I was always taught that you had to love the kid God gave you. It didn't matter whether they were disabled, or gay, or whatever they were. You still had to love them regardless. I mean, of course, there are exceptions I honestly am going to have a really hard time still loving my child if they turn out to be a rapist or murderer. But overall that used to be the rule. Lately though you read about parents murdering their children because he or she was disabled, was not heterosexual, with defying gender norms, or because they just wanted to get rid of them. Think of Susan Smith. What's your take on this?

Unfortunally this does happen very often and i think it is the worst thing a parent could ever do. I do agree with you about having a hard time loving a child that has become a rapist or a murderer but still deep down for sure you know that you son isnt like that and you still keep a bit of love saved deep down in your heart. Now those parents that neglect their children for being just different is completly awful. I mean people bring a child into the world, they need to show love to their children but when they show how they really are, in this case those whom are homosexuals, it is disrespecting your child's wishes. Being disabled is something that happens, that doesnt change the fact that they are your blood, you should show love, support them and continue with your life. These things happen. What i hate the most is those that dont support their children because of their sexuality choices. Parents should be happy that they know what they are, what they want and that by showing this, they can be happy one day.

These are not True parents, they are people with kids. They have the kids but they don't put them first Nor see them as their own people so they think they can dictate what the kid will be . And when they don't turn out to be Just the way they Want them to be , they kill them, or abuse them. It's simple. As for Susan smith , She just didn't want to be a mother anymore, period. Wouldn't it be great if there were good orphanages where a parent could just take the kids and drop them off? But no, not here. Everyone assumes that once you have the child you will take care of it And love it. Wrong! Many just can't and that's when the children should be taken out of the house. You can't make a person love anyone they don't and that goes for children too!

People should be respected as they are. And when they are your kids, that respect for what they are goes along with love. I am sure that many of the rapists and murderers did not have loving families to beging with. How do you stop loving your child?

I'd loved my child and I care. Yet this child is your blood, it is part of yourself. can not move on because when this chost of us is gone we can not live fully. I personally would not have done so because it's part of my life from my dreams. Have a nice day!
