For Newcomers, Welcome! Read the Mission Statement:
To present hopeful educational information that heightens awareness about, bullies, bullying, and child abuse. It helps uncover that bullies, whether they are cyber bullies or aggressive bullies that utilize face-to-face contact, are often created in home settings. Cyberbullying is often first practiced on siblings. Siblings are now being publicly humiliated, rejected, or hated.
Because of our present economy that provides conditions where children are not supervised or parented, the basic goal is to impart prevention information that keeps us safe from the aggressions of children/adolescents and those who are yet unborn.
It is a beacon of light to all adult survivors, over 80 million, who are recovering from sibling abuse in their childhoods. Many adults recovering from sibling abuse can have: distrust, difficulty in relationships/domestic violence involvement, addictions, eating disorders, PTSD, anxiety, depression, anxiety, self-injury, thoughts of suicide, and poor parenting patterns.

Stat/Thought For Today: Throughout history, society ignored violent acts between siblings and often excused them as normal behavior. Violent acts among siblings is 8OO per 1000.
Bully-Proof Thought o not overload an older child with adult tasks of babysitting, etc. Aggression often comes back to the younger child.
Thought For Adult Survivors:
“Lay down the boogie and play that funky music til ya die…..”
Ask yourself how intense and chaotic has sibling abuse in childhood, done to your adulthood? Many sibling adult survivors, because of the abuse from a trusted sibling(s), have destructive lives of chaos. We move alot, have problematic-negative relationships, use drugs or alcohol, are depressed, and sometimes have suicidal ideation. The reason for this is that our beginning brain became a trauma brain. The first circuits that were being formed in our brain knew trauma. The imprint is often a deep one. The cognitions that go with us into our teen, adult, and often senior years is that we do not deserve to enjoy life and are not worthy of happiness.
Much love to you today.
Statement From An Anonymous Survivor: My brother told me that I would be O.K. if I jumped off the roof. I wasn’t. My arm was broken. In the emergency room, I had a cast put on. The authorities or child protective services was not called. The abuse was from a family member and it was alright to receive it. I learned that I was worthless and suffer from low self esteem and addictions in my adult life.
Commentary: It is the adult sibling abuse survivors who will impact and change the lives of little children who are now “getting it” from a sibling(s). The appeal has been put out there to adult survivors to “come out from wherever you are” and help this great cause. You are needed. Your voices and your comments are needed for a new movement. This movement needs to launch and I needs your help. There are well over 80 million adult survivors in America alone who are in stages of recovery from being violated and abused by their sibling(s). This abuse can come from a cousin or a step-sibling. My prayer is for you at whatever hour this comes to you.
