A Child Called "It" (Dave Pelzer, #1) by Dave PelzerThis book is very likely made up from start to finish. The events in it read like Pelzer imagined the worst child abuse possible and then said, And it all happened to me! Yeah, right. His brother and grandmother said in an interview that it was all rubbish, too, which casts more doubt upon the whole thing. Pelzer also bought his own book in bulk so the sales numbers would put it on the bestseller list -- he just doesnt have a whole lot of credibility. Perhaps worse than the fact that Pelzer is, shall we say, probably somewhat fluid with the truth, is the fact that hes a dreadful writer. I no longer own the book (didnt put it through a shredder, like I did with A Million Little Pieces, but I got rid of it as quickly as I could), so I cant list any examples here, but I do recall that Ive seen better writing in sixth-grade themes.
After deleting I dont know how many comments calling me names, Im adding this note, because it will save both me and a bunch of other people from wasting time: Ill delete any comments that I consider abusive or that I think constitute ad hominem arguments, so do keep that in mind if youre thinking about composing a long screed. Thanks.
Fitness Trainer Shaun T Opens Up About Sexual Abuse As A Child, His New Book & More - PeopleTV
Annie stories are special. They're not happily-ever-after fairy tales of make believe; they're stories that deal with the real-life emotions of common childhood anxieties and difficult situations. This volume considers the unique and overlapping long-term effects of all major forms of child maltreatment. The author integrates information on seven types of child abuse and neglect - ranging from sexual and physical abuse to mistreatment by alcoholic or drug-addicted parents - and outlines the complex ways in which abuse impacts on later psychosocial functioning. Briere reframes traditional notions of psychopathology and describes treatment approaches to abuse-related Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, interpersonal dysfunction, self-destructive behaviour, impaired self-reference and borderline personality disorder. Child Maltreatment, Third Edition, by Cindy Miller-Perrin and Robin Perrin, is a thoroughly updated new edition of the first textbook for undergraduate students and beginning graduate students in this field. The text is designed to provide a comprehensive introduction to child maltreatment by disseminating current knowledge about the various types of violence against children.
