I have always gathered information inside my head trying to figure out, "what makes parents hurt their children so badly?" Well I know! I finally got the story out! I got the help from the stories that my friend [BLOCKED] always told me about her experience of going home getting hit for no reason!
Growing up, I always have been a messup. I always tried so hard to do my best at what my mom asked but I tried so hard, something went wrong and my mom would get mad at me.
The more you explain, and talk… the more angrier your parent gets.
I would always make mistakes, I get nervous a lot around my mom because shes so pudgy, I just make mistakes. The more I explain, the angrier she is. When I wont shut up- POW! She either smacks me or hits me.
my mom always told me, "tell me whatever is on your mind, even if its mean. You can even say 'mom, your a _______"
And when I do that, she gets mad!
Its the mistakes, the memories, experiance, and every catastrophe that our gaurdians have faced in their young ages. That's what make abuse travel around the world!

On Friday December 16, 2011, Ayla Reynolds, a beautiful blond haired, blued eyed toddler disappeared from her father’s home at 29 Violette Avenue, Waterville, Maine. According to police, Ayla’s father, Justin DiPietro, 24, put Ayla to bed Friday night and awoke Saturday to find her missing. Police have said several other adults were in the home, including one non-relative. Ayla was living with her father while the girl’s mother, Trista Reynolds, 23, was in rehab for substance abuse. Trista Reynolds’ family said that the 20-month-old had been taken from their custody by the Department of Health and Human Services and placed with her father. Trista’s other child, a 8-month-old boy, remained in the Reynolds’ family custody. Reynolds said Ayla, who broke her arm at her father’s house two weeks ago, had begun showing mysterious bruising on her leg. However, Waterville police chief Joseph Massey has said the girl broke her arm during an accidental fall.

Monday, police towed two vehicles in front of DiPietro’s house. Massey, would not say why the police seized the vehicles, or what authorities might be looking for in those vehicles. Seized were...

This is the Stop Child Abuse spot and whaat this man is doing is child abuse in a horrible way. Well, There is the Man (if you can even call him that) named Joseph Kony. For 20 Years now he has been abducting children, forcing them to become sex slaves, kill their own parents, become child soldiers, and mutilate people's faces. And they are no older then teenagers. Some even as young as 6 and 7 years of age. Now this is not Happening in the United States but it is happening in Africa. Now some people in other countries might be like why does this concern us but it really does. Joseph Kony is moving his "army" from place to place. Now if you have a younger brother or sister or just anyone younger then you imagine this happening to them. These children do not end up being freed...they end up dead in a grave. And if they dont't obey the same thing happens to them. But we can change that...this year in 2012. On April 20, 2012 after the sun goes down and everyone is in their houses..we are going to cover our cities with "Kony 2012". We are going to make him famous. Why? Becuase famous people have no privacy. They can't go anywhere without being recognized. And that' s what we want to...

I used to think that life wasn't that good for me,loving in an apartement in the heart of New York but that was before I met my Best Friend Thea. She would always come to the classroom(1st-7th grade) with Bruises on her a purple and black face was her trademark around school,people made fun of her I was one of the few who didn't. I asked one day in 7th grade if I could go over to her house once she gave me a sad no with If I'm late again Dad will surly give me a long beating and she ran forgetting my question or pretending to at least.
Not listening to her request for me not to come I went to her house to tell off her crappy excuse for a Dad,but what I saw changed my life forever. There was Thea getting slapped by the monster she called her father,when he was done he threw her at the wall and said that if she wasn't a good girl she will get another one. I was disgusted by him I went In thank god I had my phone with me I called an ambulance and the police,they came in ten minutes when they found me and Thea I was trying to wake her up the doctors let me go in the ambulance with Thea. my Sister went to check on me at the hospital I told her veything my younger sister went with...

