Amy Duggar slams Michelle & Jim Bob for 'taking advantage' of Jana after daughter is charged with child endangerment

AMY Duggar ripped her Aunt Michelle and Uncle Jim Bob for "taking advantage" of their eldest daughter Jana after her shocking child endangerment charges.

The Counting On alum previously defended her cousin as she told fans that "watching multiple kids is hard."

Amy, 35, took to Twitter on Tuesday to rant about parents who use their older children as "built-in babysitters" for their younger tots.

The reality star opened the conversation, writing: "I believe that if you are a parent you should watch your own children. It’s not right to always have someone else watching them for you.

"OK let me clear something up I’m not talking about loving good parents that work and provide for their families," she clarified.

"I support that! Of course! I’m talking about people who rely on Aunt’s or friends or anyone that takes advantage of people. Just simply because they can."

Amy continued in a third tweet: "Your kids even your older kids should not be your built-in babysitter. Your kids no matter what their age is should be able to live a normal adolescent life.

"Helping out every once in a while is great but if you’re gonna have that many kids then be responsible for them," she finished.

Although Amy did not mention any names specifically, Michelle and Jim Bob's oldest daughter Jana, 31, spent a good portion of her childhood helping with the couple's 18 other children.

The oldest unmarried Duggar has now taken on the role of babysitting her friends and siblings' children, leading to her shocking child endangerment charges that came to light last week.


According to court papers, the TV personality was charged on September 10 and posted $430 bail after a child reportedly wandered out of the house under her watch.

She had pleaded not guilty to the charge and her next court date is on January 10, 2022, at 1:30 pm, a clerk confirmed to The Sun.

Per Arkansas law, these charges can be either a “class A or B misdemeanor,” and penalties can include anything from jail time to fines.


Despite her scathing opinions on her family, Amy defended Jana after her charges were exposed.

Amy took to her Instagram Story on Saturday to protect her cousin, writing: “I will call out what is right and I will call out what is wrong. This couldn’t have been intentional. Thank God the child was ok and found!

“I bet you were exhausted, stressed, and just emotionally worn out.

“Watching multiple kids is hard! Bc there’s so many of them and you only have two eyes!!”

The post concluded: “It’s a very sad situation going on and my heart goes out to @janamduggar love you.”


However, prior to the post, fans wondered if she was shading her cousin in another Instagram Story.

Alongside a photo of her son Daxton, two, watching TV, Amy wrote: "I'm home with little man! We have jumped on the trampoline, built huge towers with blocks, read books and now a little lunch/screen time!

"One thing I won't be doing is falling asleep."

Amy quickly deleted the post, though fans captured the snap and discussed it on Reddit.

Jana's charges were revealed just days after her older brother Josh was found guilty of both possessing and receiving child pornography.
