TEEN Mom fans have slammed Kailyn Lowry’s parenting after she shared a photo of son Lux holding a snake he found in the woods.
The reality star has repeatedly been picked apart by critics.
On Saturday, a series of new photos of Kailyn’s son Lux, five, were shared on his Instagram account.

Not everyone was critical, however.
“They actually make really good pets and aren’t hard to care for…. they also offer a lot of learning for littles my sons had 3 snakes since the age of three he’s 8 now and still loves reptiles like no other,” one fan wrote.
Another commented: “Sorry Lux! I tried to convince her.”
“He’s such a brave kid. So adorable!” someone else added.
Kailyn was also called a “smart mom” and a “good mom” by her supporters.
Recently, the TV personality opened up about dealing with mom shamers on her Barely Famous podcast.
During the episode, Kailyn shared her experience from her “trauma tour,” where she took her four kids to visit her hometown of Honesdale, Pennsylvania.
The reality star also opened up about her “traumatizing” childhood living with her mother, who suffered from alcohol and substance abuse.
She explained one moment in her younger years when she witnessed her mother being arrested for driving under the influence in front of her preschool.
Kailyn detailed the tragic incident, saying she was waiting for her mother to pick her up when the arrest occurred.
The memory prompted the mom-of-four to reflect on her parenting flaws and the criticism she faced from fans.
“For me, when I make a mistake and I know it’s going to affect my children, it bothers me a lot,” Kailyn told her producer, Kristen Correia.
“Like, people don’t realize that you don’t have to tell me that I’m traumatizing my kids. You don’t have to tell me that I can make better decisions, and I need to be a role model for my children, like, I know that.
“And when I do f**k up, I feel really f***ing bad about it, but it almost like I never – nobody ever apologized to me, and it just like – did my mom ever feel bad?” she questioned.
The ex-MTV star shared photos on Instagram from the family trip, where she explained “a lot of trauma was endured” where she grew up, but she “needed to go back.”
Kailyn – who now resides in a $750K Delaware mansion – also said that she wanted her children to see “how different things can be for other people.
Fans have repeatedly scrutinized the Teen Mom 2 alum’s parenting, most recently slamming her for allowing her eldest boys to play rough with her 2-year-old son, Creed.
She shared a video of the brothers’ “aggressive” playfight, leading viewers to express their concerns for the toddler.
Kailyn posted the clip after their return from vacation, captioning it: “We’re home” and an SOS emoji.
One critic replied to her clip: “You just let the boys play fight like that? That’s just terrible and literally encourages aggression.”
Another added on an Instagram fan account: “Why is she filming that? This was hard to watch.”
