    Hi, I’m sitting and watch your tv show and it was about 2 sisters get into their faces and I feel that the social worker should take the kids away as its bad environment for those kids and maybe that will shape up those two teenager act like wake up the call. It made me sad to see those don’t get along and its all bickering and little fights for what? Thank you for listening!
