Diply Social Team

Imagine becoming a parent to your younger sibling overnight, with no support from family. That's the reality for our 26-year-old protagonist, who took custody of his 14-year-old brother, Isaac, after their drug-addicted parents disappeared. Fast forward to the present, Isaac is now 18, emotionally dependent, and living at home while attending college. One night, Isaac and his friends decide to drink and drive. Big brother steps in, but his choice of punishment leaves us questioning if he went too far. Let's dive into the story. 🍿

A Lesson Learned or a Step Too Far? 🤔

After a night of underage drinking, Isaac and his friends decide to hit the road. Big brother intervenes and forces Isaac to watch disturbing drunk driving videos as punishment. Isaac freaks out, but later admits he was more upset about his brother's anger than the videos themselves. They talk it out, Isaac promises never to drink and drive again, and the two bond over a peaceful drive. So, was this punishment too harsh or a valuable lesson for young Isaac? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🌐
