Fifteen Questions

1. When each child was born, did you gaze down upon their newborn faces and wonder with awe, “How much child support can I cash you in for someday?”

2. When did each child stop being a person to you? Was it all at once, or one at a time?

3. What goes through your head when you deliver a bold-faced lie to your own child?

4. Are you proud when you coerce one of the kids to lie for you?

5. How do you keep track of all your lies? Do you have to keep a notebook, or does lying simply come naturally to you?

6. Do you ever stop, in a rare moment of clarity, to inspect the wounds you have inflicted on the kids?

7. What makes it worth it to you when the kids cry because of something you have done?

8. Will you ever not be so jealous of me that you stalk me and talk about me incessantly?

9. Why do you bother starting copycat blogs if you can’t write well enough to draw an audience?

10. Why have children if you have no ability or desire to take care of them?

11. Are you aware of your psychological instability?

12. When you plop your butt in church and pretend to be a pious Christian, do you ever pray to be a better parent?

13. Have you ever taken responsibility for something you have done, or is it always, conveniently, someone else’s fault?

14. Why don’t you want to be a better person?

15. And again…when did you stop loving the kids? Or did you ever start?

    I just want to say that you have a great writing style. I have not read many of your posts but have read one post called “Blog Stalking”. It is on the top 5 in google search. That's one of the best blog posts that I have ever read. Will check this blog when I get some time!

  2. #1 and #7 really hit home for me. I have no respect whatsoever for a mother who only sees her kids as meal tickets and/or possessions, and will intentionally inflict emotional distress upon them just to get the reaction she wants. It's disgusting.

  3. Doesn't this stuff suck!?

    I'm sorry you and the kids and your partner have to wade through these rivers of mean.

    It's such a bind, working out whether and how much to respond the other parent's lies and misrepresentations.

    Hang in there.

  4. Some of those really hit home and touch on what we deal with in our stepfamily life as well. Our BM uses the son as a cash cow. I just asked my husband yesterday if he thought she ever saw her behavior or stopped to think how she was hurting the son?
    So sad, the kids don't deserve it and it will never end. Those people do not change because they never see that they are the problem. Sorry you are having to go through this as well.

    I would love honest answers to all of these questions. How anyone, particularly a parent, can deliberately hurt children just to pad their own hateful egos is beyond my comprehension.

    I received an email from a person who wanted to post a comment anonymously. My blog does not accept anonymous comments, so I am posting the comment for this person (comment below):

    Re number 5, you only need to worry about keeping the lies you have told
    straight if you care about being consistent. And you only care about being
    consistent if you care about consequences.

    If you are lucky enough (as my fiance's former wife is) to not care about
    being accountable or assuming the consequences for what you say or do, then
    you have no need to keep the lies you tell straight. If someone ever dares
    to mention that what you just said is inconsistent with what you once said
    earlier on the same subject, you simply: (1) yell at him; (2) blame him;
    (3) tell him he is wrong; (4) tell him you changed your mind; (5) lie again;
    or (6) all of the above.

Don't be shy! Tell me how great I am. Or not. Share your feelings with the group.
