Favouritism
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

When one child is favoured over another, it sends the message to the child being overlooked that they aren't good enough and that they will never measure up. But even more to the point, when a parent calls a child hurtful things like "the devil child" or "the bitch from hell" or "our biggest mistake" it is cruel and emotionally abusive. By far and away, the number one hurtful statement abused children report hearing is, "I wish you were never born." The negative effects are long lasting, and leaves that child feeling hated. It falls under the emotional abuse category of rejecting.

You are NOT the devil child and you are NOT the bitch from hell and you are NOT a big mistake. You deserve to be loved and nurtured and treated with dignity and respect. You deserve to be here on this planet; indeed, the world would not be the same without you. There IS enough love inside both your mother and grandmother to give to you and your brother, even when the both of you are around. Favouring one child over another is wrong.

I urge you to contact Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) in order to talk to someone about what is happening in your family. Child Help is staffed 24/7 with professionally trained counsellors who will listen to you. And you deserve to have someone listen to you.

Of course they aren't right in himuliating you; they are WRONG!!!!!!!! You are not a devil and you are not from hell; you are an angel from heaven, and a beautiful one too; just don't ever let anyone think otherwise! The only devils from hell that I see comes from your mother and your grandmother.

prayers do work
by: Callie

prayers do work. You should ask God for help. Matter of factly, he WANTS you to ask him for help. This will help you to build a relationship with him. He has helped me in many ways. For example, when I was 4, my biological mother would leave me and my younger brother (2-3 years old) alone in the apartment while she was out drinking or doing whatever with guys all the time. And later on, as things got worse ( like neglecting us, couldn't take care of herself properly, etc.) God had me go to a foster home. It turns out that that foster home was the best thing that had ever happened to me. It was that family that took me in and took good care of me, and after being with them for seven years, they adopted me. My mother (one who adopted me) has led me to christ, so we are on that journey together, but alone as well. My friend, God will help you if you ask him to. You just need to be patient with the answer, but just keep your eyes and your heart open. He will hear you. God Bless
