Sticks and Stones (Paperback)
"Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me."
This rhyme is meant to be empowering. If only it were true.
Many people who are victims of emotional abuse live in homes or environments where they become so accustomed to the situation, they consider it normal. The victims do not even recognize it as a verbal or psychological assault, because there is no physical injury; instead, there is an ongoing emotional barrage which is just as damaging, if not more so. Sticks and Stones is a story of faith in God and commitment to integrity, values, and morals in the face of devastating abuse.
