I think if your son is smart, and he is good age, it may not be bad to say that you were hurt when younger, and you are work at it, and you will do all you can to protect him of it. Then he will of course ask questions, and you choose what to answer. He is at good smart age I think, to know that even parents have past and childhood things. I will be curious of what you do, and how it goes.

Thanks again for all the kind words. You have been just fantastic!

You know Joe I think it was more than a father son disucssion. It was more like a peer to peer conversation.

You are right on the money. That's how it felt. I can see the man forming in the boy before my eyes. It's awesome.

Joe this is an important part in breaking the abuse cycle and breaking the silence!

Breaking the cycle and the silence. Two things that need to be broken. It felt good, because I believe I have done my son a service. Maybe the effects will reach beyond his life, too.

Happy 2nd birthday!!!

Second birthday?! Will I have to age faster, or do I have to start to mature now? \:D With all that's been going on this week, especially the last couple days, it feels like a new birthday or something.

I will be curious of what you do, and how it goes.

I did talk to my son. I did not tell him specific details. He asked only how old I was, and how old the man was. You can see what I wrote earlier if you scroll back up this page.

Thanks again, to all of you.
