My friend is in a tough spot. Her children's father is with an abusive woman. Her daughter (4 yrs old) has come home talking about seeing the dad's girlfriend slapping and choking him and how she yells at him all the time. The 4 year old has asked BM if her daddy is a piece of shit like the gf says... =( .. and this morning BM had court with BF for child support and said he showed up with scratches and hand prints on his neck but wouldn't even talk to her about what happened to cause them.
She is concerned for her children to have to witness the fighting. Is there anything she can do to keep her children away from that situation, or request that the gf not be present during visitation even though there aren't any police records since the BF won't admit the issues?
