    My father used to do some messed up **** to me

    and my two brothers. He'd lock us in closets, punch us, kick us, burn us, and even cut us. He'd yell at us saying we were useless and didn't deserve what we had. I knew when I was about thirteen I wanted to be a cop to stop kids from going through what I had to. When I was...

    More than half of the memory of my childhood is

    missing, and all I can remember is filled with verbal, physical and sexual abuse from all corners of my family; that's how they communicated I guess. What hurts the most is that everyone seems to have "brushed it off" as they have matured. Is it wrong if I want an apology when I...

    Child abuse is not the way.

    When my Mom abused me I was very angry and sad and I don't know what was going through my messed up head but I wanted to have children just so they could hurt a little more than I did because I learned from my Mom that children are born to do your work for you and take your...

    I WAS AN ABUSED CHILD,

    but I was also led to be good. When I acted out in rage, my friend Jared, who was beaten so badly as a kid that he was emancipated at fifteen picked me up and held me instead of yelling, or hitting me. He rubbed my back until I stopped fighting. In the tiniest, broken down...

    Throughout my life i never knew what abusing

    was. I thought there was only the physical abuse as a child. And if someone DID do that, the police would automatically send that person to jail. Of course, the way my mom treated seemed really normal. I thought that once you became a mother, you would do the same things...

    when I was a child, on two separate occasions. I was only six years old the first time. I struggle with this because I often feel like society is in denial about women who molest children.
