How Wrong, How Disgusting

by Sierra
(London, Ontario, Canada)

I am a 17-year-old student still attending high school, and I am doing a research project on child abuse. I have just finished reading the book, A Child Called "It." I can see and understand how wrong it is and how disgusting people are to want to hurt someone so close to them.

I believe there is no reason to harm a child, or anyone. It solves nothing, and only makes the abuser feel worse. How could hurting someone ever make you have a feeling of relief or make you feel better about your own problems? There is never a reason to hurt anyone. There are other far more effective forms of punishment. It's not the child who has done something wrong; it is the abuser who has done wrong. Get a stress ball or a punching bag. Really, it's all a matter of maturity and how you look upon a bad situation.

Hitting someone only makes a bad situation even worse. So to whomever abuses anyone in any way, I would like to tell you to grow up and deal with your problems the way normal people do, not by hitting someone so helpless.
