Parenting is a touchy subject for NeNe Leakes, as Phaedra Parks and Cynthia Bailey has now found out. After the latest episode of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," in which NeNe expressed disapproval over Cynthia's decision to let her daughter have a boyfriend, NeNe took to her Bravo blog on Monday, Dec. 30, to address some of the other housewives' reaction to her strong parenting opinion.
NeNe slammed Phaedra Parks for pointing out that she has had some problems with her son. She went so far as saying that Phaedra's sons can go to prison just like their dad.
"As Phaedra said, "I have had problems with my son." Now Phaedra you are entitled to your opinion, but the facts remain, you don't know anything about my children. Have you ever met Bryson? If so, it couldn’t have been but once. Remember you have two young boys to raise! Let's pray they don't do six years in prison, because you know the apple doesn't fall far from the tree," she wrote, a clear reference to Apollo Nida's prison time.
She even had strong words for very good friend Cynthia Bailey.
"Cynthia also said she would rather be picking up Arthur than picking up a grand baby. Were you trying to throw shade, Cynthia? Well it didn't work, because I would rather my 13-year-old pick up a book than the telephone to plan their next date!" she wrote.
Cynthia explained in her Bravo blog in early December that her parenting philosophy is that overprotecting children can have negative consequences.
"It's my job as her mother to protect her, but I also have to know when to lengthen the leash. Not take the leash off, just lengthen it a bit! I think that when you shelter your kids too much, they become very overwhelmed when they finally get a taste of freedom! There has to be a balance. You have to protect your kids, but you also have to slowly allow them to grow up," she wrote.
