JOY-ANNA Duggar was slammed for not spending more time homeschooling her son Gideon, three.
Joy-Anna, 23, took to her Instagram stories to tell her fans how she spends a bit of time every day teaching Gideon basics such as the alphabet and colors.

She filmed herself in their living room as she spelled out her reasons for her homeschooling methods.
“I normally try and do like five minutes a day, doesn’t always happen but just like to get the numbers, the letters, the colors kind of ingrained in his head,” she explained.
“And I feel consistency works better than [studying] over long periods of time, every so often.”
She added, while holding up a workbook: “So I’ve got this fun schoolbook that I found for him… so anyone that’s our morning.”
Joy-Anna then shared an adorable video of her and Gideon singing the ABCs together.
But fans on Reddit were not impressed by the adorable display and instead slammed the young mom for only doing five minutes of teaching with her son.
“What do you expect from Joy?” wrote one fan on Reddit.
It comes just days after fans were busy criticizing her for allowing Gideon to ride an ATV without his shoes on, as fans urged the former reality star to consider his “safety.”
In the snap, Gideon had a blue helmet on as he rode the ATV over the grassy field.
Joy-Anna’s son had a huge smile on his face as he had his palms on the handlebar grips.
He appeared to have a shoe missing as his barefoot was placed on the footrest.
The Counting On alum wrote: “New toys, new adventures.”
Joy-Anna’s Duggar family has been embroiled in controversy after her brother Josh Duggar is believed to have been placed on the sex offender registry after “molesting his sisters” years before his child pornography arrest, court papers claim.
Josh, 33, was arrested and charged with possessing and receiving child pornography in April.
The arrest came years after Touch Weekly uncovered a 33-page Arkansas police report in 2015 claiming Jim Bob confessed to local authorities that his eldest son fondled the breasts and genitals of young girls while they were asleep in the Duggar family home back in 2006.
His younger sisters Jill, 29, and Jessa, 28, came forward as two of the victims in an interview with Megyn Kelly, where they insisted they had forgiven Josh, who was never charged, for his sins.
In May 2017, Jill, Jessa, Jinger, 27, and Joy-Anna, 23, sued the City of Springdale, Bauer, who owns In Touch, and other Defendants for invasion of privacy and more, claiming releasing the records caused “extreme mental anguish and emotional distress.”
The Sun can exclusively reveal the Springdale Defendants served the Department of Human Services with a subpoena on August 2, 2021.
Josh pleaded not guilty to the two child pornography counts.
The trial has been reset to November 30 and has the potential to last until December 3.
As The Sun previously reported, Josh’s legal team filed court documents to have the case dismissed.
The former 19 Kids and Counting star is currently on home confinement until his trial and is living with third party custodians LaCount and Maria Reber, who are longtime friends of Jim Bob and Michelle.
Josh is residing in a massive mansion in Elkins, Arkansas with the Reber family.
The Arkansas judge on the case ordered Josh to wear a GPS ankle monitor.
Josh’s wife Anna, who is pregnant with their seventh child and due in the fall, is standing by her husband and has visited him with their children.
Josh has unlimited access to his children with Anna present.
