Duggar Family Daughters Say They Avoid Men So They Don't Sin

Four daughters of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have written a new book to inspire young people across America.

Growing Up Duggar was written by Jana, 24, Jill, 22, Jessa, 21, and Jinger, 20, notes EOnline.com.

The young Christian women have starred with their 15 siblings and parents on the TLC reality TV series "19 Kids and Counting."

Part of their new book includes their rules on dating.

According to the Daily Mail, the girls advise, "It's easy to put yourself into physical and moral danger and give into those emotions or sensual thoughts that promise pleasant, but only temporary, fulfillment."

"By censoring our thoughts through the filter of God's word, we will be able to recant any wrong thoughts or temptations that try to sneak in," add the Duggar daughters.

The young women also say they avoid men to ensure they don't sin, but "have a natural physical desire toward men" and "thank God for making us ‘normal.'"

The daughters also mention their struggles with weight as teens, their mother's battle with the eating disorder bulimia and their father's temper, reports Radar Online.

They are smart.

Regardless of what people think of their beliefs and their family they continue to live how they want. I can't fault them for that.

Quoting lovemymini: They are smart. Regardless of what people think of their beliefs and their family they continue to live how they want. I can't fault them for that.

 How they want to be or how they've been brainwashed to think they want to be?

If they didn't want to behave like this they could leave. They aren't held prisoner.

I was raised in a similar setting and loved it.

It's not brainwashing. The parents have instilled values for their family and just because they are different from yours doesn't mean they are bad.
