Fans are worried!
It’s true that all parents have their own unique way of raising their children, but mistakes are not uncommon when it comes to being a parent. It can be difficult to get everything right, even for parents who have had numerous children. Sometimes, the fans of Teen Mom become particularly critical about the cast members and their parenting styles, picking apart every small act. However, there are times that the fans are totally valid in their concerns.
When one fan pointed out the dangers of a clip that Jenelle recently showed, it alarmed many of her fans when it comes to her children’s safety. Could Jenelle be putting her children at risk with her lax parenting rules?
There’s a pretty clear difference in the ways that some of the Teen Mom’s social media are treated compared to others. Of course, cast members like Farrah Abraham get much more hate on their social media than fan favorites like Chelsea Houska and Maci Bookout. Thanks to Jenelle’s history, her social media posts often fall into the first category. The comment sections of her posts often contain equal parts hate and petty criticisms about everything from her hair to her kids’ clothes. However, this particular video seems to have fans genuinely concerned about her children’s safety.
It’s normal for children to horse around, especially at a certain age and especially when they’re boys! Jenelle’s step-daughter Maryssa got in on the fun as well in a clip Jenelle posted of the kids playing wrestling. Although all of the kids seem to be having fun, there is one moment when Maryssa grabs Jace and flips him over, letting him land on his neck.
Now, some fans think that Jenelle not taking action when shown this potentially dangerous display could have major consequences.
“Doesnt matter that Jace could end up paralyzed guys… what matters is ‘it’s their room’ not hers,” wrote Twitter user @Anon_Mafioso. They added, “dont care that theyre playing, even rough housing BUT Jace was clearly saying Maryssa was hurting him then pulled a very unsafe neck roll and she was more worried about a room? Who will take care of him if hes paralyzed? Not [Jenelle]…BABS and she already has enough problems.”
This user was far from the only one who thought that this behavior was alarming. “She has no self awareness or any sense of what is appropriate or not with regards to her kids,” user @HPoshCloset wrote. “I cringe to think of what we will see as they get older.”
“As a nurse and mother, this is horrific,” wrote user @dee_gunter. @sksmith_rn chimed in, “Absolutely agree. Most parents would shut down that kind of behavior, not post it on Snapchat for the world to see. Poor Jace!”
However, not all of the fans were quite so concerned about Jenelle’s children. Users like @LisaAnnPerez1 thought the entire video was blown out of proportion. “The kids are playing all you can do is complain,” they wrote.
This isn’t the only video that Jenelle has had picked apart by fans in recent days. She posted a video of David and herself singing along to music during a vacation, and many viewers believed that they were both high during the video.
“Ya know, I’d hate to s**t on someone for having a good time with their SO…. but this is just so bizarre even for Jenelle,” wrote Reddit user PJSamus. “She’s acting like a 16 year old girl that just had her first Smirnoff shot on an empty stomach after a cheer competition.”
