Counting On Fans Debate Joy-Anna Forsyth’s Reckless Attitude

Counting On: Joy-Anna Duggar Forsyth

Counting On fans know that Joy-Anna Duggar Forsyth lost a child and seemed broken after the miscarriage. So, TLC fans sometimes wonder why she seems so casual and almost reckless when it comes to safe parenting. Well, differences of viewpoints between fans seem to depend on the levels of safety that people were raised under. So, they debated Joy-Anna’s attitude on Instagram this weekend. 

Counting On Mom Joy-Anna Forsyth Raises Gideon And Evelyn

The ninth child of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar welcomed their son Gideon on February 26, 2018. Now, the three-year-old is a big brother to Evelyn who arrived on August 21, 2020. In-between the two children, their second child, Annabell Elise miscarried at 20 weeks. Naturally, Joy felt devastated. In fact, they took their baby girl and buried her on Austin’s family’s property at Fort Rock Family Camp.

This year, many fans speculated that Counting On alum, Joy-Anna Forsyth might be carrying another baby. That came when she disappeared off Instagram for a while. Actually, it might have been due to her taking a step back from the publicity of Josh Duggar’s arrest. But, some fans recalled that she disappeared for a while when she fell pregnant with Evelyn as well. However, some critics think that she’s careless with the kids that she already raises. 

Counting On Alum Shared Gideon On An ATV

Joy-Anna Forsyth took to Instagram and on Sunday, The Sun reported about it. She shared a photo of Gideon sitting on an ATV. However, while she thinks it’s a fun toy and a big “adventure,” a lot of fans were shocked. After all, her son wore no long pants and no shoes. When Katie Joy of Without A Crystal Ball shared about it, many fans argued as to whether it’s a power wheels type toy or a 50 CC ATV for kids.
