On a fundamental level, for instance, with an income at or below the federal poverty level, it is very difficult to provide for one's basic needs. Under such circumstances, choices in housing and the quality and quantity of food available as well as access to health care are all severely circumscribed. Uninhabitable living conditions, perpetual hunger, and sporadic access to health care can result in poor physical and emotional health, which in turn can inhibit cognitive development and one's readiness to learn. As also noted in Chapter 3, one in five children comes to school living in such circumstances.
‘How different then is that gentle, tentative sexuality… ‘
Quite simply put, one sort of love – a parent’s teaches self-reliance, self-esteem and pride-in-effort; The other side seeks a sexual gratification for the adult member of the partnership (Bullshit in this case) for a usually non-permanent and roaming interest that cares nothing for the wellbeing of the ‘target’ as long as the perpetrator (of eh CRIME) gets their way – gets their rocks off.
Do not try and romanticise that rock spiders are people. They are sick, twisted individuals who need psychological help to straighten themselves out. Not that that will happen – the first thing they have to do is admit they are at FAULT!
