7 Little Johnstons Fans Have Called Trent And Amber Out For Years

7 Little Johnstons fans have been calling out Trent Johnston and Amber Johnston for their parenting style for years. At times, they rule with an iron fist. While that may work for some people, the tough love approach isn’t suitable for everyone. In addition, the way many viewers see it, the TLC pair go overboard a lot of the time.

Trent Johnston and Amber Johnston are traditional to a fault. That means they also don’t give their children a lot of wiggle room when it comes to how they believe they should act or the choices they believe they should make.

It’s one thing when you are raising children. However, now that all of the 7 Little Johnstons siblings are adults, many viewers think it’s well overdue for both Amber and Trent to let go of the reins and let their children make their own decisions.

TLC Parents Doubled Down Following Jonah Johnston’s Bad Trip With Delta 8

Just as Jonah Johnston was starting to get some freedom and independence, one bad trip with synthetic drug Delta 8 landed him right back under the family roof. Jonah was legitimately struggling with things like depression and anxiety. While 7 Little Johnstons fans do largely agree that Trent and Amber stepping in after that incident was the right thing to do, many also agree that they went completely overboard with their reaction.

Not only did Trent Johnston and Amber Johnston trash Jonah’s relationship with Ashley, but, they also read their private text messages, which many viewers agreed was a step over the line.

In the larger picture, many 7 Little Johnstons fans say that Trent and Amber ruling with an iron fist has sabotaged Jonah’s growth as a young adult. Along with that, viewers also think that this same style of parenting will have a negative impact on the younger siblings like Alex Johnston and Emma Johnston too.

  • One 7 Little Johnstons fan said: “I think them reading Jonah and Ashley’s texts is insane. I get that the Delta 8 thing had them scared and they were trying to protect their son but they didn’t have to read all of their texts. They’re next level.”
  • Another commenter added: “They are so weirdly enmeshed… Amber seems to want to live their lives with, through, and for them. Does she have even a single friend? She’s probably terrified of being alone (with Trent) if her kids actually ever grew up and became independent.”

  1. Trent and Amber are way to controlling of their kids.
    Telling Elizabeth ( whom is now living independently in her own home) that her boyfriend of several years ‘Brice’ isn’t allowed to stay ‘overnight ‘….is ridiculous!
    They make it blatantly obvious which ones are their ‘favourite ‘ children..
    I admit their parenting in regards to responsibilities, respect and manners is to be admired…but they’re nearly adults….back off a bit !
