I’m sitting in my studio right now listening to screaming from next door. There is a young couple there; they moved in a year ago; both in their late twenties. They have a five year old son and a one year old daughter. Did I mention they are screaming right now?
In fact, they scream quite often at each other, and the screaming moves outdoors on occasion. F bomb this and F bomb that….you rotten F…er….you Bitch….and eventually she gets in the car and roars out of the driveway.
Easily the loudest and more experienced screamer of the two is the wife. She has one serious set of lungs on her and she does not hesitate to call her husband every name in the book at the top of those lungs.
I wonder several things as I listen to them screaming about him leaving dirty dishes in the sink. I wonder what kind of modeling she received when she was a child….and I wonder what kind of modeling she is doing for her children….and of course, the same can be asked for him.
I wonder if their children will grow up thinking it is perfectly normal to handle disagreements by screaming and cursing.
I wonder if these two adults have any idea what kind of damage they are doing to their children.
Just some random thoughts this Wednesday morning.
