  • p.s. this is why some states have the Failure to Protect Law which says if the mom doesn't get the kids out of that environment SHE can be arrested. Children learn what they live. they see abuse as normal behavior. I'm glad you saw it as wrong though.

  • I am in an abusive relationship.
    I dont have the money to leave, and no family or friends to help me out and im 2k miles away from my home state.
    so I guess im screwed.
    also I tryed to tell his grandmother but she dident believe me, even with bruses on me.
    please dont judge me, you dont know me or what im going threw.
