I stopped watching because of the blatant favoritism of Ender (who is an annoying little shit) and the constant ignoring of Ambree.

Yeah, they are simply ok. Nothing exiting but also nothing controversial.

Can't really make much of April, sometimes it seems life itself is a bit much for her.
Like Davey and his dry humor. Granted he's not a beauty, but he has character.
Roberta rocks, sad to see her go (in May?).
The kids are fine. They seem to have their own channel but I never watched that.

I'm not religious at all and I live in Europe (Switzerland), so the mormon lifestyle and the US way of living (read: way too much junk food, and no table manners) is sometimes a bit cultureshocking to me. But it's interesting.

I don't think everyone in the US is that way. My step sons have table manners and in our house we eat healthy. We don't allow soda as a regular drink.


I haven't watched them in a while who is this Roberta?

I know It's an utter generalisation of mine regarding the bad table manners and eating habit, but that's the impression I have when I watch US family vlogs.

Roberta is a 16yo exchange student from Spain. She is with the April and Davey family since a few months (or maybe even a year) and will be going back home in May.

A lot of vloggers have atrocious table manners. It makes me sad that because of them, the rest of the world thinks we're slobs who eats with our fingers, chew with our mouths open, and talk with our mouths full. Lovely.

Not sure I want to even touch the porn thing because I personally support sex workers and I don't think viewing porn is dangerous (for most, obviously there are exceptions to the rule)

But Daisy's hair. Isn't April a hairstylist or something? She has a whole channel dedicated to hair. That big crimped look is not good on Daisy.

Roberta is going home 2 months early. They are being very vague about the circumstances but it sounds like Roberta broke some of the rules of the exchange program. I really want to know what happened tho! It seriously cannot be that bad.

I wonder though, if it was exchange program rules she broke, or April and Davey rules. She's not Mormon, and Europeans are more open about sex than most Americans as a rule, and certainly more open than Mormons!
Personal-- we had an exchange student from Greenland, when I was a teenager, and she and my dad bumped heads because she was more of a free spirit than he could handle. She ended up going to a different family.

If it was just April and Daveys rules they would just find her a new host family.

That's true. That's what they did with our exchange student.

I am thinking it was some sort of exchange program rule and she got busted. I'm sure April and Davey can see past what ever she has done. Though strict Mormons, they do seem to be opened minded and forgiving. Everyone makes mistakes. I need to research the rules some, but Berta did seem like a bit of a free spirit. Looking at her Instagram, it seems like she had a lot of freedom in Spain, and seemed to be acting more "mature" that what we see in the vlogs.

We had an exchange student when I was growing up, but I was never familiar with the rules because I was young. Roberta is obviously upset, I'm really curious what the action was that requires this consequence, but I respect her privacy.
She formed a special bond with EB, going to miss seeing them together!

Yeah my initial thought was that it was kind of a clash of cultures between mormonism and European expectations of teenagers, but I kind of think it was something else. I believe them that they would keep her if they could. It was a very sad video and what makes me the most sad about it, is that it had to be broadcast publicly for everyone to see. They handled it the best they could under the circumstances but I can imagine it's pretty difficult for all of them and that being in front of a camera is the last place they (especially Roberta) would want to be. On the other hand, if it is a conflict of morals or whatever, and the Orgills are willing to keep her and work together with her, that would be great material for showing cooperation, understanding, forgiveness, and problem resolution skills. It's all pretty sad; I liked the way she fit into their family in a not-so-perfect but natural way. She's a good kid.

I am so sad for Roberta leaving. I was sad for her leaving in May now we have to say goodbye two months sooner. I am sooooooo curious what really happened. I can see April and Davey being super defensive of Roberta's impression on their kids. Like maybe cursing or suggestive humor they really didn't think was funny because Zade is so impressionable. I just really don't know what she could have done that "terrible" that the exchange program rules were broken. I'm conflicted.

I’m also wondering what happened. I don’t think it has anything to do with the family or their Religion (especially not at this point).
Unfortunately getting send home isn’t that uncommon. There are plenty videos on YouTube where you can hear weird stories. Some Programms have really really strict rules,local coordinators can also be a problem.
I know someone that got send home for attending a birthday party where other kids were drinking underage (!!!).
Her parents could also be the reason. Just recently she had to take a test because she’s trying to get into a new private school. She said if she didn’t do well she would just stay in her current school but maybe her parents have a different opinion...

Some possibilites I came up with

1) Being that she is 4-5 years older than even Zade. With different life and religion. Maybe something she had, or was around. Triggered the topic of this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QOsbiBg0wXY

2) Maybe it's purely test results driven - Not progressing at a satisfying level for either her parents or the exchange program.

3) Doubtful this late in game but 16 year old stubborns mixed with cultural/educational differences could have caused issues somewhere.

4) With trying to juggle a social life, the family she lives with, and her own family nearly 10 hours away. Any behavioral/chore leniency April and Davey were giving her could have rubbed off a bit to their own kids.

Of course I don't know the program she went through, but after doing a little research, there are a lot of rules. You can be sent home for as little as one bad grade on a report card one time. Bigger things include getting caught drinking, smoking, or driving. Getting ONE detention or demerit can send you home. These programs aren't very forgiving. I feel like it was probably something at school, because unless it was something significant that Roberta had done, I don't think April or Davey would report it. But the school tells all.

Why wouldnt they just say Roberta wasnt kping up with her studies? Or even "she wants to focus on her studies" that has to be far less embarrassing then any speculation going around...
I dont think it was school related.

When I say school related, I don't mean grades or studies specifically. There are many things you can do to get in trouble at school that have nothing at all to do with her studies or grades. I believe the school was involved, not necessarily her grades. But even then, I could see how she wouldn't want to talk about her grades to thousands of judgy strangers. We may never know. But I believe A&D when they say it wasn't their choice, which is why I don't think it was anything done within the family.
