    the most dangerous person in his life is Mom's boyfriend.  Ask any child welfare worker.

    If you think you're too small to be effective, you've never been in the dark with a mosquito.

      is abuse of their mother.  This is so terrifying and psychologically damaging.  And they grow up thinking thats 'normal'.  The effect is much more far reaching than most dream.  The social workers,  child welfare workers and child psychologists with us here can certainly address this best.

        My other observation is that once someone has crossed the moral threshhold and landed the first blow, from then on it's only a question of victim selection.
