Default Oh Grow Up, Jackie!

In the episode where Roseanne's dad died, I thought Jackie was unfair. I know she was experiencing grief, but she blamed Roseanne for not being able to see her dad for the last few years. She said something like her dad wouldn't visit Lanford because Roseanne made him feel unwelcome.

Well, couldn't Jackie have invited him to her own house, or couldn't she have gone to his house? Roseanne made Jackies life easier by feeding her all the time, letting her do laundry whenever she wanted, and always having an open door. Jackie needed to grow up and not blame Roseanne because Jackie couldn't use the Conner house as a meeting place for her own father.

Totally AGREED!! That's just it, Jackie was too dependant on Rosanne and then she would turn around and accuse her of controlling her. Jackie blamed everyone else for her life and decisions when she should have been looking in the mirror. another thing is that jackie practically lived in the Connor house and that always bugged me too....it's like they didn't have individual lives. It's fine to be close with family, in fact I'm very close to my family, but we also have our individual lives.

I agree there. Jackie was out of order in that episode for blaming Roseanne, Roseanne never stopped Jackie from visting him. She couldnt cope with organising the funeral then Roseanne had to pick up the mess.

I agree to an extent, but I also think it could be looked at as being realistic. A lot of times during grieving, it's natural to place the blame on someone else. But as a whole, Jackie really was too dependant on the Conners.

I cant completely agree with this. I realize alot of people, once they grow up and move out of their parents homes.......they cut the strings with eachther....and that is great! But some families dont. My cousin and I are very close, we share an apartment together, and most of the time, her family or mine are over here. Her sister doesnt have a washer or dryer, we do...so she is over here alot. We live in the city, my mom lives two hours away.....so when she has to come to the city for drs or whatever, she crashes here. Same with her dad and stepmom, and her sister that lives two hours away, when they come to the city, they stay with us. We have lots of family (our grandmother, cousins and her sisters) that are in and out of the house on usually a daily basis. We do our grandmothers laundry when its too much for her to do. We are THERE for eachother. Im not saying our way is better than others, its just right for us, thats all. I know for a fact that if I moved to my own place and wanted to crash with her for a few days, I could do it. That is what family does. And also, you have to remember that the girls (back to Jackie and Roseanne here) were very much abused by a man that had just died, their feelings are messed up in all kinds of ways that cant even really be thought of. As Huntington said, grief takes place in alot of ways, and blaming others is just something people tend to do. And witht he abuse tacked on....then aggravates the grief even more.

I should have made myself more clear.....I'm extremely close to my family as well and we are always there for each other too, but I think it's Jackie that got on my nerves in the way she did things. Had it been someone else? I may not have been so bugged by it. I just didn't really like Jackie and that could very well make all the difference. I just found her so dependant that it could be classified as mentally challanged.

Roseannes dad use to be closer with Jackie and he'd call her almost everyday (according to earlier episodes), so why didn't Jackie go and visit him?

I do think it was very immature of Jackie to blame Roseanne for the reasons why she didn't see their father. She could have seen him if she wanted to, she just made the choice not to especially once she learned of his "mistress" so in the end she has no one but to blame but herself.
