“Watch out the place you go, and who you enable shut.”
“Keep in mind that the particular person you torment might simply change into your tormentor.”
“All the time remember the fact that not all the pieces is because it appears.”

A mom on the finish of her rope punishes her baby earlier than studying the true motive for his actions.
