fixing the broken child

Reply Thu 3 Nov, 2011 12:32 pm
I've spent all my emotions and all my energy for 30 years, trying to fix my broken child. This is a phenomenum inherent to motherhood. The sorry world is rife with deviance that is supported by mothers harboring guilt complex. Yet, there comes the day even the mother faces the adult male who is dangerous; and if she is lucky, continues her life. She is all the while concerned for the anonymous females who will be subject to a handsome polite and extremely volatile male at large in society. What do we do now?

make sure he's seeing a therapist?

and maybe you would benefit from talking to someone on a professional level as well...

good luck.

Of course. This is what anyone would do. It might shock you to find out that there are a majority of towns in the US that don't have psychiatric care at all and are not located near any facility at all.

There are a majority of jobs that don't offer medical insurance that includes psychiatric service or the like and further, if there were somewhere nearby, it would cost more than $100 per visit when you make $7 or $8 per hour - or bless you, less.

Well, the issue is moot. My 30 years at this is over and it's the saddest song in the wide world.

you're not gonna shock me.

I live on the prairie in an abandoned travel trailer built in the 50's on the back of a run down chicken farm 3o miles from the nearest medical center. and have been surviving on what I can make in my garage.

lower cost counseling is hard to find sometimes, but it is out there.

not knowing your locality, I have no real advice on where to look first...

Hello Community,

Children come in all shapes, sizes, colors, gifts, talents, and personalities. They come to us in little packages of perfection, so tiny, so precious, so fragile, we wrap a huge blanket of protection around them their first few years. Broken kids, with broken bones and broken lives, are hard to fix. We can't just take a shaken baby to the hospital and expect it to be alright. Once the baby is broken, the damage has already been done. Many times the destruction is irreversible. Kids can be broken in a number of ways, physically, sexually, and psychologically. But when a child is murdered—it's a break that no one can fix!

Best Regards,
David Bushey
