When Dad Hurts Mum: Helping Your Children Heal the Wounds of Witnessing Abuse

Lundy Bancroft

Can my partner abuse me and still be a good parent? Should I stay with my partner for my children’s sake? How should I talk to my children about the abuse and help them heal? Am I a bad mother? Mothers in physically or emotionally abusive relationships ask themselves these questions every day. Here, a counsellor reveals how abusers interact with and manipulate children and how mothers can help their children recover from the trauma of witnessing abuse.
