9pm ET/8pm CT: Loads of Laundry and Lots of Lessons (NEW!)
A fire in the laundry room caused severe smoke damage inside the Bates house, and the family has temporarily relocated to just two rooms at a hotel. How will they handle their daily routine as the fire damage is cleaned up? Later, Jeb and Judson learn important life lessons when Gil and Kelly try to help them understand the true dangers and consequences a fire can have. To try to get their mind off things, the Bates head to the ARK Encounter.

  2. I do not know which boy climbed up the poles at the Ark but, as a parent my children would never be allowed to do that because it is my job as a parent to teach them how to behave in a Museum. I love the Bates family but I think Gil and Kelly need to reign in some of the boys and teach them how to act. I realize after awhile you get tired of correcting children but that is your job. Yes, I too want my children to have fun and enjoy a certain experience and depending on how they behave we may have another fun experience. I get you and Gil want more children and are trying all the time, but train up the ones you have first.

    1. I think that its their place to do it, not yours.

  3. Dear anonymous who was giving unsolicited and likely unwanted parenting advice. parenting is a hard but rewarding job...it comes with no instruction book...and so in my mind we should treat each parent with the most kindness we can. All parents make mistakes...not that I am saying The Baits have....i am more trying to day before judging how clean our neighbors windows are...perhaps we need to make sure ours are smudge and streak free. Just sayin.

  4. Yes, I agree, we need to teach our children to be respectful of other peoples property. Sometimes that means don't touch or don't climb on it unless there is a sign inviting you to do so.

  5. That was the first thought I had when I saw that picture. Very disrespectful. I would have to assume Gil and Kelly didn't see that until it was too late.

    1. Well, somebody had to have seen it and taken a picture of it. I would guess his parents took the photo. However, I could be wrong?

  6. Anybody know what Nathan is up to in Mississippi, is it his flying still? I keep hearing he's back off to Mississippi and he is not in the episodes that often anymore

  7. That REALLY upset me. Not only did "that" boy disrespect the space, He only gives the little ones ideas that it is acceptable.

    I enjoy the Bates show very much - even record it to watch it a second time.
    My main problem is their grammar.
    Unless things have changed, I was taught you use the other person's name first -
    For example: "Nathan & I went to the store" - NOT me and Nathan. . . . . is that a southern way of speaking?
    They all mistakenly do that.
    Grammare is so important AT A YOUNG AGE.

    1. I absolutely love it when people go out of their way to critique someone's grammar but don't take the time to double check their own spelling. "Grammare" is important, after all. :P

    3. I'm not the original commenter, but...

      He/she is right about the "me and XXX." That's something parents should correct, especially since they are homeschooled and will not have an outside teacher to correct that.

      Also misspellings are common when you're using typing on a small cell phone keyboard. I know from experience that sometimes one of my fingers hits the "publish" button by accident before I've corrected the misspellings.

    4. I agree about their grammar. It does not leave one with a favorable impression of homeschooling and makes you wonder what else is lacking.

      Delete
    5. Their grammar has nothing to do with homeschooling, and everything to do with how their parents talk. Kelly and Gil were not homeschooled. I have heard many other children use improper grammar who go to public school. I think part of it is being raised in the country, but I have heard city people speak improperly as well.

    6. 11:13 PM -- Yes, but when a child is homeschooled, then his parents better be sure to do it right, because there will be no other teacher to correct it.

  8. Hee hee. I had the same thought, Anonymous at 8:01. :)

    1. I'm a Californian, and I believe children should be taught to speak proper English. It can never hurt you, only help you, whereas speaking improperly can be a major hindrance. I also never watch The View. From the snippets I have seen, I can't stomach their ignorant beliefs and snarky attitudes. If they bash Trump and you don't like it, then why not just stop watching?
