JACQUELINE LAURITA: Parenting Magazine Calls Jax Out For “BADParenting”!!…Will BubbaJax Be Writing For “ParentingMagazine”? … UPDATE: Parenting Magazine Expects MORE Readers!… UPDATE: Shooting “FamilyPics” Today…

ORIGINAL POST: October 26, 2012  2:15 pm    5:52 pm     

UPDATE NOVEMBER 14, 2012 

Since BubbaJax will be a “contributing editor” for @Parenting Magazine… not to be confused with PARENTS Magazine… she will need some photos to go along with her words of “expert” advice:

NOTE:  Would think a deposition would elicit much more stress than a photo shoot!  Interesting that PARENTING is the same magazine that called BubbaJax our for “BAD Parenting!”   Wonder how long it will take for a “cure” to take place?  

AND… who is responsible for Bubba bein’ a “contributing editor” at Parenting?  It’s Ana Connery… @APConnery

SH October 26, 2012

Jacqueline Laurita stated in her BravoBlog that she will be writing for Parenting Magazine beginning in February 2013:

“I will be a contributing editor, starting in February, for Parenting Magazine discussing our journey with Autism.”

After a search of Parenting Magazine’s website, the only item which includes BubbaJax is one which describes “the most notorious parenting moments”…

Mom Breed: The scared-of-discipline mom.
The 411: Jacqueline has pretty much lost control of her 18-year-old daughter, Ashley, who nearly flunked high school, lives with her 23-year-old boyfriend, and mouths off to her mother like the two are bickering sisters (and Jacqueline immaturely bickers right back). Jacqueline tries to be her daughter’s BFF and hasn’t learned how to command any sort of respect from Ashley. Let’s hope she does a better job with younger sons CJ and Nicholas.
Signature Parenting Moment: When it comes to Jacqueline’s parenting, the apple does not far fall from the tree. In a heated argument between Jacqueline and nemesis Danielle, Ashley physically attacked Danielle, pulling out her hair weave. Although Jacqueline told her she shouldn’t have done it and that she had to face the music, she never really punished her.

With Parenting Magazine calling out BubbaJax’ bad parenting, it’s kinda unbelievable that they would invite her to write for their magazine!

Therefore, SH asked ParentingMagazine via Twitter to clarify the BubbaJax situation!

No response yet from @Parenting Magazine…

UPDATE:  Parenting magazine responded via twitter… Parenting expects a “slew” of new readers!

 One reader already expressed their opinion!

  1. Poor Nick. I guess his dad really meant it when he said “go get a job.” It seems his job is to be a reason why Jac shouldn’t go to jail. Nothing to do with autism. Just being a very young child, as is C.J., that needs their mama.

  2. What “experience” does BubbaJax have raising a child w/ autism? At least have a parent that has worked with the system, raised a child w/ autism and now their child is older and can provide advice, etc. She just rec’d the dx a few months ago, she is a newbie to this condition and knows about as much a layman does about autism. Hopefully Parenting will at least read, edit and fact check her column before publishing. Unlike Bravo that just threw her blogs on their site.

    • I totally agree with you! IMO she doesn’t have enough experience as of yet to write an advice column, or whatever it is going to be, on the subject. I wonder if she’ll clean up her Twitter act once her writing contribution begins, since it may bring her more followers.

      • I totally agree with you and I feel that no way does she have any experience with Autism. IMO she will be using a ghost writer for anything she does write.

    • I think it’s a folow the journey type thing. I’m curious though if the magazine will allow her to even mention BLK in her writing. There is no medical evidence to support any claim that it is beneficial for children with autism. I understand there are many unconventional treatments that people swear by, but I worry that a desperate parent could be swayed to use anything she endorses. I would hope her writings are edited for acuracy and that she was hired with the caveat that her articles not be used as an infomercial for BLK. It disturbs me that Parenting did a previous piece disparaging her abilities to parent Ashlee, a teen with run of the mill teen issues. Her ultimate solution was to give up and send her packing, leaving others to try and repair the damage she admits to causing. Now they want parents to listen to her as she navigates a sea of circumstances that will probably be much more taxing than a rebellious teen. I don’t follow their logic. And those concerns don’t even include her legal difficulties. As an advocate for autism I would think that Parenting magazine would think twice about placing the pressure of deadlines and re-writes on the shoulders of someone whose child needs her full attention. And especially on someone whose shoulders have already shown they couldn’t bear the weight of a healthy child with normal rebellious behavior.

