I am beautiful, I am wonderful, I deserve to be treated with repsect

Selina 1. You are all I say in my Comment Title. You are a child of the Universe. with real child feelings, beautifully innocent, sadly very vunerable as such. Hitting, beating, spanking, corporally punished, are all forms of abuse. from an early age I never liked Parenets who lashed out and het there children because the damage that could be done could be effect them for life. beating with instruments that are at hand sure can leave lasting effests on the innocent and vunerable child. That kick in your stomach certainly could have done alot of damage. Sellina 1 any form of physical punishment is abuse and wrong. Cultural or nations regulations don't jsutify it in my eyes ever. A chinese child is a gentle, sensitive, innocent, vunerable as any child in any part of the world. Abuse is abuse no matter where it happens to a child/teenager/ young adult. Please Sellina 1 Darlene has given you a way forward, think about what she suggested to you out of her care and concern for you. Sellina 1 she has a womans hearts especially for little girls/young women. She knows the dammage a kick in the gentle stomach of a child. Always believe in yourself. be as safe as is possible for you. Have a friend or two to walk and relate to in total trust. If possible get involved with team sports, cultural activities, with your friends, class mates, having a healthy mind in a healthy body is a must for each of us especially as children and young people. Your Parents may realize you are gifted and that when they see and know you will be showering and mixing with girls your own age they may cop on and not bruise or mark your beautifulness. Think about it Sellina 1. I will, I can, I must, Hi, I know I am WORTH it. good on you Sellina 1.

From Darlene: Maurice, I feel obligated to let you know that although showering with your mates might have been the norm when you were growing up (and perhaps even now as adults), that is not usually the case here in North America, especially with girls. Girls are tend to be very shy, and are far more likely to shower behind the privacy of a curtain, so I ask that you please refrain from making such references. In this part of the world, it is very easy to take such wording in a way that you likely don't mean.
