VERY troubled parents...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Your fears were so callously disregarded, Rob, fears that many little boys (and girls) have. Both your parents had serious problems, problems that left you unsupported and living in constant fear. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me. I'll post Part 2 of your story tomorrow.

You have found a place of Love, care, concern,
by: maurice

Rob, you have found Darlene's site, you had the confidence and the courage to tell her and her visitors your story. be assured she acknowledges and believes each one's story. She is a good steward of her site. She has written loving/caring concerned words of hope to you. She sure is right when she tell you many boys and girl live with hidden fears during their childhood. Good Parents, Loving parents would know these naturally and comfort the child with loving hugs and affirmations that they are there for them. Your mother and Step Father were the opposite to that. You were unlucky to be born into such a family. Not you fault, The one day none of us have a say in is our Birthing Day. Your Step Father was cruel/sadistic knowing you had a fear of the dark and locking in your room. I can identify with you Rob. To this day I need to sleep with a certain amount of light in my room. Rob your childhood was ruined, homes, foster parents and not knowing where you ssiter ended up make it so for you. The abuse inflicted on you was very wrong. Now that you have found Darlene's Site you can begin to say I LOVE ME> I am the most important child ever born. We all have to acknowledge our birthing day. I did at 33 after been born into s single mother situation at a time when mothers like mine were ostracised by the community and by the church. My mother held onto me and we both made an understanding of my birth at the age 33 when I talked to her about it. After the parents you had, YOU must now make a sense of your birthing and begin to live your life to the full. Build up your own self worth, self esteem by accepting yourself. erasing all that happened to will take time but now that you have found Darlene's site you can begin healing. You have a friend or two who will encourage you to seek the help you need. Talk to a therapist or counsellor to begin with. You'll be fine Rob. I can, I will, I must just for me. Think positive, act positive and be positive each day you wake up. Be alive, awake, alert and enthusiastic about getting help. I love ME, I'm Special, Thats me in the MIrror. Always believe in yourself.

My heart went out to you this morning
by: maurice

The number one person we must trust in myself. Rob Part 1/2 I read slowly through part two of your story. frightening reading to know a father/mother could be so indifferent in their loving and rearing of you. Not being aware of their chiuldrens needs/fears/hopes/anxieties at the tender ages. Cruel/cruel thay were Rob 1>2 Now that you are rearing two beautiful children the huge thing for you is to build up trusting them, valueing them, respecting them, something your parents never did to you. Allow them to be children with the friendd who are also children whom you know and value. Building a trusting relationship with your children is all of the battle in genuine rearing and nutiuring them into loving caring respecting teens/adolecents and human beings. Rob I amcertain you'll treasure your chuildren lovingly. They will be your blessing to trust yoursefl and them. Healing comes from within yoursefl, don't be afraid to seek professional help of a therapist. be re-assured you are fine and dealing with the awful abuse meted out to you by your Father in particular but aided and abetted by your Mother who should have known better. I am sure your sister and yoursefl can console each other by talking things through from time to time. Please let go and don't dwell on those horrible memories. You are a good man, You are a good Father to your children.
