Boy becomes daddy. He hits boy. Boy becomes daddy. He hits boy.

In the whole world, domestic violence is a generational problem. Almost 85% of all abused, become abusers. A few ( 15% ) do resort to Motivational training, they do listen to motivational speakers, they do refer to inspirational quotes and self-help books. They do put sincere efforts to go beyond the wounds of the past but sometimes the scars are too deep to heal ordinarily. An alarming 85% DO NOT HEAL. It’s worse than an epidemic.

I am asking myself this question. What would the story of my son and me and his son and him and his son and so on….

My dearest friends, if you don’t mind, for the above numbers 9 and 10, do think about two possible situations from your life. Irrespective of what is the reality today, ensure, the future is brilliant and strongly positive.

Let’s not just leave something right FOR the children. Let’s leave something right IN the children.

With love, prayers and exceptional wishes,
