Teen Mom S4 Episode 6 Recap

Teen Mom Season 4 Episode 6
"Temper Tantrums


Amber:
Amber wants to go home but it may be too soon. She talks to her therapists about it and they all tell her the same thing, that she needs more time to heal. She hasn't made a ton of progress as far as anger goes. Apparently she got into an argument with someone recently and threatened the person. Which makes her counselors think that she isn't ready to leave at all. Amber has what seems like a crystallizing moment where she realized that if she would have been able to stop herself from getting angry and fight with Gary her whole life could have been different. In the end Amber decides to stick it out for 2 more weeks.

Catelynn:
Butch had to have a background check in order to stay in Catelynn and Tyler's trailer park. Unfortunately he didn't make the cut and needs to find a new place to live. Butch leaves and Tyler goes to his moms house to talk. He is obviously sad that he is leaving but also is still stressed out about where his dad is going to go and how he is going to live. Catelynn is more relieved that her home is back to normal. 

Farrah:
Farrah shows off her new apartment to her sister Ashley who loves the place. The two talk about when their mom shows up for the last few days of Ashley's visit and they are worried. Farrah and Ashley make Debra wear a blue wig for funsies and to torture her I guess.  The girls leave Sophia with Debra while they go out and what does Debra do? Fall asleep while watching her! So of course Sophia gets into the nail polish and paints their dog. Debra thinks its no big deal but Farrah flips out as would I. 
They make the best of it and try to go out to eat. Where Ashley and Farrah tell Debra how they feel. Ashley goes as far as to say her mother is a "Satanic Pshyco Bi**h." 
After Farrah pulls herself together in the bathroom and comes back out to eat and get through the lunch for Sophia's sake. After that Farrah for some odd reason leaves Sophia with Debra again so that she and Ashley can go out for a bit. They talk about the fact that they aren't close to their mom. Farrah wants things to be different with Sophia.

Maci:
Maci decides to put Bentley in pre-school. He is almost 3 and she wants him ready for Kindergarten. They go to the school to check things out, they leave Bentley in the classroom for a snack while they talk about the tuition. Bentley looks adorable and sad while they are away. Ryan of course feels there is no need for Daycare, because Bentley is only 2 and half here (this was all filmed a year ago.) His mom agrees and doesn't think Ryan should miss time with Bentley because Maci wants him in daycare. 
Maci takes him anyway though so he will be going on Maci's days.

  1. Am I the first one to have heard a trailer park that runs a background check? I have a feeling there's more to the story, and they just used an excuse that Butch failed a background check (one they gave him after he moved in, no doubt). NOTE: I spent my childhood growing up in a trailer park. I have nothing against them, or saying people who live there are all criminals, I just find it unlikely the a trailer park would run criminal backgrounds, or would keep Butch from living there considering he was not a murderer or kiddy rapist.

    1. it depends on the park. My husband and I had to get then to move into ours. His was probably done after he moved in because he was living in Cate and Ty's house instead of getting his own.

    2. I live in the next town over from cate and ty, and around here, yes, they do background checks at some of the "nicer" trailer parks. As a way to clean them up and make them safer.

    3. My trailer park runs backround checks. Its not uncommon. I think it helps weed out the bad people that give them a bad name to begin with.

  2. There has got to be some kind of hidden reason as to why Farrah & her sister have so much anger towards their mom? It's weird! But I do think there is something that has most definitely went on in their life we don't know about. Plus, Debra always seems like she has taken pills or something. Such a STRANGE family. Like when Debra says "Baby Goo, will you pray with me?? Sophia says "NO". Can we say AWKWARD!

    1. Finally, a sane comment.

      Just to add to what you've written, anybody who calls their own mother a Satanic Biatch has to be hurting over something that is worthy.

      How quickly some of the commenters here point fingers at Ashley and Farrah, when the one piece of real and inarguable data available beyond the show itself is Debra's arrest not only for for assaulting Farrah but also for threatening a police officer.

      But no - Farrah and Ashley are the problem here. I guess it's more fun to pile on them than it is to contemplate other possibilities.

      Yeah - whatever.

      Anyway, I liked your comment.

    2. @A normal person- you clearly need to get off your fucking high horse. YOU are not the only one whose right, so shut your mouth and stop being so rude to everyone, you seem like quite a miserable person.

  3. I can't stand Ryan and his mom! Is he gonna keep Bentley from going to school because he doesn't want to miss his days. What's gonna happen when he starts school? Then his mom saying if he goes to pre-k is Maci going to make up his day? No she shouldn't have to!

    I like Farrah, but sometimes she gets on my nerves. I'm not saying her mom doesn't have something to do with it, but Debra can't say anything without Farrah getting an annoyed look on her face. Everything she says annoys Farrah seems like that. Finally when Debra said something to Farrah, Farrah has to get all upset and walk off. She might have also walked off just to not say something else, but still you can tell she was upset by what her mom said. I hate that Farrah and her sister are playing the victims, if anyone is the victim it is little Sophia all that yelling they do like that in front of her, even Farrah. Sister yelling at her mom in front Sophia that she is a satanic psycho Bit#h! We have ruined lives because of you! Hunny why don't you step up and own up that you did that yourself.

    1. Ryan said Bentley could could to pre school from ages four to five. Bentley was two and a half during this episode. There's no reason for a child to be in pre school for two and a half years, unless both the parents are working, then it's a nice alternative to just regular daycare.

