Jill Duggar lets son Israel, 7, draw on new house’s windows during homeschool after she’s ripped for her ‘messy’ home

In the pics, Jill, 31, captured her oldest son, Israel, from behind as he wrote on the glass with a brown marker.
One snap showed the seven-year-old admiring his writing of the word “through” in cursive.
In the second photo, the youngster erased another word he etched on the window with a tissue.
Jill explained the act in her caption: “We like to try and make learning fun when we can! We write on the windows with dry erase markers sometimes to reinforce concepts!
“Tell me some other ways you make learning fun!” she encouraged.
The first grader was in the middle of a homeschool session, despite the mother-of-three enrolling her son in a public school in August 2020.
Jill has been straying from her family’s strict conservative ways – including homeschooling her children.
She’s also rebelled against other rules set forth by her parents, Jim Bob, 57, and Michelle, 56, including defying their dress code and even piercing her nose.

However, Jill’s latest move was even more alarming, given critics previously slammed her for keeping an unkempt home.
WHAT A MESS
In September 2021, she opened up with fans about staying on top of laundry amid her hectic schedule.
She shared a photo of her full laundry basket, revealing that her family was “living out of” it in the caption.
Jill wrote: “We are currently in a ‘living out of the laundry basket’ season…which actually kinda happens a lot around here.
“What’s your struggle? Dishes? Laundry? Etc. How do you simplify? Share.”
A year earlier, she shared a similar photo featuring her husband Derick Dillard, 33, and their oldest sons, Israel and Samuel, five.
The trio posed together in their living room, standing in front of the Christmas tree.
Fans were distracted by the laundry pile sitting next to them, which Jill seemed to address in her caption.
She wrote: “Even if the start to your Christmas looks like ours (see my stories for our crazy first 24 hrs of break)…or even harder…we hope you’ll find peace in the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ, the reason for the Christmas season!”
One fan commented: “I feel that laundry pile in my soul.”
And in 2018, she was criticized for leaving then-six-month-old Samuel on a dirty carpet.
She posted a photo on Instagram of her second son crawling on a shag rug.
Followers quickly slammed her decision to put him directly on the carpet, suggesting a blanket to avoid dirt.
“Don’t you ever vacuum that carpet. It’s filthy,” one comment read.
The Counting On alum – who welcomed his third son with Derick in July – isn’t the only member of the Duggar clan to receive flack over their messy living spaces.
Jill’s sisters, Jana, 33, Jinger, 29, Jessa, 30, and Joy-Anna, 25, have also been slammed for their disorganized homes on numerous occasions.
