    When Children Hurt Themselves

    I was talking with my daughters and the subject of "cutting" came up.They told me so many of their friends females and males young and old are into cutting themselves.I asked why and they told me to feel the pain. What keeps anyone from seeing the scars? They cut places on...

    No Soul

    I can't imagine what kind of a monster one would have to be to physically abuse a child. I have looked into the eyes of said monster and can tell you they come in all shapes sizes and colors though. I just think that to abuse a child mentally or physically, you have to be a...

    Brief moments come in your life often,when the mind's eye gently courses through the river of your past.Those moments could be either joyful or present a mixed bag.For me,life in childhood was a true checker board of experiences.With a typical middle-class setting,boyhood had a...

    I Think Killing Children Is Wrong - Even In War

    The shameful actions of my country bring tears to my eyes, the shameful murders of tens of thousands, maybe even hundreds of thousands of children on our planet for the greed of a few evil men is the worse thing that can happen to the human race. How can we sit by and do...

    In Moderation

    I do agree, they don't need to be hurt physically. But a child does need to get his feelings hurt, at least once. That way he'll know "john doe" hurt my feelings, but life went on. I got over it-time didn't stop, the world didn't stop spinning..i handled it..one way or another...

    Love A Child

    Children need love to help them grow into adults who will be able to give and show love to others. Not be violent and abusive to others. No one will ever have a child that's perfect the child will need guided by a spat on the behind or talked to or time out which ever way works...

    The Title Speaks For Itself!

    I just wonder what people really think when they have children, and decide to basically ruin their childhood. Whether it is physically, emotionally, or just abandon them. Why would you ever want to hurt something that is fragile, can't protect itself, and needs nurturing and...

    Vengeful Children Need Love, Too

    Laughter Is The Language Of The World

    The World Is Already Bad Enough

    Kids should be able to be kids. To grow up in a loving environment. Punished when they did something wrong but not with hitting them.

    Not Just Children

    Everyone deserves love and no one deserves to be hurt no more than people should be allowed to hurt others. Children are no exception.
