Oh. I feel badly for her. Sad to say, this is a common occurrence.
The physical abuse is for dramatic effect, but the scenario is inevitable.
A very common occurrence. My dad wouldn't have backhanded me, but I knew better than to touch his papers! He was one of those bark is worse than his bite people, but I didn't want to get barked at either!
As I said before, dramatic effect. But the power/emotional struggle remains, even when you just bark.Thanks so much for visiting, Dolly!
You have an acute sense of irony... poor kid
Ha! But you know that already. Kid getting trained for the world out there...Thanks, Sam!
Well done. I can picture the little girl and angry father.
Thank you very much, Ann!
Poor little girl! She'll be doomed to spend the rest of her life chasing the dream of fatherly acceptance. It's a credit to your writing that this piece breaks my heart:)
Well, though, aren't we all thus doomed?Thank you for considering it a credit to break your heart. hahaSeriously, thank you, Valerie!
Man, didn't expect the harsh ending. Overkill indeed. Poor little thing. Well-written, as always, Kymm!
Sorry... but I did say overkill... haha Thank you so much, Suzanne!
Ouch! That kind of a scar runs deep and almost never fully heals. Very unexpected!
Unexpected, like the reaction. Thanks, Tina!
Horrid man!Poor little girl,waiting for applause & getting hit instead!Great piece of writing with an unexpectedly unpleasant twist at the end:-)
Glad it got to you. Thanks, Atreyee!
Oh Damn, Kymm!
Ah Hell, Ted!(Thanks for stopping in.)
D: awww, she was only trying to help!
Tell that to the father. But, yeah. Thanks, Draug.
Poor kid. It serves adults well to think as a child and discern motive before doling out punishment. A child's idea of 'help' is often different from ours, but their heart is in the right place.
And some adults never mature enough to see that. Thanks, Janna!
Oh wow! I even flinched.
Sorry! I like reactions, though. Thanks, Tara!
Some children crave for the simple things in life and are constantly disappointed.A great story.
Well, don't we all, really. Thank you, Mike!
Ouch, I flinched. I agree--definitely overkill. For that, I would shove all of those nice piles I made to the floor!Thanks for linking up!
Sorry for the flinching, but thanks for the visit!
Thanks (I think), Meredith!
I wanted to thank you for commenting on my entry, Kymm. It's been a long time since I was in Grammar School, and I really was not sure about this. I have corrected, as I hate to be wrong and look the fool. Besos...
I'm glad it was taken in the spirit it was offered. I'd like to be remembered as helpful, not anally critical. ¡Un abrazo!
Ouch, that hurt. I liked the use of off-limits in relation to the desk. (This unprovoked attack has left me unsettled - well done!)
Sorry for the hurt, but I do like reactions. Thank you so much, Sarah!
Adults, unfortunately, do not think as often as they should. Children, seldom, do things to really aggravate. They are prompted, most often, by a sense of need of praise.I missed the linking limit on the post.Mine is at https://kindredspirit23.wordpress.comScott
Adults, yeah. Can't live with 'em, can't reproduce without 'em.Thanks for the visit and the link, Scott.
