Child Abuse - People Who Should Not Be Parents

by Name Undisclosed
(Location Undisclosed)

I am totally appalled at the positive response that you have received about the mom who beat her son because she was distraught about money. O.K., my guess is that this is probably how HER mother disciplined her as she was growing up. Parents forget how they personally felt when the person who "says" that they "love" them can turn around and cause physical AND emotional scars that last a lifetime. My personal opinion is that parents should have to take parenting classes (and PASS) before they are permitted to take their baby. The world today is in a sad state because of the chain of violence that is inflicted on our future generations, all done in the name of "Discipline".

I have personally worked with these children for the last 15 years inside of a classroom setting for learning/behavioral disabled. The stories I have heard make me sick and protective of my students. I make no bones about it to my students that they are safe in my room and I will fight for them at any cost. Most have no support system, are at times physically abused and are told that they are a piece of garbage who are holding back their parents to live their lives.
My hope is that ALL SOCIAL CLASSES of parents would get educated about what works to raise happy, well-adjusted children who can grow to be positive socially-functional members of society.
Thank you!
