Midnight Snacking Leads to Chaining

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rogers Couple Arrested for Allegedly Chaining Child to Furniture
Couple arrested after girl, 5, discovered chained to furniture

David Bridgeman, 26, and his wife Jana Bridgeman, 29, were arrested for allegedly chaining a 5-year-old girl, who is David’s daughter, to a dresser.The couple told police they would chain the girl to the dresser because she had problems sleepwalking and they couldn’t afford a baby gate. Another source states that David discovered her outside one day outside without a shirt or shoes on, but mentions nothing about sleepwalking. I wonder what the little girl had to say about that, but we’ll get there in a moment.

Authorities say that a friend who was visiting the couple’s home heard the girl crying. The friend then saw that the girl had a dog collar wrapped around the girls ankle which kept her chained to a dresser. The friend says upon discovering the girl they freed her from her chain.

Anthony Robinson, a friend of the couple, says he believes the couple thought they were helping the girl. “She’s just trying to do something different to keep the baby safe I guess,” Robinson says. “Because the baby wakes up while they’re sleeping and gets in everything and be messing with knives and stuff.  They thought they were doing a favor.” Are you fucking serious? I hope he doesn’t go on to breed because he is obviously just as clueless as his friends.

Now, remember the part about the girl having problems with sleepwalking and they couldn’t afford a baby gate?  If you called bullshit you were right on the money! The girl told police that chaining her was punishment for waking in the night and having a snack without permission. Police also said that inspection of the room where she was chained revealed a room full of dirty clothes. It also smelled with the thick stench of urine. Oh yeah, the poor little angel also barely had any room in the room to move around!

Authorities say two other girls, ages three and nine, were also in the home. All three children were removed from the home. The five-year-old girl was released into the custody of  her biological mother. The two other girls are now in the custody of Arkansas Department of Human Services.

The couple is facing charges of permitting the abuse of a minor, endangering the welfare of a minor in the first degree and false imprisonment in the first degree.  Each charge is a felony.

Jana is being held on a $50,000 bond, and David is being held on a $75,000 bond in Benton County Jail.

    Sorry for the duplication in posting. None of the newer comments were showing up for me until just now.

    This poor little girl was found DEAD this week. Her biological mother had custody and apparently she did not protect the child either. No suspect has been arrested. She was found dead in an abandoned house two houses over from her mother’s. A news story says she was staying with a ‘relative’ at the time she went missing. I wonder who that was and why ‘relative’ is in quotes. This is a TRAGEDY. There was an intervention, her father and stepmother went to prison and she still wasn’t safe. This is heartbreaking!!!!!

  • Cris

    Interesting that the people in prison from this couldn’t have killed her….Even more interesting that she was found outside and the people in jail claimed they chained her to prevent sleepwalking….

    Funny thing.  Retarded is just a bastardization of the French word “Retard” pronounced rruh-tarrrd  It literally means delayed.  I speak to my kids in French.  “Tu va etre en retard!”  Meaning “You’re gonna be delayed!/Late!”  Some people think I’m all calling my kids “Ree-Tards” where I’m just telling em straight up, they’re gonna be late.  “J’aitais retarder par la traffique” I was delayed by the traffic.  not “The traffic was absolutely retarded”  

    Just like the Racist N word for African Americans/Canadians is a bastardization of the Spanish word negro (neh-grr-oh) meaning..Black!  

    I saw two of my co-workers from El Salvador disciplined once for talking about a black car one was about to buy, in Spanish, around an African Canadian co-worker.  Luckily I understand a bit of Spanish and I explained to the supervisor that they were talking about a black car one of em was gonna go look at after work.

    *cough*  I have a chain lock on my sons door.  He’s 5, we live in a split level and he has a habit of wandering.  We see the fact that he wanders around at night as a serious problem if there were a fire, because we wouldn’t know where to find him as we left.  At least in his room,   we can grab him on the way out (it’s on the way to the door from our room)  Or he can be rescued by firefighters much quicker if he’s in his room.  (via the window)  I asked the fire chief on base about this and he was like “Whatever you have to do to keep your kid safe”  Mind you, this is only for bed time, and if he needs to use the bathroom we get up and open the door for him to go…  

    Amazing, my daughter with Autism doesn’t wander, but my NT son has this driving need to explore lol.

