Friend on Cafemom being abused by her husband, I can't do anything, can I?

I know a woman on Cafemom who had admit that her husband hits her, threatens to hurt their kids, drinks a lot and she has sex with him so that he doesn't hurt her.

She won't leave him because she is so caught up in this world and his lies about how he's so sorry and he'll never do it again and so on.

I am so scared for this woman and her kids, but I can do NOTHING, she can't be convinced to leave - what can I do??

  • Well the minute she share this info with you she reported a crime and you are an accessory after the fact. If there were not children involved, I would say let her learn from her own mistakes but since there are children involved I would collect all of her e-mails, phone calls and what have not and turn them to CPS for investigation.

    Somebody needs to do what is right by the children who are powerless, voiceless victims in this mess. For her to stay with that monster is her own decision but for her to put her kids in danger is another story. If she is your friend, you need to make that call to protect your friend's children as she is currently unable or unwilling to do it herself. Kid's safety is priority your friends hurt feelings are secondary to protecting the kids.

    She is caught up in a mess but the children don't have a choice, they need help and they need it right away. If your friend lied that's on her but for

  • I agree with bebita. There are children involved so if you have anything you can print out and turn over the CPS, do it.
