While difficult to listen to, the words of this 8-year-old are very important to hear. Alcohol combined with abuse is a horrible thing and the consequences are devastating.
Yes, very horrible, but very important to see how things start out and escalate to the point of no return. At first it was verbal abuse only, but then that transitioned into physical abuse. The bottle becomes the motivation while the family becomes the burden. Combine that with the unpredictable and volatile behavior that alcohol is known for creating, and you have a situation that no child should be exposed to, let alone affected by in such devastating fashion.
