    Eye OpenerLittle JD is now six, and still tells us, and Mr Ted., about his everyday life If you have read Dear Teddy or Teddy 1 , you will know this boy s life is nothing ordinary, but not for pleasing reasons.This book is the second part of the memoir of a man who was emotionally, physically and sexually abused at least from when he was five years old And the story is told from a child s perspective.As it happened with the first book in the series, I think this one is a must read However, it took me a really long time to write the reviews I m not sure I am expressing the full length to which this book has made me think, and then think again But I guess that is a good pointer to a powerful story and a very accomplished writing.Some of the thoughts I came up with can be read on my review of Dear Teddy Reading this second part I was even devastated by JD s story Before I ve told you about him an intellectually gifted, highly sensitive boy who craves love and affection partly because that is common in any child and partly, because those extremely important feelings are denied to him by his most significant others his own parents.Things do not get any better for young JD only worse the old kinds of abuse harden, new abusers enter the picture, and we start to see the early onset of defensive mechanisms on this child s psyche, because survival, otherwise, proves impossible I think the author does a great job showing how, for example, dissociation, self harming yes, self harming at six and, less known, OCD can develop in a very small child as a relatively direct result of abuse and the feeling of helplessness that comes with it also from an upbringing in a household in which anything this little boy does might be wrong, bad, and thus unravel hell.By the introduction of a character called Graham, Stockholm takes us another step further into the mind of abused child Sexual abuse to a child so young really mixes their feelings and patterns of thinking about many things, such as boundaries, intimacy and the sense of right and wrong The book is wonderful in how it proves this especially true when the abusers are the child s parents And it gives another turn when, in the midst of non stopping, violent abuse, steps a figure who abuses the child in a way that is not physically harming Reactions to how the story plays out with this character might leave you with disturbing thoughts you had never thought you would have Imagine the effect on little JD Another aspect of the book that denounces the harsh reality of child abuse is the attitudes of the rest of the world Abuse of children especially the sexual kind, and when the victims are boys is considered to be so nonexistent or private, there are some times signs of it all over the place , and still people don t notice, or do not want to notice I wonder about the teachers at JD s school the state of his clothes, his bruises, his difficulties to remain seated, his fights with classmates when he has, otherwise, a calm demeanor The only thing missing was a big card attached to his chest saying I m being abused Please, help me The same goes to his mother s lady friends, the people at stores It actually enraged me how nobody did anything how nobody tried to scratch below the surface of an anguished and scared child shrugging when spoken to about things he was not supposed to tell Finally, I suffered and keep suffering when I think of JD still loving his mother and father, still fighting to be the son they want, still blaming himself every time he feels pain every time they hurt him JD was a gentle, sensitive, loving child And, never, ever, was anything that happened his fault.Be ready to shed tears, but I urge you to read this story.

