Tell Me Why, Mummy: A Little Boy's Struggle to Survive A Mother's Shameful Secret : From the age of four, David Thomas carried with him the most terrible secret of all - his mother was sexually abusing him every time she got drunk. When sober, David's mother was the perfect mother. David adored her. But when drunk she turned into the monster of David's worst nightmares. Confusingly, when she sobered up, David's mother could never recall anything she'd done. David as completely alone with the daily horror. But things soon became even worse when his stepfather started beating him senseless. Locked in a downward spiral of self-loathing, David did anything to try to forget life at home. Even if it meant breaking the law. Then, one night, he saw a program on TV that changed his life. Suddenly he found the strength to turn his back on his past and make his future worth fighting for.
