Michelle Duggar‘s kids are hard at work in the kitchen, but the mom to 19 is nowhere to be seen. On social media, the Duggars revealed that they are preparing their Thanksgiving dinner. They shared several photos of all of the kids cooking in the kitchen. In the entire series of pictures, however, Michelle didn’t appear in a single one. So, what’s going on?
In a new post late on Wednesday night, Jim Bob and Michelle shared about their preparations for Thanksgiving. They wrote, “Today it was all hands on deck preparing for our Thanksgiving meal tomorrow! We have some staples that we make every year, like our favorite homemade rolls! (link in bio!) Anyone else doing lots of food prep today? 🥧🦃 Can’t wait to try everything tomorrow with friends and family! Happy Thanksgiving! 🍁🤗”
Michelle Duggar is under fire for leaving the cooking up to the kids.
Now, fans are calling out Michelle for not helping her kids in the kitchen. They don’t like that she seemingly dumped all of the responsibilities on them. In the photos, Johannah, Josie, Jeremiah, Tyler, Claire, and Jennifer can all be seen cooking away.
In the comments section of the post, fans are sharing their thoughts. One writes, “No sign of parents! Guess they have to cook! Kids raising kids in every department.”
Another adds, “All the kids cooking but no Michelle!!” Someone calls the photos “child labor.”
Someone else rants, “Michelle never did anything!! Michelle herself has said after she had her six child she had a breakdown in the laundry room because she couldn’t handle the six kids she already had. She continued to have 13 more. Rewatch the episodes and you will see the older girls doing everything. Michelle would have a baby and once it was done breastfeeding she would pass it off to her daughters. That was the point of the buddy system. Their older daughters were sister moms and cooked, cleaned, took care of the younger kids all while Michelle was busy getting pregnant.”
Other fans argue that Michelle probably supervised and organized to make sure everything got done correctly.
