What the hell is it that's wrong with many young parents today.
Fathers shooting their kids in the head. More than six percent of all children in West Virginia (and more than that nationally) living in grandparent-headed homes, a phenomenon that saw a thirty percent increase between 1990 and 2000. Children being treated as accessories that can just be abandoned, or even thrown away.
I'm a pessimist, and always have been . I tend to expect the worst out of people. Many, many times I'm wrong. But I don't think I'm wrong regarding my belief that there's something unusually selfish about many parents these days. A selfishness that ultimately causes the devaluing and dehumanizing of their own children.
Am I wrong? Please, someone tell me I'm wrong.
