    Yep...

    I just hated the fact that I could not ever be a child. I was always taking care of my sister, my parents when they were too drunk to do anything other than fall all over the place. I make sure now, that my kids have a childhood that they will look back on in life and hopefully...

    I Had No Control Of My Life

    My childhood was spent living and breathing however my mother wanted me to. Because of their businesses, my family was well known in our area and my paranoid, superficial liar of a mother always wanted to put up appearances. It was (still is perhaps) her goal to have everyone...

    When It Was So (Deleted) HOT!

    In the very early sixties, when we were still trapped in classrooms past mid-June, the teachers opened the windows to their maximum height and turned on huge box fans. That didn't help one bit, and we were pinning down paper with our hands or textbooks while we sweltered. One of...

    Too Much Of A Good Thing Can Be Bad

    I know my story doesn't come close to being as bad as others, but I hated my childhood and this is why. I'll be the first one to say that I lived the high life as a child. I was homeschooled but rarely did any schoolwork. I was an only child and was spoiled. I went out with my...
