Rapper DMX is known for his raw, gritty street verses about the violent drug trade. But DMX also has a soft side that cries out for his mommy when times get rough.

The Baltimore native, born Earl Simmons, will turn 42 in December. As a boy DMX spent much of his time running the streets of Yonkers, NY, in robbing crews. His extensive juvenile arrest record is sealed by the courts. To the world at large, DMX, who has 10 children, is known more for his criminal rap sheet, which includes arrests for rape, drug possession, DUI's, animal cruelty, weapons possession, and more.

DMX and his wife of 12 years, Tashera Simmons, appear on the VH1 reality show "Couples Therapy."

In last night's episode, DMX breaks down and says his life might have turned out differently if his mother had only told him she loved him.

Children require these basic necessities to grow up to be healthy adults: food, water, a safe home environment, and to know that they are loved.

Not telling your child you love him can cause him to grow up emotionally crippled. It's not enough to just provide clothes on their backs and a roof over their heads.

Watch the emotional video clip after the break. And if you've never told your child how much you love him (or her), please do it today.

    My parents never told me they loved me when I was growing up, but I knew they cared for me from their actions.

    DMX's mom not telling him that she loved him might have been just a small part of his problems while growing up. If dude started compiling his criminal record as a youth, it sounds like he was missing a lot of necessities including discipline.

    Oh wow, that was HARD to watch...

    In a study of the rhesus monkey, the baby monkey's mother fed him and another female monkey gave the baby monkey attention, affirmation, and other forms of nurturing. Guess who the baby monkey attached to?

    The female monkey that NURTURED him. The baby monkey chose nurturing over food.

    I kinda figured there was more to him than meets the eye. Parents just don't know how strong their love is and if you don't show love to your children they can't love others or themselves. I'm in now way saying that this is EVERY case because there are some children who were shown love and still fall by the wayside but it is food for thought.

    Good morning SR :waves:

  • DoNotDeleteMe

    Discipline is a child's security blanket so to speak. If you withhold discipline, the child will grow up feeling abandoned...like no one cares. The discipline I am talking about is redirection...not beating a child which is abuse.

    I remember when 50 said that when he was running the streets with his frieds and their mothers would come looking for them and fight with everything in them to get their sons off of the street. He said that he would be out as a young child sometimes in the wee hours of the morning and no one ever came looking for him. You could see the sadness in his eyes.

    The problems that a lot of Black mothers have (aside from the high rate of single parenthood) is this "boys will be boys" parenting approach. We are under the impression that boys are emotionally self-sufficient and therefore we don't affirm and re-affirm them like we do our little girls. We have got to start allowing our boys to cry, to laugh, to smile, to hug, to express themselves through their gifts, etc so that they can grow up well rounded and not have this false bravado. It is killing them...literally and figuratively.

    Truer words have never been spoken. I remember my brother got in trouble because he was hugging people all the damn time at school, it was cute to me though :lol:

    But DMX was abuse very badly though, mother would do sneak attacks on him when he was sleep with thick extension cords, would say horrible things to him and I think it stemmed from his father. I think she even told hiim that he wasn't gonna be shat in his life and was gonna get raped in the butt when he gets older when he gets locked up. I thought that was just evil. It def explains a lot.

    Since we are discussing a Black male (DMX) I did not feel the need to address other races. I am always cautious of the "but White people do it, too" mentality. Bottom line is this: if we take on that mentality then it is a monkey see monkey do mentality (darn...me and monkeys today). We must start focusing on OURSELVES and how we as Black mothers are negatively influencing our Black male children.

    I know a guy just like this, his mother took out her anger on him because she chose a horrible man to have kids with. He turned out okay (left the house and practically raised himself with help from the state) but there is a whole lot of situations just like this going on and the stress of being a single parent is no joke. Maybe that is where it stemmed from. Either way, don't blame the kid for your misfortune, blame yourself for making irresponsible decisions.

    Watched DMX's behind the music and he has been through a lot. Has been on crack since the age of 14 and we just never knew it. I feel really bad for him it's like he is haunted by his demons and doesnt know how to let go. I hope he gets better.

  • http://pearlswindow.com Carrington

    That's why my baby is 16 and I still tell him I love him every chance I get. When I see him, we hug and kiss. (and fukk what ANYBODY has to say about the fact that I'm going to show my baby that I love him and he, me!)

    When he was about 7 years old, I started waiting until we were in the middle of Walmart and his friends were around, I'd grab his little a$$ and hug him and smother him with kisses. He used to be HOT! LMAO

    He didn't understand it then, but there was a method to my madness. I didn't want him to EVER become one of those black boys who grow up going along with what everybody else was doing because he didn't want to be perceived as weak, as a punk, or because he cared what anybody else thought, so, I made sure that he understood that what other people thought about him, or me was inconsequential to the bigger picture. If you drink, smoke, do drugs, rob somebody, etc. it will NOT be because you went along with it because you felt pressured, not because you weren't taught better, it'll be because you were just plain ole stupid.

    Til this day, my baby and I will be walking through the mall and he'll throw his arm around my shoulder and walk alongside me.

