When Kody Brown, the patriarch of the family on the tv show “Sister Wives,” added one more wife to the family (bringing the total up to four), he apparently also added some unexpected tension between the kids (of which there are now 17).
A preview of the next episode shows tensions mounting in the house as Kody’s biological children appear to have problems accepting the step-siblings that joined the family with his newest wife, Robyn.
Madison, the oldest daughter of Kody and wife Janelle, complained, “We know Dayton, Aurora and Breanna come from a different family, but you can’t tell us to change…Yeah, we’re making changes. They have to make changes as well.”
Logan, the oldest of the kids, claims that change is a big contributing factor to the problem. The group was just getting acquainted with the newest members of the family when they suddenly left their suburban Utah home and headed for Las Vegas.
Logan said, “You can’t expect a massive amount of change to come along without situations boiling over…That’s what happened.”
Robyn doesn’t exactly accept that, saying, “I do see the difference with treatment of Dayton, Aurora and Breanna…I’ve waited a year thinking it would change, and I don’t really see it completely changing. I see it in some cases actually getting worse. If (they) don’t feel like they’re a part of this family, they can choose, at a certain age, to not be here with me anymore. They can choose to live with their biological father.”
Kody expressed his concern: “I’ve very concerned about some kind of problems that stem from bullying in my family…I’m at a loss. I’m just figuring there are millions of other parents just like me that are wondering what the heck to do with their kids.”
