Christine recount the “vicious cycle” of her trying to get Kody to spend more time with their six kids and dealing with the disappointment with him neglecting to show up. “For years I’d say, ‘Your dad loves you. He loves you. He wants to spend time with you.’ I’d tell my kids that all of the time, that he’s going to come over. We’re going to have a great time,” Christine said on the podcast.

“And after a while, they stopped believing me. And I saw it in their eyes that they didn’t believe me anymore. They did really feel like they had a great connection with him,” Christine explained.

The mother of six revealed that her children seeing Kody with his fourth wife, Robyn Brown’s children left them feeling betrayed and confused. “They’d see what it was like for other kids and how he was amazing and he wasn’t with them. And they were awkward around him and nervous,” Christine said.

The Sister Wives star decided that leaving Kody would be the only way to ensure a healthy environment for her kids. “It’s tough. Because all I want for my kids is to have a relationship with their dad. Are you kidding me? I don’t want my kids to have daddy issues. That’s super super sad.”

Christine felt like Kody was neglecting to see how special their kids are. “I also just felt like Kody was missing out on seriously wicked awesome kids. And he’s missing out on knowing them, because they’re phenomenal people. They’re amazing and delightful and he doesn’t know them. It’s sad for him too. So it’s frustrating all around,” Chrstine shared.

Christine Brown would have stayed if Kody was an ‘awesome dad’

After years of Christine and her children being put on the back burner, Christine felt her only choice was to leave him. “You can only sit and wish for long long. You have to start doing what’s necessary to change that dialogue, to change that situation and I was just done,” she recounted. She didn’t think waiting around for Kody to change would “change anything.”

She revealed that had Kody been better to her children, she would have stayed in the marriage. “If he’d been an awesome dad, I would still be there. If he was an asweomse dad to my kids, if they knew he loved them, if he wanted to spend time with them, I’d stay. But it just wasn’t there,” the Sister Wives star explained.

For years, Sister Wives watched Kody choose Robyn and her kids over his other children. Is it too late for Christine’s children to be close to Kody again?
