Honey Boo Boo had a big personality. She was sassy, quick-witted, and from what I could tell intelligent. I never saw her as "bratty". I never saw her throw tantrums or seriously misbehave. I could clearly tell she had never been taught basic manners like saying "please" and "thank you" or basic table manners. I always felt worse for the older kids because I imagined Honey Boo Boo's friends at school not knowing what Toddlers and Tiaras and Here Comes Honey Boo Boo was. I wondered what middle school and high school must have been like for Pumpkin, Anna, and Chubbs. I always thought Mama June was a bad parent. I couldn't imagine what it was like to go to school and have everyone see your family the way they portrayed themselves. It was clear to me that those girls grew up with little structure and little guidance all their lives. I thought Mama June was a mom who clearly loved her kids and I always appreciated teaching her kids to be accepting of people from all works of life. She lost my respect when she started hanging around with her child's molester. Even if she did "just see him a couple times" if I ever re encountered someone who harmed my child in any way shape or form I'd be in jail. Its sad to see how low shes fallen and I hope for Alana's sake that someone who won't exploit her gets custody of her. What's Uncle Poodle up to? She's at an age now where I wouldn't want my friends seeing my family like this. Mama June needs to be thrown in jail because clearly she doesn't care if shes violating her sentence. Geno needs a restraining order to stay away from the family. WE TV needs to look out for these girls. At least they have some money hopefully put away for them for them to fall back on.