  3. Just have to comment about how bad this has become. I actually liked Jacqueline in the first season or two. Even though Danielle got the crazy/psycho edit, Jacqueline stood up to her family in defense of her friend – which I thought showed a lot of character. Little did I know that Bubba Jax existed and was stirring ALL of that crap up behind the scenes.

    In the end, I’m left with looking at a pitiful wreck of a woman whom I pity, dislike, and worry about her kids. I now understand why Ashlee is the way she is… what a mess of a mother, person, sil, friend, etc, she (Jacqueline) turned out to be

  5. Parenting Mag must want readers really bad because I have never had a subscription to their mag before and just a couple days ago I got their magazine and I emailed them they told me it is a complimentary 6 month subscription. I told them don’t bother if they are going to have the likes of Jacqueline Laurita writing for them to cancel my complimentary subscription as she is the least capable person to write about autism. Unbelievable they are trying to get new subscribers by giving away 6 free months. Probably due to all the ones they lost when people cancelled because of BubbaJax in the first place.

  6. Sadly, I suspect moms with autistic children have little down time to watch HW. They are too busy trying to raise their families while squeezing in everything else to help their children. Maybe the editors of Parenting Magazine were not as schooled in the HW way either despite someone at the mag calling her out for Asslee. Maybe new editors? After a few confrontations with Jax, they’ll figure it out.

      • Good to know. Shoot they cram that “playdate” thing down mother’s throats so much that I assumed I was the only one that didn’t do that. First of all, with my first one none of my friends had toddlers and I was not about to go make friends with someone just so I could borrow their toddler so I can make myself feel like I was following SOP regarding”playdates.” If someone showed up with a kid, then great but if not I wasn’t gonna sweat it. She got plenty of normal interaction with her cousins via get-together that happened in a more spontaneous way. I never did see the wisdom of training kids that friendships are a scheduled thing. They ‘spose to develop organically.
        And another thing. I used the Johnson’s baby shampoo that I got at the shower but once it was gone I just used whatever was in my shower. And that Dreft Laundry Detergent that the magazines push so hard crap dont clean worth a crap. Neither one of my kids broke out in rashes over regular grown folks Tide.

The more you know about products and services and when is free kids meals at Dennys…the better parent you are. The more candy you put in a Halloween treat bag, the more you volunteer for school parties, the more movies you have available for minivan viewing, the better child you shall raise. This is why I stopped my PTA membership. I just wanted to make my kids happy to see me at school with them.

            • At my son’s elementary school, there was a woman who dominated the PTA. She ran it with a tight fist, micromanaging every aspect. Nobody else was allowed to do anything. She was buddy buddy with the principal, who let her get away with it. Anyhow, once her daughter went on to middle school, a cluster f*ck of epic proportions was discovered. There were vendors for fundraisers who claimed not to have been paid, and lo and behold, this woman claimed that the books and paper work that were to be turned over to the school had been “stolen” from her house. There was no way to prove these people had been paid. The PTA started off the year several thousand dollars in debt and all the fundraisers went to paying off these vendors. There were no field trips, prizes for perfect attendance, etc. that year.

              I don’t know if this woman was guilty of malfeasance or incompetence, I think the former because the “stolen” books was just too convenient. She lives in my neighborhood and I think she is a POS. We have a neighborhood email tree and every time she contributes an item to the tree, I just want to tell everyone what a POS she really is. What kind of a low life steals from the PTA?

It was really sad because there were other parents that wanted to be involved and do things, but they were shut out. It turned out that the principal had a bit of a drinking problem, so that may have clouded her judgement. Too bad that it was the kids who had a cash strapped year that ultimately paid the price.

