Is Jill Duggar trying to put her reality television days behind her for mommy blogging instead? That's what her fans can't help but wonder as the celebrity mom recently tried to engage her social media followers in a hot topic discussion concerning motherhood.
Duggar is apparently trying to get her 1-year-old son Israel David, whom she shares with her husband Derick Dillard, to pick up after himself and she wrote a blog post about it, asking readers for advice.
On her official website DillardFamily.com, the former TLC reality star wrote: "Hey to you moms out there! I've got a question...from your own experiences, when did your kids start picking up their toys on their own?"
She further explained, "Israel just went down for a nap and I just got all his toys put back in their right places. I've had him come alongside me to help pick them up and I try to make it fun for him, but since he is only 1 yr. old I figure it will be awhile before he knows how to do it on his own. Any thoughts?"
Jill's fans responded with, "I started around 18 months with my four (or even earlier, as soon as they could hold toys). At first it's just cheering them on while they put toys in a bucket, one toy at a time, talking them through all of it," as well as, "Start with getting rid of training blankets and markers.. Next why not try what you already know from raising your own brothers and sisters uhh second thought not a good idea.Teach vs train."
Another critic wrote, "I am a bit shocked she would ask this question growing up with all those siblings of hers. She seriously has to ask this question to the public? Good grief.."
So far Jill herself hasn't updated her fans on whether or not she's taken any of their advice, but this may very well be her first foray into the world of celebrity mommy blogging.
