About

This site was started many years ago by Jay ‘Zeroboss’ Allen as Parents Behaving Badly. The site has changed hands over the years until it ended up in mine.

Hi, I’m Trench Reynolds. I’ve been blogging about crime since 2000. When Parents Behaving Badly first came into my possession I received the blog first before I received the parentsbehavingbadly.com domain. While waiting months to get the domain from the previous owner I decided to use a URL I was using before at a c0ompeteing site called Bad Breeders. After the URL came to my possession it was easier to change the site name to Bad Breeders then it was to change the URL back to parentsbehavingbadly.com. This was not meant as any disrespect towards the former owners of the blog.

Anyway this blog chronicles the worst in some may call parenting. In my opinion the people in these stories don’t deserve to be called parents hence the term Breeders because it seems they just breed children and not raise them properly.

Some may ask who am I to judge? Well I have 2 wonderful step-children who I helped in raising and not once did I commit any of the atrocities listed on this site to them. They’re adults now and I would like to think that I did a pretty good job in helping raise them. That’s who I am.

    It does not help such a very sad and tragic abuse of innocent children to create hate pages! Can’t you see ? It is like you are getting off on it. I found this unfortunate site while reading the news and I just hope you take some time out to really think about what you are doing. The Neglect and abuse of children is a societal problem and individuals who hurt children are sick, a sickness in society – something we need to work to understand and help so it doesn’t happen in future. The hate pages do nothing but spread more ugliness.

      So, do you think people that abuse kids should be given counselling and a lollipop? Most people that hurt kids aren’t actually sick in any way. They’re just assholes. There is a big difference. This isn’t a problem that will be solved by sitting around holding hands singing “Kumbaya”, we now know that approach doesn’t work. This site is at least an attempt to bring it to the forefront and smack people in the face with it. It’s NOT a sight about hate. It’s a sight for shaming abusers, mostly frequented by those that have been abused. It’s all about perspective.

    Your summary opinion of Hannah Overton shows your ignorance and prejudices. One can read the facts online and clearly see this was a case of malicious prosecution and a jury that did not follow the judge’s instructions. The lead prosecutor in that case has since been fired from the DA’s office for her conduct in a unrelated matter, but it does speak of her overall character.

    Also glad to see you have such a high opinion of yourself. For someone so self aggrandizing and who obviously has no self esteem issues, I wouldn’t trust you with my neighbor’s cat personally. (How many mirrors in your house?) That’s who I am

    I was sitting here waiting to get sleepy when I started googling mine and my husbands names and I saw your blog on Ethan a few years back.it was tagged with joes name. Nathan(I refuse to say stepfather bc that’s a title to be earned) ended up getting a plea deal of 25-life, something that was hard to hear. She has yet to have her day in court, so to speak. ~ BeckyStacy
