

Counting On

On December 13, 2015, TLC aired the first of a three-part series, Jill & Jessa: Counting On. These specials started with having the adult Duggar children and in-laws discuss their reactions to the two scandals that had rocked the family that summer, and then shifted into showing how the family had moved on through the lens of Jill and Jessa, who were the two Duggar daughters who were married at that time. The show changed its title to Counting On beginning with season two, as the focus expanded to include more of the adult Duggar children. Currently in its seventh season, Counting On has covered several major family events, including the weddings of Jinger, Joy, and Joseph, the births of Spurgeon and Henry, and the Dillards’ time as missionaries in Central America.
