    Becoming A Grandparent Is Not As Easy As It Looks

    I did write a story here last week which I later deleted.  I was angry at the time I wrote it and decided it would be better to post a story after I stepped back and gained some perspective on the situation.   I apologize to those who took the time to read it and...

    My parents are never happy with me and always find me bad and never happy with the things I am doing. They always get angry and then take the belt and punish me. I hate it.