    Isn’t it cute how so many defenders are in social services? Liars, I imagine. Oh, and another idiot going to pray for me. How’s that prayer thing working out for you? Moron. Clutter? That room was disgusting! You are a defending piece of garbage and it’s NO suprise that you know them so well, and if you know the supposed liar who told on them for CHAINING THEIR FIVE YEAR OLD up, and they are so awful why don’t you use your social work powers to have them taken? Oh, yeah, cause you’re a pathetic liar.

    Hey christy722, if the guy had been caught before now, I promise you he would have been featured in BB.
    But, back to the original issue. I work with abuse victims every fucking day. You know what? If one of my client’s or their vag-filler (love that one) had treated their children this way, I would throw a fucking fit. If life is too hard for them and they don’t know how to ask for help or recevie help (besides foodstamps, medicaid, and free businsess-sponsered x-mases and housing) THEN STOP MAKING FUCKING BABIES! It’s this new thing called birth control. If you know them personally, why don’t you personally get her the resource to obtain this earth shattering contraceptive? Or drop off some con-dams to mr wonderful?  Especially since you work for a social service.
    Chaining = BAD.
    Do you need a degree to realize this?

    All I can say to all of those who hate people they have never met is that I will pray for you, that you NEVER make a mistake in raising your children. In the field I work in, I see many cases like this where a parent has their child stolen from them by DHS. In a more recent case there is a man who is now in prison for life because he molested more than 30 foster children he had in his home. One of the children was taken from parents who had disciplined their children with an open handed spank to the bottom, but it left a bruise. Not a close fist punch, not a paddle or belt…It was not what I consider abuse, especially once it was discovered the child had anemia and bruised easily, even from minor bumping into things. Still they took away the child and allowed him to be molested before finally returning him to his loving mother 6 months later. I have also been in homes where police have said there was filth and a “stench of urine or feces” only to find that someone miraculously broke into a house overnight and took away those smells. I’ve been told by children that their paretns didn’t feed them or didn’t even own an oven, only to find that the 10 year old child lied to me. Was chaining a child to a dresser to protect her from sleepwalking a poor choice? YES! Did the house ACTUALLY smell of urine? No! Was there clutter and was the house messy? YES! Does that make a 2 parent home where both parents are working and raising 4 kids neglectful? NO! These parents did the best they could with what they could afford, sadly that was only a 2 bedroom home at this time. The kids were and are loved and taken care of. Until you have actually experienced how the system works, maybe you should be careful not to judge. I’m done with this conversation, I felt the need to defend people that I know personally because I work with victims of abuse every single day and after speaking with family memeber’s I know this was not being used as a punishment nor was it meant to be abusive. It was simply a bad choice on how to keep their child safe from harm. I also felt the need to respond because I work with parents who have had their kids taken from them without cause because someone called DHS and lied. I’ve said what I needed to say and won’t respond to any other comments. Just a word of caution, things aren’t always what they seem. I also know the person who reported them, too bad the press hasn’t given her name because if they had, anyone could do a background check and see they don’t exactly have room to talk about parenting. Blessings to you all for a safe and happy new year!

    • http://pagansagainstchildabuse.spruz.com/ DodiaFae

      OK, wait… first of all, I thought you said they have 6 kids in a previous comment… which is it, 4 or 6? Get your story straight. My bullshit meter can’t take much more of this.

      Secondly, a spanking should never leave a bruise. Ever. I’m borderline anemic, have been going back and forth all my life, and those bumps I got… I always felt the ones that bruised, and that shit hurts. Anemia or no. The bottom is pretty fleshy, and if it’s getting bruised form a spanking, the spanking is too hard.

      I have seen how the system works via other family… the system sucks ass, but they got this one right. That it (supposedly) wasn’t used as a means of discipline doesn’t make it less abusive. Many of the abusive parents don’t do what they do to be abusive (though some do)… they’re not even thinking about it, and that’s the problem. It doesn’t make it less abusive from the perspective of the child. And abuse wasn’t their intent doesn’t make them better parents. They’re still shitty-assed parents. And you’re still a poor excuse for a human being, putting your “friends” above the well-being of the child.

