Jessa Duggar Just Gave Us a Super Powerful Parenting Tip
Anyone who has young children knows they are a major challenge. While they’re filled with love and there is nothing more important than them on the planet, they can also be extremely difficult at times. Jessa Duggar recently posted a video of her son on Instagram and reminded us all of something incredibly valuable in parenting.
Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald have three children
Duggar and Seewald were one of the first Duggar couples to wed. The two were married in 2014, and they didn’t waste any time having kids. The couple will celebrate their fifth year of marriage this fall, and they welcomed three children in those five years. They have two older boys, Spurgeon and Henry, and the two recently welcomed their first daughter, Ivy Jane, in May. Duggar had a few problems with her third birth, but all of the children are healthy. Now, she’s only focused on being the best mother she can be. And she recently posted an Instagram video discussing the way she parents her kids.
Duggar recently posted a video reminding people to ‘encourage’ their children’s excitement
Duggar took to Instagram to share a video of her older son, Spurgeon, helping her vacuum the family room. In the video, he’s doing his best to help her clean, though it’s clear he’s struggling a bit to handle such a big appliance. However, Duggar lets him go and decided to film him doing his best to keep their family room clean. “Yes, it may take 5x longer than if I did it myself, but they find it exciting to help out and lend a hand,” she wrote in the caption. “We definitely need to encourage this and not squelch the excitement.” She went on to say how important it is that the kids learn these tasks and are someday able to do them entirely on their own.
Fans loved Duggar’s approach to parenting
When Duggar posted the photo, fans couldn’t agree more. “Keep it up mama you are doing great,” one fan wrote. “Start em [sic] young to care for their home, they carry it to their own later,” another user commented. People went on to tell their own stories about how their kids learned from them or they learned from their parents. People praised Duggar’s patience with her son and found her advice to be very valuable. But Duggar, just like the other members of her family, is still learning the parenting ropes.
Many of the Duggars are new parents
Duggar is one of the most seasoned parents out of any of the Duggar children. Most of them are only just starting to learn the ropes of caring for a child. Duggar has three kids of her own, but her other sisters, Jill, Joy, and Jinger, only have one or two. Everyone knows that learning parenting skills can be tough, but thankfully, all of the Duggars have each other (plus their own parents) to help them get by. It’s clear that Duggar is doing her best to raise her three kids, and fans seem to be supporting her.
