On her Instagram stories, Jill Duggar Dillard shared a new quote with her followers. Because of this, fans are starting to wonder why exactly Jill shared the post.
An account on Instagram shared a quote, which was then shared by Jill. The quote reads,
“You cannot expect to have a close relationship with a teenager who, after all, is still the same person as the two-year-old you stuck crying into bed, the three-year-old you spanked and shoved aside, the four-year-old you wouldn’t listen to, the five-year-old you never shared beauty with, the six-year-old you found boring, or you ‘trained’ never to butt in, but never gave time to make a cosy and beautiful background out of which you could talk to him or her. . . . ”
“[G]reat moments of trust and confidence do not spring out of concrete. They need a long time of being planted, fertilized, weeded, watered, warmed by sun and cared for lovingly before they become mature ‘plants’–plants of understanding communication and loving relationship. If you never have time to enhance moments together by making some preparaton for beauty as well as for meeting necessities you are apt to miss altogether the spontaneous response and opening up of the personality which this would bring.”
Now, Duggar fans are starting to wonder if this quote is in reference to Jill’s childhood. They think that she might not have had a good relationship with her parents growing up. It also shows that she is trying a different approach to parenting her own kids.
Jill Duggar’s childhood
Duggar fans are familiar with how the kids were raised. The family is very Christian and very conservative. So, this means that the kids have to adhere to pretty strict rules. For instance, they aren’t allowed to dance. The girls aren’t allowed to wear pants, only dresses or skirts.
Something else that’s questioned about how the kids were raised is their relationships with their parents. With 19 kids in the family, fans assume that Jim Bob and Michelle couldn’t be very close with each of their kids.
Now, things are rocky between Jill and her parents. For example, she isn’t allowed at the Duggar home without permission from her dad. But, this isn’t to say that Jill had a miserable childhood. Now, it seems that there are things she might not agree with. She certainly appears to be doing things a little bit differently than her parents did. What fans know about her current relationship with her parents and her childhood makes people wonder about the post she recently shared.
