You said that everything nurturing you learned in others, but in the same paragraph you indicted that you learned nothing positive. Somewhere along the piece you learned to be a good father, whether that was through observing someone or not, I can't say. It's quite possible that you learned to be a good father by making the decision to do for your children what wasn't done for you. In other words, you vowed to be a good dad, a dad who would give to his children all the things you didn't get from yours. In other words yet, you managed to turn pain into power. Your children did not suffer what you suffered; there has to be great pride in that. Especially given what you endured as a little boy. You weren't "disciplined", Rex, you were abused. And you broke the cycle of abuse. I commend and applaud you for that! Feel free to write more if that helps you. Just know that with 50 or 60 or more submissions in queue at any given time, it often takes upwards of 3 weeks for me to post them live on my site. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Rex, your so-called mom is wrong. You are not bad; you are a good person who did nothing wrong. You are not stupid; you are smart and articulate. She is a truly sadistic brute and she should've known better and loved and cherished you. Oh, and I can't even believe that your Dad would abandon you to the so-called care of that sick excuse of a mother as well as those equally sick monsters who helped her abuse you and even allow them to beat and berate you everyday...how dare he! That's not discipline; that's torture and abuse! They are so twisted and screwed up in their own ways of thinking that they don't even know how to take care of themselves, not to mention be parents/caregivers to you. Oh and making jokes about you getting into trouble really shows me how uneducated and ignorant they really are. Oh, and did I mention that they even went so far into setting you up for failure? That's not about teaching you skills nor teaching you to do some housework; it's just all about power and control. I believe that they are manipulative people and I'm sorry to even believe that they really wanted you to fail just so they could keep controlling you. Oh, and you are not to blame for their nearly sadistic behavior; they are to blame because they chose to use and abuse you. You were the child; they were the adults; they had all the power and they only misused it over you. You deserved so much better than what they did to you, so you don't need your terrible, ignorant monster of a mother. Oh, and what they did to you isn't love either; again, it's just all about power, manipulation and control. However, I'm glad that you're in a safe place now; I just hope that you will try counselling.
