Tori Roloff has received a lot of criticism on Little People, Big World, and fans have recently thrown shade at her parenting style. The mom of three was under a lot of stress this season, which might be the reason for her more relaxed attitude when it comes to her children. Tori and her husband, Zach Roloff, have a lot going on in their family, between moving to Battle Ground, Washington, and Tori getting pregnant again with the couple’s third child. Jackson also had leg surgery, and Lilah turned two, allowing her to transition into a “big girl bed.”
There have been many instances on Little People, Big World where viewers mom-shamed Tori and noticed that she wasn’t watching her kids. When Matt Roloff visited Zach and Tori’s new house, she left Lilah on the counter alone and turned her back away from her daughter. In another scene, Tori placed Jackson in the middle of the creek in their backyard and walked away from the four-year-old when he was still standing on a platform by himself. One part of the show that had the most backlash from fans was when Zach and Tori were setting up Lilah’s bed, and Jackson and Lilah were playing with the equipment with no supervision. This was the last straw for LPBW fans, and they took their frustrations to Reddit.
Reddit user huesosymariposas started a thread using a screenshot of Lilah from the respective bedroom scene on LPBW. They joked around by writing a shady quote describing the danger of the situation. “Here Lilah! Play with these choking hazards near the scissors we left within your reach,” the Reddit user said. The user was appalled that Jackson almost hit Lilah in the head with a metal pipe and could’ve poked her eye out. The LPBW viewer comically signed the quote with, “Your Oblivious Parents.” Several other users agreed and shared their own opinions while watching this LPBW episode. “I wouldn’t let my dog be in a room with metal pieces on the ground,” Nutz4reality chimed in. The majority of LPBW fans admitted that Jackson and Lilah shouldn’t have been near anything hazardous while Lilah’s bed was being put together.
Another LPBW fan with the username Psuedoramie connected Tori’s lazy parenting to the ongoing farm storyline. “I watch them assemble this bed and shudder to think of them running an entire farm,” the user commented. BrooklynJewishMom suggested that “Tori can sure use someone to help her out on a daily basis.” Many of the show’s viewers are aware that Tori used to be a kindergarten teacher, and it’s shocking to see that she can’t even keep an eye on her children. The farm is a huge responsibility, and it worked out that Zach and Tori’s deal with the farm fell through. They don’t seem to be mature enough to handle problems outside of their immediate family.
Tori is often celebrated by Little People, Big World viewers for being a great mom. She is praised for being accepting, especially since she has three small children and a husband who have dwarfism. However, fans are now seeing a different side to her and feel that she should step up her game when it comes to looking after her kids. It is possible that the new house, Jackson and Lilah’s medical needs, and her pregnancy caused her to be more of a lenient mother. Viewers are only concerned about the safety and well-being of Tori’s children and hope that she can try harder to keep them away from harmful situations.
