Skelton Mother Firing Back At Critics

In the six weeks since her three boys disappeared, critics have called Tanya Skelton an "unfit mother".
Skelton defends herself by saying that the boys' father John didn't want the boys around her because of an inappropriate relationship she had with a 14-year-old back in 1998.
Even though the boys have not been found, Skelton still doesn't believe her husband put them in a situation where they could be hurt.
Despite the couple's bitter divorce, Tanya still calls John her "best friend".
Meanwhile, police in Morenci say they've received more than a thousand tips of sightings-- but none that have panned out.

    So the father is likely a triple-child murderer and the mother is a pedophile? One heck of a family. Those boys never had a chance, and now they don't even have the opportunity to prove me wrong. There should be psych exams given to all potential parents.

    I am not here to judge these parents as there is only one they will have to answer to for their actions in the end...but if the father had genuine concern for the saftey of his children with their mother why would he have in the first place had not one but three babies with this woman that he must have known about her past history...and she calls him her best does she think he is correct from trying to protect the boys from her?????? Maybe the police should investigate her more .
