You showed wisdom divorcing this controlling man...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Marie, your daughter is minimizing what happened to her when she compares the horrific and tragic case of Jennifer Hudson's family to that of her own life. Child abuse does not have to result in death in order for it to BE child abuse.

Your daughter needs counselling, Marie. Without counselling, she will have that much more to deal with at some later point in her life. If she continues to minimize the abuse, many areas of her life will suffer for it; perhaps when she reaches a particular stage in her life, perhaps when the psychological damage manifests itself in very destructive ways. I do hope both you and your daughter are getting the help you need.

Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
