The funny thing about growing up on television is that the whole world gets to see the good the bad and the ugly. And the really funny thing about growing up Fundamentalist Christian on television is people that disagree with your family's beliefs get to blame your hormones and moods for you being at odds with what's going on with your family.
All of a sudden the talk is of Jana and Jinger. Jana is depressed and Jinger is cranky. We didn't see Jana in very many episodes for awhile and Jinger used to be all bubbly and cute when she was a pre-teen and now that she's in her mid-teens she's more subdued. But of course the detractors don't blame her age and hormones they immediately latch on to the fact that she must be bored and ready to bolt at any moment and just wants to be done with her entire family's lifestyle.
I'll throw one more thing out there. Production of this show takes time. It's been noted that they can do takes over and over--getting out of cars again and again. Standing around to film something more than once. Waiting in line to do the interview portions. And you wonder why every once in awhile in a 30 minute TV show you get a film clip of a teenager looking bored??
I also clearly remember one show where they had to get up early and Michelle was sneaking out of the girl's room and wouldn't let the camera go in because the girls weren't ready. And she made it clear "you know how girls are if their hair isn't just so." That right there is probably another reason why some of the older girls avoid camera shots on certain days--OR TIMES OF THE MONTH?? Seriously, would you want to be front and center on camera with a giant zit on your face?
There are so many obvious things going on in life that Duggar-detractors avoid looking at--it would be nice if they'd realize they are a real family with normal issues that have nothing whatsoever to do with their religion.
