In The Last Straw, by 'Mary', she described her experience of being abused by an adult. Not just any adult, but her father. I found it difficult to read, especially when it was written in vivid details. I felt the pain of her bruises and aches. A father is one of the most significant roles of a family; he's supposed to support the family and provide love. His children are supposed to look up to him, he is supposed to be their hero. None of that will happen if you treat your kids badly. It's disgusting and you shouldn't have children, if you only intend to use them as punching bags, or objects to take your anger out. We have feelings too, and that should be kept in mind.
