Jill Duggar is often criticized for how she chooses to raise her children and it looks like she is stepping away from the usual once again. In her recent YouTube video that she uploaded on her 'Dillard Family Official' page, the young mom took a clip of Israel's homeschooling curriculum and revealed that she often gives him a bag of candy after he completes his work. Jill, who is a mom to two boys, 3-year-old Israel David and 1-year-old Samuel Scott decided to homeschool Israel as a means to help him start learning at a young age. In the video, Jill states that she is helping her son learn a few things, like "phonics and stuff." She also told her followers that she is following a few curriculums — Sing, Spell, Read, and Write, which usually help children learn about the alphabet and literacy tools. 

Jill revealed that her mom often used the same tool to teach them and she thinks that "it worked really well." Jill also told her fans that she uses the book 'Teach Your Child To Read In 100 Easy Lessons' in order to help with the teaching. The book states that a child can learn how to read in 100 days. She updated her fans that she has not yet taught her son how to do math but does enjoy the teaching part. 

She then revealed how Israel is most excited about the treasure box, which is filled with rewards like candy that he is allowed to have after he finishes his work. Jill hinted that she enjoys the time she spends teaching Israel. "I'm no professional at all but this is just what we've enjoyed and Israel loves school right now, so we're trying to just keep him busy with that," she said in the video. "And it is fun."

In the past, Jill has also praised her mother, Michelle for teaching her the way she did."My momma taught me the importance of instilling scripture into the hearts and minds of your young children," she wrote on her blog at the time. "I recently started teaching Israel some Bible verses and I was amazed at how quickly he picked up on them! Even when I was looking at homeschooling curriculum (yes, Israel just turned three but I'm just excited!).

As reported by InTouch Weekly, the Duggars use the Advanced Training Institute in order to educate their youngsters. The website states that the programme is  a "Biblically-based home education program for families who desire to raise up sons and daughters who are 'mighty in Spirit' and able to impact the world for Jesus Christ."

Their practice has been heavily criticized by the people. Recently, Jim and Michelle's youngest daughter, Josie got people worried that she might be behind the rest of her peers in class because of the system that the Duggars followed. Hopefully, the same will not be in the case of Israel but giving him candy at the end of every lesson may not fit with every other parent.
