[ who know my wife and we are very demanding We have very high ex- for our three children, 13,10, and 2. We expect children to stay out of Our children know if get into trouble they will to answer to us. We expect children to make good in school. We expect our to go to college. We ex- our children to help out the house. Out two old- children help cook and clean house, do their own laundry, a list of chores to do Saturday before they can and do what they want to for the two-year-old, she up her toys and knows to clean up after herself 1 she spills something. children's friends think Wife and I are mean, I've them say they were glad Wife and I weren't their par- My inother and my wite's often say we are too hard children. (Grandparents think their children do a ~nough job raising their Grandparents to forget how they raised own children and fuss ~tl their children use the child rearing tactics they I'm sure my wife and I will same way when our chil- have children.) However, like the way my wife I raise them. They have all ~aterial things they want, know they can come to us they have a problem. So Our children have turned out the children we have al- wanted. Of course, in the we live in that could all next week. tell you this for a reason. We good children. They have and they have a future. My and I don't worry as much about the prob- young people in our and, most important, we ~t our children. Also, not lid my wife and I have to abuse to get the kind we wanted. nly line of work, there isn't too much I haven't read about the problem of child abuse in our society. Still, it mnazes me how many parents feel they have to beat the daylights out of their children, or lilerally torture their children-all in the name of mak- ing their children behave. It fur- ther amazes ine when parents treat their children worse than they treat the family dog and then complain about their child being a problem when the child either rejects lhem as parents, is constantly in trouble at school, or with the pc)lice, runs away, or lurils tO drugs or alcohol or sui- cide in an attempt to make sense out of their lives. Child abuse is the deliberate abuse of a child. No parent or authority figure has the right to abuse a child; child meaning anyone under the age of 18. With all the available help our there for child abusers, self-help groups, parenting groups, and counseling at the mental health centers, there is no excuse for someone who is a child abuser not to get help. Nor is there any excuse for the people in Green- brier County to get upset when a football coach calls the wrong play during the game, when Johnny has to ride an extra 15 minutes on the school bus to get to school because of school con- solidation, and when children Trick of Treat 15 minutes past the curfew. I wish these same people would get equally as up- set when a child who lives next door to them is a victim of child abuse. What's more important? We say we want to end the problem of child abuse. In real- ity we don't enough to stop it. Many times we allow child abus- ers to justil~r their abuse Instead of helping them or in some cases requiring them to get help they need. These people must realize you don't have to abuse a child in order to get him who's the boss of the house is. Unless we begin to view child abuse with the same importance as an East or West football game it will con- tinue to happen. Until next week.
