Mother thought I'd hurt myself

Just because it’s a violent life.

I had a big problem with my mom for most of my life. I realized that I was destined for bad times no matter what happened. I believe it’s a little better than they would have been.

Your job as a parent is to expect that small children can be hurt and take appropriate safeguards. You dial it back as kids age and expose them to increasing amounts of risk so they learn to handle their own problems and to recognize trouble by themselves.

This is normal.