    I am one of those people who loves to read books I also love to write reviews on them if I have enjoyed them I take pleasure in doing so and the words I choose to write just kind of tumble right out as I go I have, however, never before found myself staring at the screen of my computer for so long, wondering what the best way to word myself is I struggled this way after reading both J.D Stockholm s first book, Dear Teddy and then this book, Telling Teddy How do you write about how much you enjoyed a book that is a grievously true story all about child abuse in its worst form Is it right or appropriate to even use the word enjoy Probably not So, let me simply explain what it is about this book that I was affected by.Just as in the first book, the events in Telling Teddy shock, horrify and unhinge you You just can not come to terms with the fact that there are parents who could do these things to their children Who could be so cold blooded and heartless In so many different ways Starving, neglecting, molesting, verbally and physically abusing their own son Indubitably, there is something intrinsically wrong with these people s make up You constantly feel your anger warring with the dismay and anguish you feel for the young boy Where are these people s natural inclination to feel compassion and humaneness, not for a stranger, but for their own flesh and blood How can you sit and watch a little boy cry in fear or pain and feel nothing How can you allow others to hurt and abuse him instead of being overwhelmed by a parent s constitutionally profound need to protect and fight for their child s safety How can you ignore his terrified screams and desperate pleas for help How can you do what you did to your son While reading, you are appalled by so many countless events that take place that you do not know which to be nauseated or angry about Your hatred for the child s parents threatens to consume you on than one occasion The father s repeated maltreatment and abuse of his child is sickening and enraging This is an absolutely callous and degenerate human being However, although you constantly find yourself angered by his father, it is his mother s actions that literally make you gasp in horror Not only did she allow what was happening, but the horrendous fact is that she encouraged it too You reach a point where you are completely overcome with contempt and resentment for her In my eyes, the part she played in this is almost worse She could have protected her child She could have saved him from a life of untold horror and despair She could have saved him from her depraved husband She could have saved him from sick, debauched men She could have been a good mother The sense of helplessness you feel when you see this story through the boy s eyes, when he uses a child s words and perception to try and explain what is happening to him, is crushing You know what is coming, yet you cannot protect him His innocence is endearing and disarming, and his continuous hope and struggle to win his parents love is heartbreaking Despite all he endures, he loves his family and dreads the thought of being parted from them One of the most tragic scenes in the book is where he runs after his parents car when they are leaving him behind, begging them to take him with While you may feel a sense of relief and joy at this parting, you cannot but feel sorrow for the small child s sense of despair and abandonment Another part of the book that completely shocked me was the child s encounter with yet another abuser, Graham What shocked me, however, was not the actual event in itself, but my feelings towards it I was appalled to find myself feeling thankful when the young boy got to stay with the man at the weekends After trying to figure out why I could possibly feel this way after all, he was still being abused I realised that out of the two evils, I felt this was the less of the two The child was being fed there, he felt safe and warm, maybe even loved, and to my mind, that was infinitely preferable to what he felt at home I was racked with guilt and shame, though, for thinking and feeling this way What does this say about me as a person It revealed a part of myself that I did not recognise, and that scared me We all believe we have our limits, but when have we truly been tried to see how much we would adhere to them This book was an eye opener in than one way A lot of people have told me that they cannot read this book because they cannot bear to read about an innocent, helpless child s suffering It would be too upsetting and unsettling While I can understand their reasoning, I can not help but think how much this reflects society s deep rooted attitude and reaction to the problem of child abuse Out of sight, out of my mind If we cannot see it, we do not have to deal with it We do not want to believe that this goes on We do not want to be upset by that which we feel we have no control over We might not like to admit it, but we are good at avoidance The author has once again done a brilliant job of getting his story across Telling Teddy is well written and insightful Yes, it will make you cry and sob, and leave you with a feeling of deep sadness and helplessness, but it is absolutely worth reading This story will touch you and stay with you forever.

    This book was even emotional than the first one Touches my heart and makes me sad to know that things like this are an every day occurrence for some children Such a sad, yet beautifully written book.

    i love how the author writes as if it really was a 6 7 year old boy writing it That plus the story, I think I might feel for this series than I did for the child called it.

    Again, moving and heartbreaking at the same time This one a bit graphic of the abuse but it makes you open your eyes and understand that this did happen and still does to so many other silent children It begins to make someone understand what childhood abuse does to a person mentally Warning again, if you have experienced childhood abuse in any way, this is a trigger Read with caution

    Same opinions as last time Extremely heart wrenching, but the child s POV just doesn t do it for me The constant repetition of phrase and words is understandable because that s how children talk, but it doesn t read well for me.Nonetheless, J.D s parents are dicks.It seems we re also starting to see childhood OCD I m intrigued to see how he explores this.

    Telling teddyI felt the story was too long just talking about how bad the child was I m going to read the next book,but hope it has a better narrator and story I think that the narrator needs to learn to let the words flow better Also I hope this child comes out of this a sane and well adjusted person.

    TellingTeddy How do I even write anything This about a time in years past We all know that do to all of the firm s of social media unfortunately these behaviors are not so uncommon But surprise they were not all that uncommon before either Obviously

  9. says:

    Child abuse told through the eyes of the child, very graphic and extremely detailed especially as such a young child.

    I read all of Dear Teddy, or should I say I struggled through it I don t know why I thought this book would be any better I gave up on it about 1 4 of the way through and did not finish it.
