Michelle And Jim Bob Duggar Locked Kids In Rooms After Josh’s Molestation Incidents, Jill And Jessa Reveal
In what is slated to be a shocking interview, Jill and Jessa Duggar revealed that the Duggar family put locks on the kids' doors and enforced the rule that no child is allowed to be alone after the Josh molestation scandal.
According to The Daily Beast, Jill and Jessa will reveal on The Kelly File that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar “stopped letting kids be alone and put locks on their bedroom doors” after Josh admitted to sexually touching his four younger sisters in 2002 and 2003.
“My parents said OK, we’re not going to do this hide and seek thing where two people go off and hide together," Jill reportedly said. "Locks on the doors. You know, everybody’s in bed. Girls in the girls' room. Boys in the boys' room.”
Michelle Duggar said on June 3 that she no longer allowed boys to babysit, play hide ’n’ seek or have younger sisters on their laps after the incidents took place.
Jessa also addressed critics who believe the Duggars are hypocrites for supporting anti-gay laws after molesting his sisters.

“It’s right to say ‘here’s what I believe, here’s my values,’ even if you’ve made stupid mistakes or failures," Seewald said. "If you’ve had failures in your past it doesn’t mean you can’t be changed. I think that’s where, I think the real issue is people are making this sound like it happened yesterday.”
In another preview released Wednesday, Jessa defended her brother’s actions and said she and the family have forgiven him for his “stupid mistakes.”
"I do want to speak up in his defense against people who are calling him a child molester or a pedophile or a rapist, some people are saying,” she told Kelly. “I’m like, ‘That is so overboard and a lie really.’ I mean people get mad at me for saying that, but I can say this because I was one of the victims.”
Jill and Jessa will speak on The Kelly File on Fox News at 9 p.m. EST June 5.
