Chidren who suffer abuse and neglect are more likely to have mental illness and to be prone to strokes later in life, according to new research, this article says.
Sometimes it seems that almost every day now, more proofs of Quarry Hill's point of view about children -- that they should never be spanked, neglected, called names, and abused in any other way-- are confirmed by scientific study.
They also and find more support in the general consciousness (of those who have not been so abused and neglected themselves that they can hear nothing new or compassionate about children) and become part of social protectiveness towards the young
Irving and Barbara Fiske, in the early 1950s, were saying things no one wanted to hear then-- "Children are ambassadors from another dimension and should be given full diplomatic courtesy"--
as well as "Adults must remember that they look like insane giants to children," and much more. They would try to prevent the torment children typically went through in the Fifties, before, and after, and would threaten to call the police if they saw an adult slapping or spanking a child by the road we travelled so frequently.
These new studies bring the truth out into the light. Human beings-- why even HAVE children if you don't want to give them love and grant them full human rights-- the right to be free of fear and suffering at the hands of "insane giants?"
Please think about these things. Someone's future depends upon it-- and while it may not be your future, that person, one's child, perhaps, has the right to be cared for while young and may exact revenge when YOU are old and helpless as they are now....
If they don't have a stroke first.
