we should also remember that spousal abuse and child abuse is not only physical but mental abuse is just as damaging. I always struggled to keep my opinions to myself when relatives or friends would Dad I will always be your little girl financial burden mug say “But their still your parents” yes I was abused as were my siblings.
Dad I will always be your little girl financial burden mug
My mom protected herself from my fathers beating by sacrificing us. He’d come home in some moods and he’d get upset with the smallest of things (things that to this day makes no sense to me) and would demand that my brothers and I go to him so we’d get beat. We’d try to hide in our rooms but my mother would actually trick us into opening the door and send us to our beatings. We had no protection and no one to turn to out of fear of being out in foster care. Dad I will always be your little girl financial burden mug I use to beg my mom to leave my dad. It wasn’t until I met my husband that he stopped hitting me. He tried to hit me in front of my husband and my husband stood in his face and told him no. If he felt like hitting someone he should hit a man not a woman. I hate my parents for what they did to us but now I’m stuck taking care of them.
my husband and got married when we were in our teens so we had no means of affording our own apartment (we lived in nyc). That means we lived with my parents during the first few years of our marriage. I remember that he was pushing my mother around and I yelled at him to leave her alone and he came after me. That’s when my husband stepped in between us and stood in his face and told him he wasn’t ever going to put his hands on me again. I am so glad you found a good man, As a survivor I will kill anybody and abuses children in my face. Never will I want a child be abused either physically or mentally in my presence.
