Where does she stand with her parents amid the docuseries?
In the comments section of Jill’s new post, a fan praised her for doing such a “great job on the documentary.” They pointed out that she didn’t seem to “dishonor” her parents or give them a bad name. They added that she only shared the facts about her upbringing.
In response, Jill Dillard said, “Thank you. I love my parents.” Despite her decision to speak out about the IBLP and the harmful parts of the religion, she still seems to be on decent terms with her parents.
However, Jill’s comment only reveals how she feels. She didn’t say what her parents think of her or if they are on speaking terms at this point.
Fans are curious to know more about the Duggar family’s dynamic and relationships amid the docuseries and Jill’s tell-all book. Hopefully, more will come to light in the near future.
