Where is Jenelle's dad, and what's that story? You cannot convince me that there was a lot of permissive behavior on Jenelles' mother's part that led to Jenelle's assumption of priviledge. People only treat you the way you ALLOW yourself to be treated; you can't be a doormat unless you lay down, first. Yelling is not what's going to get any kind of cooperation in any situation....I believe it just makes people more defiant. Actions speak louder than words and, when all you're giving is screamed words, you are working against yourself.
