Kayla's doctor stresses the importance of a healthy diet.
I feel so sorry for Kayle for having the baddest mother ever. Even knowing that her daughter doesn't like to eat because she's afraid to gain weight (that could've affect the baby) and still not support her, means that she don't have a heart. If she really love her daughter she would've support her since day 1. Her boyfriend is in a position first than her own daughter. That's f******* up. She only cares of herself and her boyfriend. I hope her boyfriend cheat on her, that's what she disorve. She's not a mom, she's a woman.
Kayle you are a great mom. Keep it like that and you are a very strong teenage girl.
I have never cry while watching 16 n pregnant, but with kayla episode, I actually cried, what kind of mom is Deb!, a useless mother, all she thinks is herself, very selfish, not even worth to call her mother. Shame on you Deb!, you're the worst of the worst mom, if they are calling mom u did not fit to be call a mom!!!Kayla, you're so strong, and dedicated. you shouldn't have broke up with ur boyfriend, cos he was very supportive n caring! I hope n pray u have a wonderful life full of prosperity, n wisdom. Goodluck
Couldn't agree with you more. It is so sad... I also hope that MTV has or will do something to help this poor girl. I just cannot understand how her mother can do that do her only daughter... how she can just abandon her, not help her with anything financially or emotionally and THEN have the nerve to tell her daughter that her boyfriend, her ONLY support system in the world for everything she needs, has to pay rent! And then make them pay rent and not even uphold the home or pay the bills! It makes me so unbelievably sick and I'm glad to see so many other viewers feel the same.
I am so disgusted and angered by Kayla's mother. I feel so incredibly bad for Kayla, the poor girl is still just a kid herself and has no idea really how to take care of a newborn (especially at first) and yet her mother just leaves her on her own. I am dumb-founded. I really feel that this woman is one of the worst mothers I have ever seen and I cannot even believe how she could do that to her only child, especially her child who is pregnant WITH AN EATING DISORDER!! Her mother obviously knows nothing about her daughter and I cannot believe that she thinks she could leave her pregnant daughter to take care of herself when she has an eating disorder and barely knows how to care for herself. Thank god for her boyfriend (I cannot believe she broke up with him, she was SO lucky to have him). It literally made me cry seeing the way her mother treated her and seeing her lack of caring and love for her only child, especially when that child needs her the most. It is truly heartbreaking. I just wanted to slap her mother. I could tell that all she cared about was herself and being with her boyfriend. That was especially obvious when her daughter is practically begging for her help and support and she just sits there and tells her "I tried". We all could see that you DID NOT TRY AT ALL, Deb! We can all see that you just don't care about your daughter or her well-being. It is so sad and aggravating! It's sickening to me and I'm just glad to say that Kayla WILL NEVER be that kind of mom. Ugghh... it makes me so angry and sad for her and I truly hope that it will get better for Kayla. I honestly cannot believe she broke up with Mike, since she had depended on him for so much and he was such a good boyfriend and dad. Anyway, Kayla's mother needs to wake the **** up and realize that it's not: your daughter is already 17 and so doesn't need your help, it's: your daughter is ONLY 17 and still desperately needs your help and support. Best of luck to you Kayla, you are a very strong person and with a mother like that it's not wonder you have an eating disorder, you are starving for her attention! Anyway, stay strong, you are doing a great job and will be a great mother, but don't allow those eating disorder voices to control you, you are a beautiful person and you deserve to be healthy, so take care of yourself! Not just for you, but for your baby who depends on you. We, as your fans, are all behind you and support you and you are not alone in feeling like your mother should be there for you more, we can all clearly see how much you need her, and thus how much she needs to be there for you. There is something terribly wrong with a mother who will not help their child when they're in need, when they're trying to care for their own child and the heat doesn't even work in that mother's house, as house for which their child pays rent to live in. Anyway, as I said best of luck to you Kayla, stay strong and if your mother still will not be there for you then I hate to say it but your better off without her, your better off learning to be strong now, than trying to hold on for longer and just being let down again and again. You have a beautiful child and you're a beautiful mother, I know you will make it. Just stay strong and keep yourself, and your child, healthy!
