You are soooooo right! I was appalled to hear this last week. What kind of toxic parents are these? I would argue that they are the ones jinxing their children, not the other way round!! In cases such as this, the best way for Ada is to cut off all contact with her parents and only resume it if they decide to do something about their abusive ways!! Only if they see a therapist and then apologize profusely to her should she give them a chance!
