Landon’s Webb’s Story – the fifth estate

100 thoughts on “Landon’s Webb’s Story – the fifth estate

  • part of his disorders came from his mother!! she just brushed him off like a piece of hair on her coat. shame on her for not providing him with the love and stability that he badly craved. God bless you Landon.

  • Brenda keeps her son on purpose dependent of her so he can't 'grow up' and develop all the good skills he has…18 years and never made a bed??

    She's not worried about Landon living with Tiffany…he's doing fine! She's just extremely jealous at Tiffany. Her little boy doesn't need her anymore. Tiffany understands his needs and let him be who he is, loves and respect him for that. Giving him space to learn and develop himself. I hope it works well out for them.

    And Brenda Webb….get of the back of your son and get yourself a puppy!!!

  • Landon has a wonderful sense of humor, i believe humor like that takes a certain intelligence. The way he sees his situation and thinks outside himself says something to his intelligence as well. If he has any of the deficits his mom speaks of and he accomplished as much as he did on his own makes him extremely strong and capable.

  • Labeling people with so many of these conditions is cruel and unethical treatment which should cause people to question the reliability and hypocratic ethics of the authority who did it.

  • I wonder who was the Narcissist targeting him as a person to be devalued, belittled and depressed by the power of words, drugs and manipulation?

  • This young man seems to be far more competent than his mother believes he is. She made the terrible mistake of listening to psychiatrists & their damned "labels" and "numbers" as opposed to allowing Landon to live, experience and grow. He begged them to give him space and freedom. His mother was wrong, in my opinion to literally HOLD HIM BACK from any progress he could have made. He is smart enough to know what he can do, what he can't do and that all he needs is the opportunity to prove his capabilities and lead as normal a life as possible. He had a sweet and loving relationship with his GF Tiffany. They had no issues relating to each other and communicating just fine. Landon has the basic right to be free and have a typical life including family life with a person that he obviously loves. His mother INSISTS he cannot care for himself…..What's wrong with that woman? Can she not see he has done just fine while away from home and his parents not even knowing where he was.!! HE EVEN HELD A JOB AND SUPPORTED HIMSELF. It is a shame he had to be apart from Tiffany and his two children. This story has touched me deeply. I hope he is doing well and always will.

  • So glad he got out from under his mom, now maybe he can have a normal life with his girl and their beautiful kids.

  • In Edmonton, doing construction work. Landon had enough sense to get to the bus station, purchase a ticket, apply for a job, get it and work it. Seems that his "clearance" is resolved, he could go most anywhere there is work and be as successful as others.

  • she only taught him math and reading?? what makes her the official advocate for Landon because you have a child doesn't make you ward of him!! if your not in his best interest!! you didn't even let him make his own bed!! he wasn't even allowed to choose his life!!

  • glad your not my mom!! Landon deserves a life he wants desperately! he seems to know exactly what he want expresses his wants very easily! good luck Landon 💕 you deserve the life you want to lead.

  • Ok Momma Webb, you have failed miserably at being a mother!! No doubt about that. I've watched this video of your son and no way is this boy autistic. You are supposed to teach and nurture your child to give him the best chances of succeeding in life. Not handicap him to the point of low self esteem, insecure and lack of self confidence!! What were you thinking?? You're supposed to be his support system and give him the very best chances thru knowledge and experiences to be the best he can be. The Power of Positive Thinking is Everything!! You're supposed to be his personal cheerleader!! And by GOD, cut the cord and watch him SOAR!!

  • Landon is completely capable of living a life on his own with support from a caseworker from a government program that helps these individuals transition into members of society. He can get a job and they have many companies that hire individuals like Landon, they help them find friends who are in the same community. They also help them with life skills . This woman’s words are not supported by her actions. I don’t even believe that he has s proper diagnosis? She seems to have simply decided that he was mentally unable to handle life because he didn’t meet his milestones as an infant? She has sheltered him to the point of placing him in a bubble. How is he supposed to learn anything if she did everything for him . She seems to be getting something out of him having to depend on her. I don’t see her in a positive position at all , in fact I feel she has hindered her son his entire life. He needs to have his own attorney to help him sort out the legal issues and then he needs to work with an agency that can help him to build a life with out his mothers constant anxiety and her obvious fixation on his disability. She is part of the problem here in a big way.

