  •  The issues are the same (3+ / 0-)

    Even as an adult, the issues are essentially the same. We are powerless to stop what is happening.

    And as to verbal abuse, I take issue with this:

    I was never abused as a child
    Verbal abuse is a form of emotional abuse, and as I mentioned somewhere upthread, it is tough to recover from. I'm sorry that happened you you.



    I don't know about Chris Martin, but I do know why Saint Peter won't call my name.

    •  You know ...I don't know what was worse (3+ / 0-)

      from Mama.  Never having a conversation and going for days without speaking...or constantly telling me I was doing EVERYTHING wrong.  Of course there were whippings as well...Which were very acceptable in the day.
      The leather strap or switch...  Daddy?  never raised a hand or voice to us.  
      Thank you Bill.  
      Jack had it worse... I was whipped.. He was beaten by his father.  This is very common in southern families.
