Jill Duggar Dillard is used to people giving her a hard time for the things that she does. Now, a new picture that Jill Dillard posted has a lot of fans upset. Jill is a proud mom who is always posting pictures of her son, Israel. Of course, fans usually love seeing the pictures of her son, but a recent photo that Jill posted has people going crazy. This picture was shared on the Duggar Family Official Facebook page. What was meant to be just a cute picture has made people go crazy about their thoughts on the Duggars.
The thing is that Israel Dillard is just 1-year-old. In most states, you need to be two before you are moved to a front-facing car seat like this for safety reasons. Fans are going a bit crazy that Jill and Derick Dillard are not keeping their son safe by having him in the car seat this way. There is a post from Jennifer Koegler that already has over 100 replies. Here is what she had to say about the way Jill has her son in the car seat.
“Sorry I’m a car seat nazi. In Nj you must rear face until 2. It’s proven that is much safer and after a family friends 1 year broke his neck while forward facing i like to make people aware. Yeah it’s their kid, their business but you never know if a simple comment would make a difference! Some people just don’t know.”
There are a lot of replies on this post, and some fans are defending Derick and Jill Dillard. The post was supposed to be about the Dillard family returning to Arkansas, and instead it changed to a post where everyone is bashing Jill Duggar Dillard’s parenting skills. Of course, that was not what this post was meant for at all.
The website Driving Laws said that in Arkansas, your child has to be in a rear-facing car seat until they are one, but after that they can be turned around. If this is the case, Jill and Derick Dillard are just fine regardless of what people think about what they are doing. It is obvious that Israel is a big boy and meets the weight requirements. Jill Duggar Dillard has been around her fair share of siblings and seems to know what she is doing as a mom.
When it comes to the Duggars, they are used to dealing with a lot of people sharing their opinions. They have been through several scandals over the years. Jill and Derick must not care what people have to say because even after they got criticized for one picture of Israel this way, they then posted another one of him in his car seat as well.
Also, the new season of Counting On will be starting later this month. This new season will be about Jinger Duggar and her new relationship, but you will also get to see Jill and Derick Dillard. They are talking about having another child, and Jessa and Ben Seewald are talking about adopting a baby. It should be a great season of the show and fans can’t wait to see the Duggars on television once again. It looks like the family has moved on from the Josh Duggar scandal and is doing great. Josh is now back home with them again as well, but it doesn’t sound like he will be on the show.
Are you shocked to see how upset people are that Jill and Derick Dillard have Israel in a front facing car seat? Do you think that they are putting their son’s life at risk? Sound off in the comments section below on your thoughts, and don’t miss Jill and Derick on Counting On when it returns to TLC later this month.