I feel soo bad for Kayla and am disgusted with her mother's behavior,-her selfishness, total lack of support and emotional and financial abandonment. What is WRONG with this woman!!???? I believe she was a teen mom herself and has personal knowledge of how difficult that situation is. As a mother how can she justify her actions?? I've seen alley cats demonstrate better mothering skills!!!! I watched this episode and my heart broke for Kayla and then watched the next episode with Izabella...night and day!!! Lucky Izabella has the most wonderfully loving, supportive and understanding parents any child could hope for which made my heart break even more for Kayla. It makes me wish that I were in a position to offer that young woman a home and love and help...make it possible for her to graduate high school and continue on to college. I hope MTV can do something for her...maybe a scholarship or a fund raiser to get her on her way...her mother is an embarassment and useless and should be ashamed of herself!!! There is NO excuse for her actions...abandoning her daughter and grandson in favor of her "boyfriend"...unbelievable...and then dropping by to ask Kayla to help her with a diet plan!!!??? She is a total waste of oxygen!!!! Kayla, stay strong and seek help in any and every way you can...there is assistance available...do not abandon your dream of college and your nursing degree...prove to yourself and your worthless mother that you have what it takes and deserve to live a good life...God Bless You...you are in my prayers...
kaylas mother is truly discusting. at least mike was trying to help but she made it impossible. what kind of mother does those things to their own child.its sad for preston. what kind of chance does he have?
This was the hardest to watch. I felt so bad for her. Just so sad. I hope her mother watches this show and realizes how horrible she treats her daughter. So sad!
Kayla is doing really well to have no support. Her mom is awul and cruel. Obviously Kayla is going to defend her and always forgive her but I can't believe this mother's behavior!
Kayla , your mother should be a ashamed of herself b/c you should have that support that you need. Go back to school and be that nurse. I have friends, who are single parents who made it big. Don't ever starve yourself mama, that's not good!
I was sad to learn that too.
I asked the same question. In fact, I gasped when she said that! I can't imagine not cooking for my kids! I cannot even relate on the same level!
Now you know why Kayla ended up pregnant. In all fairness to her, if I had a mom like that, I would probably do the same thing....oh wait...I do and I did. Hang in there Kayla! It does get better!
I can't believe she broke up with Mike! I thought they were doing great together :(
I hope Kayla's mother reads these comments. As I watched the show I too felt like there were some "addiction " issues or domestic abuse issues with her mother. Her lifeless/ no affect emotions and facial expressions were sickening. I was mostly disgusting with her charging rent. I fully agree that she should not enable her daughter, however she should want her to graduate and keeping her boyfriend at work so he cannot help watch the baby thus Kayla must and cannot do school work is just ridiculous. Maybe there is some mental health issues in here also, as she almost seems like she sets her daughter up to fail, like a weird jealousy thing. So she is basically living at her boyfriends home, and maybe he is a low life and the mother is having to pay bills there so she needs her daughters boyfriend to pay at her trailer home????? Also, where is county funding here??? Isn't there a WIC program to help with formula and other state benefits to help with child care???? These two should have been able to get into low income, at least Kayla and the baby...and there is no way she would have had to pay $300, as the rent is income-based. Her good for nothing mother should have known some of these avenues since she was a young mother also. I hope she is embarrassed after she reads these comments, and if she isn't, there clearly is other issue with her, narcisist perhaps???? I hope Kayla stays strong and doesn't repeat her mother's patterns. Ugggh, I am just so irritated with her mother!! I really think her boyfriend, addiction, and mental health are all key issues. Her mother looks rough and much older than her boyfriend, not that that matters, but her behavior is just so odd. I think she is a pill popper. I also hope she comments to her behavior in the upcoming episodes.
