It is like watching a train wreck! She has politely told me to mind my own business, I wish I could. I wish I could ignore it and pretend that I didn't know...but it hurts to be a friend to someone in this painful marriage! My heart aches for her child. This man lied to her about an accident that the boy had. He was 4y/o on a motorcycle with no helmet. And crashed! He still has brain damage and memory loss. her dh lied and said that the child fell at home. This is just one example of his 'parenting' skills. It scares the hell outta me! She is in denial...what toAnswer Question

I am sorry that your friend is goin thru this, but until she asks for or goes for the help herself, there isn't much you can do... and if she has asked you to stay out of it, then as hard as it may sound, do what your friend asks...
If the child is in physical and mental danger then you could call your local CPS agency and talk to someone there and see what the options are, but it sounds like to me that your friend doesn't want any type of help out of her situation...

Just be a positive influence and supportive of her. Sometimes all you can do is be there.
