Gary Shirley is now a single parent to little Leah after Amber Portwood decided to take five years in jail over getting help for her problems. And it sounds like Gary is doing everything he can, including going to school and teaching his daughter some valuable lessons. According to a new tweet released on Feb. 20, “Teen Mom” star Gary Shirley has been teaching his daughter about money and the value of saving them. And while he didn't share exactly what he has taught her, he did reveal that he often gives his daughter his spare change to save.
“Just counted Leah's piggy bank or shall I say "Box" she had 230 bucks. I save my change all the time for her,” “Teen Mom” star Gary Shirley tweeted yesterday as a proud father. Of course, little Leah isn't earning her money herself, but it is a valuable lesson that she is keeping all of her money safe. It is all about working for what you want and then buying it with the money earned.
In addition to being a single father, “Teen Mom” star Gary Shirley is also studying to become a nurse. He has been taking various classes, and one can only admire his dedication to making a better life for his daughter. He has also been visiting Amber in jail, and one has to wonder what will happen with this couple once she is released. Do you think it is healthy for “Teen Mom” star Gary Shirley to get back together with Amber? Or do you think Leah would benefit from them co-parenting her, and living separate lives?