I feel for all of these teen moms. I now that they made their own choices and they have to live with the consequences good or bad. I have to say that Mike seems like he is an outstanding and upstanding young father. Probably one of the best one's I have seen on the shows thus far. He is all about his child and his girlfriend. The mother breaks my heart she reminds me of my mother, although I was not a teen mom. The mother seems as though she is trying to let go of her daughter so she can keep hold of her own youth. The fact that she is a grandmother at such a young age has to be shocking, but she shouldn't act this way toward her daughter. She doesn't keep to her word on anything which is disgusting to me. This young mother needs her mother and there is no reason she should be tortured for her actions of being a teen mom. By no means am I stating that she deserves an award, but she does deserve her mothers support, guidance, and love. The mother is so blind and so hurtful and so self consumed that she asked the daughter to diet with her or do a work out regiment? WsUWT? Not even taking her daughters health into consideration. I pray that the mother sees the error of her ways before it is too late to turn back. You can't take back mistakes, but you can do your best not to make them.
Kayla's mom is a horrible and selfish witch. Why would you let MTV film your daughter's experience as a teen mom and show the world how unsupportive and neglectful you are acting towards your child and grandson?
I couldn't believe it when she told Kayla to go lay back down after Kayla told her that she was leaking fluid. Then, she didn't even go to the hospital with her to get checked out. Her mother totally checked out on her daughter when she needed and needs her the most.
No support for Kayla getting her high school diploma, charging them more rent that Kayla's boyfriend was even making. She shouldn't have charged them any rent. The boyfriend was already paying all of the baby, Kayla, and his expenses. The mom would have had to pay the rent and utilities whether or not her daughter's boyfriend lived with them or not and would have had to take care of her daughter and grandson's food & clothing. She should have been happy that the boy hung around and took care of his responsibilities and then some. He did more emotionally and financially for Kayla and the baby than the stupid useless Grandmother did. The only thing the mom did was pay a portion of the rent and utilities. The mom should be ashamed of herself and should have worried more about her daughter's health and emotional well-being, than about running off to be with her own boyfriend doing whatever they were doing.
A parent is supposed to want more for her children than herself, instead of running out every chance she got and taking care of her own selfish needs. She is responsible for her daughter and grandson, until her daughter turns 18. A 16 or 17 year old is not legally or emotionally mature enough to be left alone to take care of herself when she is anorexic, pregnant, or after she has had the baby.
The mom needs some sense and responsibility knocked back into her and if not that, she needs to take some parenting classes to learn how to be a responsible and caring parent.
It seems to me that this new boyfriend her mother has may have brought drugs into her life, and not marijuana either. There has to be a reason why everything changed so suddenly when he came into the picture. She may have a drug issue and as we all know an addict will give up many things for a high and do unspeakable things for money and Hmm things start getting shut off like the heat in dead of winter while your 2 month old grandson is residing in the home. Sounds like drug abuse to me, I've seen it before and it this looks very familiar. Maybe I'm just looking for an excuse because I can't believe this woman!!!
From reading the other comments that were made about Kayla's selfish mother, I'm sure I was not the only one cursing at the T.V. while watching her episode. My heart breaks for Kayla and Preston as well. She's not even my daughter and I would do anything I could to help If it was within my power. I treat my pets better than she treats her own flesh and blood. You would think she of all people would understand how difficult this time is for Kayla since she was a teen mom herself. So many empty promises and not once did I ever hear her say sorry for letting her daughter down numerous times during the show. Can you imagine how she treats her off camera? I was 24 when I had my first child and still was so afraid and in need of guidance. I would like to say a few things to this woman that she would not soon forget. I can't remember the last time I was so disgusted!!!!! I have to give it to Kayla for handling her mother so well and being such a mature girl. The love she and Preston share will get her through times she otherwise could not endure. Worst Mother Ever Award for Kayla's mom, that's for sure!!!! If there is any way to get help to this girl please let us know.