      Alrighty then, well, I have worked in the justice system for close to 8 years now and I have had dealings with DFACS as well so I know for a fact that they tend to overreact BUT for the most part they don’t react often enough. I have seen a case where an autistic child was given back to his abusive mother (I saw pictures of the abuse because I typed the warrant) because they couldn’t find anyone else to take him. I have also seen them give children back to horrible parents just because they took some shabby ass parenting class and passed a few drug tests. After saying all that, I do feel like chaining a child to a dresser is abuse. I don’t care what the circumstances. Working long/early hours to take care of  a bunch of kids (which they had by choice) is no excuse. I don’t know of ANYONE who would think what they did was a good idea NOR is it something you do when you love your children.

  • Your_Pal_Nancy

    Omg I just found the skantards FB she’s pregnant again! Talk about a breeder! Oh and on there is a status about how their precious daughter has turned 5. Must be the poor kid that was chained up. Someone needs to help those poor children, since I know they’ll all end up back with her!

  • Christy722

    Just curious if any of you morons writing this column actually know this couple? I have known them for years and what they said about their child is true. She would sleepwalk. She also had a bad habit of letting herself outside at 4AM and had been seen by neighbors on more than one occasion. The parents made a mistake in the way they handled things, but they did what they hoped was best to protect her from going outside in freezing cold weather while they slept since the alarm didn’t go off until 5:30AM for them to go to work. Also, if you’re going to post, please get the facts right. The children have not been in DHS custody since 12/22/11, at which time they were released to family members. While I may disagree with what they did as parents, I know for a FACT it was not meant to be abusive and had nothing to do with their child getting something to eat. Sad that so many people are willing to jump on a couple without even knowing them or the whole story.

    • Your_Pal_Nancy

      What about the disgusting upkeep of the room? That didn’t happen overnight and it’s shitty parenting to chain your kid up anywhere, but especially in a room full of dirty clothes than reportedly smells like piss. Fuck them and fuck off nobody is interested in your bullshit.

      Wow, here we are yet again with someone playing “Captain-Save-A-Shit”! I don’t care whether the child did sleepwalk or not, only an IDIOT would chain a child to a dresser and an even bigger ASSHOLE to leave her in a filthy room. Your friends are total dumbasses and they should be chained to their cell door so they can’t reach a toilet aso they have to piss on themselves just like they did to her. Fuck you and your cunt hole friends.

      I knew a defender would come and say something sooner or later. It also doesn’t matter which one of us morons knows the couple. They abused their daughter. If the kids were released from custody on 12/22/11 to family fine, but some kind of proof of this would be nice. If I can’t find it then it doesn’t get posted unless someone can send me a link for it or something. I also don’t believe sleepwalking to be the reason for chaining her. Sorry, but I believe what the five-year-old said over what you, the breeders, or their friends and family would say. If it wasn’t meant to be abusive she wouldn’t have been chained. There are other means to use in order to keep her form escaping the house in the middle of the night. They were just too stupid to think of one, and that’s still not an excuse.

      • Jenny R.

        Ikr!?
        Children that young and younger generally possess a sort of pathological honesty, straying only over a fear of punishment or when coached. I sincerely doubt she was coached to say what she did, and I doubt the authorities were “threatening” her in any way… Even so, the hungry snack thing is so out of left field when the big talk is all about sleeping.

        I understand the frustration and fears of wandering, I do… I used to care for autistic children that would bolt out of the door like untrained puppies if they could. My 19 months old not only knows how to open doors, but how keys work with it! I have a pool in my backyard.

        It’s easy… Childproof doorknobs (those round fuckers work too good, sometimes it takes m five minutes to get out of my sisters house)… There are models for lever handles (which I have) that don’t cost much more than a few bucks.

        An xtra method of security is installing one way deadbolt locks on exterior doors–you can only remove the key when the door is locked, a great reminder not to forget…. Keep the key hidden/on your person, and it’s pretty fool proof. Even a deadbolt like that costs less than a chain and a collar.

        No one with a lick of sense is buying what they’re peddling

    • http://pagansagainstchildabuse.spruz.com/ DodiaFae

      Um… yeah, I was a midnight walker, too. But my mother never chained me to my dresser. Nor did she have me living in a urine-soaked bedroom. No fucking wonder she’d wander out. I couldn’t stay in a room that smelled of piss, either. Can you explain away that neglect? You know that is neglect, don’t you?

      The children have not been in DHS custody since 12/22/11

      But they have been in DHS custody.

      Why don’t you think real hard about what they did to that child before you come in here defending them.

