When I was six I went through the most traumatizing experience any six year old can go through. It was 2002 during Christmas break and one morning I woke up so early that I was the only one awake in the house except my older sister who was in charge of my siblings and I while my parents were out working. I was so hungry and wanted to have breakfast but I couldn’t do it for myself because my mom always told me not to use the kitchen owing to the fact that she was afraid that I might cause a fire because of my young age.
I went to my older sister who had the privilege of using the kitchen to ask for her help but she told, me that it was to early to prepare anything and It would be better if I waited till my other siblings to wake up so that she can make breakfast for all of us. What she said was reasonable but being the arrogant t little kid I was, I refused and demanded that she would start cooking something. My sister ignored me and went to the bathroom and locked the door. Our bathroom door was made of thick glass. It was so thick that you couldn’t see through it. I followed my sister and as soon as she locked the door I started banging on the door so hard to get her out so that she can start breakfast for the royal prince (Me).
My sister Ignored me and the more she did the harder I banged on the door until the bang that broke the whole door and made a huge cut in my hand.

My mom came in 5 minutes picked me up, took a look at my hand then started crying which made me scared. When we arrived to the ho...

- One of the most traumatizing events in my life was my father’s death. For years, I believed my reckless ways as a teenager was the reason for his shortened time with me.

At this particular time, I was involved with selling drugs, an endeavor at which I was actually unsuccessful. I did not know people who would buy drugs or even use them; I just thought, in my adolescent mind, that it would be an excellent way to make some money....

- Educational Experience. My path to McGill University took a slight detour in the beginning; I started with a Bachelor degree in Political Science at Ryerson University. My advisor and one of my professors commended my success in the program and shared his observations on my liberal and social justice perspectives and suggested that I explore direct social work (this is also when I learnt the difference between direct and in-direct social work).

- I recoiled as the pungent odor of human suffering and affliction pervaded my nostrils. All around me; human skeletons staring at me as if I was from Mars. I was a lion among by hungry hyenas. Little children shod in makeshift clothes made from rags stopped what they were doing to gape. They looked so fragile, so frail, as if they would fall and break into a million pieces at the slightest touch. Trying to ignore their outstretched arms, I continued in stupefaction down the cracked concrete road.... [tags: personal narrative]

- “Growing up in a violent home is one of the most terrifying and traumatic experiences a child can go through.” Violence in homes can be domestic abuse between parents, extended family and children.

On the other hand, once violence in the family has occurred and the police were notified, the situation tends to get worse between each family member, especially children. The current methods of dealing with violence in homes those children are exposed to whether they are between spouses, families or, children and parents, do more harm than good....
