wake up

Im not a perfect parent.
I do not claim to be, however i am aware of my actions and the impact they have on my children.
Thats why im revisiting this topic.

Between the years of 1999 and 2003
9% of childrens deaths thats a staggering 128 children died from assaults.
Of those 128 children who died at the hands of someone the loved and trusted 65% of those were under the age of 5 years old.*

 I have hit my children in the past, I will not again

What are we doing to our children?

Go here and ban the smack

  1. Wow, I had no idea you'd experienced it first hand, as a parent. It is amazing to see the way we evolve as mothers, as we build ourselves villages of support.
    Thank you for speaking out!

  2. Yep, i was "one of them"
    Am i proud? no!
    Can I change? YES!
    The cycle stops with me.

    P.S it was years ago but.... not excusable
