          Woman Claims Nephew’s Parents Let Him Rule The House


          October 12, 2017

          Claiming he has unpredictable behaviors and throws temper tantrums when he doesn’t get his way, Angie, says her son, Rivers, has “major impulse control problems.” She and her husband, Hunter, claim the 15-year-old calls them names, screams obscenities at them, and has acted out violently toward them, and their younger children.

          Angie’s sister, Cindy, says the 15-year-old has no discipline and no respect for his parents, who she claims let their son rule the house.

          “Rivers doesn’t go to school with zero consequences. He wants friends over; they come over. He wants something purchased, it’s purchased. His life is perfect,” she says.

          Cindy claims Rivers knows how to manipulate his parents, saying, “Angie and Hunter are desperate for proof that Rivers still loves them.”

          She claims her nephew is the one who controls the household. “If there had been discipline from the beginning, they wouldn’t be in this situation that they’re in now,” she says.

          Why does Cindy say she’s worried for the safety of Rivers’ younger siblings?
