Just 17 when her oldest child was born, Jenny says having kids wasn’t in her plan. Now 36, Jenny is a single parent with five children, ages 8-18.
Her two oldest, 18-year-old Ryan and 15-year-old Maddie, say Jenny doesn’t cook or clean, won’t interact with the family, and rarely gets out of bed.
“My mom doesn’t spend any time with us. She’d rather sleep and play Candy Crush,” claims Maddie.
Ryan says, “My mom expects me and my sister to take care of the kids make sure they’re fed, make sure the house is a tiny bit clean.”
“I don’t like to sit in the same room as them,” agrees Jenny. Continuing, she says, “I’m really good at getting pregnant and having kids, I just don’t know how to raise them.”
