     Yesterday, while sitting in the waiting room waiting to be seen by my doctor, there was a woman, a young girl actually.  She had her name or a name tattooed on the back of her neck. I noticed because I sat directly behind her.    On her lap was a...

    What the Hell...

    Why would someone even think about hitting a crying child, or a child period! I mean, that it totally and completly messed up, on all levels! It just makes me sick that someone would do this to a child, but I do know it happens.

    I don't get some people's logic.

    "Oh, your crying is ******* me off, so I'll slap you, which I see now only makes you scream louder because it hurts and you're embarrassed now." Obviously slapping is not the answer, and people are just stupid. My gram used to do that with my sister growing up. When you slap a...

    I Don't Remember What I Did

    I never remember what it is that I did when I was 6.  Later I remembered why he hit me, but never when I was little. What I do remember, was my dad slapping me. I didn't see his hand coming, just felt the open hand strike my face, turn my whole head sideways. I immediately...

    Lost Touch

    Hello, I am lying in my bed alone, My wife no longer sleeps here. It's all too complicated to explain, but, the lonliness is dreadful. I really should leave rather than absorb the hurt she can clobber me with so easily but then I would miss my kids. I have now spent far too...

    Makes My Blood Boil

    When I see this happening I just want to scream at the adult..WHY?????  Is it because you are too stupid to find out and understand why they are crying?  It is that you are so uncaring to find out if there is some discomfort that they are experiencing?  Are you too...

    Why ELSE Would They Be?

    It just compounds the problem, whatever it might be. Maybe the adult feels better after doing it, but as a spanked kid, I can tell you they feel worse. I know I did. You know if the child in question is yours whether he or she is going to shriek and carry on, especially after a...

    Crying Child

    It better never happen in front of me cause if it happens, nice as I am, I will turn out evil and, I may smack that person instead.  One thing about me, I am very protective when it comes to children and no one needs touching or hurting an innocent kid / child / baby, no matter...

    Hint, Hint, Dad!

    I was probably six or seven and I was going to have a sleepover at the end of the week. My dad resided to not let me go so as many seven year old, I had a temper tantrum. I started crying and he hit my face. I started crying even harder. He hit me again and again, each time...

    It Only Makes It Worse

    I got this before-I-give-you-some-thing-to-cry-over several times - and, several times, the end result. I was quite vocal before, during and after a bare-bottom spanking and Mom didn't stint when it came to a followup. It was bad enough at home, but when she took me shopping and...
