“This little boy seems like he would have an interest in a STEM field and it’s kinda sad knowing he wouldn’t get to chase that dream, especially when you see the kid showing a passion.”

Someone else added:

“I think for me the saddest part is that the Bates kids all seem intelligent. I feel like they all have so much potential that was stifled by their cult-upbringing.”

  1. I have no idea what STEM means but every parent has the right to bring up their children the way they seem fit. They all seem happy and well taken care for, so who am I to weigh in? I don’t care for religion at all, but that doesn’t mean I impose my beliefs onto their family

  2. Most of these kids have gone to college or trade school. Erin has a music degree, 2 of the girls are cosmetologists and Tori has a teaching degree . 2 boys are pilots and the oldest girl is a nurse. Zach is a police officer . They do not do that . They encourage them to pursue what they love .

  3. The Bates have always encouraged their kids to pursue their dreams. It’s the Duggar’s that control everything their kids do.
