    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.

    My ex wife abuses them every day.

    Now she wants full custody. Can you believe that? She wants full custody when she just abuses them. She's probably gonna get it. How the hell do stop this?! They're just 13! They're still so fragile and impressionable.

    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.
