There's less than a snowball's chance in hell he'd give up parental rights, and even if he wanted to, his parents would never let him. Plus, Aubree is probably going to dig her heels in at the idea of (as C&C seem to imagine it) totally discarding a bio parent. I'm guessing she craves Adam's time/validation more precisely because he's barely ever there. And from Aubree's perspective, I could understand the frustration that C&C are so fixated on obsessively rehashing every time her dad blinks & sneezes. In her eyes, they're just ganging up on her dad when he actually tries and shows up...and then yanking her away from him when they have actual bonding time. I get that Chelsea feels guilty that Aubree has ol' shitbag Adam for a dad and spent her early childhood as an only child, whereas her younger kids will be treated to a Pinterest Deluxe lifestyle and an army of fellow Coleeeeeeeeee spawn popped out as fast as Chelsea can ovulate, but she can't change the past or vote Adam off the island because she's decided Cole is the better father figure. Plus both Chelsea and Cole have started doing this weird peacocking thing to each other about how protective they are of Aubree to...impress themselves with their mutual parenting skills? Which totally disregards Aubree's feelings and at this point they're treating her like a little spy to gather dirt on the Linds. Trying to force Adam out of the picture out of spite or to perpetuate their "perfect Coleeeee family" image is only going to alienate Aubree further and drive her into Adam's arms, especially as she enters her teen years. A big ole YEP! Which is why it’s so obvious that none of these jokers has taken the time to get any assistance or therapy for the situation. I’ve taken many parenting classes (licensed foster parent) and they preach to high heaven the “Barbie” syndrome. The kid inherently knows their bio is not awesome, but in these kids minds no matter the age or abuse they have endured, mom is beautiful as Barbie driving a pink corvette and living in a mansion. (You can apply this to any gender, you get what I am saying). Poor Aubree, who probably knows by now that her mom really just prays for her dad to OD and die. It’s ok to have those feelings, but you don’t let the littles know! Edited March 28, 2019 by geauxaway 1 4 Link to comment
