Jim Bob noted that in order to play the leader role in the family, it's important for fathers to ask for forgiveness from Jesus, their significant other and children. He also suggested that fathers remove all "books, magazines, television or Internet that have worldly or sensual content" from the home as a way to protect one's family.

"Replace them with good things, like wholesome music, biographies of great Christians, good old-fashioned family fun and games," he advised.

This advice comes just days after ET learned some members of the Duggar family have been sending letters of encouragement and forgiveness to Jim Bob and Michelle's eldest son, Josh, who checked into a faith-based rehab center in August, after admitting to a pornography addiction and being "unfaithful" to his wife Anna, which was discovered during the Ashley Madison hack. In May, the 27-year-old also admitted to molesting five minor girls, including four of his sisters, when he was a teenager.

"It was heartbreaking to hear, what had happened," an emotional Anna, 27, said in a Jill and Jessa: Counting On promo released on Friday, her first public statement since the cheating scandal.

While some of the Duggar's have found it in their hearts to forgive Josh, a source close to the Duggar family told ET that others are having a difficult time forgiving him, due to his lack of remorse for his aforementioned actions.

"He is not the person everyone thought they knew," the source claimed.

Last week, ET reported that a plane carrying Jim Bob and two of his sons was spotted at an airport in Rockford, Illinois, near the rehab facility where Josh is being treated. The plane was on the ground for several hours, before taking back off to Springdale, Arkansas, where the Duggar family resides. This raised questions as to whether or not Josh checked out of rehab.
