My mom and sister are elementary school teachers and they’ve told some horror stories. One little girl was abused by her stepfather…at least physically, probably sexually. She had cigarette burns up and down her spine and around her breasts. The mother and stepfather locked her in a closet and abandonded her. Neighbors eventually knocked down the door a few days later when they heard her crying.

I don’t think it’s possible to recover from stuff like that. It makes me sick. And so, so mad. 🙁

@Minutiae, no that is not something that anyone can recover from. If a child can’t trust the very people who are supposed to love and protect them, then they shut down and don’t let anyone in.

I didn’t open the link just because I can’t stand to read about people abusing children. My question though: is CPS ever called in to rescue these children since their legal guardians obviously don’t give about their safety and welfare?

Ms sweets, thank you for sharing this. I work with children with special needs and about 25% of my clients are in state custody due to abuse and trauma history. It is sickening to know what happens to some children in the hands of sick parents, especially children with special needs. I think it is important for the public to be aware that abuse happens and for federal and state funding to support care, education and treatment services for these famililies and children.  It is far too common and NO child deserves to feel unloved and unsafe.

This just disgusted me. I cannot imagine, as a mother, to allow your baby to be so abused at the hands of someone else. I would sincerely hope that if I saw a child within my family being beaten to death that I would get that child out of that situation ASAP, no matter what. Take the baby and run.

I am a total advocate for animal rights. I don’t like the way we treat animals, whether it be for food, entertainment, etc. But just when I think we can make progress with this, I read stories like this one and I realize just how far we are from any animal rights movement. If we treat other human beings like dirt, then nothing else has any hope.

RIP Baby Peter.
