What is it with parents from the generation spanning 1928 to 1950? Ugly, abusive behind closed doors and Susie sunshine to the outer world. Have always been told "I wish I'd never seen your goddamn face" and many other obnoxious spewed words. Every aspect of my life has been torn apart by this monster. Know many people brought up by same era parents who have been destroyed by these elder idiots who knew nothing about decency, let alone parenting. Some physical abuse as well, but nothing like what Dave Pelzer went through ("A Child Called It")...his mother came from same generation. Was it because there was no birth control or abortions to correct lustful incidents....so take it out on the result? Trying to live my life free of this negative, putrid person. Geographic distance now helping. Tired of the societal-induced "obligation" to care for someone always chomping at my behind. This same society is the same that sees these people as good as they play their grand facade to those whose opinions they cherish over their own blood. WTH was wrong with this generation to desire to mow down their own? Was it the psycho generation? Thoughts please. Thank you.
