Yeah, anyone who suggests calling in SS obviously hasn't had them involved in their lives before. They don't immediately take the kid/s away, but they make your parents (and in some cases, even the kids) lives a living hell.
The funny thing about these buereaucratic twits is they for the most part don't have kids of their own. All they know is from pamphlets and crappily organized Lifetime movies.
I'm sorry...but until you live it, you don't know shit. No book can prepare you for parenting. It can help you set a plan, but no kid is spot on to the guidelines.
Growing up, my bro and my sis both had DSS called in on my folks. They never found cause to take us away, so that tells you how bad my upbringing was. But every home is different. So in some eyes, it might've been a house of horrors. In normal eyes, it was a typical family.
As for parents laying their hands on their children. Hey, if you **** off and deserve a slap or two, I'm with your folks. But as for unprovolked attacks...well, there's nothing against bringing in outside sources to settle things down.
^^ I AGREE WITH THAT GUY! ^^
If I were a black man...I'd call my penis the Oreo Fun Stick.
Daz, you do realise Social Services take the kid away and not the parent? Sometimes life in Social Services can be worse than home. You just have to suck it all up and wait until you reach 16 and move out on your own.
It doesnt need to go that far. And sorry if you though that was what i was implying. Sometimes it just helps to have someone from out site the family to come in and talk to you all.
Slam, I have been in Deco's position, SS were called. And for a time things were better. Sometimes it can help.
Deco, I hope things get better for yours and your familys sake.
If you mean,having no trouble with parents,then its me.I had no problem at all with them.'Course,I got slapped by my dad too,but only when I deserved it.
Sorry to hear that Deco™.
THE DESTRUCTION OF TRIPURA - THE THREE CITIES OF MAYA "--The Year became his bow; Kaala Raathri the Death-Night which is Rudra's shadow, became the indestructible bowstring of that bow. Vishnu, Agni and Soma became the arrow. The universe is said to consist of Agni and Soma. The universe is similarly said to consist of Vishnu. Vishnu is, again, the Soul of the holy Bhava (Rudra) of immeasurable energy. And due to this the touch of that bow-string became unbearable to the Asuras. Sankara cast on that arrow his own irresistible fire of anger, that which was born of wrath of Bhrigu and Angirasa. Thus he is called Nila Rohita (Blue-Red). And that terrible deity, Rudra, robed in skins, looking like 10,000 Suns, and shrouded by the fire of superabundant energy, blazed up with splendour--".
