Audrey and Jeremy Roloff of TLC’s Little People, Big World family are in hot water with fans after proudly exposing their young children to deadly stagnant water for days in a row. Are LPBW fans overreacting to kids wanting to splash in some mud puddles? Or, are Jeremy and Audrey Roloff in serious need of an education on what stagnant water is? Keep reading for the scoop.
LPBW: What is stagnant water?
To understand the dangerous situation that has fans up in arms, it helps to understand what stagnant water is. Stagnant water is a small body of water that exists and remains in place for a period of time. The water could have started as a rainwater puddle, but it continues to stick around in one place without a natural body of water feeding into it.
According to Rochester Midland Corporation, stagnant water can be extremely deadly to children because “stagnant water becomes a prime breeding ground for biofilms, or a collection of bacteria or fungi” due to the lack of movement or aeration of the water.

Audrey and Jeremy Roloff expose kids to this deadly water
According to chatter on Reddit, Jeremy and Audrey Roloff’s children have been playing in stagnant water on their property for days. The topic of conversation has caused a bit of an uproar among fans as some think there are no issues with the kids getting dirty. Others, however, point out they are playing in stagnant water. And, it can be a breeding ground for all sorts of deadly viruses and parasites.
These same fans express added concern as Audrey and Jeremy take a more holistic approach to treating illness. So, exposure to this deadly water is extra dangerous to children with parents that don’t necessarily believe in rushing to the doctor.
One concerned fan admitted they were floored to see some defending Jeremy and Audrey as they educated on the type of water the kids were playing in.
The individual explained: “Bode is not playing in a pond – there is no feed of clean water from a stream or from an underground feed. Nor is this a puddle from fresh rain. Either of these options – puddles from fresh rain and ponds of fresh, fed water – are wonderful.”
But these kids are playing in stagnant water. Auj and Jere have posted over numerous days the children playing in this exact same pool of standing water and mud. Temperatures have reached 80 degrees in their area and are getting hotter.
“Warm, Standing water is a literal incubator for bacteria and parasites,” the LPBW fan continues to explain while pointing out that pet owners are even encouraged NOT to let their animals drink from this type of water.
