Three years after Jenelle Evans gave custody of son Jace to Barbara Evans, the mother and daughter continue to clash over parenting decisions — except, this time, Jenelle’s the one who seems to be making good points.
In a sneak peek for next week’s episode of Teen Mom 2, Barbara and Jenelle get into a very heated argument about how to best respond to Jace’s outbursts.
“Guess what Jace tells me? ‘Yes, I broke Meme’s table because I was mad, so I kicked it,’” Jenelle said. “He will admit to me what he does wrong because he knows I’m not going to yell and scream at his face. You, you scream and yell at him.”
After Barbara hollered back “Oh my God! Jenelle, shut up,” Jenelle continued her thought…
“So then he feels the need to yell at you,” Jenelle said.
“You don’t live here,” Barbara fired back. “You never raised him. Don’t tell me what to do.”
By this point it was obvious the ladies weren’t going to get through to each other, but Jenelle continued trying to explain she understood why Jace was acting the way he was because she used to feel the same.
“When you used to yell at me, I would lie to you because I didn’t want to get yelled at,” Jenelle said. “But when he comes to me with his problems, I speak and talk to him rationally. I don’t yell and jump down his throat like you do.”
At the end, Barbara was so fed up that she told Jenelle to take Jace and leave. In the time since, the ladies seem to be on slightly more stable ground and were both present at the NYC reunion last week. Let’s hope Dr. Drew helped them talk through their issues.
Teen Mom 2 airs on MTV on Wednesdays at 10/9c.
