Rabbi Shmuley Boteach of TLC's Shalom in the Home says that although Todd and Lisa are loving parents who adore their child, the issues in their marriage were affecting the whole family.
The rabbi videotaped the family in action and focused on Todd and Lisa's fighting to teach them a very important lesson—what arguing in front of children can do to them.
"They're very vulnerable, and they absorb that volatility. And suddenly instead of having peace at their center, which children should have, they have chaos at their center," Rabbi Shmuley says. "You rob them of their innocence. They're seeing things that children should never see."
