Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: When Dad Hurts Mom: Helping Your Children Heal the Wounds of Witnessing Abuse (Paperback)
This was recommended to me by a lady on a Kids Turn course run by my local Relate, She had been in a similar situation to me having escaped from a control freak, divorced him but he was still trying to control her life as they had a pre-teen daughter. I'm still sharing a house with mine, in the process of divorcing him but he is reluctant to move out. This book really opened my eyes to a lot of things, my abuse was all verbal, but abuse is abuse whatever form it takes. I didn't realise until 3 years ago that I was in an abusive relationship!! I have purchased and read other books which I have found illuminating. This is a must for anyone who even suspects their relationship may be abusive, I found myself among the pages and it was scary to realise this was my life. It gave me strength and put me on the road to seeing things much clearer than I had been viewing them. My daughter has been affected by verbal abuse also, her father is unable to see the devastation he has caused.
