Timothy Bennett · Oakland Community College (Official) reply to Avery, “Yea I read it…. You are advocating that we understand their pain, give them a pat on tge back that everything is going to be okay.”
Hello, Timothy. I am advocating we understand, through no fault of their own, multiple generations of peaceful, loving human beings, no different than you or I, throughout their entire lives, from sunrise to sunset, from dusk to dawn, experienced unjust oppression and atrocities I have no doubt twisted their human minds in a thousand different ways.
Timothy, I am advocating my responsible, caring, loving American neighbors recognize each of us is an individual uniquely reacting, responding and recovering from trauma we personally experienced or witnessed others experience. Sadly, we all know people whose minds were mildly or profoundly impacted by a tragic human event.
Timothy, I’m advocating a theory that significant numbers of American children need protection from a population of depressed, mostly single moms apparently experiencing some type of emotional or mental illness preventing them from experiencing and embracing their innate, natural maternal instinct to place the well-being of their children Above All Else.
Timothy, if you read my writing you’d learn I am advocating placing cameras in the common area of homes of caregivers establishing a track record for neglecting or maltreating their children, aka our nation’s most valuable, precious, and cherished assets.
I also believe crafting laws mandating court-ordered birth control for moms requiring public assistance to raise their first child will allow an immature or emotionally ill mother time mature into her role as a maternal caregiver, experiencing the 24/7/365 challenges of parenting while acquiring practical skills so they can build a family of children who will not experience the shame, embarrassment and/or resentment from being supported by demeaning government handouts that makes some or many kids feel unequal to other American kids.
Timothy, I am also advocating that every once in awhile we should consider setting aside our anger, frustration, disappointment, biases and prejudices, taking a few moments to critically evaluate social topics that often stir the emotions of significant numbers of people.
Doctors Ross and Dietz offer insights into how our Early Childhood Development plays a key role in determining the type of individual we mature into.
Robert K. Ross, MD, President and CEO of The California Endowment, addressed inmates at Ironwood State Prison offering a compelling overview of the role that exposure to Childhood Trauma plays in the lives of Emotionally Troubled and chronically ill American teens and adults.
At 2:12:25 in this documentary about Mafia hit-man and victim of Early Childhood Trauma/Abuse, Richard “The Iceman” Kuklinski, Dr. Park Dietz explains why young Richard most likely developed into a emotionally disturbed, paranoid, cruel, heartless teen and man who did not give a frig about anyone else, including his wife and kids.
