Yeah, the whole "self-control" thing is one of the Duggarisms that I really don't get. How can a person exercise self-control when they never have the opportunity to err? Doesn't make sense. Perfect example is when Joy covered up the women while they were watching "The View" or when the girls yell NIKE! to alert their brothers to scant clothing. That teaches no kind of self-control whatsoever. That teaches that other people (i.e. women, surprise surprise) are responsible for not putting you in a position where you would need to control yourself. It may seem wholesome enough, but to me it's just a variation on the attitude that leads people to ask a girl who's been assaulted what she was wearing at the time.
If the Duggar parents have been consistently training their children to have self-control then nothing bad should happen.
