When asked who their role models in life are,
many Americans would cite their mothers as a
primary influence. However, what happens when
mothers set a poor example for children? Today’s
guests are in question because of poor choices
that have adversely affected their children.
Learn about their stories below:
India’s oldest two children, Uni and Rebecca,
say that their relationship with India is irreparable
because of her past of choosing men over them.
Rebecca was once kicked out of the house so India’s
boyfriend could stay, while Uni was repeatedly
taken advantage of sexually by a past boyfriend – with
India’s knowledge. “During the Break” Video
Clip: Larry talks to India about her painful
past. Uni and Rebecca say they want India
to change her ways before it is too late for
14-year-old sister, Chrissy. Expert Stacy Kaiser
commended the sisters on their unified front
and urged India to expel her ex-boyfriend from
their lives immediately.
Roy and his wife Heather say that his ex-wife
Kari has proven to be an unfit mother for their
four children. Heather says that Kari has taught
the children how to lie, steal and even how to
roll a joint, all the while neglecting to pay
child support. While Kari admits a past with
drugs, she says that she’s been clean for
two years and is willing to take a drug test
to prove it. Stacy Kaiser advised the guests
that, if they cannot resolve issues between themselves,
they must at least curb the yelling and accusations
in front of the children.
to Your Elder: Terajee, Salimah & Jacque
Terajee and Salimah contacted the show because
they want their mother to dress more appropriately
for her age. They say that her immodest dress
is coupled with dating men too young for her
and acting irresponsibly. Jacque wants her daughters
to accept her for who she is and focus on their
own lives. Larry’s verdict: When the children
have moved out, Jacque is free to conduct her
life as she pleases, but while with the girls,
Jacque should make an effort to dress more conservatively.
