I LOVE THIS! This picture is worth more than a thousand words. I've referred others to your blog for this picture alone (although they usually end up reading a whole lot more!)
Thank you so very, very much for your sharing and caring, understanding the power of words (and clearly, physical abuse) as it impacts a child and the enduring legacy that's left as a result. Those broken bones, bruises and so forth heal. Adult children that have been subjected to "only" words which they don't yet "get" as a form of abuse and therefore feel some how less than deserving of understanding: "It wasn't THAT bad, I didn't get burned/whipped" etc. Abuse is abuse. Period, the end. All parents react angrily at times-tired, stressed, what ever. But it's NOT a "....pervasive pattern of interaction" with their kids. Their very real abuse NEEDS to see a picture of the impact of verbal abuse perpetrated on a Little One to allow them to feel it's OK to acknowledge to themselves the reality of "what happened." The issue isn't about comparing-it's about sharing.
Thank you for sharing. Your personal integrity and honesty shines throughout your blog.
