Viewers have witnessed Kail’s difficult home life since way back when her 16 and pregnant episode aired. There we saw her fly out to Texas to meet her father for the first time (remember him, the guy that padlocked the fridge before she arrived in case she decided to help herself to his meat. What a winner.). This is the first and only time she’s had contact with her dad, in fact she no longer refers to him as that, now calling him ‘sperm doner’.
Things weren’t much better with her mother. On sixteen and pregnant we saw her choose her boyfriend over her pregnant teenage daughter time and time again. The pattern continued when she had to move back home on teen mom 2, moving out again within months due to another boyfriend her mother found to be more important then Kail and Issac. The issues continue this season, when her mother tries to see Issac behind Kails’ back. The Teen Mom recently opened up to fans, trying to explain why the relationship is where its at today.
Put yourself in my shoes for one second.
Imagine yourself growing up with a “parent” struggling with addiction, boyfriend hopping & can’t hold a steady job. Since I was 8 years old I was the parent. I’ve forgiven my mom for not being there, but I’ve also become stronger. Strong enough to know when I need to leave certain people out of my life. I’ve already forgiven my mother for what has already been done. But if I were to have a relationship with her, how many more times would I have to be hurt & let down & forgive her again, and again?
Not to forget, I am not a true parent now. I have a child of my own. I can’t allow my son to watch me stress, worry, cry & fight with my mom. That’s not an example I want to set for him. I’ve been through hell & back with my mom, no need to drag my son through it again.
Anyhow, the second anniversary of not speaking to my mom is coming up, that’s why I posted the pic of the nail polish. Do I miss Suzi? No. But I do miss the idea of having her finally push through and be there for me.
Kailyn’s statement shows that there is far more happened behind the scenes then what we’ve seen on the show. She now focuses on leaving her family in the past, and making her own with little Issac and fiance Javi. She is also very close to Javi’s family which is nice for her, and has plenty of supportive friends. Who knows if Kail will reconcile with her parents in the future. Right now she’s happy with life as it is.
DO YOU FEEL FOR KAILYN, HAVING NO FAMILY OF HER OWN? DO YOU THINK HER STRUGGLES ARE GREATER, NOT HAVING THE FAMILY SUPPORT THE OTHER TEEN MOMS DO?
