Leah Calvert has been a little overwhelmed of late, what with taking care of three young daughters (one of whom has special needs) while her pipe-liner hubby Jeremy Calvert is gone much of the time for work. She has stress out the wazoo these days, and she's been trying to find the best way to manage it.
After the fail-fest of trying meds, this Teen Mom 2 star has decided to get some real help by seeing a behavioral counselor. In a sneak peek clip for next week's episode, we're treated to a scene of Leah losing it with her kids while trying to Skype with a friend, and talking about how she wants to see someone to learn how to manage her kids better, and not saddle them with heaps of psychological damage.
Leah is trying to talk with her bestie Kayla via the powers of the Internet when Aleeah almost knocks her laptop off her lap. Leah yells at her to stop, Aleeah runs away shrieking, and then Leah winds up feeling like a bad mom, but she's so stressed out she doesn't know what to do.
"I hate having to get like that," she says to Kayla. "Do you think that's mean? I think I'm gonna go to a behavioral counselor, because it's not that I don't know how to correct my kid, but I was corrected really hard when I was a kid. I don't want my kids scared of me, but I want them to listen to me at the same time."
Parenting is rough, man, especially when you're doing it by yourself as much as Leah is. Hopefully she found someone to talk to about modifying her behavior to deal with her stress better, but honestly, we already think she's a pretty great mom. Maybe she just needs a professional to tell her she's doing just fine.
Do you think Leah needs therapy for behavior modification?
