She was the love child of two kids eighteen years old each, Babies themselves having a baby. Neither of them had a clue as to what they were doing, bringing a child into these mean streets. consequences are a fact of life, you don’t go having Babies, with no game plan, leaving them to map their own course as juveniles. When the girl conceived, her mother told her that the boy was below her, she forbid the marriage. Instead of allowing the young lovers to live their lives, she uprooted the young family by moving the girl and her unborn child to another State. It is good for parents to intercede in kids life in a positive way, not destructively . Unfortunately too many parents don’t give their children a chance to build a positive image, instead they browbeat and dominates the child’s life.
The child is born out of wedlock and with one parent. It is bad enough when men makes Babies and abandon them, but to deny a child the warm feeling and security of a dad , is a tragedy in it’s self. All this destruction in the name of living your child’s life. How selfish living two lives when you are given only one. If I am not mistaken her daughter grew up without a Dad, the cycle continued. children suffer too, mood swings, hyperactivity, lack of interest, call it what you want I call it the broken home fall out. This child’s development was hampered by Grand Ma. The little time she spent with her Dad, she grew to love him, all the time wondering why he had to live seventeen hundred miles away, and was not there for her when she needed him. He never told her why things were the way they were, instead he bore the brunt, visited whenever possible, shouldered the reputation bestowed on him.
The young Mother did her best juggling being a single parent and enjoying her young life. All the while trying to fill the void of her first love, its like chasing the first high, never to be duplicated. All this time the child’s development suffers. People do not realize that kids are just little people with the same emotions adults encounter, such as guilt repressions. Sometimes they think that their family circle is broken because of them and the reason the parents are apart is because of them. In steps low self esteem, once this occurs things like bad behavior and rebellion, followed by bad company and drug use. Now you have a maladjusted juvenile and Hells gate is an inviting place. At this point intervention is just about a lost cause. The twig is bent, only the force of life can turn this Ship around. Fifteen years old having sex using drugs, having no respect for the ones who put her here. Hate and resentment could grow out of proportion. The School don’t want her there , she is now on the radar of the local law enforcement and the Court system. Her Mother has washed her hand of her and her bad behavior. Her Dad has a new family of respectable children all three of them, there is no room for her disruptive behavior, and will not take her in to contaminate the good ones. There are only two places to go Juvenile detention or Dad’s parents to a City I grew up to know as a bad mans land in a county where bad ass children ruled. She was now out of the frying pan and now was in the fire of the Big Apple, with that note I will say a little Prayer for her and Grand’s.
