Tonight: Learn Like a Bates

It's Thursday, which means it's time to check in with the Bates family. Tune in to UP at 9pm ET/8pm CT for a new episode of Bringing Up Bates, and then come back to the blog for a recap.

9pm: Life Lessons
The family takes us inside the rewards and challenges of homeschooling so many kids, each with a different learning style, and Tori shares how she is pursuing higher education. Kelly talks candidly about her daughter Addallee’s hearing disability, and we get a glimpse into the special relationship between Addallee and her sister Ellie. Then Gil leads the boys through a hard-core PE class, and Nathan flies an airplane.

  1. Plus it also says Gill leads the boys in a hard core PE class and again there was no mention or showing of that either. Why tell us there will be something on the show then deny us the satisfaction of seeing/learning about it? I love learning about/from this wonderful family but hate being told one thing and seeing something different.

    1. I agree. This must be a mishap.

  2. I didn't see anything about Addallee's hearing disability... Did I miss it?

    1. Does Addallee have a hearing disability ??! How sad. How is she doing ?! Can we learn more about it? I remember reading Kelly's Blog and she said Addallee was premature and they worried about her making it, and that is why she has double letters in her name.

  3. I also missed the PE lesson... Was there another episode I didn't see?

  4. Hi Readers,

    Addallee's hearing disability and Gil's PE lesson were supposed to be covered in Thursday's episode, but they were not.

    Blessings,
    Lily and Ellie

  5. Are the girls allowed to have a career before they are married?

    1. Erin does. She is a music teacher. Kelly encourages her children to farther their education but most of them preferred not to. Alyssa went briefly to college, just to please her mother but was uninterested in college. She had her future set on a life with John in Flordia. She's very happy. Tori is very smart young woman and had a strong desire for college. She is a lot like Kelly in this way. She is great at teaching her younger siblings and enjoys it. Kelly even pays her for this.
