This Sickens Me
I raised eight girls into adulthood. My partner and I never hit them.
We talked, explained, gave examples. We were parents - we taught.
To think that someone would harm a child because of their own breaks in character revolts me.
People need to remember that parents are people first- with their own host of difficulties.
People with emotional disturbances bring those issues into a parenting circle.
They should not become parents.
