The Shiny Happy People documentary also alleges that Jim Bob tried to marry Josh off as a teenager so that he would have an outlet for his sexual desires (a.k.a the poor girl he would have married) and wouldn’t molest people anymore. This, of course, is also gross, and definitely NOT the solution to getting real, actual therapy for your child who has sexually abused others.
No wonder Amy King now wants nothing to do with Jim Bob or Michelle and refuses to let them around her own three-year-old son.
“If I can’t trust you, you’re not gonna get to know my child. I’m not going to sit there at a family dinner at Thanksgiving and pretend we’re a loving family. No, I’m scared to death of my child being around them,” she told Vanity Fair. “It’s my right to protect Daxton at all costs and if that means that I cannot have a relationship with that family, then that’s fine.”
Kudos to King and her mom for speaking out about the abuse in the Duggar home and shining a light on what was truly total darkness.
