UNICEF nails Child Abusers

"It's almost a caricature that children are the ones that decide what happens within the family," says Mr Vangeert. "Their wishes become so strong that parents have to work very hard to give them what they want. Sometimes, there can be a lack of balance between the happiness of the child and that of the parent."

now, if the unicef researchers had interviewed me in my hormone soaked, pot-smoking, surly teenage years, i could have told them some horror stories about my upbringing as well.

most of it total melodramatic, self-involved teenage horseshit, but hey... you want science, go talk to stephen hawking.
