If he was 14 when he did this....

Are you saying that as a 14+ year old he molested a 6 year old?
The court order from yesterday says that the victim who requested destruction of the police report is still a minor. To be a minor on May 21, 2015, the absolute latest she could have been born is May 22, 1997.
Which means, of course, that at least one of the girls was no older than six when this occurred, and could have been much younger.
Recently I read that Josh had been sent to ATI or some place similar because he had been inappropriately touching his sisters. Did he sexually abuse his sisters? Before I had heard it was something that sounded more innocent. I am a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and am dealing with it in therapy after 40-some years of telling no one other than my husband. This is such a life changing event in the lives of girls who are abused by a brother/sibling. If this is true, the Duggars sicken me at how they have handled it. My gut feeling is that the girls didn't get any help to heal from the trauma. Does anyone know this story? If so, I would appreciate knowing the truth. Thanks in advance!

What kind of parents are the Duggars?

the duggar parents are the only ones to blame.
they are not raising well rounded, mentally healthy kids.
anyone who does not see that has blinders on
At first discovery, the parents did nothing until months later, when Josh did it again
It's an actual biological sickness and there is no known cure. Sure you can 'not give into your impulse', but at the end of the day there's a very sad fact about pedophiles.
They fall in love with children. They can't help it, they find them attractive and they can't help it. No amount of therapy is going to help.
