Teen Mom 2 star Jade Cline and her on-and-off boyfriend, Sean Austin, came under fire when fans of the show said the way they parent their daughter, Kloie, is “hard to watch.”
Jade and her baby daddy Sean, who have a tumultuous relationship history, share one daughter, Kloie, 3.
Most of Jade’s storyline this season has revolved around her Brazilian butt lift and liposuction surgery.
Once Jade was able to return home and finish recovering there, she was forced to spend a lot of time with Sean and Kloie.
Jade and Sean are often seen arguing in their Teen Mom 2 scenes, and a lot of the time, in front of Kloie.
Jade and Sean’s treatment of Kloie alarmed Teen Mom 2 fans
On the latest episode of Teen Mom 2, Jade and Sean’s seemingly endless arguments continued, and viewers watched as the two bickered over just about everything.
At one point, Jade and Sean were arguing about how to discipline Kloie, and things escalated, prompting Teen Mom 2 fans to speak out.
In a Reddit thread titled, “The way Sean & Jade treat [Kloie],” one Teen Mom 2 fan wrote, “Watching the way they’re always either ignoring her or snapping on her/yelling breaks my heart! She’s such a good toddler who obviously needs proper guidance and love. I can’t handle it.. anyone else bothered by this?”
“I hate they way the talk to her and treat her. She’s a toddler and they treat her worse than a pet should be treated,” commented one fan of Teen Mom 2 on the thread.
Another Reddit user pointed out the way that Sean refers to Kloie, saying, “Sean calls her DUDE….”
After this week’s episode, one fan of Teen Mom 2 was “so upset” about the way Jade and Sean treated three-year-old Kloie.
Teen Mom 2 fans called out Jade and Sean for their parenting
“I was so upset watching last night’s episode that I immediately came to this sub to vent. Jade and Sean are so ill-equipped to parent. It terrifies me that they act this way while filming… imagine how bad it is when they’re not,” the fan commented.
They added, “The screaming, the expectations for her to act like a grown-up, the meltdowns they’re throwing about her normal toddler behavior… all of it is just awful.”
Another Reddit user commented on the thread, “They are BOTH cognizant of the cameras… and are angry at how they will be portrayed. Sooo, that tells me when cameras aren’t around, it must be pretty chaotic. The little girls room is like a dungeon, and she spends a TON of time there. They both are just killing time until they can put her to bed.”
Jade and Sean’s treatment of Kloie was ‘hard to watch’
Another fan of the show commented, “They’re the worst parents currently on the show by far. She’s just a hassle and all they do is yell at her and shut her down.”
They continued, “She’s learning her feelings don’t matter and if she does have feelings she’s a brat and not ‘nice’ and not ‘good’. Actually so hard to watch,” and another Reddit user agreed, saying, “Exactly. It’s extremely hard to watch!”
Other fans of Teen Mom 2 have spoken out recently, and feel that Jade only stays with Sean because she’s afraid of being alone and needs the help. Jade didn’t get the help she was expecting after surgery, and her parents disappeared for over three hours supposedly trying to fill her prescription for pain medication.
After the shocking ordeal with Jade’s parents after her surgery, Jade made the decision to cut them out of her life, telling her fans that she “made some hard decisions.”
Luckily for Jade, her friend and fellow castmate, Briana DeJesus, swooped in and saved the day by allowing Jade to recover at her house.
Teen Mom 2 airs on Tuesdays at 8/7c on MTV.
