Quote stargaze: Taylor is not a bad mother and if you do not agree, I would certainly say that she is no worse than Brooke.
I do feel that both mothers were wrong in advising their daughters to persue Liam. Steffy tries hard to tune out her mother when she is pressuring her to do something that Steffy does not want to do (i.e. not telling Liam about the baby; Steffy only gave in after her Dr. encouraged her to tell the baby's father about the child and because of Brooke's ambush wedding). We do not know if just Steffy's appearance may have stopped the wedding without the reveal of her pregnancy.
As to Taylor's talk about Steffy having another child as soon as possible it is because she knows that this has helped many other couples deal with the loss of an unborn child. While you may feel that this is bad advice possibly because like Hope you feel that he married Steffy mainly for the baby. Taylor is concerned about pulling her daughter out of a deep depression.
I could just hear Brooke giving Hope the same exact same advise in a similar situation. As so many people on this board have gone to great pains to point out there is not really much difference between Brooke and Taylor. The main difference that I can see is that Taylor waits until the male is single where Brooke prefers them married. And when it comes to Brooke, Taylor reads her very well and Brooke hates that. Once again Brooke has not hesitation about breaking up someone elses relationship.
Taylor quite naturally wants to protect her daughter's relationship. Once again she has not done anything that Brooke hasn't done.
For those of you who want to send Taylor and Steffy to a mental institution then we also have to send Brooke because these two are only parroting Brooke's behaviour but it is taking two of them to do it.
I agree, both mothers gave bad advice and should have stayed out of it. They should have been supportive of what ever decision their daughters came too gave their opinion but never pushed for a conclusion.
Steffy didn't give in because of the doctor, Steffy gave in because Taylor kept telling her too. Yes, the doctor told her the father has a right to know but lets be honest, the decision came from Taylor and the girl who called them letting them know about the impromtu wedding. In fact, you can even argue that Brooke had a hand in the pregnancy being made public due to the debacle of a wedding she planned.
I don't agree with immediately having or trying for another child after loosing one. It disturbed me when John Travolta and his wife did after loosing their own son. To me a person must heal. When I had my miscarriage, the last thing I was thinking about was sex let alone another baby. IMO this shouldn't be a form of healing. As the situation stands the spoilers seem to hint that Liam may not even be on board with trying for another child just yet. Ultimately, yes a woman should stay open to the idea of trying for another child, even consider conceiving again yet I can't say that doing it so soon after a miscarriage is the healthiest thing to do mentally. On a side note if this purpose is to hold on to Liam we all know or should know that no child holds a marriage together. It would be a stupid decision.
If Taylor is concerned about pulling her daughter out of a deep depression, one it hasn't been that long. 2. She is a licensed mental health physician, she should be the first to tell you this is not the right thing to do immediately. Don't get me wrong, she wants to keep her open to the idea.
Believe me I am sure Brooke would have some if not worse tactics to keep a marriage in tact after a miscarriage yet that doesn't make it a good decision. #HottSteam
