When it comes to dealing with online hate, OutDaughtered stars Adam and Danielle Busby are basically experts. Unfortunately, their daughters are not — and they’ll have to learn. While chatting exclusively with In Touch to promote Coding Critters, the newest screen-free coding toy from Learning Resources, the parents of six opened up about what life is like in the public eye. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy, and it takes some serious work preparing their kids to handle it.
“Hands down, life isn’t fair,” Danielle, 35, told In Touch. “There are people out there who will say what they want, and you may actually not get what you want. As parents, we are here to protect our girls but also to prepare them for the future. Teaching them to know and love God is first, so they can know their identity in Christ. That is something that will never fail them, no matter what the situation.”
The star’s other parenting priorities include “raising [their] kids to know we love them no matter what they will go through [and] letting them fall when they need to fall, because they will learn something from that.” They’re working hard to make sure that each of their six daughters learn all kinds of tough — but important — lessons about life. But the whole “things aren’t always fair” concept does have some limitations in the Busby household. When it comes to making sure each kid has quality time, they try to keep things equal.
“I 100-percent know my heart and my love for all my kids are equal,” Danielle told In Touch. “I may not get around to posting ‘enough’ of something … but since when is love based off of how much we post on social media?” When fans accused her of spending more time with twins Ava and Olivia than the rest of the quints, she shot back, “I feel like people choose to ‘see’ what they want and they base their response off of what they are dealing with in their own life.”
