I had a very happy childhood . Also this topic makes me mention a point here. If a person doesnt have a happy childhoold , he is prone not to be mentally fit even if he grows, he may turn out to be a saddist or a person who truns happy by giving pain to others

I don't know. I don't have anything other than anecdotal evidence, but my mother was abused, but made the decision to be a better parent to her own kids. I know other parents who have done the same.

Not really. I had what is known nowadays as a dysfunctional family. It wasn't totally bleak - I do have some happy memories of staying with my grandparents - but as soon as I reached 16 I severed all ties with my immediate family and have never regretted it.

I'm sorry it wasn't very good. I'm glad you were able to move on.

Most of the time my parents were fighting. I have very few good memories from my child hood. I remember 1 christmas when everyone was happy, and 1 of my birthday parties when every one was having fun and I started to have a tantrum, and then there was the time my father took me sledding and we hit a rock and landed face first in the sonw and when we got up we both had snow beards. The hardest thing was when my parentd divorced, but the divorce worked out to be the best thing that has happened for me.

All in all I would have to say my childhood was a happy one. I did have a father that was a alcolholic but it didn't define my whole childhood.
