It's been over three years since Josh Duggars child molestation scandal surfaced and has exclusively learned that his family continues to treat him as if nothing happened.

A Duggar family insider revealed to Radar that it’s "strange" being around Josh and his wife, Anna, both 30, at family gatherings.

“Everyone treats him as if everything's normal, and you wouldn’t know what he did based on people’s treatment of him,” the source said.

Just months after a police report revealed that Josh fondled five minor females years ago inside of the family’s Arkansas home – four of whom were his sisters – he admitted to cheating on his wife and having a sex addiction.

The source said most people around Josh act as if they “don’t even think about it.”

The family insider also claimed that Josh, the oldest of Michelle and Jim Bob’s 19 children, behaves as if he has authority over his family, including his five kids he shares with Anna.

“He talks to everybody like Jim Bob. He disciplines his kids,” said the insider.

Josh doesn’t let his kids get away with much, the source continued.

“His kids were playing on the pew in church and he had to come over and call them two different times to come back to him,” the source revealed.

Could Anna be hiding her shame with her husband? The scorned wife recently acknowledged the couple’s 10 year anniversary, calling the last decade a “wonderful adventure.”
