Too Many Parents Intentionally Create Fundamental Failure For Their Children

Fundamental Failure
Having your physical, mental, and emotional needs
in a particular situation neglected or denied,
setting you up to fail despite your own efforts

When parents do not want their children, they neglect and deny their children’s basic survival needs. In the United States, so many parents do not want their children that children are dying every single day because their parents kill them. Compared to child deaths at the hands of parents in the rest of the world, in 1998 the United States ranked:

11th for infants under 1 year old

1st for children 1 through 4 years old

4th for children over 5 years old

But the number of deaths by parents is probably low.

“Many researchers and practitioners believe that child fatalities due
to abuse and neglect are still underreported. One report on national
child abuse and neglect deaths in the United States estimates that
approximately 50 percent of deaths reported as “unintentional injury
deaths” are reclassified after further investigation by medical and
forensic experts as deaths due to maltreatment (Every Child Matters
Education Fund, 2012)”

For every child who dies at the hands of their parents, other children survive. We don’t know how many children survive the murder attempts. It is likely higher than the number of children who die.

Every day, parents set the children they do not want up to fail at living. Children who manage to survive can experience failure as adults because their parents neglected and denied their needs. I have first hand experience with the failure survivors experience, because I survived my mother’s two attempts to kill me.

A web host transfer made some posts disappear. Luckily, I copied each post and emailed it to myself. Since I alternated success and failure posts, I will have to remove posts and republish them in success and failure order. I will do this as I have time. Apologies.
