LITTLE People Big World stars Tori and Zach Roloff have been slammed by fans for putting their 2-year-old daughter in danger.

In the latest episode of LPBW, Zach and Tori were putting together a new bed for Lilah.
At that point, they were still expecting their third child and needed to transition their 2-year-old out of the crib and into a “big-girl bed.”
The clip started out with Zach putting together the metal frame for her bed.
The kids laid on the floor and Jackson tried to sit on Lilah’s head, but Zach told him “absolutely not.”
Tori and Zach talked about how Jackson dealt with switching beds and then it cut to the whole family helping.
As the parents put the bed together, Jackson picked up the metal ladder and put it in front of Lilah’s face telling her to “reach the ladder.”
He then laid back and accidentally whacked her in the head with it, which caused her to cry.
She was then seen playing with metal rods, screws, and scissors, after being told by her mom to “go over there.”
When they finished, they put her in the bed, which she seemed to like at first, but then got out of a few minutes later.
After watching the episode, fans ran to Reddit to slam the reality TV parents.
“Here Lilah! Play with these choking hazards near the scissors we left within your reach while we’re distracted and let Jackson hit you in the head and almost take out your eye with a metal pipe. —Your Oblivious Parents’,” they captioned the Reddit thread.
“And Jackson is going to play with a long piece of bar metal with his legs and hit you in the head. I cannot believe they weren’t watching the kids, even though I saw it on TV and they didn’t in person. They both seem so lazy,” wrote another.
A third chimed in with, “I was like they need to get the baby away from choking hazards and make Jackson stop bullying her.”
Many people wrote that they are lucky their kids didn’t get severely hurt, “They’ve been so lucky nothing horrible has happened.”
“That accidental bang to her head sounded loud and painful,” one said.
This isn’t the first time Zach and Tori have been slammed for bad parenting.
It also isn’t the first time that they have let their daughter handle scissors.
In an episode earlier this month, Lilah was standing behind a baby gate sporting a maroon flower dress and matching glasses.
However, what the tot was holding sparked backlash from users who slammed her parents for letting her play with the “sharp” scissors.
“Let’s just hope there are no cuts with the scissors,” one person remarked.
“This is so uncomfortable. What if she runs and falls? There is no reason for her to hold scissors in the first place,” said another.
In the same episode, fans noticed that Tori let Lilah sit on the counter unattended.
The 31-year-old placed her daughter on the counter and turned to get something out of the cabinet.
Lilah was sitting on the kitchen counter, unattended, with balloons and decorations around her for her birthday.
Tori then had her back turned towards Lilah as she sat down to talk to her husband’s dad, Matt.
She did turn around at one point to hand Lilah food but then turned her back towards her again.
TLC fans were furious with Tori and took to Reddit to comment on it.
“Who the heck leaves a toddler sitting on a counter? with their back turned? my heart was in my throat this whole scene. maybe Lilah just doesn’t move around but yikes!” one fan said.
“That scene made me really uncomfortable too. The whole time I don’t think I listened to a word they said lol. I’m not sure if it was just editing but it also appeared she walked away and left Lilah there for a moment too. I could never have done that with my kids,” another chimed in.
Many people said they thought it was lazy parenting on Tori’s part.
