Jessa Duggar-Seewald  made light of the sexual abuse she and sister Jill Duggar-Dillard experienced at the hands of their older brother Josh Duggar in a sit-down interview with Megyn Kelly, set to air Friday night during “The Kelly File” at 9 p.m.

Dillard and Seewald were adamant that they were unaware of what their brother had done to them until her confessed to their parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, prompting their parents to speak to them about their brother’s behavior

In quotes from the interview shared with FOX411, Seewald explained: “…I can speak out and I can say this and set the record straight here. Like in Josh’s case, he was a boy, a young boy in puberty and a little too curious about girls. And that got him into some trouble. And he made some bad choices, but really the extent of it was mild, inappropriate touching, on fully clothed victims, most of it while girls were sleeping”

Dillard and Seewald were adamant that they were unaware of what their brother had done to them until her confessed to their parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, prompting their parents to speak to them about their brother’s behavior.

“It wasn’t like we were keeping a secret afraid or something. We didn’t know until Josh explained to my parents what his thought process was, what everything was…” Dillard said, repeating the point her parents made on their exclusive sit down with Kelly, which aired Wednesday

The girls say that Jim Bob they put safeguards in place in their home. Dillard said their parents added locks to the doors in their home and insist that they are being judged, especially since they are known for their strong Christian beliefs, but they are a family “with challenges and struggles just like anybody else.”
