    Child said to his mommy "Mommy, I colored your sheets with lipstick" In anger she started to hit her child until he was unconcious. then she regretted what she had done, and crying said to her child " Please open your eyes" But it was too late, his tiny heart had stopped beating. When she walked into the bedroom the sheet said "I Love You Mommy"

      This made me feel sad and that would be wrong to beat a child. This is bringing tears to my eyes. It makes to cringe to think of stuff like that and that is a sad ending.

      My first thoughts..hmmm [that's what you asked for right, lol. With all these lengthy responses I think you got more than your bargained for, lol!]

      Initial thought: Damn, that is so effed up! What a sorry mother.
      Second thought: I hope she dies of a painful death!

    Angry! A woman like that should not be a mother. I honestly wish there was some kind of a qualification required before anybody may practice his/her right to parent a child.

      Cagsilposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      Really? Talk about confining to people's life. Yes, it would be a horrible tragedy if the above actually happened, but allowing other people the power to dictate child birth(who is allowed to have kids and who isn't) is absurd.

      Yes, stupid people shouldn't breed. But, it would be better to educate those same stupid people, don't you think? hmm

        Cagsil, I agree. Education would make all the difference to a situation like this. Particularly education in the field of humanities, ie: literature and art, because those help teach empathy. Nobody is born bad, we are governed by opportunity.

      I agree with you. I for one am appalled on how stupid some parents are in this case this mother. They are good people out there that are dying to parent a child but can't and yet idiots like this woman gets the gift of life and then destroys it for a loving reason like that. I actually am very angry at the mother..

    I have to agree with Cagsil on this one.  Watch the Casey Anthony case, I don't but there are some parallels.

    Cagsil, please read my comment again: "...I honestly wish there was some kind of a qualification required before anybody may practice his/her right to parent a child..." According to my knowledge one receives some kind of qualification as a result of some kind of education..... smile

      I read your comment and understood what you were saying, however, I don't think YOU understood what you were saying or implying.
      And, WHO do you think would SET THE qualification? Your statement implies that someone else is to do the thinking for someone else. That's absurd.

        Um.....we have tests to determine who's allowed to drive...so why shouldn't we have one for child rearing? I find it way more important and a lot more damaging if you fail. Just saying.

    Things like this happen many times around the world and we get caught up in our emotions and allow them to drive us to do harmful things. I read this on a facebook post and it broke my heart to read it. I felt it was necessary to share with hubpages and get reactions of others against child abuse. Thanks for the comments and responses.

    I am speaking in general I am no one to judge the actions of others and can only speak for myself. There should be qualifictaions enforced to be  a parent but unfortunately thats not how it works. As a parent I would never allow anger to drive me and hurt my child no matter how angry he or she would make me but that is me! I am sorry if you are offended with what and how I feel I may have worded it wrong and typed ahead of my self without proof reading my comment....

    1. Cagsil profile image61
      Cagsilposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      Again....Qualifications? Who dictates? What are the qualifications? How would those qualifications be implemented? When would someone qualify?

      Breeding is a natural part of life. The only thing that can be done is to hold the individual responsible for their actions, AFTER the fact. To dictate before is absurd, not cost effective and over steps other people's authority, and infringes upon the rights of the individual.

      I hope I have made myself clear. I am an advocate for citizens rights.


      Edit: I am not offended.

    Anyone psycho enough to beat a kid to death is hardly going to learn a lesson in remorse.

    Cagsil, I find what you say logical and realistic. There are no qualifications or handbooks to describe how to be a parent and I absolutely agree that it is a nurturing process. smile

      shampa sadhyaposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      I believe becoming a mother is very easy but to be motherly in nurturing a child is a daunting task. Very few mothers pass this hurdle with flying colours. Some manage it with little loopholes but few fail miserably.
      The quoted incident is an example of mothers failing miserably. Such incidents are not very uncommon. They do happen here and there after which I feel it leaves the concerned mother in distress and repentance. This suffering for the rest of the life is the most appropriate punishment a mother gets who lacks motherly approach towards the mother-child relationship. Thus, think twice before you act and especially when an innocent life is attached to it.

      Eaglekiwiposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      It does raise a very important question though.

      What would you do if child abuse was happenng next door, in the supermarket ,in fact anywhere?

      Sadly many people dont wish to be involved ,but are also saddened when the inevitable happens.

      I, personally like the concept of it takes a whole village to raise a child..is how I was raised and I turned out great lol

    saddlerider1posted 5 years ago

    Yes it is very sad bellawriter. To often people who are on the edge get pressed to do harmful acts to their children and regret it and unfortunately it is often to late. The the authorities take over and that person will pay for their actions taken in anger/depression/brutality. Very sad indeed, very sad. Both the parent and the child are victims only the child lost their young life.

  13. MartieCoetser profile image87
    MartieCoetserposted 5 years ago

    You are right, Cagsil, any kind of authority will entail corruption. And yes, Bella, parenthood is a nurturing process. It is only so sad that the innocent has to be the guinea-pigs who may or may not survive their parent’s inabilities. I guess this is what life is all about. The weak will get weaker and the strong, stronger.

      Disturbiaposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      You're so right Daisy, that's exactly what I thought.  My first reaction was... lady get a grip, it's just lipstick.  For somebody to get that angry over such a trival thing, well that person needs some serious therapy.  What's the point of this story anyway? 

      Also, Cags, parenting and pre-adoption classes are offered by various social service agencies as well as Catholic Charaties.  I have to agree with MartieCoetser insofar as, prehaps before one becomes a parent, some education and counseling should be required as people often have unrealistic expectations.

      1. Cagsil profile image61
        Cagsilposted 5 years ago in reply to this

        Hey Disturbia, are you going to FORCE people to take those classes, before they decide to breed? And, who exactly is going to enforce it?

        It would just be another unenforceable law, which eats up further resources, which are already not available now as it is. hmm

    By posting the same comment twice, I’ve proved that I am after almost a year on this site not active in the Forums. Guess I need more energy to resist the temptation! There is no solution for any problem is this world. There is always pros and cons.

    Greek One – having sex is one thing, begetting children, another and parenting children, another.... We’ll chase this topic like a dog his own tail.

    That quote has been all over Facebook for a couple of years now.  It is as poignant then as it is now; however, I don't know if it fits into the "original hub" post restrictions with the Hub Pages.
