If you have been to For The Love of Baby! on a regular basis or talk to me on Twitter, I am sure you know I am studying Criminology at Iowa State University.
Many people hear Criminology or Criminal Justice, they instantly think Police Officer. There is so much more to it than that. And it is sad to say, but there will ALWAYS be crime in the world.
Today, I have heard of another child’s death at the hands of another as well as a teen assaulted. Sometimes I question myself…Am I cut out for this? Can I handle it? You look at these horrific crimes in a whole new light when you are a parent. Don’t get me wrong…I love what I am learning and have a strong passion for helping those impacted but I just wonder if I have what it takes.
These individuals have been through a horrible experience and it’s vital to help them know someone is there to help them and bring the assailant to justice. I just feel myself looking at it all completely different than when I was not a Mother.
