Checked Out

One parent shuts down completely.
Keeping malice off petty stuff.
Crying wolf unnecessarily.
She’s better off all by herself.

The other parent cuts off all contact.
No warning signs.
Just washed his hands and walked away.
Apparently, he can’t handle the pressure.

Their children don’t know what
it’s like to have a loving and caring
mother and father .
They’ve both used excuses after excuses
to check out of their duties as parents.
