Because everyone is someone's child, every woman seems like someone's mother.
What distresses me at times is that I meet a lot of people in their 40's, 50's, 60's, who still say they're a victim of child abuse.
My parents told me that children were taken from their families in 1941, and my mother had a child taken from her - with the goal of saving him.
Before you beat a child, be sure yourself are not the cause of the offense.