      Delete
  4. First of all, daycare and preschool are not the same thing. Second, I agree with Ryan and his mom. Unless their state is different, you don't start kindergarten until age 5. There's no reason a 2 1/2 year old needs to be starting preschool. Daycare would probably be good for him though so he can learn to play with kids his own age.
    Finally, Farrah and her sister really annoy me. I'm sure stuff probably did happen when they were younger to make them angry with their parents, but that doesn't excuse taking it out on them every chance they get. Also, no one was making Farrah yell at her mom. If she didn't want Sophia around yelling, she shouldn't have yelled, not apologized for supposedly not being able to control her own actions. And Debra had every right to bring Sophia into the fight as Ashley said, because Ashley shouldn't have been talking like that in front of her. Debra had every right to ask her to stop.

  5. Theres no paticular reason for a 2 1/2 year old to be in pre school but there no reason for him not to be. The earlier a child can start learning the better.

    1. It's actually been shown to be harmful to push a child to learn certain concepts before the appropriate age. They need time to jush be kids a play before starting school.

  6. Yes, I agree with other's comments above this. Bentley was 2 1/2 years old during this. It is not necessary to be in preschool so young. He could start in a year and still have 1-2 years in preschool before kindergarten. It's not necesary. And if Bentley is in preschool or when he starts schools their time with each parent should be split accordingly so that one parent doesn't lose more time with Bentley becuase they are in school.

  7. I can't stand Farrah and her sister. I have never seen two people treat their Mom with such disrespect in my life. It makes me want to cry for her because no one deserves the constant rude remarks from their children. I feel like watching her segment, that her mom didn't seem to do anything right in Farrah and Ashley's eyes. Maybe I missed a big part of why they treat their mom like that, that they didn't show it but if my Mom came to visit, I would NEVER ask her to stay in a hotel or get mad that she wanted to visit. Farrah was the one who is ungrateful, not her Mom.

    1. I completely agree. I could never imagine treating my mother that way. Sophia will grow up to think that kind of behavior is acceptable. Poor Sophia :( She's so cute.

    2. The big part you missed and continue to miss is their entire lives. You only get a weekly peek into for half a year, and, that peek is edited, at that.

      Really, I don't get the assumptions made about these people, nor do I understand the automatic loyalty and allegiance of one side or the other.

      You don't now these, and you're certainly not an expert on them. Get over it.

    3. I'm not saying Farrah's mom isn't wrong either. We don't know the whole story i'm sure. But Farrah (and Ashley) should never act that way towards their mom in front of Sophia. She is so young and taking in so much information. The poor little Sophia isn't any better off in their screaming matches as Leah was in the Amber hitting Gary situation. The cycle is going to continue.

    4. Everyone is entitled to assumptions when they put themselves on TV. I didn't know I was supposed to "get over" something if it doesn't control my daily life you idiot. What you said made no sense. I didn't say I was an expert by any stretch, so whatever crawled up your butt and died, you need to get over, I don't believe you are an expert either and there is no need to be rude for absolutely NO reason..ignorant asshole.

  8. I really do feel bad for Farrah mother I know Debra is not the greatest mom in the world. But look at how catelynn grow up her mother is a piece of crap but catelynn is so nice to everyone. Farrah and her sister grow up really well off I doubt that ever went without any thing I use to think that it was just Farrah. But her sister is just as nasty to her mother too if they can't stand their mother why have her in your life. And if Debra is so horrible then why would Farrah allow her to watch Sophia if she sure a evil bitch why allow her to be in Sophia life.

  9. Ashley ask Debra why Debra doesn't speak to Ashley when they're in Iowa.

    Aren't you curious about that? Don't you think that maybe there's more to the eye in this situation than what you see courtesy of the MTV editors?

  10. Surprisingly I agree with Ryan and his mom. I don't see why a 2 1/2 year old needs to go to preschool. If Maci wants to take Bentley there on her days as an alternative to daycare, that's fine, but Ryan shouldn't have to give up time with Bentley just because Maci wants him in preschool. Bentley has twelve years of school ahead of him, he won't be little much longer so why put him in preschool now. Wait and do it a year before he starts kindergarten.

    I'm starting to not like Maci, solely on the fact that I think she parties too much. It seems like Ryan isn't really into partying much anymore, and Maci is surely doing enough partying for the both of them. She needs to wise up and realize that Ryan could get full custody because of how she's been partying a lot. I can't believe I'm saying this because I used to not be able to stand Ryan and was always Team Maci, but now it seems as if Ryan and Dalis could give Bentley a more stable life than Maci can. I wouldn't be surprised if Ryan took Maci to court for custody soon and he would probably win.

    1. I agree with everything you said. I used to be team Maci and feel terribly that Ryan treated her so poorly during the first year of Bentley's life but Ryan has really come around a lot. It is unnecessary for him to be in pre-school unless there isn't anyone to watch him. Since Maci has no job, and doesn't go to school that is obviously not an issue. Her partying is definitely excessive and she thinks she is royalty and above everyone else. I love that Ryan hates filming, the publicity, and wants B to have a normal life.

  11. There is nothing wrong with preschool at 2.5. It's far better than daycare if you are going to have the child out of the home. I think Ryan should get to choose if he takes him but it's not detrimental to B and probably would be helpful. I sent all my kids at 2.5-3 years old (depending on when the birthday fell) and they were very prepared for Kindergarten, learned to get along well with others, etc. Not sure why everyone is so against the schooling. No it's not 100% necessary but it is beneficial.

  12. Okay, so maybe Debra Lou Who was a horrible mother to Farrah growing up and maybe Farrah still holds resentment towards her for that. Okay, that's plausible. But it still doesn't explain why she's a total mega B to her dad, AKA Michael. He seems like a nice guy who just seems resigned to his position as a doormat to all those bitchy females in his life.
