    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    Vengeful Children Need Love, Too

    I Think Killing Children Is Wrong - Even In War

    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.
