They are just too busy fighting..41Reply3 years agoNo comment? Pass the wine, please.2 years agoCan't find the comment? Ask your mom.Juanita Cruz3 years agoI agree with 6 points. And I am one of these parents that are in a toxic marriage. We are getting a divorce and it has been coming. It's just hard because we have 3 kids together and one of them has down Syndrome and I know it would be better if we divorced.11ReplyPedja Jevtic3 years agoJuanita CruzGood luck with that, hope the kids will be OK.-1Reply3 years agoThe comment was deleted by a neighbor's dog.Aditya3 years agoJuanita CruzI hope your kids will feel way better with you!-1Reply3 years agoThe comment has left, but promises to come back.3 years agoOMG Karen, why have you deleted this comment?2 years agoBig Brother is watching you.Bilal3 years agoThe first point is so true.I think the biggest challenge for parents is not making the mistakes your parents made.-1Reply3 years agoThis broke our hearts, so we had to delete it.le phuong thao3 years agonice post-1Reply3 years agoThe comment is closed for renovation.Alexandra Vrabie3 years agoI come from such a family. And while it is compassion the answer to it all..the key that unshackles one, may I lovingly suggest, take the time you need. The time such pain has, swiftly, been taken from you as a child to understand, internalize and free yourself from the pain. Don’t sweep it under any rug of social acceptance or distraction. Feel and feed that abandoned inner child :) it’s never too late.-1Reply3 years agoNo comment – no problem.3 years agoThis comment space is on lease.3 years agoThis comment was eaten by a raccoon.3 years agoThis comment is hiding in a safer place.3 years agoWe took this comment away to our comment museum.Mary Sue Eicher3 years agoSo true! I came from a home where both parents were toxic and I can identify with what you are saying.--Replysantos alvarado2 years agoThis is true, I am going thru it now. Had to go see a Therapist, because my wife decided to put our daughter in the middle. I live in Germany but I am American, laws here are different especially when it comes to property, retirement and Alimony. My wife told our daughter that I am taking the house away and that they will be in the streets. My wife does not understand that there are laws here to cover a divorce. My daughter was put against me, my wife and her boyfriend tell her that I am the bad guy.. My wife told me that she never loved me and only married for our daughter, She has said that she wants me dead and that I have dead in her eyes. Doesn't talk to me at all even when it comes to our daughter.--ReplyParisa ASIM2 years agosantos alvaradoi am so sorry.i hope everything gets better--ReplySign in, to add a comment
I think the biggest challenge for parents is not making the mistakes your parents made.
