  • Children learn what they live so if the child is pathetic then the parents taught him/her how to be pathetic

  • I responded to that lady - I just plain was sick about what SHE is doing to this 3 year old with the name calling and the yelling and the comparing to her other children and how she must be at home and pregnant with # 4 ? some people shouldn't be able to reproduce at all!!

  • i have said bad. my actions and my words after and since have explained why. I never asked for forgiveness I said what happened before that episode that made me react as I did. My son and I have grown tremendously since then and we were good before then. My words did shock and sting.
    As he is now an adult with a lady he loves I remind him to support her emotionally and to respect her no matter where their relationship goes.

  • i just hate hearing parents cuss at their kids. My dad did us when we were kids...i remember how scarry it was and how "little and useless" it made me feel.

  • I just feel horrible for her kids... yelling is one thing - yeah, it happens but to call her pathetic and weird and crazy and compare her like she's just totally off the wall or something - and to totally justify her behavior - no wonder the father consoles this poor child.
