Did anyone else see the DR. Phil about the MOMS ....

Posted by   + Show Post

that hated their own kids? Where I live it was on yesterday(thurs,Nov.8th) 2 Mothers, actually had the bravery(?) to go on his show, and tell him they hate their children. They have told their daughters they hated them, they wished they would go away.

One mom's dd was 14 and autistic. I think part of her frustration was not knowing about Autism, but this mother also has major unresolved issues of her own. Yet, dad didn't step in, when the abuse was going on!Mom screams at this poor kid all the time, hits her and pushes her. This family, was given complete testing for the dd, for a proper diagnosis, and then the tools for the mom to be able to help her dd and deal with her, counseling for mom

Mom #2 actually tells her 10 yr old if she had a gun she would kill the dd then herself, and beats the child with a belt until the mom is out of breath. She tells the dd to run away and don't come back, and wishes someone would kidnap the dd. The maternal Gma has offered to let the grand daughter live with her, and the mom refuses! Mom doesn't see any of this as child abuse, and actually told Dr. Phil she has to raise a black child differently than a white child is raised.  Dr Phil asked her why she was there if she didn't think it was child abuse, and mom said, she didn't want to do something irreversible. when asked what that was, death? Mom said yes. Yet still doesn't see what she is doing as child abuse. She was offered counseling for her and her daughter.(mom said she didn't want to be a mother and realizes not all women are made to be moms but the kid is here now)

I don't usually watch this show, but I was in tears for both these kids!

 I'm so sorry! hugs

Quoting rtenboer:

I delt with horrible verbal and physical abuse growing up. There were times I thought my mom could have easily killed me. My sibblings did to. I finally got up the nerve the other day and im 29 to tell my mom exactly what she did to us. She has blocked out most of it. She would go into blind rages and beat us with what ever she could get. She broke one of those hard plastic liquid filled batons over my brothers back when he was thre or four. I was so scared to come home after school. I would sit behind my instrument in band I played the marimba and I would just cry. I wanted to go into social work when I first started school but I decided I would beat up a parent who abused their kid. I cant stant parents who do this to their kids.

I don't understand it myself. It has to be mental illness.

The mom with the 14 yr old was abused as a child,& she saw her mom stab her father in the heart, yet her father didn't press charges, then she left her to be raised by her father.

The second mom, just said, she realized not everyone should be a mom or raise kids, but her daughter is here now, so oh well.

How sad. :( My DH was told all his life that he was a mistake. That they never wanted him etc.. I just don't see how anyone can do that.