    Once, I was taking him to a school dance and I walked him into the school with a friend of mind to make sure he got where he needed to be and as we were walking in, he put his arms around my shoulders and I pushed him and said, "Move, you see all these girls in this school lookin' at you..." and he said, "You think I care what these people think about me? I'm not afraid to show you that I love you in front of ANYBODY, most of them WISH they had a you."

    Right there, I knew, "I da pappy" cause those were the EXACT words I had instilled into him since he was a little boy.

    Blaming black mothers again I see. Well until black fathers step up to the plate, black mothers are having to do it all. DMX had a terrible childhood and his mother was a contributing factor, but stop bashing all single mothers. We are the sheros in our kids lives, not the villian.

    The situation with his mother is no excuse for him continuing to be an ass…he is a grown ass man…he treats his wife like trash and apparently doesn’t even have a relationship with his kids…his intervention cry was sad but he’s at an age where he should be taking personal accountability for his actions instead of blaming his mother

    What happened to Royce? I don’t think she’s worth following on twitter lol
    -----------------------------

    Well, the other day, her and Dez's babymama got into it bad on twitter which led to his babymama posting sext messages from Dez to her on twitter. Royce denied it and said that they were fake but it was a really big deal. She defended him HARD. Meanwhile, Dez was silent during the whole thing.

    Last night, he finally responded and said that while he and his babymama have never had sex since he got her knocked up or while he's been with Royce, he did admit to sending the text.

    Royce said she felt betrayed and she said she had to do what's best for her. Ol' boy said, "do what you gotta do."

    That about sums it up.

    “Move, you see all these girls in this school lookin’ at you…” and he said, “You think I care what these people think about me? I’m not afraid to show you that I love you in front of ANYBODY, most of them WISH they had a you.”

    Right there, I knew, “I da pappy” cause those were the EXACT words I had instilled into him since he was a little boy.

    That’s why my baby is 16 and I still tell him I love him every chance I get. When I see him, we hug and kiss. (and fukk what ANYBODY has to say about the fact that I’m going to show my baby that I love him and he, me!)

    When he was about 7 years old, I started waiting until we were in the middle of Walmart and his friends were around, I’d grab his little a$$ and hug him and smother him with kisses. He used to be HOT! LMAO

    He didn’t understand it then, but there was a method to my madness. I didn’t want him to EVER become one of those black boys who grow up going along with what everybody else was doing because he didn’t want to be perceived as weak, as a punk, or because he cared what anybody else thought, so, I made sure that he understood that what other people thought about him, or me was inconsequential to the bigger picture. If you drink, smoke, do drugs, rob somebody, etc. it will NOT be because you went along with it because you felt pressured, not because you weren’t taught better, it’ll be because you were just plain ole stupid.

    Til this day, my baby and I will be walking through the mall and he’ll throw his arm around my shoulder and walk alongside me.

    Once, I was taking him to a school dance and I walked him into the school with a friend of mind to make sure he got where he needed to be and as we were walking in, he put his arms around my shoulders and I pushed him and said, “Move, you see all these girls in this school lookin’ at you…” and he said, “You think I care what these people think about me?

    True, but sometimes it takes others longer to let go of their past and it still haunts them. I have been abused before and I use to say well I didnt turn out a whore or out there in the streets, but as I got older I realize that everybody dont handle all situations the same. It's easy to say let go if you have never been in that place. IMHO

    @ Freda2you:

    Not blaming Black single mothers. However, he was reared by a Black single mother and this is the end result...and this result has been witnessed in a lot of Black males reared by single mothers. So, I felt the need to stick to the fact that his Black single mother caused a lot of emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical pain in his life. He is haunted by his past. I believe that the good always outweighs the evil. Therefore, I am optimistic and believe that even when women find themselves rearing a child as a single parent, that they shine in the situation and give their child the protectiion, provision, and guidance that they need in order to become a well-adjusted member of society.

    See Royce the type of chick that is in love with being in love. She never gives things a chance to play itself out. She takes every word for its bond, just gets open at the most simple things. This is why her FATHER wasn't talking to her because she introducing every damn dude to him when she hardly knows them!! This is why he was like you gotta chill, but she's stubborn so she had to learn the hard way.

    I been through mad different phases like Masons
    To find my way & now I know that happy days are not far away
    If I'm strong enough I'll live long enough to see my kids
    Doing something more constructive with they time
    Than bids I know because I been there
    Now I'm in there sit back & look
    At what it took for me to get there
    First came the bullshit the drama with my mama
    She got on the fly shit until i split
    And said that I'm gonna be that seed
    That doesn't need much to succeed
    Strapped with mad greed and a heart that doesn't bleed
    I'm ready for the world or at least I thought I was
    Baggin' niggas when I caught a buzz
    For thinking about how short I was
    Going too fast it wouldn't last but yo I couldn't tell
    Group homes & institutions, prepare my ass for jail
    They put me in a situation forcin' me to be a man
    When I was just learnin' to stand without a helpin' hand
    Damn, was it my fault, somethin' I did
    To make a father leave his first kid at 7 doin' my first bid?
    Back on the scene at 14 with a scheme
    To get more cream than I'd ever seen in a dream
    And by all means I will be living high off the hog
    And I never gave a fuck about much but my dog
    That's my only motherfucker I had offered my last
    Just another little nigga headed nowhere fast
