“A child who is not embraced by the village will burn it down to feel its warmth.” What examples do you have of this that you have seen?

  1. Gang members in the USA. There was something i read once about the psychology of a child being told he is no good or a criminal and the chances of following that path becoming higher

  2. Being apart of a certain group I’m in, I often see children disconnected with their family/parents. This is when a lot of teens build a resentment for them as they don’t know how to love and hate their family for not teaching them what it is. This causes them to act out and misbehave for their attention. There’s just a constant struggle between the two, eventually making the individual “the problem child” and ruin the family.

    It’s just something I’ve seen a lot of growing up, people causing conflict and division in their family because they never got the proper love and care they were supposed to get

  3. My older brother. He got every form of abuse from starvation to beatings to sensory deprivation and rape. First went to prison at 18 for possession with intent to distribute of an ounce of weed in Idaho. Developed the same or similar mental issues as our mom, diagnosed schizophrenic and a bunch of other labels. His biological father was convicted of murder.

    He never really had a chance. He’s attacked a lot of people over the years. He’s not a good person though he was a pretty great kid. I wouldn’t be surprised to discover he’s killed or raped. I know he’s beaten a lot of innocent people in the course of robberies. He’s pretty much all anger.
