It looks like Jim Bob Duggar and his wife, Michelle Duggar, have found themselves in a parenting controversy!

The former 19 Kids and Counting stars are under fire for sharing this photo of their young children riding their bikes without helmets — one even went so far as to comment on the dangers of pedaling in flip-flops.

“Flip-flops are for the beach, they should not be worn to ride bikes. And actually, they are bad for your feet when worn for long periods,” one user wrote.

“Looks great! Looks like they forgot their helmets though,” another quipped.

However, most of their fans saw nothing wrong with the photo and reminisced about the times they rode without helmets as kids.

“This looks a lot safer than the many kids being allowed to roam the streets and spend hours a day on the internet doing who knows what, and conversing with strangers!” said one.
