Regardless of the way the Browns annoy me on several levels, I do hand them one thing. Kody and the sister wives allow their kids to have their say about how they feel about religion, feelings and life in general. Often the kids do not agree with their parents, but Kody, especially, allows them to speak their mind, as long as it's done respectfully. I appreciate that. The Duggars don't do that. Their kids have no free will, no say so and no real opportunity for independent thought, regardless of what they say, IMO. My opinion is based on watching them from season one. The Browns also place a high priority on education and the Duggars put it down.
