When I think back to how awful Robert was as a teenager and Aaron too, I'm less inclined to jump on the lets hate Liv bandwagon. Tonight we had two grown women acting more childishly for far less understandable reasons. Liv will not be this way for ever. She's testing her brother's loyalty, yes, but Robert's done that to Aaron many times ( and in worse ways) yet he's been forgiven far more easily. Aaron is an incredibly loving and forgiving person, so he's bound to go easy on his only sister.
Aaron and Robert were terrible and far worse than what Liv is like now. The Liv hate, I roll my eyes at most of the time, sometimes she gets on my nerves but people only don’t like her because she’s in Aaron and Robert’s life and people just want to see them sucking face every five seconds and not be a family, so anything she does wrong they jump on her. What would punishing Liv tonight have achieved, not a lot. She was feeling insecure because she thought if she did something wrong then Aaron would kick her out, yeah she was testing boundaries but all she needed was some reassurance and that’s what she got. She wasn’t doing anything malicious. That’s not to say she doesn’t need ground rules because she does but she’s a teenager, all teenagers act up at some point wether they are punished or not. Aaron might be her guardian but he’s also her brother and he missed out on a lot of her life so he is trying to be that too. Not sure why people are making tonight it into such a big deal.
