Publisher Description

Written by a therapist who specializes in abusive men, this guide reveals how abusers interact with and manipulate children—and how mothers can help their children recover from the trauma of witnessing abuse.

Can my partner abuse me and still be a good parent? Should I stay with my partner for my children's sake? How should I talk to my children about the abuse and help them heal? Am I a bad mother?

Mothers in physically or emotionally abusive relationships ask themselves these questions every day. Whether it’s physical or “just” emotional abuse, whether it’s aimed at them or you, whether they see or hear it, your kids need you.

This book, the first ever of its kind, shows mothers how to:

• Protect children and help them heal emotionally
• Provide love, support, and positive role models, even in the midst of abuse
• Increase their chances of winning custody
• Help their kids feel good about themselves

“A must-read for every mother who has been abused...it offers the knowledge women need to protect their children and help them heal.”—William S. Pollack, Ph.D., author of the national bestseller Real Boys

LordCalamar ,

And now the other side

What we also need is the other side of this equation, "when mom (or step mom)hurts dad". As a man that has been emotionally a physically abused by his wife (both my first and my second) I can say for a fact it is not always the mans' fault. It is a perspective lacking in the discussion of abuse. This book has tools and advice that can be applied yes, but it is aimed at women. As a single dad recovering from two bouts of abuse I need the tools to be forged for me as well. However, other than that moment on my soap box, it is a very informative book.
