Thanks for your post, skitoolong. I meant the first paragraph for you, but not the other stuff. This is what happens when you post early morning while getting ready for work! No time to make Coherent paragraphs! Sorry!
A child of 8 is very impressionable. What must she think of her father? Do you think she's thinking, "Will Dad beat on me that way if I displease him when I'm older?" (that is, if he isn't already).
I remember watching a drunk uncle get into a fight when I was younger than that. It started in the house with yelling, and I just happened to be in his way. He pushed me through the screen door (literally......I tore the screen right the hell out and went Through it), and he went outside where it took 3 other uncles to hold him down so he couldn't hurt himself or anyone else.
I still have dreams about it.
This Dad wasn't even drunk. I hope the girl gets some kind of therapy, or someone talks to her about his horrid behavior.
PS. Huckers, yer still a candyass.
