I remember getting a beating because the cat came to me when I called it instead of my father when he called her 2 minutes later. My older brothers got much worse for much less, it all increased in severity right up until my mother could not explain away the bruises on herself or my siblings and finally had to admit that he'd kill one of us before stopping unless something was done.

I'll never forget his pathetic rage when the cops dragged him away from my home, he went from bully and oppressor to angry worthless twerp who'd only ever win a fight unless he picked his opponents. About 5 years ago he attempted to recognize with us, I'm twice his weight and more than 6 inches taller now, I scratched something off my bucket list that day.

This.... this actually explains a lot about why you are the way you are. I still think you're a faggot, but at least I understand you better.

Hey, man. You know the story about the "cycle of abuse"? It's bullshit. You seem aware. You know what's good and what is bad. You don't need to worry (more than anyone else -- perhaps less). I know it's pre-emptive, but... people can be dumb and it can wear on you.

Violence against children fucking makes me rage. Too often there are no witnesses, and when there are they sometimes ignore it. Good on you for trying to help this poor soul.

Parenting works vastly better as a couple, for several reasons. Sharing the workload, different strengths, better financial stability, etc.

The child was face down on the floor, wasn't crying or anything, just laying there.

As in potentially hit on the head so hard as to have altered consciousness? I would have called for police and medical rescue.

Or maybe the kid wasn't hurt at all.

Smoking marijuana has different effects on different people. I've known one guy who became extremely agitated and violent. Also, spending money on it can add to financial difficulties, especially for a single mom, which causes stress and can lead to short tempered action. Bud may not be crack, but it certainly isn't harmless. If you're stoned, you cannot take care of your 4 year old better than you could sober, and ulyour 4 year old should not be breathing that crap. Speaking from more experience than most have had.

I'm am sure the weed will calm her down and settle her nerves. Saying someone is going to become violent after smoking weed is wrong. That is not the effect. Don't judge someone until you have walked a mile in their shoes

Why do you fucking retards refuse to believe that marijuana may occasionally have negative effects?

Inb4 "yeah but it's better than alcohol" as if that's the point anyone is trying to make

I watched a guy get violent and agitated on multiple occasions. Normally he was the calmest guy I knew. Saying you can predict how a drug will affect someone is naieve and idiotic. It is well known that any drug can have varying affects. Pot heads not recognizing this and claiming marijuana is 100% safe and harmless just sound like morons. People who behave like this are dead wrong and clueless.

I can understand being concerned but I can also understand a good asswhoopin. Maybe it's just me but involving the state seems a bit drastic unless it was a real walloping. What does it matter if she smokes weed? If I didn't smoke I would probably beat myself to death...

You handled it well, and to the extent society would expect.
