I hear so often that people should 'mind their own business' when it comes to what people do with their kids.
So, those that were abused- (assuming this was the case with you)how many of you are glad that so many people just 'minded their own business' or just 'put their trust in the parents to do what is right for their children?'
what makes so many think that all parents are interested in doing the right thing for children?
Or has anyone considered that parents may have been abused themselves? many who have been abused come out of it with a distorted view of punishment.
So those that were abused, do you think that 'minding your own business is the right way to go?'

I was abused every way you could imagine. Even landed me in the hospital due to dehydration and malnutrition. NOONE ever helped me. They all " minded their our business" and I grew up being hurt daily. There was one time my mother beat me so hard with the belt I fainted. My brother said when I stopped crying mom hit harder to wake me up. My step father would hide under my bed then crawl in with me. He would slam me in the tub and toilet. There was even one time when I was 4 he tore each pair of my underwear in half telling me they weren't sexy enough. Abuse went way on til I was 15. Even then I was beat for no reason almost daily. I remember once I came on from school ACTUALLY HAPPY for once to be home and as soon as I walked thru the door my mother grabbed me by the throat and slammed me in to the wall. What to know why? She thought I took her sock. I called CPS they did nothing but tell her what I said. cont
