The Duggar dad, does he seem a little...?

like a snake oil salesman (or in more modern terms, a used car salesman) to anyone else?

Just watching him on the show, he gives me the creeps.

  • Yeah, do we know what they are REALLY like after the cameras go away? LOL.
    I DH and I were calm parents too. We didn't freak out and yell or use bad words when we had kids at home. We could handle our three kids well ....and yet we didn't try to populate the world.LOL.

  • LOL He IS a used car salesman. That is how he supported his family. He started with used cars and then went into rental properties. His oldest son currently is running the used car lot.

  • I knew about the son. I didn't know that's how the dad started out. I thought he was into rental properties or something. LOL Well, that explains that. Now I KNOW I cant trust him. LOL

  • I think we just aren't use to parents being calm in the midst of chaos. They keep their cool, like a used car salesman, when I would just need a time out.

  • I agree with jesse: I think they are so good at parenting, that most normal people find them intimidating or strange in some way. I love to watch them, even though they are so different than me.

  • LOL, He's a Politian. And a used car salesman, so I am sure alot of people get that impression of him. Personally I think he is a great Father and a great example for the kids.

  • Well we see that they are all calm and collected when the camera is rolling but who really knows what goes on behind closed doors when no one else is around to witness.
