Michelle Duggar’s Parenting Methods Have Become a Frightening Cycle

When you really think about it, or even if you briefly consider it for .02 seconds, it’s pretty insane that Michelle Duggar is mother to 19 kids. Like, it’s been proven time and time again that she wasn’t the most well-equipped to run a household, and is, hmm, maybe a little less than qualified to give out parenting lessons. Like not for anything, but that would require actually being an active parent. So it’s scary to see the eldest Duggar sisters try to mimic Michelle when it comes to bringing up their children. And at this rate, it’s going to become a generational problem.

Consider all the Duggar daughters that are already moms: Jill, Jessa, Jinger, Joy-Anna, and most importantly, Jana, the person who actually raised the children on the compound and yet doesn’t have any of her own children yet. Despite Jana’s best efforts, though, the girls are becoming little Mini-Michelles in the same way that the boys are turning into Jim Bob clones.

And true, there are some habits that are admittedly partially passed down because of the parents love of the Gothard Principle, yet the Cult of Duggar definitely has some precarious teachings of its own. And Michelle, as the Mother Superior, is passing down some bad behaviors from generation to generation.
