Olivia's father's attempt at advice was pathetic. So yeah, the father of your child may, in a number of years, turn out to want to have a part in his daughter's life. So...
I think that we gotta go forward and you need to be a great mom and we need to pray and you're going to meet somebody and it's going to be okay and... otherwise we need to live with the constant stress and fear
Which means, I guess, that, we'll just pray and maybe you'll meet up with a good man and then the possibility of your daughter's father won't exist anymore?
Olivia is supposed to be someone who has done bad things and is now trying to lead a good life because she has a daughter to care for. First of all, maybe Eden's father will come to the same realization, whether it takes months or years. Why is Olivia so convinced that, if Eden's father tries to be a part of her life Eden's seven, he won't be a better person? Don't be offended that, despite past mistakes, a father has a right to be there for his child, especially when the mother has made mistakes of her own.
Also, I was so uncomfortable with the way Taryn handled talking to Kolby. I really like Kolby, though I understand that what people expect their lives to be at age 16 is not necessarily what the same person would think at 23. But Taryn seemed to be saying, "I love that you don't want to have sex until marriage! But if you do, it's totally okay." She could've taken the approach of-"Listen, Mom makes it out to be that if you ever make a mistake you're doomed. You're not." It wasn't supposed to be about how its alright that you have sex before marriage. It was supposed to be about how no matter what, if you're a good person, you're going to be okay. It was horrifying to watch, knowing that what they were trying to construct was so far from what it conveyed.
