So here's this weeks question: What were/are your parents like?
My mother was a jewel and my father was a tyrant. She stayed with him because she didn't have an education and was afraid to be out on her own with three kids. We would have been better off away from him. I was a punching bag for him until I left home at 16 years of age. I was always close with my mom, but pretty strained with my father for many years. To say I had an unhappy childhood is an understatement.
