What is wrong with people????? I can't read or see anything else about parents abusing, torturing or murdering their children in horrific ways.

Is it mental illness? What drives a person to kill a child....especially an infant????? It makes me want to take my little angel and go live on a deserted island because I trust no one!!!

  • I just want to hold and kiss my LO non-stop every time I read one and pray she NEVER runs across anyone to do her harm in any way.

  • It is very sad, and terrible. I honestly believe that its a serious mental disorder. i refuse to believe that anyone can be that cruel while being completely sane.

  • I tend to avoid those posts and articles. I know it goes on, it makes me angry and sad, and there is nothing I can do about it. I fave a very visual mind so I need to avoid those types of things. It doesn't mean I don't care. I quit trying to understand a long time ago. It leaves me more frustrated and sad.

  • Musicmom80.....I hear ya. I need to stay away from them too. There are just some things that I can go my whole life without knowing because it really stays with me.

  • I will never understand how someone can hurt their child. I had my son when I was young, things were rough financially and I was depressed-but at no point during any of that did I think "I need to get rid of him!" In fact, even when things were terrible he was the only things that made things WORTH going through it!
