ugh teenagers are so @@#%@#$! The only thing wrong Barbara does is let Jenelle move back in after every single stunt and fight. And actually gives her chance after chance after chance. But honestly, what Mom could turn her own kid away? One teen mom thinks she has the right to criticize another’s mother? Barbara does choose her battles. Think about all the disrespect and loathing attitude that Jenelle shows her mother, MY kid doesn’t talk to me like that because they know better. Babs doesn’t say anything about it because she’s choosing not to.

I agree, My kids KNOW BETTER than, to dissrespect me or any other elder! BUT AGAIN IT’S ALL IN THE UP BRINGING! My kids 16 & 17 (14 mths apart) are NOT PERFECT BY NO MEANS BUT THEY DO KNOW WHAT RESPECT IS, AND THAT I DEMAND IT, ITS GIVEN TO BE RECIEVED!

Well, like Catelynn is 1 to talk about someone else’s mother getting “out of line” with anyone, when she has 1 of the most “out of line” mothers I have ever seen in my life!!

Jenelle is lucky that her mom does everything that she does! Like Barbara was saying, she’s not the 1 who made the choice to raise another kid while in her 50s! She does it because she knows if she didn’t, then he would most likely be neglected & probably end up being taken by the State & put into foster care!! I mean, Jenelle couldn’t even get up to watch him for a few minutes while her mom went to pay a bill!! Plus, every time she has left to run off with Los- or um, Kieff-er, how could she possibly say that was not her putting him as being more important to her than Jace?

Jenelle is such an idiot! How dare she say her mom makes everything about her! Barbara was only saying she wants Jenelle to be part of her sons life and jenelle blows up cause she knows she is wrong. The sad thing is that jenelle is to selfish to see that jace is watching her and by the time she decides to be a mother hes not going to want her. But hey at least she had her fun with those losers and weed she traded Jace for.

Everyone keeps saying Barbara needs to pick her battles and learn when to intervene, maybe you missed the episode where Jenelle chose to hand over her son to her making Barbara responsible for Jace. Its up to her now to make sure hes cared for. Jenelle treats her mom like crap. Barbara gave her way more chances than she deserves and jenelle never fails to F it up. Ive yet to see Jenelle say thank you for doing my job so my son didnt end up in foster care with strangers and cleaning up my mess. Barbara tries to let her be involved and care for Jace and Jenelle throws a tantrum like a 2 yr old cause she has to get up. She should be thankful shes still allowed in Barbaras house.

I think that Jenelle’s mom is just like my mom is when I first had my son Tyson….I don’t have a relationship with her because she always critized me for everything I did for my son….

Are you serious with that heading? Though Barbara can be overbearing, jenelle is waaaay too disrespectful to her mother. I would have slapped Jenelle into tomorrow if she ever, ever spoke to me that way. I hate to go there. But it seems this level of disrespect would never really happen in a primarily black run household. As a person of color, you just do not speak to your parents that way. However, I do recall a white girlfriend of mine in high school being as disrespectful as Jenelle is to Barbara. Barbara clearly loves her daughter though Jenelle is no cakewalk to love. Barbara is always there to rescue her though she, Jenelle, hardly deserves it. For all of Jenelle’s whining, I have yet to see a single tear in her eye. She tells her loser dog friend, Keifer, that she’s been crying all day though her eyes are drier than the Sahara desert. But please do not blame Barbara for Jenelle’s horrible personality.

Although the fighting is ridiculous, viewers have to realize that Barbara has been putting up with Jenelle’s behavior for YEARS. This isn’t just something that fell in her lap when she had the baby. Obviously Barbara has had no choice but to step up and take responsibility for the baby. How can she trust if Jenelle is truly going to care for him? We’ve seen in episodes where she’s just walked out of the house without permission to leave and not being back for her son in time when her mom needed to go to work. Yes, the baby is Jenelle’s responsibility but her mom is a wise woman for not trusting that she will make the right choice (how many times has she had a lapse in judgement or muddled her priorities?). The entire time throughout the show she spends minimal time with Jase. Compared to the other mothers, she was without her child at least 75% of the time. I wish the best for her and hope that she can gain back custody and hope she works on being a more present mother. Until then, she needs help and coaching and I can’t blame her mom for being irritated that she doesn’t see it as a priority.

