Because I live Close

by Beverly
(Versailles, Il)

Mentally abusive elderly father who never learned to live in 20th century where woman work outside the home. My mother worked outside and still gardens and canned every summer in a house with no air conditioning.


My father spent most of his time in a coffee shop until about May and then decided it was time to start farming until about October. Now we are stuck taking care of him. He is belligerent ungrateful and everything is our fault.

All articles on elder abuse? What about the "elder" who mentally abuses their children???
