We did our best to explain to him that none of this is his fault. Some of his friends’ parents’ have gotten divorced so he had an idea of what was going on. Kids know too much these days, I suppose. We knew he wouldn’t take it very well, but something just isn’t right. It cannot be normal for a son to fear his own dad this much? It cannot be normal for a boy’s eyes to go wild and well with tears whenever he sees him coming. It cannot be normal for a small boy to shake with fear and tremble like a leaf whenever we ask him what’s wrong. A mother just knows, and I need my son to tell me what’s wrong. His father insists he doesn’t know what’s going on, so we must send our little boy to a professional so that we can know how to help him. We cannot afford this urgent special care our son needs, could you help us? We need R3000 for his assessment and treatment as soon as possible.
