I was watching Dr. Phil this afternoon and I teared up. If you didn’t see it, the topic for today was about identical twin boys, 16-years-old, that fight a lot. Now, it is my understanding that siblings fight. Listening to a local radio station, The Bert Show, the host, was describing his sons, 9 and 4 are constantly battling. He posed a question to his audience: what is the worst thing you have ever done to a sibling? The responses were hilarious, although I’m sure at the time the situations weren’t so funny to these individuals.
Soooo, with that being said, siblings fight. But the things these two boys were doing to each other and their parents were atrocious. They smoke illegal drugs, drink, physically attack each other, and disrespect their parents. It almost seemed that they hated each other and it was very sad. At first I was indignant and said to myself that I would never tolerate that behavior (and I absolutely still believe that)! However, as I was watching i realized how broken my heart would be if my boys did those things. I know that there are challenges ahead, but I hope that fundamentally my boys will be boys, not evil demons that I send off to boot camp!
