http://www.local6.com/news/14463787/detail.html Another sad sad hard to understand story of abuse. This poor child was 12 years old and abused very badly. I can only imagine how long the abuse went on. And God darn it why didn't the boys father do anything to stop her from hurting the boy? I will keep this boy in my prayers.

The mom in this case belongs in a mental institution. That's just totally bizarre. What is really sad is the boy will never be able to handle life in a normal fashion. Those kinds of abused kids usually repeat the abuse later on in life. How sad. Maybe by some grace of G-d, he will not repeat the lifestyle in the manner his mother raised him. The father is a slug!

Another parent headed to the mental ward. As for the father, he must be some wimp or something not to stop his wife from beating his son. I would of beat her up for doing that. When I see someone being abused, I just flip out and start beating the abuser up. Just ask my bro when I lit into him for hitting his wife on Christmas day when she didn't want to go interupting friends with their families.

Hi Lifez2short! That is a cruel and insane mother. Just wish mothers and fathers who are like this will never have children in the first place. I just hope the boy will recover from this psychologically and physically. I will also include him in my prayers plus all those countless children who are still being abused. Take care and more blessings to you dear friend.

I wish there was a way to know when "parents" were going to suck at being parents.

It just sickens me! She should have to endure the same punishment she gave him. She should be chained up and beaten with whatever we could find. Sorry but no child deserves that! The fact that the dad just sat there and let it happen is discusting! Hes just as guilty as her! I hope this boy gets help and realizes its not his fault. I hope he can go on and live a somewhat normal life after this. I will keep him in my prayers.
