What is a primitive circular stone building with a domed roof also the former residence of Brigham Young?

Possibly the Beehive House at 67 East South Temple in Salt Lake City.

The Beehive House itself is not a circular stone building though, nor does it have a domed roof. It is a rectangle - there is just a beehive on the roof. There is a circular stone building with a domed roof nearby, the Salt Lake Tabernacle. However the tabernacle was never a residence, it has always been used as a concert hall and meeting place.

Check out the photos under "Related Links" below to see images of these buildings.

None of Brigham Young's residences were in circular buildings.

How young can the abuser be?

Most abusers grew up in an environment of abuse while young (yet 1/3 of them did not.) The abuser could have been spoiled (perhaps an only child or only son) and some could have been abused physically or emotionally by one parent or even both parents. A child has no control over such a situation so they live in fear and live in a fantasy type world to deal with this miserable situation. As the child starts to grow so does the resentment. Once out of the home they have known no other way to live and many men don't even realize they have a problem of abusing women. Women can also be abusive for the very same reasons. They can strike and lash out doing mental and physical damage to a man. Most men are brought up not to hit women so men of abusive wives often carry scars of war on their bodies. This happens more often than many people realize. As most parents know the important "molding years" is up to 6 (it's more) and children up to 12 are very impressionable. Children are basically little copy cats and react to the way their parents act as they are their mentors until they leave the home. Marcy

Why do young children have a tendency to lie?

Children are learning what the world is about. They'll always press the limits, and to them there is no such thing as a lie, it's just about making the adults happy. They BELIEVE a lot of the stuff they say, and the things that they DON'T believe, they're just trying to "get along". The responsibility of the adult is to teach the children how to survive in the world. Morality is difficult to teach, especially when children watch the television and hear political leaders equivocate by redefining the meaning of "I did not have sex with that woman." As a society, we're moving away from traditional moral values, partially because of the lessons that are taught by Hollywood, video games and the media, and partially by what they are taught when they read the news.

Where did Brigham Young live in Utah?

Brigham Young had three homes in Utah, the first was in Salt Lake City and was called the Beehive House. Once his family outgrew the Beehive House, another home was built right next door, the Lion House. He also had a winter home in St. George. All three of these homes have been preserved or restored and are open for public tours.

Brigham Young also technically owned a handful of other homes but never lived in them. Many of these were homes he purchased for the welfare of widows, who could not afford a place to live on their own.
