    If all children were raised this way they would be porly educated and afradi of their own shadows. The Duggars are Chrisitan Fundamentalist and part fo the QUiverfull movement. The beliefs are fear and guilt based. You are made to believe every thought you have of the opposite gender is dirty. Obviously the Duggars don't trust their system or Jessa woudln't need to be monitred like a 12 yr old. It fails to teach them some thoughts and feelings are natural part of growing up. You can't shield kids forever. Sooner or later they have to face the real world. The way the Duggar kids are controlled is doing them a disservice..

    t bothers me that Michelle & Jim-Bob had normal high school upbringings...i.e. dating, sports, cheerleading, friends, etc. but the deny all those things to their children. Their children are so sheltered that they cannot even have friends in their community. They have home-school friends that they only see a couple times a year. They have the Bates family that they only see a couple times a year. How sad. And what about the older kids? They are not even courting. Aren't they losing valuable child-bearing/making years if they are expected to have a quiverfull? They cannot go out alone...who will yell"nike" if something inappropriate happens by! They monitor Jessa's texts!! Don't they trust her? Sad.

    Courtship is a horrible mistake. Just look how Josh and Anna's marriage is falling apart ;-)

    I don't think its sad at all. I think its awesome. They are raising their children the way they fell they should be raised. Trying to prevent them from the temptations of this world that can cause your people to make poor decisions. If all children were raised this way the world would be a much better place.
