Trigger Warning: This episode involves alcoholism and child abuse.
This week we explore another dark episode that portrays some troubling social issues: alcoholism and child abuse. When John Stewart (not that Jon Stewart of Daily Show fame) beats his son into unconsciousness in a drunken rage, the town of Walnut Grove (and especially the Ingalls family) cannot choose to ignore what is happening any longer.
Thanks to Miss Beadle, Ma, Pa, and Doc Baker, appropriate measures are taken in order to provide healing to both the father and son.
