Duggar fans know that Jim Bob and Michelle never allowed TV-watching in their home. When the kids grew up they sometimes watched uncut videos of their own show. As adults, Jill and Derrick Dillard don’t watch TV but they do stream entertainment online. And, they allow the kids to watch. This weekend, Jill and her kids enjoyed watching their neighbor’s outdoor movie.
Duggar rules on TV don’t count anymore with streaming available
TV Shows Ace reported in November, Jill “went off to do her makeup, [and] ‘she put on one of the family shows for the boys.'” Then, she mentioned, “Israel came running into the bathroom yelling, ‘Hey Mommy! Mommy! They said The Duggars!!”’ That sent her off on a bit family nostalgia as she and Amy King remembered only watching at other people’s houses.
To this day, Jill Dillard won’t get a TV for their home. The Duggar daughter sticks strongly to her feelings on it. Cheatsheet reported that Jill spoke about it on Instagram. They wrote, “My hubby says he read something about it becoming more common for millennials to not have TVs.” Duggar said that it’s because so much can be accessed from the Internet these days.” And that’s true. It also means mommy and daddy get better control over what the kids see.
They also watched the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on a laptop on Thanksgiving Day.
Jill and the kids sit outside and watch the neighbor’s outdoor movie this weekend
It’s not clear that Jill and the kids got an invite to watch the neighbor’s outdoor movie. They may have just watched from their own garden. In an Instagram Story that Jill shared, she explained how much the kids enjoyed the outdoor movie. They sat out on the grass, and she noted the weather was at least “warm enough.” The cute little Duggar grandkids enjoyed popcorn as they watched. Israel kept pointing at the screen with great delight.
Anyway, it looks like after the movie ended, they went back into their warm and cozy house. The next story showed the computer in the house streaming some cartoons. So, this weekend, the kids got in some screen time by the looks of it. It’s a good time of the year to enjoy family entertainment as Christmas comes along so soon. Watching movies with the family seems as much of a tradition as decorating the tree and baking cookies these days.
Will we see the Dillard boys on Counting On?
Recently, we saw Jill in one episode of Counting On. But, she’s not a regular anymore. Derick either left the show or got fired by TLC. He claims he left of his own accord. For a long time, nobody thought they would return to the Duggar reality TV show. But recently, we reported that fans thought Derick hinted at a possibility. If that happens, maybe we’ll see a bit more of the Dillard boys as they grow up.
