Why do parents abuse their children? My story will answer you!
I was taken from my mother at the age of six because she would beat me, or just slap me around hard enough that I would end up hitting inanimate objects. I have seen the pictures in my file from when I was taken. I could never imagine hurting a child like that. According to my file, my biological father was murdered when he was found with a neighbor’s teenage daughter. My biological mother was left with mixed up emotions. She was lost and found her “savior” in alcohol and a slew of illegal drugs. After the state took me from my mother, she went to a hospital to detox. She had a chance of getting me back but after a month of detox, she was so depressed and angry at herself for hurting me that she hung herself. I think parents that abuse their children have seriously rooted mental issues. It may come from not knowing how to deal with stress or even being abused when they were children. No answer makes what they do right, by any means but maybe if a mental disease, or a lack of coping mechanisms is noticed before the abuse starts, more children would probably be safer and be able to stay with their own parents.
