Howie Defranco Talks Child Abuse

Hey blog readers, it’s Howie Defranco and today’s topic is child abuse, and hey this is like my third blog on abuse. So hopefully you know my stance already, that I think abuse is equivalent of torture and that people who do it need to reevaluate their value of life. So having said that lets start talking about child abuse, mental, physical, and sexual it’s the trifecta of abuse because it comes in all forms. Which makes it very disturbing as look just read that sentence again and think we do this to children…. TO CHILDREN. That right there is the worst most heinous thing I can think about a society where people can get away with abusing their children.
Let’s be clear about that though, there are laws in place, the abusers can go to jail, their children (if it’s there’s) sent to a foster home. A foster home where it is entirely possible the whole thing could happen again and the cycle begins again, destroying the child’s psyche, self esteem and view of the world. Better yet that child some how could grow up thinking it was all their fault that their abusers had a right to do it and they should be ashamed of it. Even then they could be the kid that grows up with it then when they have kids, they think it’s ok to act like their parents did and become abuser’s themselves. It’s honestly a vicious cycle that in a perfect world would be more than outlawed but alas this is what we live in.
To bring this to a point though and not just me ranting, if your a kid reading this, or anyone still living at home stop right now and think about the fact you can try to stand up. Try being the word, if you don’t think you can tell someone you trust, someone who can for you, who can protect you. For the good adults reading this, look out for the young people in your life, nurture them, protect them, show them there are good, strong, kind people in this world. For this world is filled with them but sadly the few people who aren’t go to far and wreck others lives.

One thought on “Howie Defranco Talks Child Abuse

    To further this much needed topic if the author doesn’t mind my thoughts as well. If you are a child who has read this…you may have already tried. You may have reached out to deaf ears or to those who wish to silence you. People go to great lengths to cover up abuse and will undoubtedly support the abuser in the cover up if that means they don’t have to face it. There may be no one who believed you. You may feel trapped and hopeless with no strength to fight as the abuser has taken the fight from you.
    Don’t lose hope. There will be someone out there who will listen. There is someone who will save you. Even if you tried and the first few didn’t. It is not as simple as people may think. But there is a person that will rescue you if you don’t lose hope and don’t give up. And if no one will listen, I will.
    If you are an adult who has read this… Look for that child who has lost their voice and desperately needs you to be their savior. Go against the grain and speak out even if it is against a well known well loved person who is deep down a secret monster that only the child has seen. Child abusers are often the good looking outspoken extrovert who everyone loves. They are not at all what you imagine.
