Who else has he seen treat you with disrespect? call you names? In some families where there is domestic violence some children will choose to identify with the aggressor rather than the victim. Through identification they adopt the behavior of the aggressor toward those whom they perceive to be the victim or like the victim. If this is the case in your home I urge you to re-think your choices and contact the National Domestic Violence Hot-line. Good luck.
