HONEY Boo Boo's brother-in-law, Josh Efird, has some words of wisdom for her new, older boyfriend: don't screw up.
The reality star, whose real name is Alana Thompson, finally introduced her crush to the rest of her family, after Dralin Carswell surprised her at her 16th birthday party.
On the latest episode of Mama June: Road to Redemption, June's sister, and current Alana caretaker, Pumpkin, invited Dralin, 20, still just Honey's crush at this point, to the gathering.
Almost as soon as he popped in for what clearly was a surprise, Alana scooped him off and hurried him outside for some alone time.
But the blossoming couple's private moment would quickly be shattered by Josh, playing the overprotective father figure Alana never had.
After a cordial introducion, including shaking of hands, Josh laid down the law.

"There's only a few things…" Josh began. "She does live in our house, so the only thing I ask for is respect, honesty and to treat her really really good because she hadn't had the best mother in the world to treat her like she's supposed to been treated.
"If you don't do all those things, man, I'm just going to break your neck, ok?
A silenced and stunned Dralin could do little else but shake his head nervously in agreement, unable to speak.
"But," Josh concluded, "as long as you treat her good, that's the biggest thing."
