Jill Duggar Accused of Neglecting “Sickly” Sons
About once a week Jill Duggar’s parenting is criticized by concern-trolling mom-shamers who are apparently under the impression that Jill not only puts her children’s lives at risk on a regular basis, but also enjoys flaunting her abuse on social media.
Now to be fair, Jill make does some pretty questionable decisions as a mom.
Take, for example, the time she decided to put a tortilla on her son’s head in lieu of using sunblock.
Or the time she and her two young children walked two miles in sweltering heat to eat at Chick-Fil-A.
Clearly, when the weather gets hot, Jill just freaks out and makes a beeline for the nearest familiar food item.
It’s weird, to be sure, but it’s not abusive.
However, there are those who feel that Jill’s mistreatment of her children goes beyond her bizarre fixation with combining UV rays and carbs in interesting ways.
In fact, they believe she’s downright abusive to her two young sons:
That’s a photo of Jill alongside her boys — 3-year-old Israel and 11-month-old Samuel.
Apparently, fans think Jill’s kids have fully committed themselves to the Boo Radley life — spending their days hiding from the sun and the harsh realities of the outside world, and their nights hiding treats for the neighborhood kids in the knotholes of nearby trees.
Okay, that may be a bit of an exaggeration, but judging by the comments, fans really do believe that Jill’s kids are spending much too much time indoors and are not receiving proper nutrition:
“Am I the only one who thinks these children look malnourished? It’s like they’ve never seen the sun,” commented one “concerned” follower.
“You’re definitely not the only one. Israel is so pale,” remarked another.
“Not the only one, they don’t look malnourished but so pale!” a third chimed in.
“No one is saying let them get sunburnt but if they spend time outdoors playing with sunscreen on they will have a nice healthy color.
“Babies are usually chubby even with thin parents, this one is quite skinny where Israel was nice & chubby.”
You get the idea.
Her followers believe Jill is destroying her kids’ health, and they’re the only ones who can do something about it.
The Duggars pride themselves on their outdoorsiness, so we’re sure Izzy and Sam are getting plenty of sun.
As for the malnutrition complaint, worried fans might find that their time is better spent petitioning Chick-Fil-A to add a couple non-deep-fried options to the menu.
Just kidding, Jill!
