Ysabel was jealous of Kody and Robyn’s nanny

Christine Brown admits she had a few pretty difficult conversations with Ysabel after the nanny came into the picture. Turns out, Ysabel Brown was actually pretty jealous of the nanny. Why? Well, Ysabel wanted to go over to Robyn’s house and spend time with her brothers and sisters. Ysabel Brown didn’t understand what the nanny did that allowed her to come over to the house. So, she asked her mother Christine.

The difficult conversation forced Christine to reach out to Robyn and Kody to ask what the nanny did that the rest of the family wasn’t doing. Christine’s question is also one that launched 1,000 memes among Sister Wives fans as they were absolutely tickled with how she asked the question.

Ysabel Brown just wanted her father

The hearts of Sister Wives fans everywhere broke for Ysabel Brown this season. She just wanted her father. She wanted her father by her side when she had the surgery. And, she wanted to go hang out at her father and Robyn’s home with her other siblings. Fans were furious when Kody allowed the family to come together for Ari’s birthday. They questioned why he placed more value on his daughter Ari than his daughter Ysabel.

Kody Brown, however, did touch on the answer to that question during tonight’s episode. He explained that it is the young and tender children that need the production of their parents. Their older children and their adult children don’t need that same production.

  1. Kody is hopeless, selfish and arrogant. As such, he cannot comprehend anything beyond his own views and thought processes. The way he treats Gabe, for instance, is appalling; he goes on about him being an adult, but really he’s barely out of childhood. Kody behaved appallingly – coldly – towards poor Ysabel, even suggesting she should go to Jersey alone! He made her feel unloved and unimportant. He is simply too full of his own self-importance and that causes serious flaws in his judgment. Oh, and FYI, Kody, respect from your children HAS TO BE EARNED. It is not an automatic right.

    1. And even worse he wanted the surgery postponed knowing full well how much pain Ysabel was in. What parent does that?

    1. Because the oththree slaves in the marriage don’t come around her and do everything she and Cody want they finally got a pair

  2. Regardless of your child’s age, you need to be there for them. Kody needs to get a grip on reality. He’s wanting to divide the family and blame his wives. I feel sorry for Meri and Janelle, staying in a relationship that’s a dead end.

  3. I’d like to know why a house that has several non working adults who are all at home needs a nanny in the first place?? Especially as Solomon isn’t a baby. Who pays for the nanny? What dose she even do? Kody has shown that he does not value his children equally. He was carrying Robyn daughter upstairs because she had a panic attack and yet his other daughter has major surgery and he wouldn’t even hug her before she left?? I hope all of his kids realise what a loser he is.

  4. I have 2 kids, one 32, one 28, and if either were having surgery, nothing would keep me from them. Age doesn’t really factor in to parenting allot. However all kids need production time. If they are asking for you , be there. You hurt a kid like this, they carry it with them until they see even parents can make duh choices. It is a guessing game, but you know all the clues..

  5. Robyn has finally got what she has wanted all along Kody is all her’s she has finally broke this family apart and those phony tears make me sick

    1. I don’t know if Robin’s a b**** but she sure knows how to play the victim. If you were any kind of a mature adult she would

      .apologize to Ysabel for the problems that she created with an Annie. But in addition these people are damn fools for participating in this lifestyle everybody knows that human nature is such that eventually everybody looks after themselves first rather than the other person no matter who they are so they made poor decisions in joining the family

  6. Older children are just as important, need as much love as younger children. Seriously what does the nanny do??? One child under 5. Two parents in the home. Three other children, two 18 and over. Many want an answer to Christine’s question. She had the sole care of Ysabel, why not have the “nanny”, who is Robyn’s niece help out with Ysabel?

  7. Totally agree with Brenda. And, why does Robyn need a nanny? She only has 2 small children and doesn’t go outside the home to work. Complains about her kids not even knowing their other siblings, but, yet, they let a nanny in their home. They have no idea what the nanny is doing outside of their home.

    1. That’s her and Kody’s fault that those kids don’t know the other siblings names. There is numerous things that could be done if contact was lost. I think the forgetting name this is intentional.

  8. I have not yet seen one tear go down Robyn’s face. I’ve seen her wrappings her face her eyes but no tears. Her eyes aren’t even red or puffy. She pucker her lips.All this is fake. She may fool Kody añ her fans if she got any.
    . please people do you all see tears, look at the whites of her eyes they aren’t even red..

  9. does Robin ever smile? she looks like a sad person. Why does he want to spend his time with this downer. Always whinning

  10. Unfortunately I saw the handwriting on the wall for this family when Kody devorced Meri to marry Robyn and adopt her children.. The favorite wife and kids were then established!
