It is always admirable for any person who believes a child is being abused to take steps to correct the situation. However, 'stepping in' to such a stituation is most definitely not advisable as such actions regardless of how well meaning sometimes create a more hostile environment for all the parties involved. Foster parent classes are an option, but no guarantee that the concerned individual will be placed in that position if the circumstances arise. One suggestion would be for the concerned individual to discuss the specifics of the situation with a social worker, clergy member, counselor, etc. who is qualified and experienced in domestic/child abuse matters before taking any other action.
