Amanda had a very nasty attitude towards her parents, especially to her mother. Jennifer had been a single mother for six years before she married John. The three of them had been very close but drifted apart after the remarriage.
Amanda, even her sister Abbey were disrespectful because they were very upset that her mom met John and didn't even talk to her even them about it, which made them feel betrayed.
Amanda and her sister Abbey were also very frustrated with the fact that her mother did not spend a lot of time with just themsleves because of Reese and Maeve.
With Jo's help, Amanda and her sister managed to reconnect with their mother.
She is now 21 years old in 2017.
