And the backwoods saga continues!!! So, I have heard from a reliable source that the man “Mama June” is reportedly dating, Mark McDaniel, was actually convicted for molesting her own daughter known as “Chickadee” on the show when she was just 8 years old. “Chickadee” now 20 years old and with a child of her own actually believed her mother when she first claimed to not be in a relationship with McDaniel, as she has taken to social media today to also claim to the public and her fans. But now after coming across factual evidence, “Chickadee” is singing a different tune and speaking out after the hurt of betrayal from her mother. TLC has reportedly reached out to the young lady and offered her counseling, but they are going to have a lot more to answer for as this story progresses.
As if people didn’t question the integrity of the “Boo Boo Household” before, NOW Mama June is entertaining the company of the family Chester. You know, Chester the Child Molester? I’m not sure why people are shocked by this information because let’s be honest, the show really mocks her parenting style. I personally never watched the show because I’ve never been in favor of laughing in someones face while making them believe you’re laughing with them, and not at them.
I used to feel sorry for Mama June, but in light of this new information I’m just plain disgusted. To find out that your significant other has molested a child should make you question your choice in partners. But to return to that partner after he/she has been convicted of the crime AND have young children of your own in the home makes you just as criminal as they are. Might as well put make up on them, dress them up like a grown woman, and serve them on platter. Yeah, I said that. I will not pass judgement on this mother for her child rearing techniques, but I will call for her to get a mental health evaluation for even wanting this Chester around her children. I understand that her excessive weight might come with self-esteem issues, but that’s no excuse for putting your children in danger and there’s no question that this man and his past are a danger to her children. I certainly see no end in sight to this story in near future and I wouldn’t be surprised if Child Protective Services gets involved. TLC would be wise to cancel the show. Especially if Mama June insists on defending this relationship as she has been. I’ve never understood a woman that chooses a man over her child and sure as hell don’t understand this one. Get it together Mama June!!!!
Ok, so the bag of blue meth is a bit excessive for a toy, but I still love Walter White. Is this a show that I sit down and enjoy with my children? Hell no. So do I want to see it in a store where I shop for my kids Christmas toys? Double Hell No. While I understand that Toy’s R Us sells a variety of toys there are some toys that just don’t promote a “Kid being a kid”. I can’t believe that the corporation is defending itself by releasing the statement, ‘The product packaging clearly notes that the items are intended for ages 15 and up’ and ‘are located in the adult action figure area of our stores’. Yeah, ok. So are you trying to tell my teenager that it’s ok to manufacture and sell meth now? Bad form Toy’s R Us. You need to leave this COLLECTIBLE doll to the Comic book stores and stop trying to do anything for a dollar. Seriously, I’m disappointed in you. This should have never been an issue, but I’m happy that you’ve decided to pull it from your selves.
Ever get stumped while helping your kids with their math homework. Well say GOODBYE to the days of hearing the age-old argument, “But that’s not how my teacher told me to do it!!!” and say HELLO to, “So what, I’m right, here’s the proof.”
Yes, I plan on downloading this one for my own continuing education as I’m currently struggling through a Pych Statistics Research course, but when the time comes, I will be blocking this from my kid’s phone and using it only on my own. Parents you might want to follow suit. I completely agree with naysayers against this products who believe that this will teach kids to cut corners and not learn the math processes on their own. And while we live in a world of computers that do all the hard work for us, there is no guarantee that the world will always work this way. So if your kid comes home and is suddenly a math rock star, you might want to check their phone for this app before throwing them a ticker tape parade.
Where were the outrage when I asked this question two years ago about putting toddlers in bikini’s and f-me pumps? Now that they’ve expanded this to include Halloween costumes someone wants speak out about it? It wasn’t cute then and it’s certainly not cute now. Where is the self-esteem level that we are setting for our girls? And why the in the hell is it so LOW??? Get it together parents. It’s bad enough that as adult women we can’t come up with Halloween costumes that don’t involve being sexy or slutty. Let’s try not to set the bar for our kids.
**Talking Point** Do you notice the difference between the boys costumes and the girls? What do you think about that?
