How do you handle a daughter's physically and emotionally abusive relationship?
Unfortunately, if your daughter won't listen to good advice and she is in denial there isn't much you can do, unless her spouse is physically abusive to her in your home and then you have every right to phone the police and have him arrested. Women that are abused are not stupid. An abuser (without realizing it) makes their web around their victim like a spider to a fly. It can start out very suttle and end up ugly. Some good signs of an abusive personality are a person that does not like interacting with her family on occasion, or they refuse to mingle with her friends and often abusers love to move to either another town or to a deserted area. They usually pick out-of- the-way places where they can surround themselves with their own familiar environment and render their victim useless. Abusers usually come from disfunctional families, but every so often you get one that has had a great up-bringing and is just mean to the bone. An abuser will first start picking away at the abused by lowering their self esteem. Then they will methodically plan their next attack which is to put the fear of God into her. They may even tell her if she doesn't shut-up and keep their dirty little secret quiet he will harm her family or (in many cases) take the children away from her and she'll never see them again. The above sounds dramatic and surreal, but believe me when I say it isn't. I help abused women so I have heard many different scenerios and they don't make a pretty picture. When you can, just tell your daughter you love her and that you are always there for her and if she decides to leave him you will be there for her. If you ignore or insult her abuser he has the power to keep your daughter from you. You want to stay in contact so bite your tongue and pick your time to try and get this guy away from her. I suggest you get in touch with your local "Women's Abuse Center" in your area (if you can't find them, then phone Mental Health in your area and they will put you in touch with the Abused Women's Center) and they will be happy to guide you through trying to free your daughter from this guy. Good luck God Bless Marcy For guidance you might wish to contact the National Domestic Abuse Hotline at 1-800-799-7233. Their site can be found at... http://www.ndvh.org
You should definitely go. An abusive relationship is unhealthy for you both physically and emotionally. If you continue to stay with that abusive person, you will more than likely end up being attracted to more abusive people in the future. In fact some abusive relationships can lead to suicide and/or being murdered.
Communicating with your abuser is an art form. It is called "walking on eggshells". If you think the relationship is getting emotionally abusive no need to talk...best to walk and do it fast. Once the abuse begins in the cycle, it is hard to get out. The longer the cycle has been spinning the more difficult to leave.

My emotionally abusive bf walked away from our relationship and acts as if he can move on but I am not dealing so well with the ending of the relationship why?
Get and read the book WOMEN WHO LOVE PSYCHOPATHS Don't be put off by the title - it will help you understand.

Rather than torture you into staying in a emotionally ill relationship, You get to move on with your life.. Everything happens for a reason take this as…
I don't know a lot about the exact percentage, but think about it. Abusive consists of physically and verbally. I have been in an abusive relationship, and it took me over a year to get out of it. He wouldn't let me break up with him, he threatened to kill himself and he constantly yelled and threatened me. Imagine every other relationship.
What do you do if your husband is emotionally and physically abusive and you just bumped into an old boyfriend and you are tempted to cheat?
==One thing at a time== If your husband is truly abusive (you're not just looking for an excuse to wander), then you need to get out of the relationship, and fast! Once you have removed yourself from the abusive relationship, and have a chance to reflect on the reasons you chose a man like that, and also the reasons for remaining in the relationship once you found out that he was abusive, then...and only then…
Is a physically abusive relationship defined by a single incident or a consistent and habitual pattern of conduct?
It doesn't matter. If someone was physically abusive toward you it certainly violates trust. You have to ask if you can ever trust again. Will you be waiting for it to happen again? Will you be worried that if you say or do the wrong thing that there will be another incident of abuse? That's no basis for a relationship.
Yes. Most physical abusers are first emotionally abusive. Some never physically abuse, but remain emotionally abusive, or recognize the problem and get help. There is no time line of when the abuse will or will not escalate to physical abuse. Abuse, no matter what form it is in, should not be accepted or tolerated.
You dont really know if you are in a abusive relationship because he do try to put you in control but when he hit you he just pull your hair or something but you dont think he is really abusive help?
If he touches you in any other matter than a comforting or intimate wanted way then he is physically abusing you and yes this is a abusive relationship that can progressively get worse if you are already allowing him to do what he is doing at this point. When he tries to let you be in control of anything that is his way of trying to shift his guilt to you and to blame you…

