Some Duggar fans are question if Jill Dillard defers all decision making to her husband Derick. While Counting On fans took huge issue with Jim Bob Duggar being so controlling over Jill and her siblings, they don’t seem to take the same issue with Derick doing it. In fact, they believe it makes sense. And, here’s why.
Duggar fans don’t mind Jill deferring decision making to her husband Derick.
Whether Jill Dillard defers decision making to her husband Derick was a topic of conversation on Reddit yesterday. One Reddit user had a fairly significant amount of things to say on the subject:
I think it’s fairly well established now that Jill will defer to her ‘headship’, which is [Derick.] He grew up in a family where it was perfectly normal and expected that you would take your child to the d**n doctor for even something common like allergies. Everything she does now that doesn’t match up with her family’s beliefs or practices I just attribute to Derek and his comparatively normal upbringing. I’m hopeful for her and her kids that the longer she stays away from her toxic a** family, the more she will adopt normal habits. Like going to the doctor.”
The comment has accumulated over 200 points (equivalent to likes on Facebook on Instagram). Many other Reddit users also chimed in with their thoughts on the topic.
One Reddit user noted they would normally be “grossed out” by the idea of a wife allowing her husband to make decisions on everything. In the case of Jill Dillard, however, this is something Counting On fans and Duggar snacks seem to appreciate.
The individual went on to add that even though they cannot stand Derick they still think he’ll make better decisions than Jill. They think this because he had a more “normal” upbringing then she did.
Why did this topic of conversation come up anyway?
Jill and Derick Dillard recently took Samuel to the doctor. They learned he had a serious allergy to dust. While making changes around the home, Jill Dillard took to Instagram to discuss it. She also seemed to be reaching out to her fans for advice on how to move forward.
It was her decision to take Samuel to the doctor that sparked the original conversation. Duggar fans, however, believe it is unlikely that the plan to go to the doctor was something she thought of. They suspect Derick was the one who set things up.

🐻 Stuffies in the freezer! We recently found out Sam has strong allergies to dust! 😳 Both of the boys love their stuffies…so when the allergist mentioned they could be contributing to collection of dust it made total sense! . . 💦 In addition to being better at washing bedding and vacuuming at least once a week (I know…we still have carpet 😬), the allergist recommended freezing anything that’s tough to wash at least once a month for 48-72 hrs. to hopefully kill the dust mites! I usually bag them up to keep moisture off of them and contain them a little. 🤗 . . Do your kids have favorite stuffies or a lot of them? Do your kids have allergies?
