A young mother makes bad decisions that affect the welfare of her children. They are too young to understand why mommy behaves the way that she does. All they know is that nothing in their life is constant except disappointment. The parents do not feel remorse until their way of life is compromised. These conversations are all that the children have to keep the connection with their mother at the top of their little minds. It is like she toss them away, never to be seen by them again. You feel their anger, pain, and disbelief that this is what their life has become. Will they forgive her transgressions? Can they love her unconditionally again? Join me to find out.

I wish I could wrap my head around why women find themselves in relationships that are destructive in nature. When a child can tell you that this is bad and they are still learning, then it must be. Is it acceptance that these women desire? Growing up, I was taught self-worth from my parents. I think that young women and older women who wind up in these life-changing relationships were not taught how to love themselves and this leaves them subject to confusing attention for love and devotion. They still miss the point that their children suffer for it.
Communications Through a Fence
This does not dull Krissy’s devotion to her boyfriend. If nothing else, it makes the connection to him stronger. The whole bad boy attraction grows even when she knows it shows her in a bad light. It jeopardizes the safety and security of her children. She does not see it. Her little boy sees how corrupt this boyfriend can be. This is no example for a toddler. The little boy laments to his grandmother about the cruel punishment that the boyfriend unleashes on his mother. He cries because there is not much that he can do to keep her out of harm’s way.
