A Child

I think I can say this now without all the vitriol I was feeling.

*A child is not a doll.
*Just because a medical form lacks the choice you want, doesn't mean the doctor can't help.
*A child is not a Cabbage Patch Doll.
*An adult keeping "score" with a child is immature.
*A child is not a Build-A-Bear Doll.
*An adult who requires a child make them feel better is emotionally abusive.
*A child is not a mail-order doll.
*An adult who expects a child to fill their needs is abusive.
*A child is not a store-bought doll.
*An adult who focuses on the negative and disregards the positive in their child is abusive.
*A child is not a doll.
*An adult who sees their child as a doll in any way needs to grow up and stop acting like a spoiled brat that didn't get their way.
*A child is a human being.
*An adult who abuses a child, in any way, will pay the piper, someday.
           Not a threat; an observation.
*A child is not a blob to be molded as an adult sees fit.
*A child is unique and precious.
*An adult blessed with a child needs to be grateful they were given such a precious gift because there are plenty of people out there who want such a gift but are denied for reasons beyond their power.
*A child is a gift.

From me:  AMEN!!!!
