Jenelle Evans doesn't have the best reputation when it comes to parenting her son Jace. After getting pregnant at 16, the Teen Mom 2 star flitted in and out of her baby's life in between a string of nasty boyfriends, multiple arrests, and drug charges. She even signed over custody to her mom Barbara Evans when Jace was a baby to avoid responsibility.
Now Jenelle seems to be getting her act cleaned up, spending the weekends with Jace, and preparing for the rapidly approaching arrival of her second son Kaiser with boyfriend Nathan Griffith in June. But has she gotten this mom thing finally figured out? The reality star posted a video on Instagram over the weekend, calling Jace names!
In the video captioned, "Many faces of Jace," Jenelle is straight-faced and calling her son "creepy" and that he "looks like a gremlin." Meanwhile, Jace can be seen making faces at the camera and giggling.
OK, obviously Jenelle is just having some fun with her boy making some funny faces, and Jace seems to be enjoying himself. But is it really a wise thing to do? There's a saying that one of the biggest lies around is "just kidding." Insulting your child should never be OK, even as a joke.
Meh, I think it's all good in this case. Jenelle isn't telling Jace he looks ugly (although someone in the comments does by posting, "Ugly kid," and later defending it with, "My opinion. Not all kids are cute."), she's just trying to get him to make creepy gremlin faces.
There is more than enough to judge about Jenelle Evans if you're going to judge her. Like wondering if she really will be a decent kind of mom this time around. But making creepy faces with her son probably isn't one of them.
Do you think Jenelle should tell Jace he looks like a gremlin?
