Tyler Baltierra clapped back at keyboard warriors after they tried to diagnose his daughter. The Teen Mom OG star was angry that strangers were claiming there was something wrong with his child, and he did not hold back!
Tyler and his wife Catelynn Baltierra are no strangers to being shamed for their parenting tactics, but this time it hit too close to home.
Keep reading to find out what he had to say!
Last October, Catelynn posted a video on snapchat of her daughter riding a horse. Nova Reign is riding without a saddle and her helmet clearly has an improper fit. Fans on reddit were quick to criticize her and her husband Tyler for their poor parenting decision.
User metalhead35 wrote, “The obvious helmet issues are there, plus I personally have been bucked by a few horses in my day, and once as a kid.”
“A saddle makes it much easier to stay on should that happen,” they explained. “I like riding bare back with a horse that I’m very familiar with, but I don’t think I’d personally put my 3 year old on a large horse with no saddle.”
User PygmyFists clarified, “It’s not so much about the no saddle thing itself as it is that not only is her helmet not on right, there are no professionals around, Callie is a bit jerky/stuffed legged here, AND this tiny child is without a saddle making the risk of injury significantly higher.”
They added, “Basically, Cate should not be the one supervising any of this.”
This time around though, the accusations are wildly different from equine safety. On a recent episode of Teen Mom OG, Nova had a temper tantrum, and fans are convinced they know the reason behind the outburst.
Fans have accused the couple of causing stress for the child due to their strained relationship. Tyler took to Twitter to defend against these accusations.
Yesterday he tweeted, “Wait…so a kid throws a fit nowadays & we’re calling it ‘abandonment anxiety issues’!? I must have not received that memo, but that you to all of the social media child therapists for this new diagnosis. Hahaha!”
Catelynn then shared her opinion on the matter as well.
