. I couldn't help but notice that Kyson looked sad in his eyes and was wandering around a bit lost, more observing the moment than living in and enjoying it as his siblings were. I can see some of myself in his temperament and the way he reacts to things, not just in this video but many others. Kyson often seems to have a meta-dialog going in his head simultaneously and we see him hesitating or questioning things rather than accepting them at face value, even when he is enjoying himself. Anyway, for his sake I hope it was just grogginess in this video and that he had a great rest of the day.
You are seriously reaching - he's a little kid, he doesn't have a meta-dialog
With all due respect (and I mean that), you seriously underestimate little kids. Most four-year-olds have a LOT going on up there, which is precisely what makes it so troubling that Jessica treats her kids for the most part like one-dimensional cartoon characters.
Also, I wasn't pretending to read Kyson's mind; I just observed that he seemed preoccupied, which especially stood out in contrast to his siblings' (more "typical") exuberant reactions as they tore open their presents. I mean, I watched the scene closely and he didn't crack a smile...

Jess makes awful life choices and is a complete fool, but she obviously loves all of her kids - he is not neglected in any way. All the comments about "freeing" him from his family are ridiculous.
Agreed, 100%. I in no way believe Kyson is neglected and actually find it tiresome how preachy and rigid people can get when they buy into that storyline and refuse to let go (hence my signature mocking it
). With Kyson I just see a bright, sensitive individual who has slightly different needs from Kaden and Lilia. And I see that his mother, as much as she clearly loves him, lacks the awareness to properly recognize those needs (calling him "needy" and "a momma's boy" doesn't count, Jess), not to mention the energy/time to fulfill them (pesky side-effect of having #7kidsin7years).
