If someone said I had to sleep in a dog kennel, I'd call him a jerk too! I know he was joking, but I'm 100% over Dale. Those girls are old enough to start noticing that Hazel is his favorite. Hell, he's even said it more than once. I'm sure they're going to feel really great when they watch these episodes.
I know it's an edited show, but I've seen far worse behavior from the twins and Hazel than from Riley this season. I've always staunchly defended her because I think she's too smart for this group and is bored most of the time.
I'm betting the Parker issue is a red herring. She's shy, and we're supposed to be shocked that she isn't naming flash cards with a camera in her face? She was up there with Riley as far as being ahead of the others, and got moved up in school. Maybe she's too smart for all the nonsense as well?
Or lights and cameras in her business 24/7 (if TLC isn't pimping them, Adam is) is having a negative affect? Introverts do not thrive in chaos. She reminds me of Jennifer Duggar, with a deer in headlights, how did I get stuck in this family?, look all the time.
This show is going the way of the Gosselins, unfortunately. I'm feeling badly about myself for supporting it by watching and should probably stop. These kids deserve the dignity of using the damn bathroom without the world watching.
