Sibling Abuse - An Epidemic by @PatriciaSinglet

This is reblogged from my good friend Patricia Singleton who has her amazing blog, Spiritual Journey Of A Lightworker HERE.




Sibling Abuse - An Epidemic

Hi, everyone. So sorry that I haven't been around lately. I am doing my best to finish up my husband Daniel's book editing so that it can be self-published by AuthorHouse Publishers. I did not know the book would take up so much of my time but I am the one of the two of us with the computer skills, as basic as they are. Last week, we decided to give up on converting the book from 8 1/4 inches by 11 inches to 6 inches by 9 inches. There were just too many problems created by changing the size and going from Microsoft Works to Microsoft Word. For the past week, we basically went back to the beginning with corrections and there were a lot of them. I hope to finish by the end of this week but that will depend upon whether I can figure out how to do the charts at the end of the book and the weather on Tuesday.

On Sunday and again today, Oklahoma has had severe storms, some resulting in tornadoes. My prayers are going out to everyone involved in those storms. Tomorrow - Tuesday, its Arkansas' turn to get possibly severe storms. That is why I am taking the time to write this today, in case my computer is unplugged because of storms tomorrow. Wherever you are, if you are in the path of these storms, stay safe. I am going to.

I wanted to let you know that three of my friends will be on the radio Wednesday evening on Butterfly Dreams Abuse Recovery on Blog Talk Radio. Wednesday night's shows are called Survivors World. The hosts are Patricia McKnight and Michal Madison. The Wednesday evening show starts at 8:00 p.m. CST in the U. S. If you miss the live show, you can still hear the talk from the archives of the shows at the link you will find below.

This week's guest is Nancy Kilgore, another friend of mine that I introduced you to a few years ago when she and I did a review of her book Girl in the Water. I will leave a link to that blog post at the end of this article, in case you missed it. Nancy is a sibling abuse and domestic violence survivor. She is an advocate for the silent survivors of sibling abuse. Sibling abuse is at epidemic rates around the world but nobody talks about it. To quote Nancy, "Each year, 19 million children are abused in their homes by their own sibling." That figure is just in the U. S.  You can find Nancy Kilgore, MS on Twitter under the name @SIBLINGSCANHURT. Her Twitter page says, "Nancy emerged from a horrific childhood of sibling abuse to become a survivor and voice of hope. Her website is:

On Wednesday, you will find Nancy, Patricia and Michal talking at the following link:

The show isn't listed there yet but it will be. In the meantime, you can listen to any of the other shows from the archives. Last week's guest was Ms. Lynn Tolson.  When you have the time to listen to the archives, you will find valuable information about a lot of different topics of interest to survivors.
