Child abuse

I really cannot understand how ANYBODY can purposely hurt a child and not care about it! I just read a story about a 22 year old woman beating her 11 month old baby boy to near death and then left him outside by himself on the porch while she texted his father to come pick him up because she was going to kill him if he didn't.

This is disgusting. How could anybody ever be so cruel?

I am 21 years old and I hate my baby crying when she gets hungry so I try to look for her signs before it gets to that point..... I just don't understand it. It makes me so mad.

    I think that is so amazing! My Dad when he drank was very abusive, but totally changed his life around when my siblings and myself were adults and was even a Pastor for a few years. It is amazing what faith can do. I am so glad that we were all able to forgive him, he is the kindest, sweetest man you could ever meet now, it took us a long time to get there but I wouldn't trade my Dad for the world now.

      Raising a child is hard and some people just honestly do not know how to deal with the stress of it. Not that it is an excuse for them and they should be punished if they ever hurt a child. I wish people would get help before they get to that point. I feel so bad for the poor babies that have to go through it.

        I don't get it either. My heart hurts every time I see those sad news articles. I don't always read them but I see the headlines.
