She is too calm with her kids going missing in the store. Unless it was staged. Someone in the comments said maybe she disciplines her kids off camera but their behavior is not reflective of that from what she shows on camera.

It's not the first time so at this point she just got used to it.
Didn't you see the vlog where she can't find Evil and she is climbed on some shelves because there was a toy house and employees had to find her?
And there are plenty of examples, but hei good footage and they need to buy a new house!

I remember, it was at a Sams club so Eve would have had to be missing for awhile because those shelves are high up.
The food thing to me is crazy, maybe because I was born in a different time but growing up, we had a meat, veggie, bread and fruit at every dinner, if by chance we had a big pot of soup then we would have a sandwich (grilled cheese or ham and cheese) or at the very least, bread with it.

I think that was staged... when she ''finds'' the kids Eve says something about being in the cart and about running around. Perhaps meaning that Ruby made her sit in the cart because she was running around the store?
Eitherway it's both ridiculous to ''lose'' young kids so often in stores and ridiculous too to leave the kids alone somwhere in the store while she pretends she lost them..

I don't see a problem with the way she feeds the kids. I would much rather see kids that look like hers than overweight out of shape fat children.

Her kids eat breakfast, a school lunch, a snack as soon as they walk in the door, and dinner. Maybe it would help to start introducing more variety now that she's not living off of food storage, but I hope she doesn't start putting a feast on the table each meal.

Her kids will probably all end up thin like her because they are disciplined to eat just enough and not too much like some of you want to see.

Sorry but noodles/pasta chicken and jar store brought pesto is not "super" healthy. The amount of oil that is put in a lot jar pesto sauce is crazy. And not one vegetable in sight. It's a very quick meal but definitely not healthy.I do a meal very similar to what she does but I use brown pasta (quick question: i have noticed in the US you call pasta/spaghetti noodles? In Europe spaghetti is pasta and noodles are more what we used for Thai food or Japanese food. Is it common to call pasta noodles or is it different by different state? ) anyway brown pasta chicken green pesto but a lot of spinach mixed into the sauce with maybe some walnuts. I know kids are picky but the spinach doesn't give too much of a bitter taste and it just makes it healthier. I would do my own pesto sauce but it's kind of expensive to make. Your dish sounds lovely Ruby but it's not healthy just very quick to make.

Yes, in the USA pasta/noodles are pretty much interchangeable. And kids need bigger servings of protein than splitting a rotisserie chicken between seven people.
I get the point that especially in the USA, servings are in general huge, and not only is our society leaning towards overweight, we waste a lot of food, but there's a continuum, and the Griffiths seem to tend too far too the other end, and have a weird relationship with food. The small servings but obsession with "treats", isn't right.
And all you have to do is open one of those store bought pestos to see all the oil. It's so easy to make homemade pesto, and there's an asparagus pesto that is super yummy and better for you.

How is allowing a variety of options on the table going to create fat children? Unhealthy food options, and potentially not allowing your children to feel full or always wanting more can create children who grow up with bad food habits. We always have a meat/fish, a starch, vegetable and/or fruit available for each meal. There's nothing wrong with your dinner looking like a "feast" as long as you're instilling appropriate meal portions. If I fed my children or even myself soup and bread most nights, we'd be bored out of our minds craving other foods.

I agree. I was brought up on small meals and having to ask for food, rather than helping myself. I had an unhealthy relationship with food growing up. Sneaking biscuits from the tin without asking and hiding them in my room, buying sweets and chocolates on my way home from school without my mother knowing. When I went to sleepovers when I was 9/10/11 I would eat so much that I would actually make myself vomit. I got over that when I moved out of the family home and started cooking for myself.

I do give my mother credit for a wide variety of meals though.

Re: noodles. My mom, mother-in-law, grandparents, etc always called any sort of pasta "noodles." (Grandma Griff probably does too) My family's from the Midwest, and my husband's is from the deep South, so I'm not sure it's a regional thing. He and I both use the name of the actual pasta, ie egg noodles, linguine, etc. Perhaps this has to do with the recent rise of foodie culture, which we're not exactly part of but which has rubbed off on people our age and younger, who have been heavily exposed to media and probably dined in a variety of restaurants with more sophisticated menu items (and descriptions) than our parents and older generations were accustomed to.

As for Ruby's meals - I don't think she needs to give them larger portions of pasta, rice, white bread, etc. But there ought to be a LOT more vegetables and fruits, and probably more protein. I don't consider balanced meals with adequate nutrition to be serving a feast every night.

Most of Ruby's kids will probably get her family's naturally thin figures, but Kevin has to actively fight paunchiness and we saw Shari restrict sugar and get involved in sports, which helped her trim down a bit. Not that she was ever overweight - but I think she has to try harder than Ruby and her sisters to stay thin.

I agree that a portion-restricted diet based on white carbs and "treats" is unlikely to create a healthy relationship with food. Feeling hungry (and getting cravings due to poor nutrition) can lead to hoarding, sneaking, and binging on unhealthy stuff, at least in my experience. Ruby now has the income to provide a better diet for her kids, and I can't understand why she doesn't.

Along the same line of thought, but more nitpicky - we know Ruby has no aversion to giving the kids loads of chores, so I wish she would switch out some of their responsibilities and instead get them involved in (healthy) meal planning and prep. I was left in charge of cooking dinner nightly with crappy, limited ingredients from the age of 10, which I can't really recommend. But I have enjoyed getting my stepgirl involved in meal prep from the time she was a toddler, which has been massively rewarding and has resulted in a girl Shari's age with a palate far more adventurous than my own.

I think the reason Ruby doesn't do better things now that she has more money is due to the lack of education and experiences.
We could see from her failed attempt at homeschooling that she doesn't know much. Furthermore, she only interacts with her family and thus she doesn't learn new recipes, ideas, suggestions from other people.

I have a question about homeschooling: is there some kind of evaluation at the end of school year, like a test with a real teacher to see if the child has learned enough to pass the class?
I basically don't know anything about it's rules, is it different from state to state? Homeschooling is forbidden in my country...

I wonder if Russell would pass anything like such a test at the end... When was the last time we've seen him studying? Besides playing doc :?

Ruby has no excuses for not homeschooling her kids, she lives with an educated man who can teach her so much if she wanted to learn something new. But I guess, her mother taught her all she needs to know about life in general.
Poor Russel and Evie who both seem eager to learn more as children their age do, but Ruby just keeps them at home out of boredom and to keep her company. Ruby is like an older Ellie, she can't be home alone so the kids have to take turn to stay at home with her during the day, but she officially calls it "homeschooling".
Kendra from J-house is one of the few mothers I've seen really educating her kids thru homeschooling.

+there is also something called Youtube if she really wanted to cook them something else or different other than that noodle and soup dishes. Kevin probably eats something else at work, no way that grown up man survives on those small portions while running every morning.

I agree about Ruby keeping those kids home for companionship. Next year Russell should be in school and Eve should start preschool because she'll be 4. What is she gonna with herself?

Ahh ok thanks for answering my noodle question!lol. Now ruby is earning a nice amount of money from YouTube you would think she would be providing more for her kids by that I mean more clothes and better food, but it seems like she's being selfish and holding back because she wants a new house. Maybe the fact one of her sister just built a big house and the other a remodel she feels pressure on keeping up as she's the oldest, pretty narcissistic if you ask me. It always seems the sisters are trying to one up on eachother. I know her kids look naturally thin but that doesn't mean they are healthy....food plays a huge roll in health and she is not giving her kids a decent amount of food and healthy either. I find it so weird aswell how the sisters feed their family small portions of food, what is with that? It's like a controll thing..really weird.

I think Russell doesn't need to have an exam as he will just start school.
Chad was homeschooled last year and they examined him and they said he did well.

A while ago Ruby was saying to take one kid out of school every year and we think that it will be Julie because she was/is being bullied.

Kevin eats at the university canteen.

Someone made a comment on the Butler family thread on GG, about the way they pop out babies and then don't teach them anything, just coddle them and enjoy having cute cuddly babies around. The older kids go off to school, and they can't be alone in the house, so they pop out another baby.
As far as the homeschooling requirements, I am pretty sure they differ from state to state.

I think It's a very, very bad idea to take Julie out of school. It will make her seem "special" in the eyes of her peers, more bullying material.

Well, Ruby will teach her how to no be bullied since Ruby said it was Julie's fault she was getting bullied.

The advice she gave Julie about her getting bullied was just awful coming from her own mother, just unbelievable

Anyways, about the food issue, I don't think it's all about them not knowing about nutrition. Their mother has raised and controlled hem with food or something.
Kevin knows all about healthy food so does Joel a bit, at least out of what I've seen. They just don't want to take the fight with their wives.

I've seen in both Bonnies and Rubies vlogs where they adults eat real ”food” or nicer, tastier foods cause the kids for some reason don't deserve to eat the same food as the adults. The kids are like second class citizen (I guess it's the controlling narcissistic traits).The children have to some how earn the right to eat ”tastier” or different from their normal noodles /soup meny.

In one of Bonnies vlogs she forces the kids to eat some orange looking noodle-soup while her and Joel share some nice meat. Chad jr caught Ruby and Kevin enjoying KFC in their bedroom once. If you watch their family gathering vlog, the kids get some boring soup and all the adults eat some jummy food. Also the kids always have to eat all and be grateful that they are getting any food, notice ANY FOOD no matter how bad it taste. Everyone should have the right to express if the don't like the taste of something including children.

I would have sympathy with the Griffits sister's if it was about the ingredients in the food being to heavy or strong for the kids but it's not out of concern for the children, it's about control. So when the parents want or need the kids to obey they just use the food and the kids have to earn the right to eat something different from the soup/noodle meny. For those children who are happy to do extra chours and don't complain about anything, they get treats especially as their mothers don't have to cook then. But I've seen Kevin cook real food when he has time.

Most parents and those wihout children believe that feeding your kids comes with being a parent. But in the Griffiths house it seems as something of a luxary that you have to earn.
I understand everything about teaching your kids being grateful about life but this family take it to another weird level. I don't think Emily raises her children this way, don't get that impression...

Re: nutrition- I don't think it's so much about the kids not having enough to eat at meal times, but rather that the diet just isn't great. They often come home after school and have a large sticky baked thing and some other kind of sweet so it's no wonder they might not eat a whole lot at dinner. I think there are some meals that look okay, and let's face it, lots of kids probably eat worse than these ones do, but really there's almost nothing green offered up. Somehow I am most troubled by the snacks than the meals, though. I mean, it's fine to have a couple of cookies once in a while, but it seems like almost every single snack is a sugar-filled, starchy thing- never protein, never vegetable or whole grain, and rarely fruit or dairy. I feel a bit bad for criticizing because I know it's not easy feeding kids sometimes, but in this case I guess I just feel like the food options could easily be a lot better.

I really don't think Julie was ever actually bullied. I remember when that vlog came out Julie was seen crying suddenly and Ruby kept asking what was wrong and the child never talked, she just pushed tears out because she was getting attention for once. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWu4f1JhfjI Someone else mentioned that Julie is learning what it takes to get attention and profusely crying is one of them. She tried to take the girl out of school that day and Julie was hesitant like she really wanted to go, then she tried to keep her home to rest and she wanted to go swimming. The footage is all chopped up, but finally there's a scene where apparently Julie needs a break from a little girl, but it's clearly typical childhood antics where the other kid probably said a mean thing one time, not some serious onging situation, otherwise you know Ruby would have been at that school quick. A few months later in another vlog, she tries to use the bullying thing again with Julie for "good content" and it backfires when Julie couldn't even remember the incident and even said it was never a big deal. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KH7-wIK9Vgs&t=167s Bullying is a ongoing thing where a child is being harrassed, this was not that.

It will be a shame if Julie is pulled next year with a she's being bullied excuse.
