    @darkcleavage:" just stop fighting, cuz your kids are getting scarred. thats why this generations so jacked up" no kids now days are jacked up cause parents are lazy ass motherfuckers who don't discipline their children, kids now days need a good ass whoopin just like we did growin up.

    songs so sad but incredibly true. children go through so much and everyones like dont worry they dont understand or wont remember but i remember every time my dad yelled at my mom, every time my dad got in fist fights with my brothers, and everytime i cried myself to sleep hoping that it would be better in the morning. like hell children arnt affected! why ccant adults just forget about being right or being on top in a marrige and just stop fighting, cuz your kids are getting scarred. thats why this generations so jacked up. just let it go.

    Thank you kathylynch18!!! Eveyone always says ,"Oh, they don't understand. Their just a kid." BULLSHIT!! They know and hear a LOT more than what people give them credit for. How the hell do people seem to forget bein kids themselves? Damn infuriating...
