Jill Duggar shared a picture of him with her oldest son Israel over the weekend. Immediately, fans noticed that when the 5-year-old boy smiles, he has a stain that looks darker on his tooth.
A follower asked the former Counting On star if it was an injury or a cavity. Other fans came in to comment, but Jill Duggar did not answer.
In the sweet photo of Jill Duggar and Israel, she is sporting a red licorice straw from her mouth and he smiles big for the camera. The two enjoy the delights together.
The comment about her tooth has been a topic of conversation in the past. In September, Jill Duggar revealed that Israel had suffered a dental injury that caused her tooth to discolor. Not much is said about it, but many of Jill’s regular followers know the story.
One fan expressed his concern about the unusual discoloration that is a cavity. Rotten teeth emit the same color, and being that Israel is only five years old, it would be a bad sign.
Another follower jumped to Jill Duggar’s defense. The fan said that the Duggars are good with dental hygiene and that the Dillards take care of Israel. Many of the other commentators insisted that, being a baby tooth, it’s no big deal.
Counting On: Jill’s parenting criticized
This isn’t the first time Jill’s been called for her education. She’s been accused of using carpet education and other controversial parenting practices.
Currently, she seems to be halfway between her husband and her father. Jim Bob Duggar is concerned that Derick Dillard may bring down the Duggars if he gives a statement as expected. Jill Duggar would like to remain neutral, but that may not be possible.
Earlier this year, Jill Duggar announced that she and Derick have enrolled Israel in kindergarten this fall. She will be the first grandchild of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar to go to public school. Josh and Anna Duggar teach their children at home and are the only other school-age children in the family.
Although Jill Duggar did not respond directly to this particular comment about Israel’s tooth, she did in the past. Those who follow her regularly know what happened, and that may be why Jill Duggar doesn’t seem to be upset by the negative comments.
