Every single day you hear a new story about parents hurting their children. Parents shake their children to death, drown them, hit them so hard that their little bodies just shut down. It breaks my heart and makes me MAD. What I find so awesome about children is their innocence and ability to trust. Children will love you no matter what you do for living, no matter how much money you make, or how much weight you put on. Children will always make time for you and have a hug or kiss when you’re feeling down.
And this is how they are treated? NO! It’s not okay. It is NOT okay to hurt your child. Yet the court system continues to put battered children back into the homes they share with abusive parents. “Everyone deserves a second chance,” the courts may say. And I agree. SO GIVE THE CHILDREN A SECOND CHANCE! Don’t put them back in the home where a known child abuser lives. And for God’s sake. If you are the spouse of someone that is abusing your child, or has at any time in the past abused your child, GET THE CHILD OUT OF THERE!
Case in point. Eva and Joshua Mauldin. (Click on link below to view clip) Boy, this case makes me angry. Joshua cooked his baby in a microwave for ten seconds. And his loyal wife is standing by him. How do you feel after watching the video?