  • Landon is a great guy! I think he seems perfectly normal. I hope he and Tiffany have a good life together raising their kids. I applaud Tiffany for hanging in there and being a support for him in spite of his parents interference which seems very extreme. I wish you both the very best!

  • This is what happens when people have no options. Everyone blaming his parents need to realize they were simply choosing the only option they had. Here in Nova Scotia our communities are broken. They have been destroyed. The only system still working here is the corporate welfare system. This entire province is in a healthcare crisis .

  • Wow, this is heartbreaking.
    I can’t tell if the mom was extremely naive and was mislead by “experts,” or if she was so fearful for her son she ended his schooling to keep him in the house with her all the time. The school should have some responsibility here, too. Did he really need an aide all day long? The school, if not the mom, should have known he needs to be as autonomous as possible and have time with his peers, otherwise they were aiding in his—let’s be honest and call it for what it was—abuse.

  • I have worked with the intellectually challenged for many years and a IQ is not an indicator of daily abilities. When I look at this young man and I see that he is more than functional maybe some slight supervision. What's going to happen when mom is no longer around. Landon is in a committed relationship with children and is being forced to live in what is essentially a halfway house like a criminal. Not to mention the difficulties of being able to bond with your children. This sounds like a very over protective mother who just can't let go and a law that is enabling her.

  • Landon won his independence. https://globalnews.ca/video/2792528/landon-webbs-parents-removed-as-guardians

  • What used to be called munchausen syndrome by proxy is now called factitious disorder imposed upon another (FDIA). These people are not so much sick as selfish. Such an evil thing to do.

  • Why don't they give him the documents he needs? and teach him to sign a lease. etc. Is it to control him more?

  • My Parents isolated me from others due to their religious beliefs. I an not disabled. I lived in fear of upsetting them, mainly by being myself. Parents like mine seem so similar to Landon’s.

    Isolation is like a prison

  • What a lovely young man and against all parenting odds. You are an inspiration. My son sounded a lot like you…I’m so pleased we didn’t wrap him up in cotton wool. I never wanted him to feel different. He was different but different is okay, I’m a little different…different is good. My son is now an electrician, married and owns his own home. Life’s tough enough without having parents/a mother against you like this. Lots of good vibes and wishes going your way 💞💞

  • Care workers do not go to work to be assaulted. Care workers go to work to care for the adult children parents give up on . Don't belittle assaults perpetrated on care workers.

  • these ppl r cruel! he can make it on his own, if his mother would let him! wow, let the kid go! FIGHT FOR HIM TIFFANY!

  • Gotta wish you had the 2nd Mother. If the Mother hadn't taken it public and fought for her daughter she would still be in a hell hole.

  • Omg lady (Brenda) GET A PUPPY!
    Accept the fact that your son is a grown man! He and Tiffany have children of their own. Unreal…
    Why does her husband stand by her?! .

  • Landon seemed more stable and happy with Tiffany… of course, I know him not, this opinion is based only on this program. A few more opinions… IQ does is not the determining factor for life skills, parents do not always know what is best for their child, many "professionals" are far too quick with strapping a label to a child's file and what is right for one may not be right for another. Sometimes, we are our own worst enemy, sometime it is our mother.

  • Some people satisfy only the biological criteria required to become a 'parent.' I see a very chilly no-frills and ill-supervised institution in Mrs. Webb's future, the second she shows the least symptom of needing assistance. But her son is nicer than I am.

  • He is not 70 IQ..no way ! He is much smarter than the score shows…wow…what wrong parenting ! terrible !

  • Good News.
    Landon Webb's parents give up guardianship as Incompetent Persons Act made invalid.

