Nothing makes me more angry…

…than reading about parents that abuse/kill their children. Being a mom I just cannot fathom anyone harming their kids or letting someone hard them and then trying to make excuses for it. If your husband/boyfriend/significant other beats, threatens, sexually touches, puts in the microwave/oven, holds underwater, throws off an overpass, etc. your kids…why the f*ck are you standing up for them?? So what if they are mentally unstable, that doesn’t mean you stand up for them…that means you allow them to get the help that they need.

Even so…“the devil made him do it” is not even close to a valid excuse. (Let’s be honest, there really are no valid excuses for such behavior.) He/she still needs to be put in jail/institutionalized …because if there was a devil and he did make them do it, then they won’t be able to do it anymore if they are behind bars/in an institution.

Also, if you know abuse is going on and you choose to ignore it and/or blame your kids…you deserve to lose your kids. Stop crying about it and proclaiming your love for your children, you obviously didn’t love them enough to protect them…just give them up to people so they may have a better chance somewhere else.

AND…

Yes I am on a rant here…

AND…

Do you REALLY think, HONESTLY, that seeing one parent beat up/abuse the other parent is good for your kids??? I mean…really? You REALLY think that? You don’t think that getting a divorce or leaving is worse for your kids than them seeing their father (or mother!!) beat you to a pulp every night because you put too much onion in the soup (or other such nonsense)?? If you don’t want to leave because you are scares…say so. If you don’t want to leave because you don’t know how, ask for help. If you don’t want to leave because you think you are doing well…ok fine. But NEVER use the kids as an excuse to stay in a bad marriage. Never use them as an excuse to stay in any kind of marriage, actually.

And if you go back to said loser after leaving and your kids hate you for it…you can blame no one but yourself.
