I just saw somethng in Safeway today that made me think...it made me think of children living with abusive parents. I feel so sad for those kids, they feel so alone. They blame themselves, they think they're bad...they're scared.
They often don't even realize they're being abused.
The idea of telling a teacher or another adult is scary too, because the child has to live with the consequences of telling.
The consequences can be more abuse.
Abused children go to school and are either quiet and get no attention, or act out and get a lot of negative attention.
It breaks my heart how isolated they are.
