It seems to me the article was accurate!!!! If I may point out to everyone, it does begin by stating that most who read this educational article will not gain a better knowledge or understanding of why people choose to abuse others. In my opinion most everyones comments gave truth to that assumption. It is to my knowledge and belief through personal experience as well as education that people who abuse, choose to abuse by a sense relative to instinct. There are factors which guide instinct. Such as stomaches growl to spark the instinct in us to eat. Well on the same note, there are factors which guide people into becoming abusive towards others. Most subconsciously abuse others as a result of suffering from their own childhood trauma effects of either witnessing abuse or being abused themselves. Some can be due to mental illnesses or lack of utilizing the skill of open-mindedness, which is also categorized as a learned behavior, even a few reasons would be undeterminable(scary!). In my opinion, being able to understand the factors which cause abusive behavoir patterns is what's key to diminishing abuse. I feel it's important to understand that the ones who are enlightened with the opportunity to examine themselves and judge themselves in the same way they judge others yet choose to ignore it, choose to deny it, or choose to ridicule it are the ones to worry about. They are the ones who are at risk for putting public safety in jeopardy over and over again displaying no regard for the destructive damage they've done or will do to people or environments(neighborhoods). On the other hand, the ones who aknowledge their pasts, their actions, their reactions, who educate themselves, and who do not make excuses will prevail.... Success is in anyones grasp, you just have to reach out and pull it in.... no matter what mistakes you have made in the past.... It's difficult, but the rewards are great.... It's a matter of who wants positive "giving back" success, along with who wants it enough to work hard in the most self fullfilling and positive ways. That seems to work 4 me and my Family. Reality is a reflection on actual occurances, go figure , everyone's experiences are different and unique.... so what's reality to me, can't be a reality to you.... right?!.... IN MY WORLD " FAMILY" MEANS NO ONE GETS LEFT BEHIND!!!! what does it mean in yours???? Depends on your experience i guess, huh???? Made you think :)
Rachel I know just what you mean in getting the proper diagnose! I was told the same, boys will be boys, he'll out grow it, let him pay the consequences for not having his homework done! I never gave up.
He's had severe anger outbursts, ALWAYS had homework issues from first grade. He started meds a year ago, well we did the frustrating game of trial and error. He's now on Celexa and Risperdyl. I want to get him OFF Risperdyl because of the side effects it carries!
He's been diagnosed with being defiant, and touches highly in the spectrum of autism.
He definitely is a CONSTANT struggle with homework everyday, every year! He's is 6th grade, gets great grades, but recently some of his grades have fallen. Due to not turning in all of his homework, I didn't know this was happening.
I am at wits end with this struggle! Feel free to email me at
