Child Abuse Story From Alyssa R

Lonely Soul: 
I guess you would say that is much more of mental abuse rather ; physical.

My mom and i got along wonderfly!
Until the seperation of both my mother & father.
Things started to change when i was about 7-8 years old. My mom becamse frusterated, mad, & upset. I felt her need of love, she never really had any friends, and we never really get out much. Me and her are always fighting, constantly.
My dad was always my favorite, fun, funny,
friendly. But he doesn't want me . & I hate him for that. I'm still trying to talk to my mother. But since her & I don't have a stable relationship. I can't. "You can't miss what you never had." I tell myself repeadily.

But you did have a stable relationship with your mother, before the separation, so of course you'd miss not having it now. Besides, ALL children want that from their parents; and when a child doesn't get it, s/he believes there is something wrong with him or her. Nothing can be further from the truth. You ARE worthy of love and of having a wonderful relationship with BOTH your mother and father. This has nothing to do with you and who you are, but rather, it's about the troubles your parents are dealing with. They don't know how to cope, and you seem to be bearing the brunt of it. Please consider contacting Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) in order to talk to someone. They are staffed 24/7 with professionally trained counsellors who will listen to you.

I know how you feel
by: Alayna

I know how you feel. The same happens to me but I have a step dad now. I still feel like I dont have a connection with my parents. Im the oldest out of my siblings and I pretty much get the short end of the stick on everything.
