Well I was scalded with hot water off the stove when I was 18 mos old and my dad accused my mom of doing it deliberately, but I was tall enough to reach the pot handle it I pulled it off on myself. All my life, my mom told me over and over to turn the pot handles inward, especially if there's little children around. I know my mom didn't do that to me, it grieved her to her soul that it happened. Turned out, I had keloid scars from it that covered my left arm (I'm 42 and still have the scars), but she used to have to take me in the tub and using a knife now, skim the top layers of the scars off nightly. She said she would just cry and cry while doing it. Now THAT'S what kind of mom I had! Never judge before you really know. Turned out my dad's heart was surely not in his marriage to my mom and he did many unloving things to her before he finally left her (but he still took us - knew it would hurt her). RIP MOM
