Did Jenelle mess up?
Becoming pregnant at the age of 16 is enough to put anyone in therapy. The Teen Mom cast members have gone through some seriously difficult times in their lives, and it’s no wonder that many of them have sought out therapy — and no, we don’t mean just with Dr. Drew during the Teen Mom reunions.
Of course, growing up on television from literally the day you were born can take a toll on children as well. That’s why many of the Teen Mom cast members have decided to let their children attend therapy to be able to work out any developing stresses they have before they get too intense. Jenelle’s first son Jace is currently in therapy for these reasons along with managing his ADHD.
Therapy can be extremely helpful for many people, but is there a way to do therapy the wrong way? Fans seem to think that Jenelle is making a mistake with Jace’s current therapy, calling her mothering techniques “unhealthy.”
Therapy is a common theme among Teen Mom cast members, and it’s not hard to see why. With the amount of fighting, hate, and drama in their lives, it’s no wonder they need a way to let it all out to a preofessional. Jenelle’s son Jace has been seeing a doctor for a while now for his ADHD, but is Jenelle taking the wrong step when it comes to his therapy?
Jenelle recently made a return to Twitter after she deactivating her account earlier this yea, and she’s already getting hate for some of her updates. In this case, it was about her decision to include David in Jace’s therapy.
One fan criticized Jenelle for ignoring Jace’s concerns about David. “Jenelle, I don’t think you listen,” wrote Twitter user MikeWAustin. “[Jace] told the therapist he was afraid of David. You ignored that and married him anyways.”
Jenelle retweeted the post, adding, “Now David will be having one-on-one sessions soon with Jace. Don’t worry about my family, we have this under control.”
There were numerous reasons why fans thought Jenelle’s update was inappropriate.Many people thought she was airing Jace’s problems for all to see on Twitter. “Ugh imagine your mother discussing your therapy sessions with like hundreds of thousands of followers. The poor kid deserves privacy,” wrote Reddit user Elasw.
“[I] used to be so mortified when my mom talked to her friends about me. i couldn’t even begin to imagine how it would feel if she was telling the world about my therapy,” agreed shortstormtroopers.
“Could you imagine being in a room with a therapist you trust and a guy you are terrified of? There is no way Jace is going to speak the truth around that nutcase which will result in losing trust in his therapist. I think it’s too soon for poor Jace,” wrote user X_wallflower_x.
Then again, some followers stuck up for Jenelle’s decision. “People are acting like the therapist is going to throw David and Jace into a room alone and then leave to go have a burger or something,” wrote user TheMightyZan. “IF this is going to happen, and IF the therapist is worth anything, there has been a lead up to this, it wasn’t just randomly decided over the weekend, and she will be trained to smell out any bulls–t that might be thrown, and to see what might not be being said.”
