Snowdrops are toxic and eating them can lead to dizziness, nausea, diarrhea and in extreme cases, death.

Jenelle shared a video of herself and Ensley picking flowers in a TikTok clip titled: "Teaching Ensley about Spring."

In the video, Ensley ran over and gave a snowdrop to Jenelle, who asked: "What did you get us? What are these?"

Ensley twirled the white snowdrop and said, "flowers" before sniffing it and saying, "smells good!"

Jenelle smiled and inhaled the flower's scent herself, prompting Ensley to go in for another deep sniff.

The MTV star then tried to teach her third child about the seasons, explaining: "It's getting warmer out, you know what that means?

"Spring time! Because it's going to get hotter and the grass is going to be green."

The Teen Mom star's fans praised the cute clip but some critics urged Jenelle to be more cautious around potentially poisonous plants.

"Just be careful, those are toxic," one follower warned, to which Jenelle replied: "Thank you for letting me know! I had no idea! What are they called?"

Another added, "Definitely poisonous! It can cause a lot of issues. Google it," while a third posted: "Yes. They can cause dermatitis but are toxic if ingested."

Jenelle shares Ensley with husband David Eason and has two more kids – Jace, 11, and Kaiser, six, with different partners.

It's not the first time the reality star – who was diagnosed with a rare spinal disorder this week – has faced backlash over her parenting of her kids.

Earlier this month, she slammed for allowing Ensley to wear socks with what appeared to be a "pot leaf" design.

She shared a video of her little one walking around wearing one blue sock with the motif on it, writing: “Yup… she’s my child."

Jenelle defended her daughter’s attire and the video, explaining: “We have a ‘sock pile’ in our house that has random socks and do not have matches."

She added a shrug emoji and said she "told her to get her socks and didn’t realize it.

Earlier this month, the reality star was branded a "horrible mother" for feeding her kids an "unhealthy" breakfast of biscuits and gravy.