Is there any assistance out there to help someone get out of bad relationship like assisting with finances to leave?
There are places that are specifically to help women leave abusive men. I live in upstate New York and there is a place called Cornerstone Manor. It is a stepping stone safe home to help women and their children get on their feet so they can support themselves financially and emotionally. If you are involved in an abusive relationship, please don't hesitate to leave. I thank God that He gave me the strength to get…
You mostly likely don't, because you can't. Your daughter gets to pick her own relationships, and she gets to do so in as stupid a fashion as she chooses. You may be able to help her if she decides to leave the abusive relationship and get to a safer space, but this is a decision she has to make on her own.
You are 6 months pregnant with your abusive boyfriend's twin boys these will be your first children together you both have no outside children should you stay with him?
Not if he is abusive...physically, mentally, or emotionally. Those boys will eventually get the same treatment from him as you do, he can be the father...but that doesn't mean you can't raise them without him. Get out of that relationship before you or your unborn children are hurt. And if you can't see yourself without him...at least try. It never hurts to try, especially if he is already hurting you.
You may be hooked on your own image or fantasy of what the relationship should be, and on the first stages of it, or the honeymoon period of a relationship. Abusers can be especially charming in the beginning, to hook you emotionally. You need to assess the relationship for what it's become, not what you wish it could be or was in the beginning.
It's not up to you to stop your father from abusing you physically and emotionally. His abusive behaviour is not about you; it is not a reflection of your character. It is solely about his own mental and emotional state. Your duty is to get away from the abuser, to find a safe haven, and to report him to the authorities. Let the courts and the healthcare system deal with your father. It's not your…
One reason may be is that they don't know how to help. Another reason may be they are afraid to help. The power that an abuser has over the abused is frightening, both emotionally and physically. It is not unheard of that an abusive relationship can end in murder. Often times the abused person has been brainwashed into thinking they don't deserve anything better. Or they know they need help, but are too afraid to…
What should i do if I am 17 and my parents physically and emotionally abuse me and now I'm pregnant and the police won't get me out of here?
It can. People with ADD don't usually have the social skills that most have. They say things without thinking which is sometimes hurtful. When they are children they don't do this intentionally, however, because of peoples anger toward them for such comments and often being accused of deliberately hurting people some will just say the hell with it and not care anymore or begin deliberately doing it. People with ADD are more likely to be…
How do you get your sister out of a abusive relationship when she is denial and its emotionally killing her?
The key to the problem is your sister and until she realizes that she is in an abusive relationship there is not much you can do. Of course you love your sister, but the best thing you can do is to say nothing and know she has to learn the hard way. This is certainly a difficult task for you as you want to keep her safe and see her happy, but your sister has…
Abusive relationships are some of the most difficult ones to resolve. THis type of relationship assumes that one partner is abusive and continues to be so because there is no response to the abuse. The difference here centers on "self-assurance." The abusive partner continues his or her behavior because there is no response. I can not suggest how the abused party should respond because in most instances they feel diminished. This situation can only be…

Three of his children have stated VERY publicly that Bing was a physically and emotionally abusive father, one admits to the use of corporal punishment but denies it was abusive. Hard to say: some people exaggerate their stories in order to get publicity, and some abuse victims deny their victimhood. You can take your pick.

How do emotionally abusive and sometimes absent fathers affect their daughters relationships with other men?
My own father was cruel to everyone by acting selfish, and I've had only 1 serious relationship as a result of it - the guy I dated was a total you-know-what! I have NO confidence in my judgment of men and I don't trust them, because I don't want to keep running into men who remind me of my father. I no longer speak to my father as a result of that.
