Mothers Child abuse

Chilling case of child abuse in news yesterday with headline "Manslaughter for mom who shopped for CDs as scalded baby lay dying from burns"   And the father tried to inquire about the child but was putoff or down by Mom - AND HE BUCKLED.

I find this quite interesting as one of Lionel Tigers pieces recently was how men are today so highly conditioned to think less of their parenting skills - and often allow themsleves to browbeaten as "inferior" to mom's "superior, innate knowledge" - when it is just rubbish.   If keep at it, sometimes they learn to trust themselves more and begin to understand the ruse.  But, some don't.

As this child was so young, the Dad believed the stereotypical rubbish our media constantly feeds us - so he buckled and lost.   Very sad.
