    I just don't understand yelling

    and beating your child. There are other ways to get your point across and the only thing you are doing is giving your child issues and they'll grow up to hate you as an adult.

    so no one sees the bruises and scrapes. I've gotten really good at covering up marks with makeup and making up excuse of why I'm limping. But I can't cover up the names she calls me or the way she insults me and puts me down. Bruises go away but her words still linger.
