Jenelle Evans' boyfriend isn't making the best impression. Although the "Teen Mom 2" star quickly fell for Nathan Griffith last summer, his disrespectful behavior on the show has led to concerns, both from the audience and from Jenelle's mom, Barbara.

On tonight's new episode of "Teen Mom 2," Barbara confronts Jenelle over her boyfriend's behavior. In response, Jenelle does her best to defend her boyfriend.

"I'm just sick of the bickering and arguing," Jenelle says, in the Aug. 27 clip via Wetpaint Entertainment. "No matter what you tell Nathan in the nicest way, he doesn't take criticism well, ever. Not only that but you piss people off fast because the way you word things. You come off as forceful instead of nice about it."

Although Jenelle makes it seem as if Nathan is the good guy, he is often seen yelling and screaming at Barbara, which hasn't made for the best situation between the three of them. At one point, Nathan accused Barbara of enabling Jenelle's heroin use. At another point, he said she was an alcoholic.

Nathan doesn't seem to respect the fact that Barbara is the mother of his girlfriend and his behavior has been hard to watch. Also hard to watch is the fact that Jenelle doesn't seem to think there's anything wrong with it.

"You had a vicious fight the other night," Barbara explains. "I'm concerned for your health and your safety. I think when I say those things, they're the truth."

"Teen Mom 2" airs Wednesday nights at 10 p.m. on MTV.
