A source told RadarOnline that Michelle and Jim Bob gave Jana the title of “mini-parent” for her siblings from a young age, which includes cooking, cleaning and babysitting when they are away. “She looks so tired and worn down sometimes. You can’t help but feel bad for her, having to take on all that responsibility at a young age,” the source said.
