India: Children and their Mothers

The Mad Momma writes a wonderful post on coping with her own actions and loving her child. “I slapped my son an hour ago. Not once. But six times in a white hot rage. This after being brought up by parents who even 25 years ago knew that you don't hit a child. A toddler. I have no excuse. A few reasons maybe, but nothing to excuse my behaviour.”
