Jill Duggar promotes children’s book about avoiding porn

Jill Duggar is already teaching her three- and five-year-old sons about porn — and how to avoid it. 

On Sunday, the 29-year-old took to Instagram to share a photo of her copy of ‘Good Pictures Bad Pictures Jr.,’ which she said ‘helps parents be proactive in discussing porn/”bad pictures” with their kids.

The post may have come as a surprise to some fans given her sons’ young ages and Jill’s super-strict background, but Jill’s parents were always fairly proactive in policing sexualized images around their kids — and were openly disappointed when their oldest son, sex pest Josh, admitted to a pornography addiction in 2015.

The book, written by Kristen A. Jenson and illustrated by Debbie Fox, is aimed at kids ages three to six and uses ‘gentle, age-appropriate messages’ to teach kids to ‘Turn, Run & Tell when they are accidentally exposed to inappropriate content.’

It’s well-reviewed by Christian readers, evangelist Josh McDowell, and the executive director of the National Center on Sexual Exploitation, an anti-pornography organization.

Inside, it explains that ‘good pictures are safe to look at’ but ‘bad pictures are not safe to look at’ because they are like ‘picture poison for your brain.’

‘Looking at them is dangerous for a growing child,’ it says.

‘Sometimes kids see bad pictures by accident,’ reads another page, showing a shocked little girl looking at a phone screen. ‘But even if you see a bad picture, that doesn’t make you a bad kid.

‘If you ever see a bad picture, video, or cartoon of people with no clothes on, here’s what to do to stay safe: Turn, run, tell.’ 

Jill said she ‘can’t wait to read [it] with the boys’ she shares with husband Derick Dillard, and stressed that it was not a sponsored post.

No defrauding here! Jill grew up in a home with strict modesty standards, where girls were expected to keep most of their skin covered

Jill grew up in a home with strict modesty standards, where girls were expected to keep most of their skin covered — including the smallest ones. 

In one 19 Kids and Counting episode, dad Jim Bob told his daughter Jennifer, who was four or five at the time, that she had to change because her above-the-knee Hello Kitty dress — worn with leggings — was too short.

The Duggars avoided the beach, since there was too much of a risk that the boys would see immodestly-dressed girls and women.

The family even had a code word, Nike, to signal to the boys to look down at their sneakers when a woman wearing revealing clothing walked by. 

The girls, in particular, were responsible for protecting the boys from seeing anything too revealing or ‘defrauding.’ In another Duggar TV special, Joy Anna, then about five years old herself, covered the TV so her brothers couldn’t see the immodestly-dressed woman on the screen.

Oh no, we see elbows! The family even had a code word, Nike, to signal to the boys to look down at their sneakers when a woman wearing revealing clothing walked by

Ooh-la-la! But Jill has broken away from some of the stricter rules, buying modest bathing suits and even planning a beach trip this summer, where she played in the pool with her boys

Very practical: Like most of the Duggar girls, if Jill's sister Jessa goes swimming, it's in a T-shirt and pants or a skirt

Her grandmother, Grandma Duggar, told the camera that she’d been trained to do so.

Though Jill has distanced herself from some of her parents’ strictest teachings — she wears pants and shorts and even goes to the beach in special modest swimwear — old habits clearly die hard, and she is also teaching her young sons to avoid the ‘picture poison’ of ‘bad pictures.’

While Jill’s use of the word ‘porn’ in an Instagram post may have been a shock for some, the former Counting On star has certainly emerged as the most vocal member of her family when it comes to sex, and this isn’t even the first time she’s broached the subject with her kids. 

Last November, Jill promoted a book called ‘The Story of Me,’ part of the God’s Design for Sex series, which she said ‘helps you teach your kids about sex from a biblical perspective at appropriate ages!’

The book, which was published in 2017, is written by husband and wife duo Stan and Brenna Jones. Stan, a provost and professor of psychology at Wheaton College, and Brenna, who has graduate training in biblical and theological studies, aim to tackle sexuality from a biblical perspective.

‘Designed for ages 3-5, and using age-appropriate language and illustrations, this book explains to young children the marvelous body God gave them,’ the description reads.

‘It’s never too early to begin giving your child a practical understanding of his or her unique, beautiful body and why God designed it to be exactly the way it is,’ reads the back of the book.

The book explains ‘God’s love and the goodness of all He has made, ‘the nurturing family as God’s context for love,’ and ‘proper names for private body parts.’

It also takes an anti-LGBTQ stance with ‘why God wants each baby to have both a mommy and a daddy’ and ‘the specialness of being made a boy or a girl.’

The book, which is the first in a series, also teaches about the difference between good touch and bad touch. 

The difference between good and bad touch is no doubt something that Jill makes sure her kids know, given her own traumatic history.

Disturbing: When she was a child, her older brother Josh, then a teenager, molested Jill, Jessa, and two other female siblings, as well as a female neighbor

When she was a child, her older brother Josh, then a teenager, molested Jill, Jessa, and two other female siblings, as well as a female neighbor.

Police reports have revealed that sex pest Josh touched the chests and genitalia of several of his sisters, some while they were sleeping and others while they were awake.

After the scandalous behavior made headlines in 2015, Jill and Jessa came forward to confirm that they were two of his victims.

Shortly after the news broke, Josh was discovered to have an account on the adultery website Ashley Madison, and he publicly admitted to a pornography addiction.

‘I have been the biggest hypocrite ever. While espousing faith and family values, I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the internet and this became a secret addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife,’ he wrote in the publicly-posted apology — which was later edited to remove the reference to porn.

Despite Josh’s past, he appears to still be welcomed into their parents’ house with open arms, while Jill’s access has been restricted since she has started to depart from some of her family’s teachings — a troubling juxtaposition that doesn’t sit well with many fans, who have repeatedly wondered why Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar so readily embrace their daughter’s abuser but not their daughter.
