Former Counting On star Joy-Anna Forsyth gave Duggar fans a peek into her homeschooling routine. She uploaded a couple of snaps to her Instagram stories, so her over one million followers can see what she and her kids are up to. Joy-Anna and her husband, Austin, share three-year-old Gideon and one-year-old Evelyn.
This isn’t the first time that Joy-Anna has told fans about homeschooling her son. She seems to be interested in following in her own parents’ footsteps. Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are strong supporters of homeschooling, so Joy-Anna was homeschooled growing up. Most of Jim Bob and Michelle’s grandkids appear to be learning at home, too. However, Jill and Derick Dillard’s son Israel attends public school.
In a new Instagram story, Joy-Anna shared a photo of Gideon on the floor “doing school.” They are working on the alphabet, shapes, letters, and numbers.
After Joy-Anna shared her most recent homeschooling post, however, some questions were raised about her son’s education.
Joy-Anna Forsyth’s post sparks concerns.
Over on Reddit, Duggar Snarks (or family critics) are discussing her recent Instagram story. Many of them noticed that she misspelled the word “familiar” as “firmiliar.” This sparked a discussion about whether she’s able to teach her kids at home well.
One user writes, “This makes me nervous. You CAN homeschool and give your kids an excellent education. Joy is at a disadvantage, though, because she doesn’t appear to have been educated well herself. There are lots of curriculum options out there, including online programs where the parent is more of a supervisor than a teacher.”
Others don’t think this post alone is an indicator that she will be homeschooling her kids. After all, Gideon would only be in preschool at this point. At that age, he might only go to preschool for half days or a couple of times per week. So, some Duggar Snarks think this is an age-appropriate activity to help him ease into kindergarten in a couple of years.
One user writes, “I died a little when I read firmilar. What she is doing now is developmentally appropriate but Dear God I hope she sends them to either public or private school when they are old enough.”
