To hug or not to hug, that is the question. Literally. Jackie tries to explain why she was never overtly affectionate with her kids when they growing up but her younger daughter Chantel remembers things a little differently.
A lot of the recent events with the other ladies have Jackie re-examining her relationship with her oldest daughter, Ta’Kari Lee, as well as her parenting style as a mother. Who can give her feedback better than one of her kids? She wants to know truthfully if she was doing too much as a mother but she wasn’t prepared for how Chantel really felt. Jackie believes that the Christies are “not a family of hugs”. When her daughter agrees by saying that she was never hugged growing up, Jackie is hurt, even though she just acknowledged the same thing. Chantel always wanted the hugs but never got them, and as hard as it is for Jackie to hear, at least she could be honest enough to open up to her mom without letting her own opinions of the Ta’Kari and Jackie situation get in the way.
