I agree 100 percent with the GOMI policy of non-involvement with Blogger's personal lives, so yeah, anyone even thinking of contacting CPS or whatever over Jenna or any other blogger needs to f**king stop.

That being said, can we NOT say shit like emotional abuse isn't "real" abuse? Obviously it's not as easy or black and white to find and take care of, nor does it put a child in the kind of imminent danger that physical abuse does, but it's crappy to minimize the trauma of being abused by saying it's not "real" unless someone is physically hurting you.

I agree. T1 is absolutely being abused through neglect and how Jenna treats him and what she says to him. Emotional abuse is every bit as traumatic as physical abuse for the child, and it will affect him as he grows up into adulthood. Yes, she isn't doing anything that would warrant a CPS visit, and GOMIers should not report things based on what we read. From the outside, Jenna's home would not raise any suspicions with authorities. The children have a clean house, healthy food, adequate clothing, toys and books, etc. Yes, some kids have it much worse. But he is not in a happy home with an adult who loves and cares for him, and that, to me, is neglectful and abusive.

 

Plus, she has said that she doesn't spank because she, "doesn't think she'd be able to stop." That leads me to think that she may have spanked before and had it go out of control, or that she has feelings of wanting to hit T1, but knows enough that that is crossing a line into physical abuse.

It's the Powerpoint presentation she created to convince TH to marry her, since he wasn't attracted to her and didn't even really want to date her. I wish I was kidding, but unfortunately am not.

Perhaps I phrased that poorly. I shouldn't get to say what is and is not 'actual abuse' and I guess people who know her can report whatever they feel is necessary. We, as strangers on the internet, should stay the f**k out of it. And, while, yes leaving your child in a bathroom for 12 hours (if that indeed happened, as we only have her word to go on and it's entirely possible this whole blog is one big fiction) is probably neglectful it does not, in my opinion, warrant action by cps. 

My best friend called me crying one day because she put her 2 year old daughter in her room and closed the door because she was afraid she was going to get physical with her. Frankly, Jenna having the self-awareness to know that she inclines toward excessive spanking and won't start for fear she won't stop is about the only self-aware thing I've seen from her.

Again, I'm not saying she's not an asshole (because she is) and a shitty parent (because she is).

I'd be interested to see what Jenna considers "spoiling" by the grandparents to be. Love and attention, maybe?

Well, she said his Polish grandparents "spoiled" him when they bought him a cute kid sized chair and let him watch cartoons while sitting in it, so….yeah.

I had never read her blog before the award… And this f**king woman.. This dead behind the eyes woman scares me.

As far as spoiling, I saw her note that the bottle/wipe warmers weren't for them because they didn't want T1 to "get used to it." It wasn't said in a "maybe it's not necessary" kind of way, but this b***hy "this kid ain't gonna get spoiled" way.

Not sure if the picture was on Instagram or where. It's a picture of her shaking her hair, all blurry and streaky. Se said it's what she imagines T1 sees when she's upset with him. Anyone remember that? I always thought it was a really strange thing to post/say.

Yeah, it was instagram. Here's her caption for it: "Dec 13: {toss} For 2013 I want to toss my short temper with my kids. If their behavior is bad, I need to correct it, not lose it. Also I need to take more mommy time-outs and more deep breaths. I imagine my face here is as scary as the one T1 sees when I lose my cool with him. #weverb12"

 

Then her mom said that she should train T1 like a puppy.

 

It's weird that she said "my kids" and "their," because T2 wasn't born yet. Maybe she was anticipating that she'd resent T2 as well?

I'm sure this has been discussed to death, but I don't really understand how this could possibly convince anyone to not run as far and as fast away from someone as possible, much less marry them! I can't imagine someone doing anything but this:
