There is something really off about her. (Even more in Ellie than her but well, somethings are learnt, somethings you are born with)
Her amusement when somebody gets hurt (her OWN children FFS), dislike for animals (ok, not everyone must like animals), her lack of correct emotional response in many situations we have witnessed through her years on YouTube, the car incident where she blamed kid for the broken ball that she actually run over. etc. Signs are there.

I used to think that she is super good mom with lots of love for her kids. I don't deny it, she can be really attentive and act loving when she wants. (That is what creates the ''mommy-dearest'' cycle IMO, because the kids are confused about the mood-swings and try to please mommy to make mommy happy and loving again) I no longer think that she is ''super good'', mediocre maybe at her best moments.

I don't think that she is doing all that because she is malicious (even though she has this mean streak) I think this was the way that the Griffiths girls were raised and they are repeating the cycle.
I agree with you for sure. One of the saddest moments that really stuck out to me was a very clear example of the mean Mommy/nice Mommy cycle. It was when she went to the DMV on a holiday, but she forgot it was a holiday. She was so sweet to Boston on the drive and they were holding hands when they were walking towards the building. She reads the sign that it's closed and she's instantly pissed. She drops Boston's hand and starts stomping back to the Suburban like a mad bull. Poor little Boston is practically running to keep up and she's not even looking back at him at all.

Thankfully kids are pretty resilient. Living with a tempestuous mother is enough to make you an interesting adult with some stories to tell, but it's certainly not the worst thing in the world.

I would definitely disagree with you trying to discredit their experience as "there's worse in the world." A lot of children are negatively impacted by parents like Bonnie and they have problems with behavior and their emotions into adulthood because of it.

i think Cody got the table for Xmas and Boston got like a large toy-box or something im glad they're actually getting stuff to add to their room its so boring like look at lincolns its sad.


I agree. Lincoln's room reminds me of a prison cell. A tiny little bed in an empty room. Why is there no bureau? How about a nightstand? Something.
No decorations or anything in his little room. Doesn't he have toys??

He has toys. They are kept in the toy box, closet and the downstairs closet so he'll sleep better.

Especially since when she got finished cleaning, it still areas not cleaned and she commented that stainless steel wasn't as forgiving!

Some were commenting about Bonnie play slapping Joel and I guess I wasn't paying attention because I missed it. What was going on in the scene? I didn't want to watch the whole thing again but just when this happened.

Another gem in the comments was someone posted and said Bonnie was strict on the kids and asked was her mom that way too. Bonnie said she was strict, her mom was strict, etc and that's why her kids behaved. I laughed-this is the same family who cut up so bad in the store a few months back and lit up the comment section. The same kids acting up in restaurants!

In her Instagram post a couple of days ago, she said her kids were totally misbehaving and were made to apologize to their babysitter. So which is it Bonnie?

her children are only well behaved when she's around because they're scared of her. not a great way to parent, imo.

Bonnie is unpredictable. You never know if she's in a good mood or irritated because something didn't go her way again. But that’s not some burden children need to deal with because it’s not their fault. She's is immature and acts like a grown-up baby with tantrums. I guess it has to do with her unconsciously dealing with her own childhood. But it's definitely going to have a huge impact on her kids when they become adults.

There are clothes are dirty and ''dirty''. I don't know what was the case (i didn't see the vlog and I always like to give a benefit of a doubt) but If I have worn a dress half a day and it hasn't been hot,
I consider it to be still wearable and I can hang it back to the closet.
If I have worn the dress whole sweaty day or stained it somehow, it is certainly going to laundry basket.

I think it is waste of water and resources to wash a clothes too much. People wash their clothes way more than they used to. I think it is due to the fact that people used to manually hand wash everything
and that kind of hard labor made people more careful and considerate what they threw to laundry.

Previously worn clothes that are still considered clean dont go back in the closet thats nasty, they go on the back of a chair, behind the door or maybe even those racks they actually make for that exact situation.

If you’ve only worn something for a bit its probably fine to put it back in the closet. It isn’t nasty. Your “rules” for where clothes half worn should go assumes everyone should do things your way. Who wants a dress hanging behind a closet door for days until its next wearing? Sometimes people on this site get so caught up in how they do things, and so sanctimonious about that that it dismisses anyone that does it differently. If you think its gross don’t do it.... Bonnie or the previous poster can do as they like. Now if the dress has been worn all day, is wrinkly and stinks, then thats a different story and it doesn’t need to be “laid out” anywhere. It needs to be laundered.

I’m not getting into a laundry debate but seriously, you do realize that there are plenty of things we don’t wash regularly that are probably more disgusting than a dress thats been worn for a bit being put back in a closet? Couches, linen, jackets, vehicle upholstery.... all much dirtier than you’d think.

I must be disgusting (sarcasm) ;) because I often wear a pair of jeans or pj's more than once without washing (if I haven't been sweating or it has only been a few hours) I put them back in the drawer or hang them and I survive lol.
On another note, I wish I could say that I am surprised but of course NOBODY seemed to be wearing seatbelts in the car :(

Same! It’s so infuriating as a viewer to watch them in cars. I think it’s really going to take a horrific accident for them to wake up to car/car seat safety.

I’m just sitting here getting more annoyed with Bonnie and the rest of the Griffiths the more I think about this vlog. Ellie is pregnant, Julie just had a baby. They’ve all got kids. Do any of them ever think of what could possibly go wrong if they crash and aren’t wearing their seatbelts? I can’t even begin to imagine the possibilities with all of the unrestrained kids and adults.

Bonnie Hoellein: Plastic Polyester Princess | Part 16

Postby HelloSweetie » Fri Jun 15, 2018 6:52 am

Am I the only one that has a vehicle where the beeping would drive you insane if you even tried not to wear your belt?

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. It isn’t hard to teach kids to wear seatbelts. It becomes a habit if they’ve always had one from day one. The fact that the Griffiths don’t wear them tells me that they never had to as children either....and the pattern of no safety regards will just keep repeating itself until someone dies a preventable death forcing them to learn.

Idiots... all of them.

Seriously, this whole seatbelt thing really, really irritates me. You don't have to be in a high-speed collision to receive traumatic injuries. I think a common misconception is that you need to be driving 80+ miles an hour and collide with someone also doing 80+ miles an hour in order to receive life changing injuries, but I've seen plenty of people seriously injured in car accidents where the top speed was only 30mph.

And even if you can't be bothered about your own safety, at least think of the safety of your children! While your body is rolling around in that van if it were to get hit or flipped, who do you think you'd be knocking into? Your own children and nieces!!!

The mind-numbing ignorance this family has when it comes to basic safety is just unbelievable. Julie was definitely unbuckled and as the mother of a weeks-old child and three other kids, shame on her! I couldn't tell about Ruby or Ellie, but I wouldn't be surprised if they weren't buckled, either (which is richhhhhh coming on the heels of Ellie's attention seeking "will I bring him home" Instagram post the other day - You seem super concerned about his safety if you can't even bother to be buckled in the front seat!!)

I don't wish ill on anyone, but this family needs a wake up call. I think getting pulled over, receiving a ticket, or even having a cop, firefighter, or EMT reach out to them to explain the dangers is what they need right now. My father worked as an emergency responder and the number of horror stories he came home with from people dying for something as simple as not buckling up still haunts him thirty years later. Didn't Bonnie claim to be an EMT? If so, did she never come upon a car accident and see what it looked like?

I honestly felt so bad for Olivia during her piano recital! I’ve felt from day 1 of her piano lessons that she’s never been as into it as Bonnie wants her to be! And you KNOW Bonnie only makes poor Olivia play to make herself look better! Ruby’s kids all play/played an instrument, and all the Griffith’s kids played, so Olivia has to!
