Since Joy-Anna Duggar's courtship announcement last month, many of you have been asking about her beau, Austin Forsyth. Also an Arkansas native, Austin grew up in the country with his parents and sister, Meagan, running Fort Rock Family Camp, which the Duggars have visited multiple times.
In 2009, the Forsyths participated in an episode of the TV show World's Strictest Parents. (At that time, Meagan was 17, and Austin was 15.) With cameras rolling, the family took in two troubled teenagers, 18-year-old Tyler and 15-year-old Arielle, to show them what it's like to live in a home filled with love and mutual respect.
The results are incredible. In just a few days, Tyler and Arielle make incredible transformations, and they begin to thoroughly enjoy their time with the Forsyth family. When their parents arrive to pick them up, they are thrilled by the changes they see in their children.
You can watch video clips from the World's Strictest Parents episode featuring the Forsyths on the CMT (Country Music Television) website. Here are the links to the three that we recommend. We don't recommend the other three clips, which show the first half of the visit and include a few curse words from Tyler and Arielle.
