    I Lay There Wondering Why.

    When I was younger, my mom and dad would beat me. Mostly mom, though. She'd do it whenever I made little mistakes, completely normal mistakes, or if she'd had a bad day. For some reason she took it out on me. Most of the time, I didn't even understand why my parents hit...

    Was Beaten As A Child

    I was beaten when I was a child. back in the 80's it was call disapline. I called it painful. It was either a slap in the face, or multiple butt spankings. There were days I could not sit. But that was called tough love. Or so I am told.

    My Step Dad was like a Nazi once.

    He blamed me for everything. The littlest things pissed him off, and he always blamed me for it. I was always beaten for it.

    Who Deserves This?

    I used to be beaten when I was a child, not as badly as a lot of other folks--probably because I was a girl--and the thing that hurt the most was one of those ping-pong paddles with the rubber covering that has all those little bumps in it. If my sister and I were kids today, we...

    By My Dad

    My dad used to beat me for no reason. But sometimes he did have his reasons, I remember one time he kick me down the stiars because I forgot to take out the trash. I wish he wouldn't of beat me but he did he was a drunk. I do hate my dad because of what he did to me.
