Schizophrenia is a chronic and disabling brain disease.

Essay #4
                                        " The Civilizing of Genie"


                              Dear Genie’s Mother ;



By watching the video of “ Secret of the Wild Child”. I learned how she lived and what she went through. Because Genie was a special child , I understand it was hard for you to raise your child .However that was not a reason for giving her up ;you should have be on the first one to help your daughter at that time.

Genie is a girl who had been isolated in a small room from the infancy to the age of 13 by your  schizophrenic husband .And you know that two of your children died because of your schizophrenic husband .How could you let him lock baby Genie in the small room ,and where were you all that time when your daughter was isolated from the world and she sat in the room doing nothing , but moving her hands  and feet ? Genie did not have any freedom to act the way she wanted to like a  normal  baby. She was abused by her father, If I were be a mother I would never let my husband abuse my child  .She did not have any contact with other people. Your daughter did not get chance to go to school when she had to. I don’t understand  why you did not help your daughter Genie was locked in the small room  with no toys, with no food, when she was very young at that time she was only 18 month old .At that time she needed love ,especially  your love, and  she needed special care . But you did not do anything .What kind of mother are you ? And how could you do  that to your daughter?  Why did you not ask for help from other people or from your friends? . I am very shocked that you let your daughter  be isolated from the world. AS a result , she became  a mentally and physically retarded child , especially in the language  facility.


        After Genie was found . The specialists  worked with  Genie to help her. You  did not help her at all. You gave up on her .You said that you could not handle her because she was a very abnormal child ,but still what  kind of mother are you  if you give up  your own child because she was abnormal? You should be the first person  to run and help her . I am sorry , but I think that you are a very bad mother for any other child ,especially for Genie because she needed  special care. Genie needed your love, but you never gave  her your love and your help. How could you send your daughter to the nursing home ? Instead of sending your daughter to the nursing home, you should have done  everything, that you never did for your daughter  before when she was a little baby. 

        I believe that  to raise Genie was not easy thing to do ,but that was not a reason to give up on  her in that situation .You are the mother of a  beautiful daughter; you should be always the first one to help her .
