I lived with my gran who hated me, she was the most selfish person ive ever met.During the 60s and 70s things were different in England too, people minded their own business more then, and saw things thats they dismissed as not their problem.When my gran died, there were crocodile tears from others, but i was glad shed finally set me free.I can understand when the Mrs Pelzers family didnt cry at her funeral.Sometimes its better that a person dies,to let others live.

Tell your children that they have a way cool artist for a dad.

This man is a fake, and a dangerous one, at that. If you read any of his books, you would see the glaring inconsistencies. He talks about how abused he was, but anyone who grew up with him remembers him as a FAT TATTLETALE! Why has he faded into obscurity? He has been chased away. The world knows that he is a liar. A simple public records search will tell you everything that you need to know about him.

D. & R. Pelzers' books are a revelation as to what can happen when alcohol is consumed relentlessly by parents. Several years ago, I was a member of a child abuse council and at recognition banquet, alcohol was served as a "fund raiser"... When I voiced a very quiet concern, I was summarily shouted down with the director's words:"It isn't the alcohol that causes child abuse. It is people who are the abusers". Drugs and alcohol are some of the root causes of many abuses and I have held this belief
as a parent,teacher, community member.

I've read Dave's book, A Child Called It and I've used his book for an inspiration in one of my essays. I'm also working on another report and using his book again because I think it is such a wonderful story and so amazing how he lived through his horrific journey!

I myself had spoken to richard on what
Waldn books was doing to hide his teen book from mr, so if you wanna talk to
Richard, do so at 8:45am....arizona time. his voice sounded like he had just awakened. Don't give up. If ANYONE badmouths Richard and I see it posted anywhere, I'll viciously defend him...he's a sweet man.

I have read all of David's books and only need to read A Teenager's Journey, which I will begin tomorrow. My soul has been affected by these stories and I feel depressed inside and hurtful that two boys had to endure what they had to. I wish it would have been different for both of you. I was wondering what became of Ross, Scott and Keith. I rec'd a autographed picture of David with a nice message. I had it framed and hangs in my living room wall. You, David and Richard are the true hero's of this earth. You made it, you succeeded and you broke the chain.
