It Keeps Getting Worse: Court Documents Reveal Mama June's 3-Year-Old Was Present During Anna's Molestation

If your 8-year-old child accused your boyfriend of molestation and there were court documents drawn up detailing what had happened, I’m assuming you would need to look those over as the parental guardian of the child in question, right? Is there any possible scenario in which “Mama June” Shannon has not seen the documents released this week, detailing the molestation of her daughter, Anna? More »

Stop Defending Abuse Because You Endured It And Turned Out ‘Okay’

Stop Defending Abuse Because You Endured It And Turned Out 'Okay'

I’m trying to imagine a situation where I could calmly tell my child to go outside and find me a large stick, take that stick, strip it to prep it, and beat my 4-year-old until he bleeds. I can’t because I’m not psychotic.

There is nothing okay about that. More »

To me, crafting an instrument to beat your child with is premeditated and sadistic. I don’t see how this could be acceptable to any sane person. More »

Man Who Beat Kids Unconscious Gets One Year In Jail And The World Gets A Rage Headache

A Wisconsin man has been sentenced to one year in jail and five years probation after beating two children unconscious with a spatula, spoon, and hammer. No seriously, that’s what he got.

A Florida couple have confessed to police to torturing two kids who were in their care. The couple in question, Jessica Rowland and Sean Pearson, allegedly subjected a 12-year-old girl and 11-year-old boy to “cruel and unusual punishment,” according to The New York Daily News.

I Believe You, It’s Not Your Fault Is A Site Every Parent Should See

I Believe You, It's Not Your Fault Is A Site Every Parent Should See

I believe you. It’s not your fault. 

The sentiment seems obvious enough, but it’s one that survivors of abuse don’t often hear. There is surviving the experience of abuse or harassment, then there is the debilitating isolation that comes from feeling like you have no one to turn to for help. A few simple words can make a world of difference to someone who has been violated – especially a young person. More »
