I hate child abuse–as a child, I experienced various degrees of abuse, so I can’t stand to see any child abuse in any way. And, there’s absolutely no excuse in the world for it, except in cases like mine where my abuser was/is mentally ill. However, even then, there are resources availble to families of the mentally ill to ensure the child(ren’s) safety. And, if a child is being abused, by a mentally ill parent, they should be removed from the household. Period. Why? Child abuse leaves emotional and mental scars that remain long after the physical wounds have healed.
Please watch the video below. Please note: The video is not suitable for children:
Imagine what a wonderful world it would be if no child were abused. Would we rid ourselves of career criminals, serial killers, etc.? Sandra Hanks Benoiton blogged about an Web site that makes the assertion that kids that are adopted (and probably those that have been victims of child abuse), have a higher rate of becoming serial killers than the general population.
If that’s true (and I’m not saying it is), but if it’s true, could we completely change criminal behavior by just protecting our children from abuse? Tell me what you think?
Also, I’m looking for information related to single parenting and child abuse stats and, more specifically, infanticide (where the parent takes the life of his/her child(ren). If anyone has information, please send me the link by leaving the informaiton here.
Peace, love and blessings
