David's mother becomes an alcoholic and starts to punish and abuse David for no reason. The first type of punishment included David getting put in the corner and being called a bad boy. After that David’s mother started to treat David like her servant. If he did something other than her exact command she would smack him.
"You're a bad boy. Bad boys get deserve what they get. You can move when I say you can."
"Momma my legs are hurting. Can I please move?"
As David continues to get hurt his mother starts to starve him. Then David resorts to stealing food from school and stores. When David is caught doing these things his mother starts to punish him by making him eat his own puke or shoving soap down his throat until David starts to choke on the soap. She is very aggressive with him.
"I´m so sorry sir. I'm just so hungry."
"Hey, what are you doing? You didn´t pay for those. That's stealing put them back right now.
David’s mother begins to make David complete his chores within a certain time limit. If he doesn’t complete them within a certain time limit the mother would threaten David with his life. Then as the mother had a knife in her hand she stabbed David in his chest area because she was angry at David because he didn't complete his chores
"I am sick of you being lazy. If you don´t finish the dishes on time I am going to end it for you"
David’s father starts to spend less time home and so his mother gets aggravated and takes it out on David. She came up with 2 different types of abuse for David. One of the new types of abuse is that the mother makes David get in a bathtub full of freezing water while she holds him down until he can’t breathe, David also becomes worried because one night his father leaves and he doesn’t know when he will be back and when his father is around David isn’t toutred as much.
Please, don't make me. I don't want to go in."
"Go under the water and hold your breath or I will do it myself"
David’s mother takes him into the bathroom and forces him to look at himself while she calls him a bad boy. Then she smashes his face into the mirror. After that incident, David starts to believe that there isn’t a god because he believed for his entire life he would be under his mother’s control. Now David just gives up on all hope and wants life to end already.
"I am a bad boy"
"Repeat after me. I am a bad boy"
David’s father totally abandons the family. David now knows that he is at the mercy of his mother now because his father is gone. Which means he has no hero and no one to stop his torture. This causes David’s mother to become angrier and take it out on David. A couple of days after the father didn’t come back the mom locked David in a room with bottles of ammonia and referred to the room as the gas chamber because David couldn’t breathe while he was in there and often pass out.
"Bad boys have to sleep with the ammonia or do you want me to poor it down your throat."
"Please let me out I can't breathe. My lungs hurt"
