Jill Duggar Dillard recently took to Instagram to promote a sex education book for children from the ages of 3 to 5. Her intended purpose in promoting the book quickly backfired.


Followers of the former “Counting On” star were torn between those who felt the book was encouraging the wrong agenda and those who felt it was a wholesome Christian book.

Jill Duggar Dillard recently posted on Instagram a cover photo of the book “The Story of Me,” written by Stan and Brenna Jones. The book is meant to teach children about the basics of sex education.

She captioned her post, “Want to teach your kids about the birds and the bees before someone else does, but you don’t know where to start? Someone in our small group told us about these books (4 book set) and we love them!”

They felt that Jill and her husband Derick Dillard’s children Israel, 3, and Samuel, 1, were too young for sex talk. The book also had some controversial teachings in it.


Radar Online reported that the book promoted a very conservative agenda. It’s said to encourage parents to teach their children that they could only have children of their own after they were married.

"God wants only people who are married to have babies," the authors wrote. The book also states that all sex education must be taught by the Christian parents.

It also has text that is anti-LGBTQIA+ propaganda. Plus it also claims that neither same-sex parents nor single parents were capable of raising children.


"God gave Sarah a vagina and womb, and he didn’t give that to you. That makes her a girl," it reads. "Only girls can become mommies, and only boys can become daddies. Being a boy or a girl is special to God!"

Followers of either star would know that their LGBTQIA+ stance isn’t something new. Derick once slammed Trans Star Jazz Jennings after her gender confirmation surgery.

At the time he wrote, "This kind of thinking should not be encouraged by media. A system that allows this kind of child abuse is clearly broken."


After his comments surfaced, TLC terminated him from his contract with the network. Neither he nor his wife has appeared in the last three seasons of “Counting On.”

There were, however, those who felt the book was a good addition to have.
