Now we're just confused!
Ariel Winter's babysitter has officially gone on the record to say that never saw any signs Ariel's mother Chrystal Workman ever abused Ariel in any way ever!
And she's not the only one!
"As a former licensed in-home daycare provider trained to recognize abuse, I saw no signs nor did I witness abuse of any kind (sexual, physical, or emotional) against Ariel."
And Chrystal's cousin has added her two cents, as well! Actually, it was way more than two cents, but more like a hundred pennies for a hundred thoughts!
The cousin wrote:
"A morally sound, extremely loving and protective parent. It is without doubt that Ariel is thinking evidently of her age, without understanding the severity of her actions … Still early in these teenage development years, Ariel must have limits that only a parent can determine."
The more we hear about this case - it is obvious that both sides have some fundamental flaws in their arguments. The problem is neither side is giving an inch, and so what we have is two extreme views of Ariel's relationship with her mother.
We doubt Ariel would go through all of this trouble just to have sex with a boy whereas she probably could have done that eventually anyway under her mother's care.
Someone, if not both of them, aren't saying the whole truth here, and we think we totally can handle it at this point.
It would be better than this circus case!
