JOY-ANNA Duggar was raised under Jim Bob Duggar’s strict rules, but she is raising her daughter Evie, 1 year old, in her own way, letting her play with makeup – a major ban in Duggarland.
The Duggar children grew up in a strict Christian family, maintaining standards of humility and avoiding secular pleasures.
Joy-Anna shared a video of her daughter sitting in the sink playing with her makeup.
She signed the message: “Good morning.
“Evelyn is painting with her mother.”
The tiny little girl sat in the sink, brush in hand, waving it in front of her face.
“Do you wear makeup?” Joy-Anna asked, to which Evelyn replied, “Yes.”
Joy-Anna cooed, “Oh, you’re so beautiful.”
Makeup is one of the many prohibitions in the Jim Bob and Michelle home, where girls adhere to standards of modesty, including covering the shoulders and knees.
SOCIAL MEDIA TIME OUT
She also talked about what is happening to her and what are her plans for the coming year.
Explaining her recent absence from social media, Joy-Anna said, “Some of you guys have checked me in the past when I don’t show up on Instagram for a couple of days, so I wanted to let you know Austin, and I decided that in the new year we want to reorient, how to reorient many things.
“And so I decided that in January I would give up social media, films and just find time to focus again on my family and spend time with my children.
“I am very happy about this, and I know that this will kind of set the tone for the whole year, and I want to start the new year right.”
It is not clear what prompted the decision to make changes.
Although Joy-Anna sometimes deviates from Jim Bob’s rules, she does a lot by the rules.
Her children, 3-year-old Gideon, and Evelyn, like her, are homeschooled.
WORK IN SCHOOL
She recently gave fans a peek into one of their home lessons, showcasing a new skill that Gideon has learned.
Joy-Anna captured Gideon reading the alphabet.
She signed the video: “At school! We usually read the alphabet, name our numbers, shapes and colors.
“Nothing special, just introduce them to it!”
Another story showed her older child learning his forms, which Joy-Anna wrote: “Gideon learned his forms very quickly. She is still fighting the others. “
Her latest post also showed her practicing counting with Evie.
Most Duggar families homeschool their children.
Rebel Jill Duggar, however, took a huge leap forward and forged her own path.
Her son Israel goes to public school.
She also occasionally drinks alcohol, wears pants, shorts and T-shirts, and does other things that her father usually disapproves of.
Jill has spoken openly about her difficult relationship with Jim Bob and Michelle in recent years.
