Lindsay Lohan herself opened up a can of worms when she publicly complained about Amanda Bynes not getting into trouble for doing the same things she herself had been jailed over. It’s not surprising that Dina Lohan, Lindsay’s mother, was then asked what she thought about Amanda’s situation and what Amanda’s parents should do.
“You know, I’m a mother, and I feel that that’s for her mother to speak about, and not me, because people have spoken for my child and myself. I really feel that’s for her parents to discuss and Amanda herself.”
Go Dina! That was an entirely appropriate response. When pressed for general advice Dina would give, she said this.
“Just be around. It’s hard when your daughter’s not, you know, over 18, and you want to let them go and they want to feel like they’re in control of themselves. So it’s a very strategic place for a parent to be, but she’ll be ok.”
Amanda’s parents are said to feel “helpless” because she reportedly won’t speak to them. It can’t be easy to see your adult child struggling like this! I think Dina gave good advice, though. Really, what more can Amanda’s parents do if she refuses their help?
