Ariella Brown is the youngest child of the Sister Wives couple, Robyn and Kody Brown. She is merely seven years old. However, her recent appearance on the show made viewers concerned about her. That’s because they spotted her with a pacifier in her mouth. They were curious as Ariella is old enough to be using such a thing. Hence, a discussion for the same began in the fanbase. Well, here are the answers as to why Ariella is still stuck with this childhood habit.
Sister Wives: Robyn & Kody Let Ariella Use A Pacifier Even As A 7 Year Old! Why Is That?
Noted Sister Wives pair Robyn and Kody often face the heat over various things. Well, one of them just happened in the very first episode of the show. There was a clip where their youngest daughter Ariella was spending time with Meri with a pacifier in her mouth. Now, fans know that she is 7 years old. It was odd for them to see her this way. As per the studies and surveys, young children grow out of pacifiers when they are as young as 2 years old. At most, they use it till they are five. But Ariella’s behavior made fellow parents concerned.
As per byte.com, there are some benefits to using pacifiers, too. Well, this includes pain relief and anxiety prevention. At the same time, the easy transition to bottle feeding, minimizing the risk of SIDs, also made the list. But these things are only applicable when infants use pacifiers. Hence, there is no sound reason as to why a 7-year-old must be using it. On the other hand, there are several risks to a child using a pacifier in the long term. These include speech defects, dental problems like buck teeth, overbite, and so on. A middle ear infection is also common in elder kids who don’t let go of this tool. So, it turns out that Sister Wives stars Kody and Robyn’s bad parenting is most likely to be blamed for Ariela using a pacifier.
Sister Wives: Fans Are Tired Of Robyn Mollycoddling Her Kids!
After seeing Ariella with a pacifier, Sister Wives drew many parallels. They realized Robyn Brown has a tendency to mollycoddling her kids. Well, Dayton is her eldest son, and as per Gwen Brown, the family took the decision to move to Flagstaff because he had his college there. At the same time, viewers have also sensed how oblivious Robyn’s kids remain to the turbulent relationships in the family as she shields them from it. For instance, they rarely knew anything about Kody’s divorce from Christine, Janelle, and Meri, blaming them for leaving without understanding or knowing the reason why.
That’s not all. Fans also found out that Robyn’s ex David Jessop is currently in need of funds as he is battling cancer. Some sources suggest that the mother hid this information from her three kids that she had with Jessop. So, fans found it wrong that no matter what the relationship, biological kids should always have a good relationship with their parents, and Robyn was preventing such a thing. How do you feel about her parenting ways? Let us know in the comments below. Keep track of all the latest Sister Wives updates by checking TV Season & Spoilers.