        Me? I’m from Earth, are you? It’s not about beauty sleep as you call it. When you have a family of 6 usually both parents must work to pay the bills. That means that waking up at 4AM everyday just in case one of your kids wakes up before you is not an easy thing, especially when you’ve had to not sleep deeply the whole night anyway in case she sleepwalks and goes outside.

            An old friend of mine put clear packing tape around the door frame of her kids’ bedroom at night. That way the kids could get out if they needed to but she definitely heard it, even from a deep sleep. It wouldn’t occur to her (or any sane person) to chain the kids up.

            I have a disable son with down’s syndrome “retard”.  Most of these children will try to escape.  He just turned 1 and isn’t walking yet but I have already purchased the simple cheap door alarms.  People are crazy.  So are those that insult my sons disability by using it’s medical term for an insult.

          • http://badbreeders.net/ Malevolent April

            I think Down’s Syndrome it the medical term. My brother is retarded. He is not down syndrome, but has a low IQ. Down’s children are very intelligent and loving. So, really, why would you consider your child retarded? Seems to me they are two different things.

            Fairly sure “retard” is not a medical term. Would you say “this is my son Brian, he’s a retard”? You are insensitive and too sensitive at the same time..

            I’ve had a few Down’s Syndrome “kids” (young adults) as customers at a couple of jobs, and worked with a few via the mailing service we used at a non-profit… not at all what I’d consider to be “retards”. They’d be highly offended if referred to as such. They didn’t even appreciate being called “handicapped”, and much preferred, if having to be labeled at all, using the medical term (which, as has been pointed out, is Down’s Syndrome).

            I’m begging you, please don’t ever let your son hear you refer to him in such a way. Ever. Can you imagine how devastating that would be for him?

          • http://badbreeders.net/ Malevolent April

            I don’t see Down’s as a handicap. I think people with Down’s are amazing. I was an aide in an SE class while I was in school. The Down’s (young) adults were amazing to work with. I wouldn’t consider them to be retarded at all. Now, my brother, having a VERY low IQ has been labeled mildly retarded. I wouldn’t consider him one either. Me, looking for my credit card this morning while I had it in my hand…. Now THAT’S retarded.

            They’re not… some are more highly-functioning than others (meaning they are able to do more things for themselves and hold down a job), others are more child-like and can do very little for themselves… not making them “retarded” in my view, either. Developmental differences are different than blatant stupidity.

            LMAO @ you’re credit card situation… I feel the same way every time I lock my keys in the house.

            Thank you! Since getting pregnant I have been suffering from insomnia. Most nights I cannot even force myself to sleep until 4 A.M. only to rise by 6:30 or 7 A.M. via alarm clock. I get up before my kids, have a pot of coffee ready for the husband and I, and have breakfast and clothes around before anyone else gets out of bed for the day. Oh, have I mentioned yet that this is baby #4, all of my children here are going to be under 5 until March, I hold down my husband and I’s business from home (more paperwork and less hunting for me), get all of the housework done, and cook meals. If I can do all of that and put my kids first always on very little sleep then they can do it too.
            Waking up at 4 o’clock in the morning, working or not, is something you MUST do when you have a child and they might be up and wandering around the house or on their way outside.

            Totally agreed! It’s is what being a parent is about. If you can’t do it correctly then stop fucking breeding like jackrabbits. Didn’t someone say she was pregnant again? That would mean she didn’t consider herself needing sleep too bad for work if she was bringing another baby into this world because they cry constantly, she REALLY wouldn’t get sleep then. This is just a sad, pathetic story about two idiots breeding yet not taking the responsibility serious and taking proper care of their children. Money doesn’t have anything do to with it either because I know plenty of people who are poor and do all they can for their children……because I AM ONE OF THEM! Both my husband and I were laid off, me the year before last and him just a couple of months ago and it hit us HARD because we had bills that supported a lifestyle with two jobs. We are having to move to a different state just to get good jobs to better support our children. SO, after all that rambling MY POINT IS: Good parents will do absolutely ANYTHING to make their children’s lives better and that doesn’t include being SELFISH enough to chain them to a dresser so they miss out on any ZZZZ’s!

      you call the writers morons yet you disagree with what the parents did. Either you knew what they were doing or you didn’t know them as well as you thought you did, so what’s your beef? Are you even glad the little girl is safe?