I was elected Pres for my kids PTA and tried to use everyone to work in a capacity that they were happiest and well suited. I always felt the weight of spending the money wisely and had a parent teacher advisory board who decided how the funds were spent. Resources are dear and the point of PTA is providing enrichment and supplies so that students get the maximum benefit.

  13. I cannot tell you how concerning this is. My husband works with autistic children (music therapy). Although he doesnt watch RHONJ he did hear me out and take a look at the situation. He too is concerned for a variety of reasons. First on the list is that he doesnt think she can help a new mother of an autistic child by tweeting random information. They’re confused enough he said.
    He’s also concerned by her use of terms like “cured”. Its not a disease and its not going to be cured. That sweet boy, if properly supported can flourish tremendously in spite of his being autistic. One only needs to look at TEmple Grandin to see that an effect of autism is an ability to hyper focus. They are often brilliant – genius level people. If that genius is fostered there’s not limit to what they can do. My friends little boy has been in my husbands care since he was diagnosed. We noticed he was good at games – making them up that is. Complete with field of play, progress, measurable results and a delineated winner. This little boy has now created four different live games – not computer games. He plays them with hi friends and has a blast. I can’t tell you how good they are. Ive played with him and his friends and the games are very well structured.
    So thats just one little tale of what can be done if you look for the good and not focus on the woe is me side of life.
    sorry for the rant, but .. this is v sad.
    My husband was quite helpful in validating our concerns. To repay him I can’t talk about RHONJ for six months. I hope he doesnt find out they’re on hiatus anyway.. lol

Apologized that she couldn’t clear that up for us ……yet. sounded like she was STILL on and currently filming. Just started Twitter. Read some of her posts from the last week or so. There have to be at least a dozen references to alcohol in that span. Wines, shots, specific cocktails and the bartenders that made them for her. I believe the shots were mentioned during a tweet about being at dinner out. What ADULT does shots with dinner? Frat boys and people with drinking problems (who hopefully don’t have children at home) or a former 20 year old on the first stop of their bar crawl celebrating their first “legal” drinks. She’s the wrong sex for frat boy and she hasn’ t seen 21 in maybe 21 years. Year long anniversary drinking? That just leaves someone with a problem. Documented on Twitter.

Can’t imagine ever sending a tweet, but it is sorta twisted creepy reading Jax, Jogo and Lauren’s. Disturbing almost. Haven’t ventured into Caro’s or Mego’s. Teresa’s seemed exactly what I expected Twitter to be. Everyday family and friend things. Pics of her pot of Lentil soup lol. Boy the inside of some of these people’s heads are way scarier than the outsides.

      • Isn’t it mind boggling that ‘Parenting’ magazine would think that this unhinged woman with chemical dependency issues is the right person to give advice to other parents? However hired her obviously did no vetting of her whatsoever. I think it is SOP for companies to check a potential employee’s social media accounts. Who dropped the ball and hired this loon?

          • She thinks it’s cute or something. I keep thinking back to that scene of her talking with Ashley’s father when she went and got the Bailey’s. She was giggling and showing him the bottle like it was cute that she couldn’t cope with the conversation without having alcohol. Also, the scene in Season 2 or 3 when Ashley had that boyfriend and Jac-a-loon went to his house to meet his mother and they ended up getting drunk in the middle of the day. Not only does she think this kind of behavior is normal, she thinks it is funny. I don’t find it amusing, at all. I think it is sad and I worry about those kids of hers.

            • Jax is IMO chemically dependent. She is stuck at the age of immaturity when she began drinking and has not progressed beyond that . Socially and in terms of maturation Jax is permanently 15 maybe 16. She is addicted to drama as any teenage girl and has no sense of appropriate behavior. Fake sleeping, engaging with her daughter in social media spats, revealing a friend’s private information. She seems blithely unaware of consequences in the real world.

  15. I will never read Parenting Magazine AGAIN & neither will a lot of my friends & family if Jacqueline Laurita ends up on the cover of Parenting Magazine – any credibility the magazine has will be lost!
