Re: [Slovak-World] Harsh treatment of children
- I suffered not only "assholism" (as I personally like to refer to the disorder) but physical and mental abuse at home -- and yes, ALL from my mother -- dad's fault was his inability to stop the cycle and quit his enabling. Took lots of counseling to realize I'm not the only one. At least with knowledge, we've got the ability (will we use it?) to stop.
