The Duggar Sons: Are ALL of Them Unemployed?!

We’ve spoken at length about a strange phenomenon happening within the Duggar family these days.

It seems that several of Jim Bob’s children have failed to succeed as adults, despite being born into remarkable affluence and an environment that strongly encourages the acquisition of wealth.

Some say the Duggars have been spoiled by reality TV stardom.

Others claim the Duggars’ homeschooling left them unprepared to be competitive in the real world.

Whatever the case, several of Jim Bob and Michelle’s adult children are struggling to get by.

The good news is, they don’t have to worry about losing their jobs due to the coronavirus recession, as none of them have jobs to lose.

The bad news is … well, pretty much everything else about their lives.

Here’s a look at how Jim Bobs offspring are currently earning their daily bread:

1. The Lost Generation

The children of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have struggled mightily in their adult lives. The Duggars pride themselves on their work ethic, but some of them are barely working … and barely getting by.

2. The Family Business

Obviously, the next generation of Duggars is at least partially supported by earnings from the family’s reality show, but that might not amount to quite as much cash as you would think.

3. War of Words

The ongoing feud between Jim Bob Duggar and Derick Dillard has offered several illuminating insights into how the family operates behind the scenes, many of them having to do with finances.

Derick claims that Jim Bob keeps the money that TLC pays his kids, and doles it out to them only as needed.

5. Daily Degradation

So essentially, Jim Bob’s adult children are grownups who still receive an allowance. No wonder so many of them are said to be unhappy with their current situation.

6. Dad and CEO

Of course, it’s important to note that Jim Bob offers his kids more than just a cash allowance. He also permits the men in the family to take part in his other business ventures.

Duggar Family Offers Homeschool Tips For a Quarantined Nation!

If you’re a fan of the Duggar family, then you’re probably aware that Jim Bob Duggar exercises tight control over the lives and decisions of his children.

The indoctrination campaign begins at a very young age and doesn’t let up until they start families of their own.

This means, of course, that all Duggar children must be homeschooled.

Periodically, fans question the quality of the education that the Duggar children receive under these circumstances.

These days, interest in the Duggar family’s educational practices is at an all-time high, as millions of parents worldwide have found themselves in the unexpected role of homeschool instructor as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

The situation led us to wonder if Jim Bob and Michelle have any helpful tips and tricks for confused parents-turned-teachers.

And so, we went on a deep dive into the Duggars’ homeschool curriculum in hopes of answering that question.

Take a look:

1. The Student Body

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have homeschooled all of their 19 children. And until recently, the curriculum they use for their kids’ education has been mostly kept secret.

2. The Students Become the Teachers

Jim Bob and Michelle are strict adherents of the Institute in Basic Life Principles and its offshoot organization, the Advanced Training Institute International.

3. The Next Level

Basically, the IBLP-ATI is an organization for evangelical fundamentalists who feel the Southern Baptist Church somehow is not enough of a strict and all-encompassing presence in their lives.

4. The Founder

The organization has seen a steep decline in membership in recent years, thanks in large part to numerous sexual assault allegations directed at its founder, Bill Gothard.

5. More of the Same

The Duggars are the IBLP’s most high-profile members, so the revelation that Josh Duggar molested four of his sisters wasn’t exactly great for enrollment levels, either.

6. Getting Them While They’re Young

So many duggars
But still, the Duggars remain staunch advocates of the IBLP, as well as the ATI, which focuses primarily on the “education” and indoctrination of young evangelicals.
