A sad story
15 September 2002 | by (Oroville,CA) – See all my reviews

This is a sad story about a boy who is a bed wetter and whose mother likes to humiliate him in public. She would hang his sheets out to dry so his friends will see them. The mother should be locked up for child abuse and have the key thrown away.
