I saw this picture circulating on Facebook, and as I read the question, I immediately studied the picture to find an abnormality. All I saw was maturity between parents and step-parents who are coming together in support of a child, and that’s the way it should be. Unfortunately, in today’s society, some families have a difficult time executing this parenting method. Believe it or not, it takes a village to raise a child and I commend this child’s parents for teaming up for the good of their son’s peace… and for their own. The picture doesn’t show what goes on between them in their everyday life. There might’ve been some conflicting drama before this picture was taken. We’ll never know, but from the looks of this photo, they’ve obviously come to some sort of solution. This photo convinces me that they’re in a much more balanced space, as opposed to many other kids who are stuck in the middle of parenting drama.

The only thing I see wrong with this picture is the question.
