Jenni Farley's son is struggling with a number of mental health issues.
In a video posted by the Jersey Shore star this week, he can be seen striking his sister.
I am an only child so I’ll never get it. Yhese two fight the hardest and love each other endlessly," she captioned the clip.
"All in the same breath. @greysonmathews go to move for waking @meilanimathews is hulk smash."
Many fans were upset by the clip, but Jenni was quick to refute their claims of abuse.
"I can reassure you, almost every parent will deal with this issue, because it’s called life," she wrote in her response.
"I posted it because it’s a brother learning boundaries with his sister but also excited to wake her for school. You, on the other hand, want to encourage problems when there are none."
