Teen Mom Family Reunion star Amber Portwood received support from her castmates after she dubbed herself a bad mom.
During the second episode of TMFR, the moms’ life coach, Dr. Cheyenne Bryant, had them participate in an exercise by admitting something about themselves of which they’re proud. If the other moms could relate to their affirmation, they were asked to stand up.
Briana DeJesus started the exercise by standing up and confessing that she was strong. For Leah Messer’s turn, she told the group that she’s proud of the fact she’s compassionate.

When it was Maci Bookout’s turn to state her affirmation, she told the group, “I’m a good mom.”
Amber chose to stay seated during the exercise while the rest of her castmates stood up, relating that they, too, were good moms. Amber told the group, “Sometimes I just don’t feel like I am a mom.”
When the other moms noticed that Amber remained seated, they eventually encouraged her to stand up and join the other moms.
Teen Mom shared a clip from the scene on their official Instagram page where TMFR viewers and cast members showed up in the comments to show their support for Amber.
