I truly don’t understand how a family could take in a child and push the child aside, collect that child’s money and not love the child. I don’t understand how you can hit, kick or just hurt any child or person, your own child or someone else’s.
How can anyone abuse another person let alone a child?
Im hurt by stories I’ve heard about child neglect and abuse.
You may not have physically hurt that child or called that child names or told them they are worthless, but have you ever treated that child with all the love and care in the world? I hope you said yes, if you answered no truthfully..,,,
You have neglected your child!
Maybe he or she isn’t your real son or daughter, but you took that responsibility and you felt you could be a good parent. So be a good parent!
What do you thinks gonna happen when he or she becomes an adult, a mother or a father?
Let’s just pray that he or she learns from your mistakes and becomes the best person he or she could be.
Let’s hope someone can reach out to you and your child. Let’s pray that you will see the error of your ways. Let’s pray that your child will forgive you and love you more than before. Let’s pray your child becomes a great success in his or her future. Let’s pray that your child can cope with everyday life and never give up on success, happiness, love and god.
What is normal to you, may not be the right kind of normal.
If you, or someone you know has been or is being neglected, physically abused, or is being exposed to illegal drugs, inappropriate activity or sexually abused, please call your local department of human services, child welfare service or child protective service intake number.
You can also dial 911 if you feel someone is being harmed and needs immediate attention.
Remember, a child cannot defend themselves, but we can help protect them. It is our duty as human beings to protect and love our children. Stop abuse now, before it’s too late.
If you are being abused please get help now! Stop the abuse before it gets worse or better yet stop abuse from happening. Make a change in your life, that’s the only way to stop violence. Tell someone, anyone!
Kids, please don’t call the police if you are not really being abused. That’s not cool. Kids do that all the time, but there is a reason why you felt the need to do it. Talk to someone, anyone. Let us help you get through it, whatever it is.
