Early life

Justin as a small child

Justin Samuel Duggar was born on November 15, 2002, to Jim Bob Duggar and Michelle Duggar. He was the couple's fourteenth child, and they went on to have five more children after him.

Justin has been homeschooled his entire life.

Like most children, Justin has chores, which the family calls "jurisdictions". In 2011, Justin's jurisdiction was cleaning the playroom.

By the time Justin was born, his parents had implemented a buddy system, where each older child was paired with a younger child to take care of. Typical tasks for an older buddy included dressing, bathing, and feeding their younger buddies. By 2009, the family had switched from individual buddies to buddy teams, with each team being led by one of the oldest four daughters. Justin was on a buddy team with older siblings Jessa and Jeremiah and younger sister Jordyn-Grace.

In 2006, as featured on one of the TV specials, Justin and his family moved into a new home in Springdale, Arkansas. In this house, Justin was given a dormitory-style room with his brothers. Justin still lives in this house today.

Thanks to the reality show, Justin was able to take a number of vacations as a child. Notable vacation locations include Disneyland, New York City, Niagara Falls, Scotland, Ireland, London, Israel, China, and Japan.
