So many people fail to realize that a child can have a true mental illness that causes them to be violent or act in ways that are unacceptable. Everyone always wants to think that the child must have been abused, that there are bad things going on at home, or the parents encourage or allow such behavior. Many times, this is absolutely not true. Sometimes parents are at their wits end not knowing what to do with their child that seems so out of control.
The fact is, there are great parents that produce awful kids at no fault of their own.
There are also completely horrible parents that produce wonderful kids through no accomplishment of their own.
