I am Annabelle Anderson, born and raised in an abusive home. Through the course of growing I have been depressed and repressed my feelings. I have been suicidal as I watched my parents abuse me emotionally. Good things still come from bad places. Now I write and advise parents on how to really be parents. Using the lessons from my home, I have done the exact opposite of what my parents did with me and I have a home filled with love to show for it. My articles are focused on parenting and how to reach out to those we call our children.