  • This guy was pulled from school so not only didnt learn social skills as growing into an adult but not taught to make a bed? Im teaching my 5 yr old granddaughter to do that. His mother is his disability. Btw mom, (boys) at the age of 40 hurt themselves being silly. What a sad story. I hope one day he sees the support he has in this comment section and understands we see him as normal not delayed or incapable! I would've liked to hear from the dad or siblings.

  • Only one thing wrong here…….the mother!. Now THERE'S your problem. Wow, how one person can legally ruin the life of another.

  • These parents especially this mother is terrible and actually abusing him. If you had him till 18 and didn't teach him basic skills like bed making then you are definitely the problem. You don't get to say "Oh he just can't do anything so he has to live with mom forever." You are holding him back. She needs professional help.

  • Judging at the Mom’s eyebrows I believe she is the one with Psychological issues. Just saying!🤔🤷🏻‍♀️ She took her son out of Elementary School, no wonder his IQ is low….Sad story!😢 Praying things worked out for this young man….🙏🏼🍀

  • This is crazy. He has NO low IQ !
    He is talking like a smart person. And he was denied education.
    How come these tests are just accepted?
    And why do psychologists not see what any sane person can conceive?
    They should be sewed to shreds!
    The mother should get a daily whipping! And his father is a weakling to be manipulated into this !

  • You go Landon ! You are fine. Take a deep breath , straighten your back and know you are perfectly normal.
    Everyone can see your actions and how you do the daily tasks. You are straight, look organized and intelligent.
    And such respect for Tiffany as well. She stands up for him and helps him to find all education that was denied to him by his own parents.
    The psychologists probably went along with the paperwork and just followed the rules like automats.
    Stupidly accepting what this Munchhausen mother had added into the files all these years.
    So her elaborate scam now is part of this “machine “ called the healthcare system.
    Turn the stick Landon! GET HER EXAMINED!
    You are used to accepting far too much.

  • Laden's Webb story is that if your child isn't happy in school I agree level of home schooling your child happiness is wat matters well done laden

  • Landon is articulate and has the skills that are not solely academic. He has a competent perfectly able girlfriend, who loves him and whom he loves, and children, so let him get on with his life. His mother is too possessive and controlling. She didn't let him be himself.

  • Something isn’t right with this..the mom just ran with his diagnosis he really was sheltered.
    If his intelligence was only based on his iq they are so mistaken….he seems like a regular dude.
    Leave him alone, let him friggin live.

  • Brenda Webb = the mother couldn't let go…. couldn't see it that he was able to live together with another person. Sure she must have put some whispers out to others, exaggerated when calling the cops, even set up situations! Some people are so over-possessive that it leans to be mean.

  • Brandon won!!! They overturned the previous ruling!!! Even better they overturned the Incompetent Persons Act, so it is now entirely invalid. Brandon you are a hero for so many people!! I am so happy for you!

  • Dam..Helicopter Mom Major! Let the lill dude make mistakes, that's how we learn n grow! Drag him outta his n the G/f place is messed up! Hell he was making it work, she the g/f had his back! Lord Mom! let Landon grow up! I was cut out of 3 cars before I got out of high school..lol. true as hell..My mom was glad I moved out..she still seen me in the ER "she was a LPN emergency room 2nd shift nurse" I seen the fear in her eyes every time I got carted in..poor Momma..

  • It seems to me hearing Landon talk that although he is disabled in a sense that he doesn't belong home under his mother's wing. I think she over exagerrated. And that makes me sad that she would want to keep him under her thumb. I certainly saw potential in Landon.

  • That fellas mam is the one with the issues. Talk about Cotton Wool Kids. She was ment to teach him and at the same let him learn from his mistakes too. Let him fall but be there for him when he's dusting himself off. God, it makes me angry. She's turning him into a victim.

  • I really hope Landon is now living the life he wants, and deserves, with his lovely girlfriend and their children. I know people with so-called "normal" IQs who are far less articulate than Landon. I'm sure his parents' heart was in the right place with the things they did trying to "help" him, they just went about it all wrong. Unfortunately, children don't come with instruction manuals. I hope their relationship has healed. I wish Landon all the best.

