would you cover for your child, like Jane did?

not sure if anyone here watches Eastenders, but just wondering if you would have covered how Jane did, for your child/if you would still support him after him hitting her around the head?

I don't watch the programme. Its a load of depressing shite.

But, yes I probably would, that's my baby.

Would I hell. Not for a shitbag like Bobby anyway, ungrateful brat that he is.

I don't think you could answer until you where heaven forbid ever in that situation.

Think one of my kids 'hitting me around the head' would signify we need help so no. Normal kids don't hit parents round the head

But last watched Eastenders In the early days of Angie and Den when it was fun. It's shit now

He's not her child is he? I thought his mother was Ian's previous wife.

I think the soap made it so we cant thinkg "would I?" it moved from the initaial action and went on to ensationalise it at every turn. bring all the other characters in? making someone else go to prison for it.
not getting help. it spiraled for 'soap' purposes so I don't think I can answer the question next to the current story. no matter what he did what followed became so very wrong.

I doubt I would cover as my other child would be dead. I would visit them in prison and continue to love them. sad

She's his de facto mother. This storyline is the reason I've stopped watching it. I know the people in soaps never call the police/doctor/fire service when it is the blindingly obvious thing to do, but Bobby's been off the damn rails for so long that even the usual Walford sociopath would've noticed they were out of their depth by February at the latest. And Jane's supposed to be slightly less sociopathic than the rest of them.

You know the secret Invisible Child Cupboard, where EastEnders children presumably go for long periods while their parents are having an adult crisis of yet another sort? Well, let me know when Bobby & Denny have been locked in it with Jane & Sharon wink I'll start watching again.
