Welcome to Plathville season 2 is rolling now. And as we’re getting ahead in it, we are getting acquainted with Kim Plath’s nasty side. We know that the Plath family is uber-conservative and puts a lot of restrictions on their children. The Plath siblings grew without access to sugar, internet, and pop culture. However, now, they are branching out slowly and are on their way to pursue freedom. While Kim tries to act like a controlling mother, she herself has led a rather cool life in her younger days.
Welcome To Plathville: Plath Household Split Into Three!
With the onset of the new season, we are convinced that the Plath family is split into three households. Ethan and Olivia moved away from the family to a separate house. On the other hand, Micah and Moriah have moved out to become independent. While the former is acing his modeling career, the latter is doing three jobs and having her time with her boyfriend. As for the rest of the family, they’ve abandoned their farmhouse and moved pretty close to Ethan’s place, just three blocks away to be specific. We’ve seen Ethan distancing from his family. However, his parents are disheartened to lose their son. According to Kim, this is really unfortunate.
Kim and Barry Come Off As Hypocritical Parents
Kim and Barry admitted during the first season about indulging in all the things they dislike while they were young. They confessed to involve with drinking, sex, and drugs, and leading their lives to the fullest. However, they believe that those were bad decisions in their lives, and so they want to protect their children. According to the fans, Kim appears to be a double-faced mother who is unusually cold towards her older children.
Some fans believe that the TLC show didn’t do anything good for the Plath family. In fact, a lot of them have discontent with Kim and Barry Plath. The couple is considered to be hypocritical as their beliefs seem too stringent in current times. They went on to prohibit the watching of TV, drinking soda, and having a cell phone for their children.
Welcome To Plathville: Kim Trying To Project Her Mistakes Onto Her Children
It appears that the storyline of the show has a lot to do with Plath matriarch. Kim seems to base everything around her life experiences. She has faced pretty many difficulties and made mistakes. However, she doesn’t want all of these to get to her children. She has been into drunk driving, did her majors in music, and hit her 17-month-old son leading to his death. Having said that, it is unfair for Kim to put the baggage of her mistakes on her children and prevent them from leading their lives. We can hope to see her relaxing her own rules in the future.