  • So if you’re capable of living on your own, having a girlfriend and kids, you can have your rights away and put into a mass home for people with mental disabilities? That makes no sense…that is so wrong!

  • He was living happily with his girlfriend. Why would you take him away from her? Why not visit him daily and include them in meal planning, bill paying and teach him the skills he needs to survive. This is crazy.

  • And to think if she would have put ALL that energy into helping him to believe in himself and let him really be free to be a person

  • I would love to see a follow up story on how Landon's story with his family be turned out excellent story disability or not everybody has a right to do what they want with their life and him having a family has to be a positive thing for his life I hope the outcome was good and you should really have a follow-up show on the outcome

  • Any competent midwife should be able to manage an umbilical cord release from the neck of an infant at delivery, should it be wrapped once or three times!!!!!( I have delivered a vast number of babies with cord's around their neck's with no compromise of the infant's well being post nataly) Cerebral Palsy occur's when the fetus/ infant is starved of oxygen becoming hypoxic for a greater time than.4min's + a cord can be clamped/ cut in second's.The management/ evaluation/ technological advances/ and early diagnosis/intervention during the labour have benefit both mother's and infant's significantly.I feel there would be a greater compromise significant in play to give rise to the cerebral palsy diagnosis,rather than just a cord around the infant's neck.Having the nursing more's would be interesting. I often find myself explaining such event's through habit and/ or to dispel any old wives tale's that can scare expectant mother's silly during the ante-natal period. Now at the end of the post I get to total up my year's of practice…………omg? really? nah? Yes,that long!

  • HOW CAN HER MOTHER SAY THEY PUT HER IN THIS HELL HOLE?
    SHE LEFT HER THERE FUR CRYING OUT LOUD & THAT WAS AFTER SHE SAW THE MAN PULLING HIMSELF ALONG THE FLOOR & QUESTIONING HUS DIGNITY.
    SHE SHOULD'VE TOOK HER DAUGHTER & TURNED RIGHT AROUND & LEFT RIGHT THERE & THEN.

  • . . . NICHELLE MAY HAVE DISABILITY ISSUES BUT SHE KNOWS RIGHT FROM WRONG & PHYSICAL ATTACKS ARE NOT EXCUSABLE.
    SHE CAN WALK & TALK & COULD'VE QUITE EASILY LEFT THE ROOM INSTEAD OF ATTACKING A MEMBER OF STAFF, THAT'S NOT WHAT THEY GET PAID FOR.
    AND FOR ALL THE HATERS THAT MAY DISAGREE, I DO KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT!

  • Brenda Webb is a b***h and a witch and she should be hung for the way she treats her son. How dare she put a label on him. Landon was doing just fine on his own. He is just like everyone else!! You didn't have another choice? You had to control him and keep him in arm's reach? You will go to hell Brenda 👊

  • I'm not sure of this and I could be completely wrong but I'm curious as to whether the Webbs were collecting some type of money for their son's disability usually the behavior of mother Webb is motivated by losing that source of income.

  • The second mother is a turd. She goes to take her daughter on a walkthrough of the facility, she sees a nude guy and she still lets her go there? the mother is complaining about the facility, why didn't she just have her daughter live with her? Both these mothers are the ones that have problem not their kids.

  • Godbless you Landon, Thank you for changing the Law. Becouse you have every right to be treeted fairly, under the human rights Law. Your parents 0and the ir advisors should be in jail. As they denied you freedom of speach and rights. Hats off to you young man. 🙏💐

  • Im in a situation where a specific client who is 21 , who needs to have his adult rights limited in some aspects … eats raw food . Gambles assistance away in 30 mins after he gets it . 40 g debt in 2 months .. but every case is different . And we need people who know how to make that choice by living with these people for up to 6 months to see the skills they have . And what they need help with

  • Heartbreaking. No winners here. Loving but overbearing parents. Kid with so much potential but doesn’t know how awful and complex the real world can be. Poor parents. Poor kid.
