relationship and making them feel as if they have no support from
family or friends is key in the abuse.
I was in an abusive relationship for 5 years. My parents “didnt
interfere”. I wish they would have.
Perhaps if someone would have
forced me to make changes I wouldnt have ended in a two week
This is not about letting a daughter make her own decisions, it is
about saving a life ! Now more than a decade later, I work as a
counselor for abused women in my free time. Controling emotionally
can lead to horrific things.
There is no time at all that a woman
should feel imprisoned, or unable to be herself. My advise to the
mother, is do all you can do get your daughter help, counseling, and
keep her safe.
Advising otherwise would be completely irresponsible.
there is a fine line in helping and pushing the person back to the abusive.
imo, mom needs to let her know that she doesn’t feel the relationship is healthy for her, and that she is there for her when and if she needs her. and stay available at any time day or night. but the more she says he’s bad for her, you need to get out, the more apt she is to stay to prove mom wrong.
