Growing Up Duggar
Staff Review: Growing Up Duggar
While readers may not want to take romantic advice from girls who have never been in a romantic relationship, this book provides some insights into the lives of the notorious Duggar clan, famous for their large family of 19 children. Each chapter is divided into various relationships, such as relationships with parents, siblings, guys, culture, and of course, their conservative Christian faith. They are famously frugal, and devoted to their faith and their family. I thought the sections where the girls discussed how Jim Bob and Michelle raise their children were the most fascinating. Each child learns to respect one another, practice unselfish behavior, learns good manners, and apply their real-life experiences to the teachings in their faith. I wish the book would have included more commentary from each Duggar girl individually, rather than writing mostly from a joint perspective. However, fans of the reality show "19 Kids and Counting" will enjoy this book authored by the four eldest Duggar sisters.
