Child abuse is the hardest thing for me to deal with at my job. I don’t understand how a parent could hurt their child physically or/and sexually. The parent was probably abused as a child, but this is not an excuse to hurt your own child.
The abuse creates pain and anger in the abused person. It’s the pain and anger that makes people spiteful and want to hurt others. Some may not believe in counseling, but hurting your child or anybody is not acceptable behavior. It just continues the cycle of violence when choosing to be abusive.
In my previous blog, I talked about processing anger and pain. If a person holds onto the anger and pain, they’re not only hurting others…they are hurting themselves.