    • JustMe

      Im guessing your one of those people that also thinks a “mistake” is forgetting your kid in the car for 17 hours while they roast to death! Mistake my ass my kid had night terrors after my mom passed. I put locks on the doors she couldnt reach I didnt chain her to an effin dresser while she wore a dog collar! Get over your self, stupid bitches arent allowed here! Bitches are more than welcome and youve met a few here, we however can stand stupid people who defend ignorant abusing pieces of shit parents! Get the eff off the page save your shit for someone who will listen!

      I’m a little late to this party, but still thought I would comment considering I have a sleep walking child and I know my shit when it comes to “midnight walkers.”

      1st of all, my daughter has been sleep walking almost nightly for over a year. I’ve taken her to the doc, to a sleep specialist, to a therapist. We’ve had her central nervous system checked and no one can pin down a reason she does it – she just does.  It could be b/c I was a sleepwalker and her chance of being one just b/c I was is 50%. They say she’ll grow out of it, waiting for that day.  

      She’s tried to leave the house on many occasions, so my husband installed a high up lock on our front door that she can’t reach. Problem solved. Did I ever think to chain her? Are you fucking serious?

      2nd… sleep walking happens typically in phase 2 of sleep – well before the person is in REM sleep. The 2nd phase of sleep typically happens an hour to an hour and a half from when they first fall to sleep. My daughter ALWAYS sleepwalks around 10 – 10:30pm… like clockwork.  Once the person is back in bed and back into the 3rd and 4th cycles of sleep – sleep walking does not occur.

      If this little one was sleepwalking at 4am, what the fuck time was she going to bed?  Another cause for sleepwalking is sleep deprivation, maybe if she’s going to bed at 2am at the age of 5, this was the cause? 

      Want to dispute my facts on sleepwalking – bring it. No one has studied this shit or talked to more doctors than me. 

      Here’s a thought — a bedroom (whether it be a child’s or not) should be a sanctuary.  A place where peaceful sleep can be maintained b/c its their own and calm and soothing. Maybe she couldn’t sleep b/c she was living in complete squalor and her lazy fucktard parents couldn’t take a few hours to clean it up? Who in the motherfuck lets their child sleep in a bedroom that looks like THAT? That’s no room for a 5 year old! Its a pile of shit, a heap that looks like the episode of Hoarders I saw on A&E the other night. 

      Your friends are pigs and bad parents. They’re disgusting and negligent and THANK God the little girl was removed for her safety. Any dimwit with half a brain would be able to buy a chain lock from Home Depot for $2.50 and install it so their child couldn’t leave the house. 

      And as their friend, if you want to their house and saw that filth — shame on you for not offering them a hand if they were so overwhelmed. When my best friend had her 4th baby, it was me who was bringing her other kids nice dinners b/c her husband worked nights. It was me who went over for a few hours on Saturday to help her tidy up bc she was exhausted with a newborn and 3 other kids under the age of 5.  Some fucking friend you are. But wait, you’re the kind of friend who sticks up for bad parenting… so I guess that makes you a great friend to them. 

      Go screw, asshole.

        I doubt very much the child was sleepwalking in the first place; that sounds like a desperate excuse invented by these mouth breathing psychos.  What the child actually did “wrong”, apparently, was eat some food that Petunia up there had been planning to cram down her maw.

        In any event, they need their ugly faces bashed in with a two by four for chaining a young child in her own piss.  Either they’re too stupid to live, or too evil.

    Chain them to the beds in their cells and feed them a crust of bread a day.  If they want water, let them drink from the toilets.

      My in-laws were coming out a few months ago from overseas and have a strong aversion to hotels. Last time the old MIL was a passive aggressive twat about the hotel stay so we got a King sized platform bed off free-cycle. I’m about to try and find some shelves for my girl’s room because my mom keeps buying her books and bringing my old childhood books over. No place for them.

      That’s what I’m sayin’. Seriously. I’ve given away tons of baby stuff and a giant TV on that site. It’s freakin’ awesome. And safer than Craigslist.

        Yup usually u dont even have to see the people they put the item on the steps or curb

    This isn’t an incident that happened over night, look at the room. So question is where was the biological mother during all of this?

      Oh but of course b/c she is a bad breeder doing what she does. grrrr

  • KathyK

    Eeeww!  I watched the video in the link that Suzee posted, and it shows the filthy room the girl was chained up in.  There is dirty clothes, boxes and stuff everywhere.  You can almost smell it through your computer.  What pigs.

