    A petri dish and a test tube would make better parents than these two. Pathetic. No trouble with Evan – trouble FOR Evan.

  • EMH

    These parents are horrifically emotionally abusive to this poor kid.

    The trouble with having parents less intelligent than the child — is a more suitable title.
    Anyone who has suffered similar parenting, should seek therapy and perhaps look into “Stefan Molyneux” on youtube.

    I really hope he was removed from their care after this! It’s disgusting.

    these parents should be brought in to a field and shot

    This was exactly how my childhood was. I now have severe depression, BPD and slip into despondent states. I have tried to kill myself several times. I am incredibly unhappy. FUCK THOSE PARENTS. AN ELEVEN YEAR OLD CAN NOT BE LOCKED OUT A HOUSE OR NOT FEED. THAT IS CHILD ABUSE, FUCKING CREEPS. Treat an eleven year old like a child, not an emotional punching bag.

    Take this child and his sister into care. Charge these parents! This mother has no excuse for not protecting her children. For shame.
