Jessie and Evans mom knew that their dad wouldn’t do a great job.
She knew that because their dad wasn’t used to taking care o the children because he was always away and she didn’t think that he knew what to do to take care of the kids.
Another reason why she didn’t want her dad to stay with the kids is because he pays to much attention on his phone and makes so many calls that he might not spend to much time with the kids and the kids might get bored.
Another reason why their mom thought that their dad might not do a great job is because it is a big responsibility and he might not take it seriously.
Another reason is that their dad doesn’t know all of the rules in the house and he might not follow the rules and make there mom mad.
A final reason why is because Jessie might be uncomfortable that her mom isn’t there and she might get really scared.
