oh wow totally agree. when my siblings and i were little kids and our mum was being badly beaten in front of us we would plot & plan to kill our father so our mother would not be hurt anymore. but every plot & plan we came up with would (in our child minds)we had to throw out the window every time because we thought that our mum would get the blame. we of course would never have killed anyone - not even an ant but in a childs mind all we knew was that we were all in danger & that danger had to be stopped.
