    I don't remember much of my childhood,

    but what I do remember isn't that great. I was molested by my cousin from the age of 2-4. That's my first memory. I was also molest on two more separate occasions but that's a different story. My dad was a drunk and my mom wasn't much better. She worked 3 jobs so she wasn't...

    The Latter Part Of My Childhood

    The first nine years of my life were mostly wonderful, although my mother was very strict. My childhood "ended" in 1981 when I was almost ten. That's when my brother Andrew, aged 8, was kidnapped by an acquaintance of our family and held hostage for three weeks. He survived and...

    Not All, But Some

    My mom and dad divorced when I was about 18 months old and I spent most of my time in my mom's house along with half-brothers and half-sisters. Yes, it was dysfunctional but I can't say it was horrible (I would be with my dad almost every weekend). When I turned ten, it...

    My childhood stopped at 11.

    I had to help bring up my siblings, due to my father working away and the childrens' special needs. In the later years, my mother was too ill to deal with it alone. I'm not bitter about it. My childhood was pretty rotten anyway, with only a couple of good years in between. My...
