Jill Duggar Broke a MAJOR Family Parenting Rule & Fans Are Shocked!

by at .  Updated at .

There was a time when Jill Duggar was one of the few members of her family was thought to be mostly immune to criticism.

Those were simpler times. Different times.

Indeed, she dutifully followed in her mother's footsteps by marrying young and immediately starting a family with Derick Dillard.

Furthermore, Jill seemed harmless, sweet and was always considered more likable and relatable than either of her parents.

For a while, it looked as though she would continue to enjoy the role of designated fan favorite for many years to come.

But ... then the Josh Duggar sex scandals were exposed, subjecting every member of the family to much greater scrutiny.

And ... then fans really got to know Derick Dillard.

Back in November of 2017, Derick was fired from Counting On after launching a transphobic social media tirade at fellow TLC star Jazz Jennings.

Soon after, Jill quit the show in a misguided gesture of solidarity.

As a result, she's gone from the being one of the most popular Duggars to being exiled alongside her disgraced brother Josh.

But fortunately, here in the digital, 24-hour social media age, fans can still keep up with Jill on social and millions of them do exactly that.

Although, it usually seems like they're primarily interested in ridiculing her or criticizing the manner in which Jill raises her kids.

Yes, Jill's parenting methods and actions often set off some intense debates in the comments section of her Instagram posts.

And by often, we mean pretty much always.

Sometimes, the complaints are foolish, such as the time Jill put a tortilla on her son's head in order to protect him from the sun.

It made for a funny pic. Lighten up, people.

On other occasions, however, fan concerns are a bit more legitimate, such as the time Jill made her kids walk to Chick-Fil-A ...

... MILES from the hotel they were staying in.

But we're guessing most fans - even frequent Duggar critics - won't have much of a problem with Jill's latest parenting revelation.

That doesn't mean they won't be a bit surprised by it, though. The 26-year-old posted the photo below on Instagram this week.

She captioned the image as follows:

"When your #3yearold finds your phone and fills up your photo library with #randomphotos of #peppapig lol #israeldaviddillard."

That's it. What's so shocking, you might be asking, about Jill's kids watching children's television like Peppa Pig?

Well, you see, not unlike most enjoyable pastimes, television and popular culture are things that Jim Bob staunchly opposes.

The Duggar family patriarch expressed his views on the demonic powers of the flat-screen in a 2011 interview.

In it, he described his shock upon turning on the evil television for the first time after what he says was a several-year hiatus:

"We couldn't believe the content on TV we didn't think was appropriate. This is detrimental to our marriage," JB said.

"We prayed about it," Jim Bob reveals.

"We felt we had to pull it out of our house, which we did. And I would say that is one of the best things we have done for our family."

He added that he occasionally allows his children to watch DVDs of TV and movies from the '50s and '60s, but no broadcast TV.

"We do watch DVDs, The Andy Griffith Show," Jim Bob stated. "We are very selective about what we watch."

"We actually don't watch broadcast TV."

So you can imagine JB's chagrin at learning that his impressionable grandchildren are being raised on secular hits as Peppa.

What's next?

Another generation of Duggar girls wearing pants?! Holding hands and dating multiple people before deciding to get hitched?

We shudder to think.
