Beliefs and Practices
The Maxwells sent their oldest sons to a Christian school before making the decision to homeschool. This decision was inspired by seeing a family at their church that homeschooled their children. After feeling unsatisfied with how long the children spent gone between school and the bus ride, they decided to make the switch. They made the switch when Nathan was entering the third grade and Christopher was entering the first grade. The family calls their homeschooling Flowing Streams Christian School.
The Maxwell family preaches against going into debt for any reason. They require their sons to purchase a home debt-free before allowing them to get married, as discussed in Steve and Teri's book Buying a House Debt-Free: Equipping Your Son, which features a forward from Jim Bob Duggar.
The Maxwell family is most-known for their scheduling systems, Managers of Their Chores and Managers of Their Homes. These systems utilize tools like a color-coded wall calendar and personalized ChorePacks for each child to help families plan their homeschooling and housework.
This system has been featured in the background of some of the earlier Duggar specials on Discovery Health and TLC, and seen (but not referenced) in the background of more recent Duggar pictures and episodes of Counting On.
