During the most recent episode of Teen Mom OG, fans watched as Bentley, the son of Maci Bookout and Ryan Edwards, attended his first counseling session in hopes of eventually attending with Ryan to mend their relationship.
Maci followed up with Bentley’s therapist to find out how the session went and was heartbroken to hear his feedback. The therapist mentioned that Bentley felt neglected by his father and those words broke Maci’s heart.
Bentley and Ryan’s relationship hasn’t always been great and for a while now, the Edwards family has placed blame on Maci and claimed that she was a “trigger” for Ryan.
Jen and Larry Edwards, Ryan’s parents, discussed their relationship with Ryan. Jen became emotional as they talked about the pressure they’ve put on him to be more involved with Bentley in the past when he was incapable of taking care of himself.
Fans became outraged, however, when Larry mentioned a conversation he had with Bentley. In response, fans blasted Jen and Larry and think Maci should remove Bentley from the show to protect him.

Now that Bentley is a little older, he’s started to communicate what he needs and wants and one of those desires is to fix the relationship with his father through counseling.
