Regardless of the harrowing allegations against Amber Portwood, she continues to be on Teen Mother: The Subsequent Chapter.
(This stuff movie months prematurely … and it’s not like MTV doesn’t already know who and what she is)
This week, nevertheless, the main focus was not on Amber or her conduct. It was about Leah.
Now an adolescent, Leah has no want to observe her dad and mom’ footsteps. She received’t be a teen mother. For that and different causes, it was time to speak about contraception.
On this week’s episode of Teen Mother: The Subsequent Chapter, it’s time to meet up with Amber Portwood and the Shirleys.
We see Kristina driving Leah to a physician’s appointment. Leah is now 14, and she or he has a wholesome thought of what’s acceptable to debate.
Her plan is to deliver up her intervals. She wants to control her menstruation and alleviate the depth of them.
At her age, meaning happening contraception.
Kristina is completely supportive, reminding Leah that she’s comfortable to let her focus on it with the physician one-on-one.
Leah emphasizes that she desires Kristina there. It’s so good that she has a constructive, supportive mom determine in her life!
In the meantime, Amber Portwood discusses her different little one.
She confesses that she feared that little James would both neglect or reject her. Leah was not her greatest fan, understandably so.
In fact, given Amber’s alleged therapy of James, he could also be much less excited to see her sooner or later — if our backwards household court docket system nonetheless forces him to.
Anyway, in lighter information, Kristina sat down with Gary.
Not solely did she inform him that the appointment went properly, however she confirmed that Leah was okay with on-camera discussions.
Having established that, Kristina then advised Gary that the physician was going forward with contraception for Leah. Leah is 14, and this can be a great way to assist scale back her period-related struggling.
“Welcome to parenting an adolescent,” Kristina then quipped. She’s proper!
Generally, it’s so simple as stocking additional bins of tissues with out asking silly questions on why they’re disappearing so shortly. Different instances, it’s some additional medical care.
“The physician did give her an excellent intercourse schooling speak together with the contraception tablet,” Kristina shared. “Leah stored saying, ‘I don’t want it for that, it’s only for my interval.’”
“I’m not towards her taking it,” Gary shortly affirmed to Kristina. “I imply, I would favor it.”
He emphasised: “I’d fairly her be protected than sorry as a result of she’s finally going to be sufficiently old and be extra curious.” Yep!
“And,” Gary continued, “I don’t need it to be the way it was together with her mother and [me].”
Leah deserves a greater future. You don’t get to be a Teen Mother star by making good decisions or by having good issues occur in your life.
Positive, some issues do find yourself going very properly. Chelsea Houska, for instance, is successful story. However she didn’t begin that manner.
Amber didn’t begin that manner, both. And given her string of outrageous (and, at instances, prison) conduct, she’s nonetheless not successful story.
So, we see Gary name Amber at her rental.
He fills in Amber on what’s taking place with Leah. He’s not asking her permission, simply letting her know.
Gary expresses to his ex: “I’m glad she received’t be like us.” Aren’t all of us.
“I imply, I want my mother would have thought of that,” Amber remarks.
She recollects instances “once I was laying on the ground cramping and dying at that age.”
There are lots of potential causes and a number of options for very painful cramps. If one thing as easy (and in any other case helpful) as contraception can resolve it, that’s a two-birds, one-stone state of affairs.
“I do really feel higher that not less than Leah is getting that,” Amber tells the confessional digicam.
“And she or he’s good and she or he understands about what intercourse is and to attend,” she added vaguely.
“For me, being a teenaged mother, normally the statistic is that it’ll occur to your youngsters, probably extra so,” Amber famous. She’s not improper!
Again on the Shirley residence, Gary and Leah go sit exterior for a father-daughter chat.
“She defined it to me, methods to take it. She gave me an entire discuss every part,” Leah advised her dad. And she or he repeatedly reminded him that she’s not sexually energetic or seeking to dive into that.
“Good. However I do know you’re not even pondering like that,” Gary he says. Not everybody has a sexual awakening. Those that do may have them a lot youthful than Leah, or a lot older.
And, after all, having the need to have intercourse doesn’t all the time translate to doing the deed.
“I’m glad you could have that mindset. Guys are sly. They’ll say sure issues to make you are feeling particular,” Gary warned.
That type of implies that males may wish to trick Leah into having intercourse. Hopefully, if and when she decides to be intimate with somebody, it will likely be as a result of she desires to.
“Your mother, she was 17. She was out of highschool as a result of she stopped going,” Gary recollects.
“So I didn’t mess something up?” Leah clarifies. Clearly, she had no company within the matter of her beginning, regardless.
“No child, I feel you’re good on that,” Gary reassures her. “And it wouldn’t have been you anyway, it will have been us.”
