Anna Duggar has taken on a lot of responsibility on her own to care for her four children as she waits for her husband, Josh to return back home again. There is a lot of stress, strain and weight upon her shoulders raising the children on her own. She is lucky, in one way Anna does have a lot of family members around to help her with advice, additional care for her children, relieving her when the stress becomes overwhelming as well as providing her with a little down time to attend to her own personal needs. Even though her plate is heaping with responsibilities for her family, she has also taken on an additional task of homeschooling her school-age children.
Anna participated in an online Christian college program dealing with early childhood education soon after graduating high school. There are lots of parents these days schooling their children at home without any training at all. Anna, on the other hand has a slight advantage since she took an education course regarding home schooling. She isn’t certified as a teacher, but the training she received will make her progress teaching her children a little easier. This is a journey she is very passionate about and has received much advice from her own mother, her mother-in-law as well as many other women who have also homeschooled their children. There is a great amount of resources she can access along with other parents to help her achieve her goals to provide her children with a good education.
While Anna and her children are currently residing with Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar she isn’t entirely alone and has help whenever she feels it is needed or necessary. As Anna home schools her children that are old enough to begin classes, Michelle is still home schooling the younger children in her house and it is possible that Michelle and Anna are working together to provide all the young ones with the lessons they need daily.
News broke out a while ago that there was a good chance that Anna may be pregnant with a fifth child. Since the news hit the airways there hasn’t been any official statements made by either Anna or any other family member to date. The news of her possible pregnancy was believed to be leaked by a family source, which has still remained nameless. Anna has been avoiding talking in public, avoids using social media as much as possible and periodically posts a few tidbits onto the family blog to keep fans updated since many are quite concerned for her welfare, feelings and look forward to hearing more about her children.
When Anna appeared on the show “Jill & Jessa: Counting On” she made a point to share her feelings about her marriage. She revealed to viewers that; “I know that there are those who feel I have every right to walk away from this marriage, and I respect other people’s views but in my heart, when I got married, I vowed to God first and then to Joshua, ‘for better or worse, ’till death do we part.” Unfortunately not all fans or people in the world have the same views Anna feels is right for her and her family. Hearing what others says can be rewarding because all comments are free advice and thoughts that she can consider. In the end the decision of what she should do, how she feels and what she believes is the best for her and her family remains in her hands regardless of what others say and feel should be the right path for her to follow.
The “Jill & Jessa: Counting On” television special views spiked the charts when the three-part series aired back in December. Public interest in the Duggar family and the Duggar girls and their children have increased tremendously and fans are looking forward to hearing the news when the show will return to television again. The news of Anna’s pregnancy increased interest in her and everyone else that was previously featured on the show. Many are looking forward to seeing the girls again and are commenting on adding more of their siblings into future shows as they are produced.
TLC hasn’t kept it a secret that there isn’t something in the works as they have been seen filming the girls around Arkansas. What has been kept quiet is when a new show or if additional episodes of the “Jill & Jessa: Counting On” series will continue and actually air again. The first three specials ranked high in ratings and has placed a huge public interest back on the Duggar family. Are you all looking forward to seeing the family back on television once again?
