As parents, it’s our job to protect our children and for the majority of us, we get that right. But where some parents serve to protect themselves out of selfishness, it is the children that become the victims. Sadly, the recent sad story about Sherin Mathews reinforces that view. Beautiful angel.
My writing allows me to reflect on my own childhood experiences on what I had to deal with. My thoughts right a wrong. My blogs are a reflection tool, not so others will justify themselves, but so they can look and understand at where they could have done things differently.
No child should have to deal with abuse. Children are just children; we were all once children. What we must all take from our childhood, is that it’s up to us to change the way we perceive our lives, post childhood. We cannot change what happened to us, but as parents we can change our future and become stronger for our children.
However, our life plays out, others who are responsible and accountable for their part, still very much remain responsible and accountable.