As far as Catelynn is concerned, she is such a mild-mannered person and I highly doubt that she was bashing on Jenelle’s mom. I am astounded at Catelynn and her mother’s relationship. Catelynn’s mother will explode on her out of the blue for no apparent reason and Catelynn just calmly takes it. I think Catelynn is simply reaching out to her because she understands how Jenelle feels – not that she thinks that Jenelle is right over Barbara. I have to give Catelynn and Tyler props. I would never be able to give my children up for adoption, no matter how old I was. And they would have been amazing teen parents… But their living situation and their parents would have prevented them from having an ideal family situation. It disgusts me that they rag on them for choosing adoption when they are probably the primary reason they both knew keeping the child would not be ideal! I would not want my children around Catelynn’s mom’s mouth… And honestly, they both look and live like trailer trash – being in and out of prison and the nasty things that come out of their mouths even in front of Catelynn’s little brother. Their lifestyle disgusts me and I completely feel for Catelynn & Tyler because they are NOT a product of their home environment

Barbara seems like she really has good intentions, but needs to pick her battles. I just hope the best for them all.

I think Jenelle’s mom needs to work on not arguing with her teenage daughter. We can see that she only wants whats best for Jenelle and Jace, she just needs to work on ways to cope with her anger instead of yelling at her daughter, adding fuel to the fire.

I agree. And (although I might be wrong) from seeing the last couple episodes on the second season, I think this is what Barbara is trying to do. She hasn’t really been yelling at Jenelle during those two episodes.

But this is still the beginning of the season…I don’t know. Wait-and-see thing, I guess. :I

Both Barbara and Jenelle have a lot of things they need to get sorted out. One of the main things I noticed while watching the show, though, was how often Barbara contradicted herself. All she ever did was yell at Jenelle about how she wasn’t a good mother and that she never took care of Jace, but even when Jenelle would try to do something for Jace Barbara wouldn’t even let her go near him. There was one episode particularly when Jenelle picked Jace up to go change him, and Barbara just yanked him out of Jenelle’s hands and was just like “I’ll do it” in a b*tchy tone. If I remember correctly, in the same episode Jenelle wanted to feed Jace but again Barbara wouldn’t let her. I think that Barbara needs to learn the difference between when it’s the right time to intervene and when it simply isn’t necessary. Not allowing Jenelle take care of her son just contributes to the problem of Jenelle not stepping up to the plate, since she’s just so used to Barbara snatching Jace away and doing everything. If she wants Jenelle to step it up and take care of her son, then she needs to back off a little bit. Jace is ultimately supposed to be Jenelle’s responsibility, and by getting too involved that responsibility slowly starts landing on Barbara’s shoulders.

My heart goes out to both Jenelle and her mother. I think they both need to go for counseling. They have some unresolved underlying issues that need to be addressed. After they have gone this route then I think they will be able to communicate better and Jenelle will have a better sense of self worth. She always looks so sad and lost. Barbara seems to have a look of “I don’t know what to do or how to get my point across to Jenelle”.

Also in regards to Catelynn and Tyler God bless both of you for making the selfless decision to give your daughter up for addoption. If more people would have the courage you two did, we may not see so many horrible head lines of babies being brutally murdered because their parent(s) couldn’t deal.

Catelynn needs to shut the f*** up. What does she know about taking care of a kid? She gave her kid up for adoption. If not for Barbara Jace would be in foster care or worse because Jenelle is a lowlife who puts her loser boyfriend before her kid. Barb yells too much but come on, imagine how much stress she is under. She is nearly 60 years old and has to raise her grandson plus put up with her crazy daughter who can’t stop acting like an animal and getting arrested. We have seen her refuse to even get up out of bed and babysit her own kid, walk out on Jace to go be with Kieffer, seriously. I don’t know how Barb stands to be around Jenelle, and I feel sorry for her and not at all sorry for Jenelle who brought a kid into her messed up life. Catelynn needs to tell people to feel for Barb and Jace, not Jenelle.

I think Barbara is trying to be a good mom but just does not know how to do it. She needs some help learning how to communicate better with Jenelle–particularly in front of Jace. I am sure Jenelle is very difficult to deal with but Barbara needs to detach from her-like when she says Jenelle can never come back home –she should mean it or not say it at all. Jace should not be around all the yelling and pushing.

Without Barbra who knows where Janelle and Jace would be right now. Homeless? Living in a crackhouse? I think her mom is the best thing that ever happened to her and Jace.

I think jenelle has the worst attitude ever. The way she treats her mom and friends is a perfect example. I think Barbara is forced to act the way she does because jenelle get in her face, as seen in the first season. Catelynn shouldn’t be talking cause her mother is no angel herself.

I think Barbara makes everything so much harder for everyone. I mean, I think it’s great that she’s taken care of Jace, but somehow I feel like she’s been trying to keep him and Jenelle apart. I think a lot of what Jenelle has been doing comes from her being upset and frustrated with Barbara, as a way of getting things out of her system… So maybe, if they found a way to deal with things in a positive manner, like no yelling, or big outburst, focus on what they both do well, then maybe Jenelle could get back on track faster. I think they both love eachother a lot, but BArbara never really knew how to show Jenelle that and in turn, Jenelle never really learned how to act to show that.
