My family was very poor but I had a great childhood
my parents never got along, a lot of verbal abuse, the only person i had was my sister. i definitely suffered because of their negligence.. but i am who i am now because of what i have been through and seen.
Yes and no. The past is a reminder of what I don't want the future to be
No fortunately I was lucky. I just got yelled at a lot after hockey games. And yelled at for a lot of other stuff (from dad)
It was a struggle to make ends meet, but they forgot to tell us we were poor.
Yes my parents were only 16 when I was born. Neither went to college and when they were actually home just sat me in front of the tv while they slept. I always only had one pair of shoes and didnt get new ones till they were falling off my feet
Well it sure as hell wasn't no picnic. :(
It was a childhood of extremes, a prince in the lap of luxury, and a hippie kid seeing and doing stuff that no child ever should.
Nothing so lucky as that, I was treated like a abused animal would be, locked in a room when not in school, not eating normal food until foster homes got me, beaten often for many reasons including for my brothers word
Yes they did.Yes I suffered because of their mistakes.In a way, I'm still suffering, but things are smooth now.
It was character building.
