Spoiled Children of Divorce


Home Alone with Mommy’s BF

Here’s a link to an article written by David Crary called “Abuse Risk Seen Worse as Families Change:” http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20071117/ap_on_re_us/child_abuse.

The article says that a 1996 study found that child abuse rises something like 70 percent in single parent homes due mostly to the fact that Mommy’s Boyfriends don’t connect with the kids and can’t handle them. The problem is raised based on a San Jose case where Mommy, who claimed to also be abused by her BF, colluded in hiding the fact that said BF killed her kid. She helped the guy drive out to Arizona and bury the boy and then kept it secret for months. The Boy’s Father kept trying to see his son so eventually the Mom confessed. For some reason unknown to me the journalists always slant the reporting in favor of the Mother. People are not ready to recognize that many Women simply don’t enjoy being parents, aren’t any good at it. Single parenting is almost always too difficult. Society needs to change somehow to get these people extra support without invading their rights or privacy. It’s anybody’s guess how that can come about.

Still unmentioned are the sociopathic manipulations that Step-Mothers pull on their kids. Cinderella and Snow White aren’t just Fairytales. There is no way in Hell that a silly, ignorant Social Worker will be able to break through those walls, or even see it for that matter.  And even further the effects of how awkward it is for a Child to have to feel at home with strangers and to have to bounce from one household to the other, even when the parents are behaving well.

Here is a quoted list of summaries of studies listed in the article that have studied child abuse in single family homes:

“However, there are many other studies that, taken together, reinforce the concerns. Among the findings:

_Children living in households with unrelated adults are nearly 50 times as likely to die of inflicted injuries as children living with two biological parents, according to a study of Missouri abuse reports published in the journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics in 2005.

_Children living in stepfamilies or with single parents are at higher risk of physical or sexual assault than children living with two biological or adoptive parents, according to several studies co-authored by David Finkelhor, director of the University of New Hampshire’s Crimes Against Children Research Center.

_Girls whose parents divorce are at significantly higher risk of sexual assault, whether they live with their mother or their father, according to research by Robin Wilson, a family law professor at Washington and Lee University.”
