BBC "House Rules" Week 2

I hope everyone is having a good week and is enjoying the book. It's sooo much different then the last one!

Week 2 Prompt: In the book Theo talks about how he's scared to have kids and doesn't ever want to have any. Do you feel his feeling are valid?

As always, what are your feelings about the book this week?

My answers- I think they are valid mostly because he's so young. I'm sure as he gets older his feelings will change. I hate how Emma has pushed him aside, I think if she did a better job at making the family life more equal, he wouldn't be so bent out of shape about everything. He life is all about Jacob, she sees right through Theo. It makes my heart hurt for him.

I'm really enjoying the book. I know where its going so I don't want to say too much.

Link up!

I agree. He's too young to realize that not all families are like his but too old to for things to change.

Happy Reading!

I feel the same way! I think Emma needs to find a way to include Theo more. By her always putting Jacob first it makes Theo think she cares about him more and it also makes Jacob think that is how things should be! She should have taught them from the time they were little that they both needed "alone" time with her. Then Jacob would have thought THAT was normal!

I hate how she pushes him aside as well. It's sad that she can't find a way to make it more equal, she obviously knows that's what she is doing, so you would think she would try to change it.
