Another "Bad Mother" question from the next chapter I got to read tonight. In a home where the father is abusive, alcoholic, workaholic, or otherwise severely imperfect, is the worse mother the one who stays and tries to keep the family together even though it exposes the kids to more of the behavior or leaves and tears the family apart? (neither is not an option)

Not too many years ago none of this would have mattered women stayed because they had no one to talk to or anywhere to go, but today I just can't see staying.

From personal experience I would say it takes more strength to stay. If the women is strong and knows the reason why he has the problems he has she can help him, in time. It takes knowing when to back off and when to hit him right between the eyes with the truth. It also takes knowing what will set him off. Although there times when no matter what you do he will go off. Most times it's not even anything in the house. It's the outside world. Are there men that are just psychotic and need to put away and the women need to go, yes. There many more who have changed who do see the error of their ways. Most times it comes with a second marriage where both are equal.
