Was Ensley in danger?
Jenelle Evans’ children have all had somewhat rocky upbringings. From Jace being essentially fatherless and fought over between Jenelle and Barbara to Kaiser being the subject of screaming matches between Jenelle and Nathan, it’s been a wild ride for both of them.
Jenelle’s third child Ensley should have a much easier time, considering that her parents are together and seem to be happily married. David and Jenelle tied the knot when Ensley was about half a year old, and so far, Jenelle hasn’t had to fight anyone for custody of her little girl. Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean she’s not going to make some other mistakes in her parenting.
Sadly for Jenelle, every parenting choice she makes is put under scrutiny by her millions of fans, and not all of them are going to be supportive. However, were fans right to call her out for this precarious picture of her daughter?
Sometimes fans critique Jenelle for her personal decisions, but now many seem genuinely worried about Ensley’s safety.
Everyone knows that raising a newborn is much more difficult than raising a toddler or a young child. Until they learn how to walk and stay out of danger, it requires parents to be constantly vigilant to make sure that their baby is not at risk of getting hurt. Now that Jenelle has three children of her own and is also the stepmother to David’s daughter Maryssa, it’s safe to say she has her hands full.
However, this picture wasn’t taken by accident. Jenelle made the decision to pose Ensley this way and take a shot on a mountaintop — which has put her under attack by many fans.
Are they right to call her out?
Jenelle has had the luck to raise all of her children in scenic North Carolina, which means that they’ve all gotten a lot of outdoor time. Looks like Jenelle decided to start young with Ensley, giving her a chance to see the beautiful mountains firsthand before her first birthday.
She shared this snap of Ensley crawling on the mountaintop with trees and clouds in the background. Many fans were in love with the shot. It’s clear that Ensley is enjoying her new experience, and Jenelle clearly was too. She captioned the shot, “If you only knew how much these simple moments mean to me, Little Mama. 🎀❄️ #FirstTime #Mountains #Adventurer.”
However, not everyone was as happy as Jenelle. Instagram user @andreanicole36 wrote, “Until she crawls off the edge all for a photo.” User @_mandaxoxo wrote, “Only you would allow your baby to crawl on a cliff.” User @belyvbelinda agreed, writing, “Beautiful pic …but i would had not taking that risk in putting her up there for a pic.”
That’s not the only thing fans criticized Jenelle for. After agreeing that the shot looked unsafe, user @watson_summer wrote, “And the jacket doesn’t look like it fits well enough to keep her warm.”
Luckily for Jenelle, she has many loyal fans who were ready to jump in and defend her. User @megannicole3067 wrote, “oh Lord. She isn’t putting her child in danger. She is perfectly safe.” User @ _jusclark_ agreed, “If you know anything about pictures being made, mom is probably right there just out of view of camera… come on now !”
Jenelle probably has her hands full with divorce rumors on the horizon, but she might have to give it a second thought next time she posts a picture of her kids!
