The only reasonable thing said the whole episode came from Brianna (I think, may have been Aurora). "You're the parents, you made the choice." Or something to that effect. The kids reacted badly because their parents keep making promises and then breaking them. Horrible, horrible parents. The older kids seem to be doing OK, but I think a lot of that is because they were mostly raised prior to the show. Now everything that happens is to keep the TLC gravy train moving along.