    • Suzee

      I didn’t watch the video at first because I was afraid of what I might see. I just watched it and that room makes my skin crawl. I can only imagine how she must have felt living in filth on top of her being chained to a dresser because she got hungry in the middle of the night and ate something. I bet she was hungry because she wasn’t being fed properly. I will not be surprised if we see additional charges added to what is already there because an expert will say she’s malnourished. 

      • KathyK

        And Anthony (who you wrote about sticking up for these scumbags) said later in the video that he wouldn’t let anyone do that to his kids.  Yet, he stuck up for them.  That makes no sense to me.  I guess because it wasn’t his child he was okay with it.  At least their other friend had the sense to do something about it.

      I just looked at it. Where the girl was chained? Was that supposed to be her room? There were A LOT of giant fast food soft drink cups. Hope the 5 year old wasn’t drinking biggie sized Cokes every day. Why wouldn’t you just throw them in the trash right away? So weird.

      • KathyK

        I lost count of all the cups in there!  If the child drank those super-size drinks and was chained, no wonder it smelled like urine.  She would have had to pee herself.  Poor girl. 

      • Jenny R.

        Ditto!! If she were, that makes her story even worse…
        That much soda would cause leeching of minerals out of the bones to process it
        Would make her gi system abnormally acidic (tooth decay, ulcers, etc.)
        And if they were sugared drinks, shed be at high risk for diabetic ketoacidosis
        I speak as a soda addict. This shit wrecks you in high volume :(
        And if she’s starving, all that is gonna develop ASAP

    Wait a minute… they couldn’t afford to buy a baby gate, but they could afford the chain?  For real?  You can get baby gates for free on freecycle.org, and on the cheap at many thrift stores, or even at swap meets.  

  • Crystal

    I am so SICK of these “parents” denying their children a meal. Sick Pigs. Hope you both rot in prison on PB’Js and a pint of milk. Fuck them all. Sick assholes.

  • Your_Pal_Nancy

    Baby gates cost 10 dollars at wal mart, I’m willing to bet they’re less at the good will…I too am sick of seeing fat faced bitches who claim children are stealing their food!

    • Anonymous

      I was like “wtf?” on the baby gate claim as well. It is very possible the locking dog collar cost way more. Actually it is very likely it costs more than a baby gate. And the girl is FIVE. What use would the gate be anyway? My daughter started standing on those things when she was a little over 2.

      Also I’m obese, but I’m not an evil bastard. Baby girl gets her food first. And the piss smelling room? I’m as lazy as they come but when my daughter has an accident guess what I do? Some fucking laundry.

      Chaining up your own child – I’d say like a dog but I think its cruel even to them. My dog had free reign of the house. Chain up these a-holes and feed them nothing but slim fast and rice cakes until skinny jeans are baggy. I know from experience that diet isn’t a friend to the gastrointestinal system, so that’s a bonus.

      • http://pagansagainstchildabuse.spruz.com/ DodiaFae

        Yeah, our baby gate is nothing more than a suggestion to our 2 year old at this point, and our 4 year old climbs over it like it’s not even there. A five year old should be able to leave her room if she has to in the middle of the night. What if she’s got to pee? My older son will get up if he has to in the middle of the night. He still wakes me up, because he doesn’t like being up by himself, but the gate on the door is more for his brother than for him.

  • Mare

    Marsha – I agree that the – I hesitate to call them “people” who accuse these poor children of stealing food are usually no slouches in the appetite dept themselves! Look at that beast with the little piggy eyes! I am no skinny minnie, but I FEED my children when they want food – and if they want seconds, there are no seconds for Mom!!! Hoarding pigs, pigs, pigs – they belong in a trough, eating their own waste.

  • Marsha

    What IS it with these abusive parents and their weird obsessions with the children getting food when they are hungry?   I haven’t seen an interview with the father or stepmother but I would bet they will talk about the child ‘stealing’ food as so many of them do.   It’s simply not possible to steal food in your own home.  It’s there to eat.   It’s a basic.  None of these abusive parents ever look like THEY are doing without! 

    No one in my family ever denied any one, child or guest, any food ever.  The most my mother might say is “Hold off on the snacking, dinner will be ready in ten minutes.”
