    Stop Child Abuse

    As a victim myself, I would want to help stop child abuse.  Everyday abuse takes place and it needs being stopped somehow.  These psycho's have a sick mind.  The question is how do we do it?

    Something Useful

    Here's something that might be useful. When we train to become teachers, we're constantly bombarded with all of this information, plus more, so we're constantly aware of what could be going on. But the biggest sign of all, is knowing the child inside out and noticing any slight...

    Child Abuse

    I explained my story in another group "I Don't Love my Mother," so you can read about it there. I feel I would be a different person today if I had not been abused. I envy people who had normal childhoods. Parents that were together, no abuse, even if things weren't perfect at...
