On February 22, 2020, Jill Duggar wrote about her son, Israel, and his kindergarten registration on her blog. In the blog post, Jill wrote, 'We have already been homeschooling him some, but decided it would be fun to let him go to kindergarten this year. It’s extra special because it’s the same school district Derick enrolled in over 25 years ago.' Aww.

On the blog, there are many comments, one of which says, 'Yay!! I’m a kindergarten teacher- and it’s such a wonderful experience for children. Don’t get me wrong, homeschooling is awesome, but I sure do love my job and the friends I share it with! He’s going to move it, you will too!!'

Another encouraging comment from a fan said, 'He’ll feed off your positivity and love school! I think it’s great for him!'

However, not all of the comments were positive, one saying, 'Oh please don’t send your children to public school! Homeschool them. Public schools are indoctrination centers for evil. I call them farms for the elite... Poor Israel. This honestly breaks my heart.'

While there were comments left on the blog post, a lot of people commented on Jill's Instagram post.

Some fans encouraged Jill on Instagram, one saying, 'You're going to love some free time.' Another person said, 'I am a fan and supporter that doesn't post much. Congrats on Kindergarten Israel! You will no doubt succeed!

It is good that most of the comments about Jill's son starting kindergarten are positive ones. Still, some of the negative ones are quite hurtful. One person even commented, 'So much for raising a Christian.' This comment is a bit like a slap in the face to Jill's beliefs.

Still, Jill doesn't seem fazed. At least, she has not posted about the negative comments to this point. They seem to be excited about this change, even in the midst of other drama in her family.

Apparently Jill and Derick are not on good terms with Jill's parents. Jill does not have any communication with her younger brothers and sisters that live at home with her parents, but she does keep in regular contact with her married siblings.

Suspicion rose in 2019 when Derick and Jill moved into their new house without the help of her family.

Apparently the entire family was on vacation at the time that Jill and Derrick were moving.

Derick even came forward saying that the only person under contract with TLC is Jill's father, Jim Bob. While this information has not been confirmed by anyone, it still raises a question or two. The two are parenting the way that they want to, regardless of her parents' ridiculous expectations.

Are Jill and Derick living their lives and refraining from contacting her parents? If so, at least the family of four is doing well. They seem so excited at this new milestone of Israel starting kindergarten.
