Jinger Duggar was a reality TV star for most of her life. Now going on 30 years old, she revealed in her book, “Becoming Free Indeed,” some of the cult-like practices that her parents engaged in. While she isn’t blaming her parents, she is pointing some fingers at Bill Gothard, the founder of the Institute in Basic Life Principles (IBLP). Her book talks about how she was raised in an atmosphere of fear. This week, she recalled how terrified she was as a kid.
Jinger Duggar – Was Taught To Follow Rules
It seems as if Josh Duggar’s sister is blaming Bill Gothard for taking in her mom and dad, Jim Bob Duggar, and Michelle. While some folks think that she simply swapped one religion for another, some of her recollections of her childhood seem extreme. In fact, she literally lived her life with a list of rules that could not be broken. These rules included things like I’m not wearing attractive clothes or dating a boy without a chaperone. In fact, when she spoke with Tamron Hall she told the TV host that her childhood was completely filled with fear.
Jinger Duggar claimed that her parents never taught her to think for herself because there were a lot of rules that answered every question that their daughter might have. So she never learned to think for herself. As an adult, she struggles to break free of the restrictive regulations and rules that she grew up under. Fortunately, she married Jeremy Vuolo who actually helped her to see how fearful her life had been. This week, she opened up about one particularly terrifying childhood memory.
