Thread Starter 
Just came home from a walk, &on my way towards my apt the children were playing outside, one started to cry very suddenly. A girl whos mom i am familiar with went to him, but right away his own mother came out very suddenly yelling "what happened" & he didnt answer , so she pushed him &asked/yelled it again, he cried harder & said "he pushed me", she pushed the other boy saying"whatd you do that for huh", he denied it, so she says back to the little one "why you crying then""stop crying", he got more&more loud, she says "go inside", he starts wailing "no, i didnt do anything", she says "then stop crying!", & to the other one she says, "keep your hands to yourself or i will whip your behind", the little one still crying&starts heaving his breath.........i kept walking home...i feel so worried about protecting my child from influences out of my control,its a cruel world out there, i almost feel guilty for bringing my child to life...deep breath.....if anyone wants to share what moved you to tears today, i will listen.

It can be a harsh world but your child will have you to show the way. We can't protect our children from everything but we can choose how we parent and respond to them and what we teach through our actions. You will be a very caring mother and would respond with kindness and compassion if your child was upset for whatever reason. Take a deep breath and take note of which families to avoid in your neighbourhood - that's all you can do for now. hug.gif
