If your family (parents, siblings, etc) was generally not good people (abusive or whatever), would you still choose to have a relationship with them and let your child(ren) have a relationship with them or would you cut off all ties? Why or why not?
I see posts sometimes where someone says she comes from an abusive background, but will still continue to have relations with that person(s). I don't understand that. I know some will probably answer "because family is family," but I don't believe that's true or rather I don't believe it's valid reasoning.
I ask, because I'm cutting off all ties with my family (fortunately we're separated by a great distance, so shouldn't be too difficult).

I have a sister who is a total sociopath (seriously), I have no relationship with her, nor do my kids, and I do not intend on changing that! She is NUTS!
