Don't Hit Me
Don't Hit Me!! is the story of one woman's struggle to define herself, her life, her identity, her lack of childhood memories and why she feels so different from those around her until she discovers her own physical and emotional child abuse suffered at the hands of her birth family. As vividly portrayed by the dramatic cover, this book describes the effects of seeing her own mother hit repeatedly until one night the author picks up a piece of 2X4 board and attacks her dad with it. Attention is diverted from her mom to her which led to six years of physical and emotional abuse until almost all childhood memories are repressed, only to re-surface at the age of 50. This incredible journey shows us the compelling importance of raising and protecting our children and the effects of not doing so.
