Amber has poor impulse control, she never thinks things threw before reacting.
I think Gary enjoys provoking her lack of emotional control and if he cant help and support her then he needs to get out of her life.
Good luck Amber, I believe if you got honest with yourself and proper therapy you will do fine in life.
Stop blaming others for losing Leah, ie..you lost her because people vandalized your car etc…You lost Leah because of domestic violence and drug use.
Its not to late to have Leah back and have a good life with her Amber!

Maybe jail is what it will take for her to find herself. Before she can do, or be any good for anyone else.. She has to get healthy and get herself back on track with her priorities. I don’t think badly of her what so ever. Everyone has their faults and no one should be judged by them. Only learn from them. I pray that she realizes she made the decision she did for a reason. Obviously even though she regrets choosing jail over rehab… she was meant to go to jail for a reason. A far greater purpose than what rehab could have done for her. She’s already been there and done that. It’s obviously not the answer. Maybe one day in the future when she has her mind set and is more focused rehab may be the answer. Right now though I think she’s right where she needs to be to prepare for the changes in her life that are about to take place. Life goes on with or with out you. It’s up to you to what the outcome will be.

Gary is by far the better parent. Amber is not fit for parenthood or, for that matter, life in general society. Everything with Amber is someone else’s fault and just another reason for her to turn on her tear ducts to get sympathy from others.

Give up parental rights no child support, doesnt have to deal with gary… Now gary needs to give up hiis rights so leah can have a better life. She needs structure, manners, guidance, discipline, and most important… real love. Also a better extended family.

I have been watching this series since it first aired and i have to agree with you on Gary giving up his rights.. He has done nothing for Leah to give her the life she does deserve to have. She would be better of with another family member that has no close connection or relation to Gary or to Amber. Leah deserves to get what she can out of this life that Amber and Gary have screwed up this far… Why let it go any farther?

Jackie you are wrong, and I bet not even a parent. We are talking about humans not a litter of puppies. Get real lady. We dont just give up 3 year old kids for adoption, because we have some problems, one day you will be judged as harshly as you judged these people.

She has psycological issues it’s clear, but why bash her? She had a rough life growing up and making fun of how bad a parent she is will not help the situation. Gary a better parent for her? Really? Leahs best option is to have someone who is there for her and not pawning her off to his mother every chance he gets to go “out of town.” He uses their kid as a pawn in their own messed up relationship. It’s obvious they both have a lot of growing up to do and it only proves the point that KIDS should not be having KIDS.

So because you saw on a tv show that he has gone out of town at times, that makes him a bad dad? huh? Every single parent needs to get away to maintain sanity and happiness FOR the child. You don’t know how often his mom has watched her. If ANYTHING on the show, you see Gary being a kind dad to his daughter

I think it’s against Indiana state law for a parent to give up legal rights unless there’s someone else who qualifies to take over those rights. In this case, they would both have to sign their rights over to someone else or Gary would have had to be married to someone else for a minimum of a year and that person would have to be willing to adopt. She can make a choice to not enforce her rights, but she still has legal responsibilities.

Clearly, dad is the better parent. Leah should remain with him until she is old enough to leave the nest.
Amber has shown herself to be a horrible parent with a drug problem and is an abuser of men. She belongs in prison and if she’s “depressed”…oh dear, oh my, how sad. She gets no more sympathy from me than she would any other convicted criminal.

The girl has obvious mental issues and should be medically/psychologically evaluated and properly treated for whatever she has. Hopefully while in jail she will receive the right kind of councelling and gets the help that she clearly needs. I sincerely hope she uses this time to reflect on things and chooses to move forward with her life, rather than dwelling on the past and blaming other’s for her problems. She needs to be made aware that only SHE can change her life for the better…not anyone else. However she needs to start by making the right choices for herself, instead of trying to “escape” by using mind altering substances and going off on rants all the time. Once she comes to the realization that she’s her own worst enemy and decides to change her counterproductive way of thinking, she will be able to get her life back on track and start repairing her relationship with her daughter.

Brendah, settle down with the Dr. Phil speech and when you become a adult with some real problems in life, you should reread your cutesy post over and see if it makes any sense at all to you.

She couldn’t stay off drugs and do what she was told to do by the judge. She would of ended up right where she is anyways. If she gets her head together while she is in jail. Then maybe she might be a good mother to Leah. At lest so will be clean when she gets out. Who knows she might get out on good behavior. If she can keep from fighting while she is in there.
