JIM Bob and Michelle Duggar have some pretty strict rules for their family.

The devout Baptists, and stars of the reality shows 19 Kids and Counting and follow-up Counting On, famously disagree with birth control, saying they want God to determine how big their family gets.

Other rules The Duggar family observe include a strict dress code that usually only permits women to dress modestly and to wear skirts or dresses.

Women are never allowed to show their legs or dress in a revealing manner.

The Duggar children have also been homeschooled and grew up with limited access to entertainment and television.

The family patriarch Jim Bob, 56, and matriarch Michelle, 55, have stuck to these stern rules for their Christian lifestyle.

The couple even practice chaperoned courtship with their kids – inviting themselves on dates to ensure no hanky panky.

But as their children have grown, they have also slowly started rebelling against their parents' conservative ways.

And the greatest insurgency may come from the Duggar's daughters.

Take a look at how the kids are rebelling, from posing in previously "banned" clothing to openly slamming their family show.


JILL Duggar and her husband Derick Dillard have been taking down her family and patriarch Jim Bob for years, often calling out their strict rules and “hypocrisy.”

Derick recently slammed Jim Bob’s “manipulation and lies” after his son Josh was found guilty of child pornography charges, but that was just the latest in a long stream of outspoken moments.

Jill, 30, has remained the most rebellious of the kids ever since she started posting photos in outfits her parents wouldn't like, such as gym shorts, strapless tops, and jeans.

She also pierced her nose and enrolled her eldest son in public school.

Most recently, the family is dealing with the aftermath of Josh being found guilty of both possessing and receiving child pornography, but Jill and Derick's desire to distance themselves from her family started years ago.

In 2014, Jill first slowly started to move away from her conservative family and her strict upbringing after she married her husband Derick.

A major turning point arrived in 2015 when it emerged that Josh molested five underage girls, including Jill.

She and Derick quit their family reality show, Counting On, two years later and have amped up their feud with Jim Bob.

The couple have distanced themselves ever since and Derick exclusively claimed to The Sun that they are now even banned from the family compound when Jim Bob is not there.

The rebellious Duggar has also shocked fans by promoting sex toys and lube on her social media page.

She recently shared a giveaway with fans, revealing that prizes included lubricant, massage candles, and a Sexy Dares book.


Jinger, 28, was one of the first kids to rebel against her parents' strict clothing rules – by daring to venture out in pants.

The girls were all required to wear long skirts or dresses while growing up – but they've increasingly been pictured pushing the boundaries in recent years.

Jinger moved to Los Angeles with her husband Jeremy Vuolo after they spent two years living in Laredo, Texas – and with it came a makeover.

She showed off her tan skin and dyed blonde hair while wearing a short dress during a night out with friends in August 2020.

The next month, Jinger donned short shorts while grabbing lunch with her husband – prompting many more outings in ripped jeans and shorts from then on.

She even  wore tight pants on her 28th birthday trip after the family snubbed her big day. 


While Jana, 32, has chosen to stay single and continues to live with her parents, the Counting On alum seems to finally be defying her parents’ strict ways, including wearing tight pants and revealing clothing.

And last August, Jana really busted out when she took a trip to Sin City!

The reality star took to Instagram to share two photos while on her trip to Las Vegas.

One photo featured the daughter smiling in black pants and a matching top, while Jana gave fans a side profile of outfit number two in the following snap.

The second ensemble included beige slacks, a black top and sandals.

Jana's Las Vegas adventure came shortly after she changed her look and debuted her stunning shorter, lighter hair that had subtle highlights at the ends.

While revealing her new look in an Instagram post in August, she wrote: "Something new happened! #blonde #balayage #newhair #hairtransformation."


Joy-Anna Duggar was raised under Jim Bob Duggar's strict rules but she's raising her daughter Evy, 1, her own way, allowing her to play with makeup — a major no-no in Duggarland.

The 24-year-old shared a video of her daughter sitting in the sink playing with her makeup.

She captioned the post: "Good morning. Evelyn putting her makeup on with mama."

The tiny tot sat in the sink with a brush in her hand, waving it in front of her face.

"You putting your makeup on?" Joy-Anna asked, to which Evelyn responded: "Yes."

Joy-Anna cooed: "Oh you're so pretty."

Although Joy-Anna strays occasionally from Jim Bob's rules, she does many things by the book.

Her children, Gideon, three, and Evelyn, are both home schooled just as she was.


Rebel cousin Amy Duggar shared a throwback photo just this week to prove that she’s been defying Jim Bob’s strict dress code for years now.

Amy, 35, showed off her bare shoulders and legs in the sexy snap as she’s worked to distance herself from some of her family members and their rules over the last decade.

Amy has been vocal about her feelings regarding her aunt and uncle's strict Christian lifestyle and the expectations they set for the rest of the family.

In recent months, she's ditched many of her relatives in the wake of her cousin Josh's arrest, and subsequent guilty verdict, on child pornography charges.

After Josh's sentencing, Amy took to Twitter to slam Jim Bob and Michelle following their statement claiming that they’ll “always love” their son.

In a Twitter post, the 35-year-old wrote: “Real therapy. Not just thoughts and prayers.

“Don’t get me wrong I definitely believe in the power of prayer.

“But I also believe in putting in the work towards your mental health and talking to a skilled professional counselor.”

Josh Duggar Aftermath

AFTER Josh Duggar was convicted of child pornography charges, the rest of the family seemingly shared a fractured Christmas, with Jinger and Jill spending the holiday away from their siblings.

Meanwhile, Jana shared a series of loving videos on Instagram of herself, James, Jessa and Joy-Anna celebrating the holiday with their families at their Tonitown, Arkansas home.

In the videos, the extended family members unwrap and enjoy their Christmas gifts, gather around the piano for a family sing-a-long, and enjoy a holiday feast.

Everyone was all-smiles, seemingly trying to put the drama from the past few months behind them, following the oldest Duggar sibling, Josh, 33, being found guilty for child pornography charges.

Josh was found guilty in December after a nearly two-week-long trial and faces 20 years in prison for each count. 

Jinger and her husband, Jeremy Vuolo, gave a joint statement following the verdict saying: "We are thankful to God for exposing Josh’s actions and to a legal system committed to protecting the innocent and punishing the guilty in this case.

"We are grateful for justice. We are praying for further justice, vindication, protection, and healing for all those who have been wronged."
