The Benevolent Bates

Bringing Up Bates

Which member of the Bates family is the most generous? The more accurate question is, are there any Bates who aren't generous? Everyone polled in the video below has a different answer, and they are all eager to shower praise along with their responses.

  1. Pretty sure 'Mom' came out on top right there! Kelly Jo seems like the most wonderful mom and friend to all her family. I just love her.

  2. I just noticed the new header pictures. I'm not sure when it changed, but very nice job. Nice pics!!!!

  3. What a nice problem to have!

  4. My first pick is Kelly. She is very sweet, wise, patient, loving and never afraid to actually learn something new from her kids. My second pick is Micheala. Third pick is Chad. The Bates family is filled with kind hearted people but those three stand out to me, as a fan

  5. I'm going with Lawson on that. Singing, visiting kids in the hospital, going to Texas helping out after Hurricane Harvey, helping out after that fire in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, always helping out with kids i.e. siblings, nieces, nephews as evidence in photos, offering to teach siblings how to drive, last but not least - not sure, but I'd bet he's done singing for benefits too. Granted he is able to maybe do some of these things because he has no wife or kids yet, but he still does them! Thought I heard rumors of a Bates wanting to help in Puerto Rico too? Lawson? Lawson even helped his parents buy groceries for the family when his parents hit a rough patch. He had his own lawn business as a teen when he bought food to help out! Alot of teens wouldn't do that! And in case anyone's wondering, no, I'm not a lovesick Lawson fan girl! I'm a 59 year old grandma!
