  • Hmm… the state of Texas may not deem it abuse.
    I DO  think he went too far. 
    But obviously most of you guys DO NOT KNOW the law.Damn near all adults across racial lines in Texas disciplined their kids in a way, which other states would be considered abusive.   Just telling you my perspective, but hey, you  can believe what you want.

  • Adrian Peterson says he was hit like this when he was a child, shame on his parents for doing that and thinking its ok Adrian Peterson should go to jail along with his parents and his selfish wife who allowed it to happen and still with him because of the money

  • I have ZERO TOLERANCE for Parents hitting Children. First of all PARENTS their NOT your Children. They belong to God. You don’t own them. I don’t apologise for getting in an Adults face about it when I see it.

  • This right here, the way his mother was, shows how dangerous and conniving and the manipulative bitches some women can be. They can literally end and ruin someones life just because they want to… And are a woman.

  • the  problem with the Adrian Peterson is that what he  did was inexcusable to many people who believe there absolutely no!!!! justification for whipping a 4yr old child with a stick,,and then blame it on,his upbringing with all the money he making,,doesnt common sense tell you,,that how you was discipline was wrong,,i don’t feel sorry for child abusers,i feel sorry for his 4yr old son.and he should be in jail and suspended for the whole football season,,somebody need to be made a example for abusing babies,and a jail cell should have his name on it,,,HEARTLESS MONSTER

  • Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.Proverbs:22:15
    Hakuna siku corner itasaidia kutoa kiburi na ujinga kwa mtoto.
    Otherwise reason for discipline needs to communicated to the disciplinee.

  • Every referral I see shows that the family was investigated 8+ times before the child was eventually removed. By then, the child is destroyed.

  • The number of children who died from maltreatment is growing from year to year in our country. We should consider the fact that the majority of suffering kids don’t tell anyone about what happens.

  • I understand from personal experience what he means by « only seeing life in shades of grey. » That’s what I lived too. What an enormous challenge it is not to fall into hopelessness when nothing in life seems to have value. Having learned briefly that love existed even if I didn’t, couldn’t and would not get it in fact is the thing that saved me too in the past…

  • You’re so brave for telling your story. Thank you for being so courageous Luke! Your accomplishments are impressive. Thank you for speaking up and standing up for all abused and neglected children and youth.

  • Beyond the pain of lifes sufferance, endurance and lifes violences. There is a light, a glimmer of warmth, a honesty of Will. For every dark pain, violation upon my soul, there is light. The endless motion of pulling away from the abyss has become exhausting. Torments, violations are countless, beyond these I can now thankfully breathe life’s pureities and step away from the mental cycle that I created. I given forgiveness to all that added to my sufferance’s. The mirror has finally turn outwards, how amazing this feels. Reach deep, Reach for this moment, it’s there for all.

  • I’ll never forget the trauma my Tia put me and my cousin through. Now him and I are grown and have a inseparable relationship.
    My tis continues to make life hard but it is what it is.

  • The social worker set of standard questions to determine if there is child abuse do not compute in children’s brains. Yes, listening after gaining an open minded and compassionate setting would help the child to express what is. Play therapy with family dolls is extremely helpful.
