The parent police are on duty! Jill Duggar faced backlash ~yet again~ after posting a new photo of her in-laws putting together a toy airplane for her kids via Instagram on August 20. One fan called out the Counting On star’s husband, Derick Dillard, for not lending a helping hand in the comment section, prompting others to share their thoughts on the matter.
“Enjoying our backyard water play while Mima & Bawpaw put together an airplane for the boys,” the 28-year-old captioned her latest snap, which sparked a heated debate.
“Why exactly are you getting your in-laws to do this? They should be spending time with the grand babies while Derrick lifts a finger for a change,” one of Jill’s followers replied. “Honestly, Derick and grandpa I could understand. Why make poor Mima strain herself? She’s only just in remission,” the commenter continued. “We NEVER see Derrick doing anything around the house. And when he does every fortnight or so, Jill is immediately bragging that he contributed, AS HE SHOULD.”
However, other fans rushed to the TLC couple’s defense. “Seriously, grandparents LOVE doing this kind of thing! Both parents do enough for their kids, nice break for them,” one wrote.
Another added, “Are you kidding me? When I was little my grandparents did the exact same thing. They Were SO excited about buying for us, that they HAD to be the ones to put it together.”
Jill is no stranger to criticism online, as she was previously blasted by parent-shamers in July while giving a tour of her new four bedroom, two bathroom abode shared with Derick. While watching the video shared on her YouTube page, some fans took notice that their two boys, Israel and Samuel, were sharing a room — which happened to be the smallest in the place.
“[The] house is cute, but you’d think [if] you have enough money to build your home from [the] ground up, you could give your children a bigger room,” one fan commented. “I got claustrophobic just looking at their room,” another wrote.
Clearly, you can’t win ’em all!
