I just found some very disturbing news. I just found out

that my 26 yr old nephew has been through domestic

violence. He was the one being beaten. He was raised to

never raise a hand to any woman, so he stood and there

and took it. He has had  a few black eyes etc. wish I was

there, I would've stood in the middle of them and told her

if ya want to hit him ya gotta get through me first. I know

this is a prime appertunate to give advise but not sure

what exact words to say. keep in mind this is a 26 yr old

kid we are talking about. This is my favorite nephew also.

Thanks for letting me vent. He's no longer with this girl.

Thank God. Jsut please pray for him.

I don't know what to say, either. I mean, he was told to never raise a hand to a woman and here's a woman who is beating him. I think when we raise our children to not hit and then they themselves are being hit, we should also raise them to tell someone. The only problems with this, is that most men know they should tell someone, but who wants to be known as the guy who was beat up by a woman? We need to teach our boys along with our girls that it's alright to tell someone about this stuff. It doesn't make them weak, it makes them stronger. My life was horrible because I actually thought the stuff that was done to me was because I was being punished. No child, or teenager, wants to tell someone the new bruise (or they're pregnant) because they were bad and needed the punishment.

That's so sad. I will definitely pray for your nephew.  I'm just so glad he's not in that relationship anymore.
