A mother has come under fire for refusing to reveal which of her two sons is biologically hers. The boys were born within six months of each other, but only one is biologically related to the mother. Despite this, the mother has full custody of both children and doesn't believe that biology is important.

However, her family disagrees and wants to know the truth. The mother's refusal to reveal the information has caused tension and arguments within the family. Some family members think that the mother is being selfish and that her actions could cause problems in the future. Others believe that the decision should be left up to the boys themselves.

What do you think? Is the mother in the wrong for refusing to reveal the truth in this situation or is she within her rights to keep it private? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
