Michelle Duggar on Teaching Young Adults About Modesty December 7, 2012
Jim Bob and I have always talked openly with the kids about modesty and about my missteps as a young lady. It’s important to teach them so they can learn from our experiences. When I was a teenager, I had no clue as to what men thought. My focus was just on drawing attention. I always wanted my girlfriends to think I had the cute outfit and the pretty hair. It was all about impressing my friends and not really realizing that there is a responsibility involved with that. Jim Bob is very open about how men see things and what goes on in their minds. He explains the challenges from a male perspective so the kids understand both sides of things.
