      RE: Budget101.com : Daughter in a abusive relationship

      This is exactly the issue. I also speak from experience. She has no idea the world that?s waiting for her when she pulls herself out of this, with your support waiting for her at the end of it.

      So much good advice, I?m really glad to see it.

      I can?t disagree with any of it.

      Keep your negative opinions quiet, however, begin encouraging her to make steps to improve herself without comparing her to other children, cousins, your friends? children etc.

      If she isn?t in school discuss an interest she might build into a career, such as nursing which is in such high demand she could have school entirely paid for. Or shorter programs in the healthcare or technical fields.

      Her confidence needs building. No amount of telling her she?s better than she?s allowing herself to be is going to change anything. She has to prove it to herself.

      Compliment her on anything and everything she does *by herself* without mentioning anyone else. No ?see, you don?t need him for ____?.

      Positive reinforcement, just like when she was a potty-training tyke.

      Back away, but be there. I love the idea of inviting them to do things. How well do you know this gentleman?

      It is possible *he* doesn?t know what a positive loving relationship even looks like. Be an example, not a warden.

      Keeping in contact with her will enable you to show your support of her as well as enable you to keep an eye on her physically. If you feel she is TRULY in danger, do not hesitate to contact the police.

      Keeping you in my thoughts.

      Shanna