Hey everyone. I thought of this when I was dwelling in the past. Tell me what you think

Day after day I live in this living hell.
Keeping quiet of what happens behind closed doors.
Behind closed doors I am my Parents stress reliever.
Behind closed doors I am their punching bag.
Behind closed doors the pain never fades.
Behind closed doors the screams never silence.
Because behind closed doors nothing is ever the same.

It was hard to write because I was thinking about the past but I did it anyway. Please stop child abuse because Behind closed doors you never know what is happening

This is another poem I found but this one is anonymous

Looking back on a time and place

Seeing a child's innocent face

Knowing that things aren't as they appear

For inside she cries silent tears

Deep inside she is filled with pain

She feels dirty and full of shame

Innocence lost at a very young age

Locked this child in a pain filled cage

There is no freedom or escape

From the fact this child was raped

While the guilty man is roaming free

This child is sentenced to eternity

Eternity locked away with all this shame

She can't help but feel that she was to blame

Even though common sense says it was not her fault

She can't seem to help from having these thoughts

What ifs' keep running through her mind

She keeps going back to those moments in time

Hey everyone. This poem was written by Pamela Prentiss-Harrison


The night falls gentle upon the earth

but hard within the heart of a terror-filled child.

There is no peace this night

but a sentry-like awareness of

every noise, every movement

within the house.



A silent prayer is taken upon the wings

of the mourning dove

who waters the ground below with its tears

watching puddles form where each drop lands

forming a new ocean of sorrow.

There is no peace this night.



The tender child draws itself

into a tiny ball as if to disappear

... footsteps are heard in the hall

"please no" is whispered, "please go" is prayed

as the doorknob quietly turns.

There is no peace this night.

Children deserve love, home, loving people which care for them, security, education, life, chance, respect, hope, future, health, support, safety, justice, independence and much more things.

They just want the simplest and most basic things in life, but instead they get this:
hatred, violence, indifference, death, pain, homelessness, starvation, loneliness, rape, childLabor, disease, sorrow, escape, compulsion, injustice, misery, exploitation, trafficking and much more things.

We should really protect them from evil, because they are our future, our descendants, our flesh and blood. But we are the ones who do them all that and expose them to all.
For us, it's easy to do such things with them and treating them, because they are smaller and weaker than us. They can’t defend themselves and must surrender to their fate.
We should use the animals as our model, because they care for their children, they love them, give them a life.

Children have rights - and we should be aware of this so they can live a normal reasonable life.

Have you seen my Childhood?
I'm searching for the world that I come from
'Cause I've been looking around
In the lost and found of my heart...
No one understands me
They view it as such strange eccentricities...
'Cause I keep kidding around
Like a child, but pardon me...

People say I'm not okay
'Cause I love such elementary things...
It's been my fate to compensate,
for the ChildhoodI've never known...

Have you seen my Childhood?
I'm searching for that wonder in my youth
Like pirates and adventurous dreams,
Of conquest and kings on the throne...

Before you judge me, try hard to love me,
Look within your heart then ask,
Have you seen my Childhood?
People say I'm strange that way
'Cause I love such elementary things,
It's been my fate to compensate,
For the Childhood I've never known...

Have you seen my Childhood?

"Little Susie"

Somebody killed little Susie
The girl with the tune
Who sings in the daytime at noon
She was there screaming
Beating her voice in her doom
But nobody came to her soon...

A fall down the stairs
Her dress torn
Oh the blood in her hair...
A mystery so sullen in air
She lie there so tenderly
Fashioned so slenderly
Lift her with care,
Oh the blood in her hair...

Everyone came to see
The girl that now is dead
So blind stare the eyes in her head...
And suddenly a voice from the crowd said
This girl lived in vain
Her face bear such agony, such strain...

But only the man from next door
Knew Little Susie and how he cried
As he reached down
To close Susie's eyes...
She lie there so tenderly
Fashioned so slenderly
Lift her with care
Oh the blood in her hair...

