Janelle is obviously a product of her mother. Barbara is so authority crazy and is way too extreme, she doesn't even realize she messed up her own daughter.
Her acting out in such a way is due to her crazy mom's putting her down and calling her all sorts of names, then threatening her, going back on her word, then the cycle continues. It's obvious that Janelle gets worse and worse because of it. It's almost as if Janelle's conscience is branded so much, that she can't think straight, even knowing the consequences. A young woman just doesn't turn out messed up that way without some kind of goading along, and issues from the mother herself. So sad. Janelle needs alone time. She desires love and understanding, but not from a crazy mother like her's, nor from guys that will encourage her bad behaviour. She needs definite counselling and needs to even look to a higher source for guidance. She needs that kind of strength.
Jenelle needs some jail/prison time.
Just thinking, if Janelle were to try to get herself better, her mother would shoot her right down...to the point where Janelle gives up and just acts out her mother's criticisms. Barbara has fallen wayyyy short in the mom department - especially in showing emotional love and support for a daughter who is obviously crying out for help. Barbara is totally responsible for this mess, imo. What are her other kids like?
If Barbara's grandson reminds her of Janelle, then watch out. That poor kid when he gets into adolescence. Get him out of that crazy woman's house! She needs parenting counselling.
You would think that Barbara just might have watched the last (2) Seasons and realized that SHE is a mess. All that constant constant screaming and yelling and fighting and arguing. When does one (a normal one) say THIS HAS TO STOP?
I mean she even TALKS loud. :mmm :mmm :mmm
Can somone tell me where Jenelle is right now? I heard about 2 months ago that she was living in CA and sleeping on anyone's couch who would let her. If you locate any link for her present whereabouts, please let me know.
My favorite part of Janelles parts is when her and Kieffer have their delusions of grandeur and talk about the life they are working towards. They just assume that two lowlifes are going to get well paying jobs, save enough money to buy a house, get the kid back and live happy ever after.
Upthread, someone posted that if someone from social services could see the footage of Jenelle and her mom argueing, they would step in. Well, not really. I live in NC and I know that if there was actually physical violence between them, that would be true, but just yelling and cursing each other, is not going to light a flame under social services. Still, I would like to know IF Jenelle is back in that house. If she is, someone needs to check on the matter. Just saying......if anyone knows please let me know.
Regardless of Barbara, Jenelle is old enough to know what's right and what's wrong....ie. not to smoke drugs when you have a toddler!(or for that matter EVER) Many people have overdemanding, impossible to please parents, but they all don't act like Jenelle. <3
And they grow up and act responsibly.
