    It just makes me so mad.

    How could someone hurt a child intentionally? Reading stories of child abuse just makes me angry at the person who hurt the child, especially when I read about adult survivors who still have such pain in their lives.

    Seriously! We have so many requirements

    for getting a pet, but you make a baby and it's yours. No one bats an eye. They require you the have a license to drive, hunt, fish, etcetera.., but anyone can have a baby. Why isn't there a test? A baby license?

    It Sickens Me

    I have a friend that was abused by her father for almost her whole life, I saw the effects that it had on her. I don't understand how someone can treat their own children like that, or any child for that matter, it's disgusting and it messes up their whole life.

    Why can't people just be nice to children?

    Why can't people stop beating their children up? Don't they care about how their children feel just a little bit? Children aren't meant to be beaten, they're meant to be loved. Don't you see how many children commited suicide because they're abused? Can't you see?

    When i was younger my sisters dad would beat me

    when he got upset or angry. Sometimes he would just yell at me for no reason. He called me fat, disgusting, worthless etc. He took all his anger out on me and i used to believe i actually deserved it. Not anymore and im glad he left.

    Children Love Unconditionally

    For those of us who have children I want you all to think of this. How many times have you had to discipline your child, (the correct way), and think to yourself that he/she is going to hate me the rest of today; only to have them come up and give you a hug and kiss 20 minutes...

    I think what I despise the most is

    when you suspect child abuse, but really can't do anything about it. A stranger you pass by on the street. A momentary look in a child's eyes as they pass you. The things you sense, but can't confirm. Today, my 2 1/2 year old daughter and I went to Walmart to exchange an item...
