@HerNameIsBuffy, this is so true for me and my eldest brother.  You have described the final end of our relationship so incredibly well.  It really hurt for a long time, but cutting him off was best for both my family and I.  

My father said it less eloquently than you - sometimes you give and give and give but you just get shat on one too many times.

      I am not sure Josh will care about having to support minor kids if he really wants to get away.  We don’t know that he wants to get away.

      As far as what will happen in prison, I see three possible directions for him:

      1. He will focus on being a model prisoner and invent for himself a new identity as a leader and example.  This could include his getting some sort of education, maybe even an associate degree or better.  He would possibly look into some sort of ministry (if he can fool people) or get into some type of “advocacy” group.  Anything to make him feel important and get him perks.

      2. He will turn to drugs to assist him in dealing with the prison life and the sense of having no escape.  So far, that is one line he hasn’t crossed (we think), but he might if he thinks it will give him some pleasure/comfort.

      3. He will hunker down, endure, pretend, do what he needs to do to get by but not put too much effort into anything except his immediate gratification and come out more or less the same as before, but older and more sneaky.

      These are just guesses, and he may combine elements from each, but I definitely think those are the three main directions.

      #2. I now wonder if Josh does do drugs or drinks.  Remember that mugshot where he looked wasted?  We all speculated what he was on. Crying was a possibility but I don’t think so, after crying face looks much different than stoned off your ass face.  The dark web is great for pills, pills are more discreet than pot or booze.  Pills are everywhere unfortunately.   Kids get them using Snapchat these days.  I have an ex that gave me a good education on sneaky drug use.  I can totally see Josh doing that.  The thrill of acquiring and feeling groovy while no one is the wiser is a part of it.  I think Josh could very well go down that route and/or #1 .

      I really can't believe Anna's parents are not there to support her. Even if they think Josh is innocent,  they should still be at her side.

      Amy said she and her mom didn't know about the details of Josh's past crimes. I wonder if Grandma Mary did.

      If it was Josh's upbringing,  then his brothers,  at least one or 2 others, if not all, would be this way.   I don't think pedophiles can be made or rehabilitated.  Josh would be the same but in the secular world is all.  

      I've been deeply pissed off at some of the things I was held back from, never once did I want to harm a child because of it.   Josh is sick, he's wired wrong.  His circumstances gave him ample opportunity and his parents gave him the freedom to keep hurting his sisters.  He would have done it in a 20 bedroom mansion with completely different parents.   

      I had a pretty lonely and crappy upbringing but I didn't cut or do drugs.   

      Nature vs nurture is definitely an interesting topic.  I think pedophilia is beyond good or bad parents in most cases.   

      I don’t think there a wide acceptance of this topic so I won’t say you are wrong or right. I think it’s an extremely complex issue. Of course I have an opinion that I likely can’t prove. I’m no scientist that’s for sure. I’m not great at the hard sciences to be honest. But I do have a belief that his parents play a role in his actions, not his pedophilia. It’s just my personal belief that there are likely to be pedophiles who may not act on it. It seems like pedophiles who are caught committing abuse are the ones studied. I often wonder if there are pedophiles out there who don’t offend. They likely wouldn’t admit it! It’s such a taboo topic that I doubt a person would even want to talk about it privately with a therapist. Maybe some people just live with those proclivities without acting on it. Without victimizing anyone. I personally can’t help but think JB and Michelle excused Josh’s behavior and this helped form his beliefs on how he can harm people and get away with it. A person’s actions should have appropriate consequences. I don’t believe he was ever given proper consequences to those actions and he may not feel the empathy a person should have when perpetrating harm on others. So this is my long winded response of saying it’s a mix of nature and nurture. Nature being the genetics and nurture being his parents’ inability to address it properly. Which isn’t surprising because I often say that when it comes to so much of human behavior! I’m predictable.

      Ahh, that new thread smell. Let's kick it off with Abbie plugging her book. Abbie's mom read it and thinks it's amazing, which has the same energy as, "my mom thinks I'm handsome with my new haircut". Literally no one cares what your mom thinks. Let me know when the NYT gives it a glowing review.

      I'm almost tempted to read it for no other reason than the chapter on mom guilt. That's probably where she really lets her narcissism ramble unchecked.
