Bad Parenting + Sociopath = sad and disturbing
21 January 2019 | by zack_gideonSee all my reviews

Jeeeeeeez. How stupid can these parents be. Shocking to the core. Imagine allowing your 12 year old daughter to sleep with a 40 year old. Are people really this naive? I hope not. I feel the pain and it is conveyed well. Please parents protect your kids! There are very sick people everywhere. Don't let your guard down. God bless Jan. She's strong.