It was all for God's sake

When I was eleven years old, my mum’s new boyfriend moved in with us. I thought it would be good for mum cos she had a drinking problem and was depressed, and I thought it would make her feel better having him there. At first he was ok and bought me presents, but then mostly he ignored me. Then after a few months he started doing things that made me nervous, like when I was at home alone with him he’d walk around naked. Then he asked me to touch him – I tried to avoid him all the time, but sometimes I couldn’t and I was scared to tell him to stop.
I didn’t know how to tell mum what was happening cos I didn’t even know what to say. One day when I was 13, we were fighting because I said I hated him (mum’s boyfriend) and she got angry with me. Then I told her how she doesn’t know what he does when she’s not around, I said ‘he tries to touch me’. At first she said I was making it up and exaggerating. Then she said I shouldn’t wear skimpy clothes around the house. It upset me deeply because it seemed like she didn’t really care about me and she didn’t blame him for what he did, it was like she thought it was my fault. I started staying over at...

This is a short story I wrote about a twelve-year-old girl named Katie. It is not real, but still sad.

Katie’s Time

I sit in school, looking at the clock. I begin to believe I am the only one dreading summer vacation, believing that I am the only one wishing I could stay in school all day, all summer, forever. All the kids are making the most of the last few minutes of class. They’re signing yearbooks, getting phone numbers. I sit. I wait for the worst.

The bell rings. I stand, trying not to cry. I had never had to go through a summer like this before, because my mom died last year, at the end of the summer. And my dad had blamed me. He was right, it was my fault. I caused the accident that had killed her.

We were out school shopping. I was so excited, my first year of middle school. When we were driving back from the store, we had been talking about what I expected, about the new school. I was so excited, I accidentally dropped my soda. I got worried, my dad didn’t let us eat or drink in the car, and my mom said it was one exception, as long as dad didn’t find out. He wouldn’t hit me or anything,...

Hi my name is Brittany I am a vitcim of child abuse and I have been for many years.I am posting my story to help stop the silence of this terrifing realitiy.



For as long as I can remember i have been hated by my father and brother.I am the worse tpye of child there is.I have commited the worse crime a child can commit.I killed my mom,she died on the birthing table with me,It is my fault she is gone and my alone.Thats why I am a demon child,my father has called me so many times.

My father has never hesited to raise is fist at me,to make me bleed or to see me cry.My fear was something hew enjoyed seeing.Now I will say this he was hooked on heaevy drugs that and his haterd for me made him do things even the most worse parent wouldnt do.

My brother was more emotionally abusive then physical he would call me names and scare me alot,like after one of dads rages my brother would find me crying and would say its all my fault becuase of mom that I do not deserve to live.That would make me cry and wish to god that he would have taken me instead.

My mask is slowly crumbling. It is getting harder and harder each day to pretend everything is ok. I know I have to wear a mask made of stone, but every stone cracks once in a while and mine is just beginning. And when my mask finally comes off, the truth will finally be here. But until that day, Until the day my mask falls off my face I will stay standing In the hallway of pain, right in between the doors of Love and Hate, waiting to see which door will open first. Not screaming. Not breathing. Just waiting. Waiting for the day that someone saves me. Saves me from another day of beating. Waiting for my mask to fall of my face. Waiting....

Hey everyone. I found some statistics on child abuse. It's sad. Very Sad

•A report of child abuse is made every ten seconds.

•Almost five children die everyday as a result of child abuse. More than three out of four are under the age of 4.

•It is estimated that between 60-85% of child fatalities due to maltreatment are not recorded as such on death certificates.

•90% of child sexual abuse victims know the perpetrator in some way; 68% are abused by family members.

•Child abuse occurs at every socioeconomic level, across ethnic and cultural lines, within all religions and at all levels of education.

•31% percent of women in prison in the United States were abused as children.

•Over 60% of people in drug rehabilitation centers report being abused or neglected as a child.

•About 30% of abused and neglected children will later abuse their own children, continuing the horrible cycle of abuse.
