3 Questions Your Sons Need You to Help Them Answer

Robin Williams was an amazing talent. Although he was an unbelievable comedian, I always enjoyed his dramatic portrayals more. One of his most powerful scenes came in the movie Good Will Hunting with Matt Damon. Damon’s character, Will, had gone through foster care. During that time, he had been severely physically abused. Williams played his therapist and repeats to him over and over that it is not his fault. He never deserved nor should he have ever been treated that way. Will was violated and victimized by cruel people. Will’s consistent response was that he knew it wasn’t his fault. Deep down though, he didn’t know it. He just knew that was the right answer. Deep down, there were unanswered questions, “Was I deserving of abuse? Does anyone want to be with me? Am I worth anything to anyone?”
