His father abused his mother as well as the children.

His brother and sister went to live with their Grandfather and step-Grandmother, and he went to live with his Aunt and Uncle. His brother and sister were told he was their cousin. When his Aunt and uncle divorced because of Domestic Violence that he witnessed, he was sent to live with his sister and brother at his Grandparents house. Shortly after he moved in, his mother got remarried and came to get him and his brother and they went out to work at a carnival. Alcoholism, drug addiction, physical, sexual, emotional, spiritual abuse and mental health issues were rampant and the dysfunctional family systems were not only just acceptable but passed on as normal.
