Mike Rinder: The abusive fatherWhat it was like growing up as Mike Rinder’s daughter
Child abuse takes many forms. It can be violence, neglect or years of abusive comments from a loveless parent who believes his children can do nothing right. That’s Mike Rinder. He’s a cold-hearted man, especially to his own children. I have stories and, though some seem small, as a child they had a profound effect on me. It showed me from an early age his lack of care, attention and love.
Mike Rinder didn’t care when I was hit by a car
When I was 8 years old I was hit by a car that nearly killed me. I spent many weeks in the hospital and many more months recovering. I could not go back to school for a year due to my serious injuries. I cannot remember ever seeing my dad during this time. My mom stayed with me night and day until I was better. I would wake up in the night screaming and my mom was there. My father, Mike Rinder, was never there. He didn’t care.
