Are her priorities messed up?
For some mothers, raising their children is the only focus in their lives. Many mothers will put time with their children above everything else, putting aside other goals as they make motherhood the priority.
If Teen Mom has taught viewers one thing above all else, it’s that everyone has their own unique style of parenting. Despite her baby daddy drama, Kailyn Lowry has always been a dedicated and hardworking mother, willing to fight for her children’s safety and happiness. That said, she’s also always been open about her lofty career aspirations — and she’s not one to back down from the challenge of multitasking.
Now fans are wondering if Kailyn is a little too off balance when it comes to her parenting and career aspirations. She’s been diving headfirst into her passions, but is she letting other important responsibilities fall to the wayside in the process?
Over the years, it’s become clear that being a Teen Mom star is a full-time job. In addition to filming several days of the week, the girls deal with press, fly across the country for reunions, and defend themselves against nasty rumors on a daily basis. Pair that with being full-time mothers of multiple children, and you’ve got some very full plates.
Still, many of the cast members are ambitious enough to take on even more responsibilities. Many of the girls have side jobs in addition to their appearances on MTV, with some working on boutiques, makeup lines, and the like. Kailyn, on the other hand, has always been clear about her ambitions. The mother-of-three has always planned to put her hard-earned communications degree to work. Now it seems that she landed the perfect gig: co-hosting a podcast with fellow reality star, Lindsie Chrisley.
Kailyn has made a serious splash with her new role, including using the platform to announce the fact that she’s dating someone new! She’s been sharing snaps and insights from her podcast all over social media, and many fans are excited that she’s so happy with her new role. Of course, others are criticizing her and hitting her with some pretty serious accusations in the process!
Thanks to her pride in her work, Kailyn is now being accused of being “selfish” for focusing on her career instead of spending time with her children.
“14 of 18 pictures all about Kailyn and not about her kids,” wrote Instagram user @irre98. “She is starting to go the Farrah way.”
The accusations don’t seem to be fazing her much, though. She simply tweeted “Some people need to chill with the hate … Be happy people” in response.
She has good reason to feel confident, considering how successful Coffee Convos with Kail Lowry & Lindsie Chrisley has been. “Thank you, thank you, thank you! To everyone who has subscribed to our podcast! Last night we reached #9 in our category & #21 across all genres, because of y’all!” her co-host Lindsie recently tweeted.
Unfortunately for Kail, Coffee Convos isn’t the only reason that she’s is being accused of not spending enough time with her children. Some fans are also upset with Kailyn’s new relationship, saying that she should take more time to focus on her kids and not her new boo.
Reddit user JenellesTiredUterus slammed Kailyn over her new girlfriend:
”Unpopular opinion: I think the ‘but Kail is such a good mom’ narrative is bullsh-t. Yeah she has her kids’ material needs met and doesn’t abuse them. But that is such a low bar. Good moms at least try and address their mental health issues, and try to provide emotional stability. Kail does neither of those things. I would argue that providing emotional stability is even more important than financial stability. In any case, Kail needs to quit the bullsh-t hookups/relationships/whatever and ACTUALLY focus on her kids and their needs.”
