When we lived in Marblehead Massachusetts, the child psychologist gave my brother Zachary an assignment to write things down when he was upset. Here is a journal entry I found from Zachary.
“I hate my dad and my mom kind of doesn’t believe me. She gets mad at me if I say HATE. She makes me say STRONGLY DISLIKE but I really do hate him! I hope he has a nervous break down and I hope Mark divorces Rena right when she’s in labor because I don’t want them to have a baby because I don’t want them to be (mean) to the baby. It makes me sad because my mom is afraid that Mark is going to take us away from her. I hope everything gets back to normal.” Zachary ~ 9 years old
