I LIVED! And no my parents were not abusive. I can count on one hand how many times I got spanked. There are countless times I should have.
You’re the child, you have parents (most of us do). Then you have children and you’re the parents. Your parents become the child and you parent your parents; maybe your brothers and sisters; possibly on down the line. Pay backs can be hell, but most importantly, you are a family. Take care of and love one another. That would be a good start, for a peaceful world.
Its Sunday, August 30, 2015; Parents! Do you know where your children are? Kids! Do you know where your parents are? Sadly, many don’t.
