Remember they are still human and in humanity lies frailties and when the lights go out, one is so lucky to reach out and touch the one who will always be there no matter what comes their way. l have never been to a concert, listened to Kiss's music but always heard of Gene's escapades.

Gene is willing to admit he is wrong and it seems to be very hard for him. But Shannon is being painted as a perfect angel by the kids, the therapist and by Gene. I have never been a KISS fan but am a fan of the family. I have been watching this for several seasons and Shannon loves to make little put-down Gene remarks, as do the kids. It is as if everyone gets to make fun of him and make their little digs, but no one seems to appreciate
My bets are on this family mustering their strength and love and coming back stronger than ever. I also think, while the content of this season deals with much sadness, it also teaches us all that education NEVER ends! Gene & Shannon are still learning - their kids are learning - and they are all facing a growth stage in their lives, a coming-of-age for all of them.
Gene is a good sport and generally takes the hard hits with a smile and some thought, though I think some of it has hurt his feelings here and there. He and Shannon are still open to new ideas and new ways of approaching life so I think they will come out of this quite well.
I get annoyed with comments that Gene is greedy. In that way, he's an old-fashioned man who believes that security for his family is what separates the men from the boys - and the bums. He also has his identity all tied up with success. Since he felt for too many years that his father left his mom and him to fend for themselves through hard times, he wants to make SURE that his children & Shannon never feel that pain too. He is too generous a man to be called greedy! He has given generously of his time, talent, and means to help others...and those people who accuse him of greed should be ashamed of themselves.
