I would like to extend a hand to young mothers, single mothers or just uneducated mothers that are looking to raise their children the right way, but don’t have anyone to get advice from. I would answer any question, honestly, without judgment.
I have raised a thoughtful, considerate male child and though I made mistakes I am pretty wise.
If you don’t know how to discipline a child without pain or humiliation, please, ask someone. And if a boyfriend ask you to treat your child in a manner that makes you question if it’s the right thing to do, don’t do it. Just say no.
Protect your kids.
— the Bible
Where is the outrage about the abuse to the children? I keep reading article after article in which a child has been found dead in a box, or one has been discovered dismembered in some weirdo’s fridge, or a 13 year old that was kept in a cage like an animal while other family members went about their day. Where is the OUTRAGE for the children?
The Christian Right that stand out on the sidewalks to prevent abortions from taking place, WHERE is their OUTRAGE? Why is it so important to save a fetus, and then simply ignore the torture that some of these babies could be exposed to for years?
We can turn our heads and look the other way, but eventually, all the chickens will come home to roost. Sometime, either now or later, society is gonna be faced with a dilemma. Severely abused children are not gonna be any better off mentally than all of the Iraq and Afghanistan War vets that come home suffering from Post traumatic stress disorder. These children that survive these horrific abuses we keep hearing about have been TRAUMATIZED, and most have been traumatized by the people they call “family”. They won’t trust anyone, will be isolated from a society that did nothing to help them and who knows what will be their thought process on hurting other people.
I think it’s time that we stop celebrating the fact that these mega-rich drink 195,000 dollar bottles of champagne, and start lending our resources to better things. If we don’t step up to look out for the children, I’m afraid we will all be sorry.
Remember, we “Reap what we Sow”. What we are sowing are some very bad seeds.
Today makes me sad. I am so very ashamed to see what is happening to us. I read today that 4 people in Indianapolis were jailed for trying to sell a baby. A 36 year old woman had a baby by a 58 year old man. They were selling the baby to a 57 year old convicted child molester and his 50 year old girlfriend for 300 dollars. The couple already had a 4 year old and an 11 year old that didn’t belong to them. The 4 year old belonged to someone in Alabama and the weird perv couple was paying the mother of the child 200 dollars per month to keep the child in Indiana with them. I can’t even begin to imagine what those poor babies had to endure at the hands of the weird pervs, but I just want to vomit. These people will never get the punishment that they deserve, unfortunately.
- A $1 billion cut to HIV and disease-prevention funds.
- A $3 billion cut to agriculture programs, the biggest portion of which comes from the Women Infants and Children fund, which loses $504 million.
- A $390 million cut to low-income heating assistance; Community Development Funds are cut by $942 million.
- Contributions to the United Nations and other international institutions are cut by $377 million.
- $45 million pulled from nuclear nonproliferation funds.
- A $650 million cut to federal highway investments.
- A rider tucked in by lawmakers from Western states that allows states to remove wolves from the endangered species list.
Please, take note of the cut to the Women Infants and Children fund. For those of you who aren’t familiar with that program; its WIC they give vouchers to poor women so that they can get milk, cereal, peanut butter and those types of nutrition for babies and toddlers. I used that program, as did many other young single women that found themselves in need for their CHILDREN!!!!
I would just like to extend a HUGE “shame on you” to ALL the lawmaker’s who have no moral conscience and can vote to take food and formula out of the mouths of babies and toddlers while allowing corporations to keep all of the billions of dollars they make by making in China and selling here in America and not paying one cent in taxes.
You people in Congress will be known in history books (if they don’t burn them) as the ones who ruined America and brought down the Empire. Good luck to you, cuz you are all gonna need it. I hope you have enough money to pay for your own safety when there is no more law and order.
I am embarrassed to be a citizen of this country and you people should be too.
