How do you help your son regarding his absent abusive father?
In Canada we have "Big Brothers" and these are men that give their time to young boys that have no fathers, absent fathers or abusive fathers. Boys need a male figure-head as I am sure you are aware of. His father is abusive so keep him away from your son. Explain to your son that "dad is sick and until he wants help he won't get well." NEVER knock down your son's father even if the father deserves it. Always remember that you are his mom to him and "dad is dad" no matter how abusive he may be. You'll lose if you down his father because young kids just don't see the bad side of some parents or other people and have to experience it or grow older to understand it. Get him into some sort of sports with a good coach (someone to look up too.) Try to attend as many games as you can. He needs interaction with males and a role-model to look up too (that could be the coach.) The other route you could go (you didn't say how old your son is) but if he's 6 plus, then you can give him some chores around the house (act like the wounded sparrow once in awhile) and let your son realize you count on him too. Young men are simply part boy/part man and it can be a frustrating time for them.
Is lucius malfoy an abusive father?
I wouldn't say he's really abusive. You'd have to ask Rowling that. I don't recall reading anything saying he was abusive to Draco. I doubt he was abusive to him. He spoiled Draco rotten and his son practically worships Lucius. Draco always talks about Lucius and wants to grow up like him. That doesn't sound like the son of an abusive parent. If he was, he'd either be really withdrawn or plain sadistic. Lucius had expectations for his son, and groomed him to be a proper young man. In a nutshell he was hard on him but he did spoil him. :)

You are 17 and a half years old can you be forced to talk to your father?
If your father is still verbally abusive to you as an adult should you allow your son to stay with his grandfather for the weekend?
Why would anyone leave a child with someone who is verbally abusive? No. Your son should not see you being spoken to disrespectfully by a close family member as it will affect his attitudes as he grows up. You don't need the upset of it either. I think your father should be kept away from your son until he learns to behave like a reasonable adult.

Asked in Court Procedure
Does my 16 year old son have to visit his father from a previos court order when he does not want to go. while we are pending are 5th court visitation hearing does he have to go?
yes, if his father isn't abusive then there isn't a reason in haulting his visitation rights. Your son is 16 years old and should be able to see both sides of the story. Let him make judgments based on his own experiences, and don't try and shelter him from an issue that is between you and your sons father. Unless it is dangerously bad, your son needs both the mother and father figure in his life. If his father does drugs or is abusive then it is understandable. Otherwise, if your sons father is trying to see his son to be his father you shouldn't under any circumstances stop father-son involvement. It promotes healthy relationships that'll last him a lifetime. Technically he does have to go if it is court ordered unless in special circumstances where it isn't safe to let him do so. Don't become a crazy person if all that is happening is a father trying to interact with his son.
Is your boyfriend mentally abusing your son when is tells him he doesnot like him and doesnot care what happens to him and says he cannot live with you now your son is living with friends?
* It's not uncommon for sons to protect their mothers and it appears your son does not want his father replaced by your boyfriend and thus, there is a war going on between you boyfriend and your son. Your boyfriend may be taking your attention away from your son, or, your boyfriend may be a verbally abusive person at heart. You must put your son before your boyfriend and talk to him and ask why he doesn't like your boyfriend. Sometimes children are more aware of what an adult really is (not good) than the adult involved with them (in this case you.) It appears tempers are flying and each are out of control. Talk to your son and communicate with him and listen well to why he doesn't like your boyfriend. If there is no real reason other than the fact your son tells you your boyfriend is not his father then discuss your feelings openly with your son.
Asked in Abusive Families
If your sons father abused you and now he abuses you what should you do?
* Your son has learned the abusive behavior from his father by watching and listening and seeing how your husband has treated you. Long ago you should have told your son that it is wrong to be verbally nasty or physically harmful towards a women. You did not give the age of your son and if he is a minor then you can seek help through counseling or Child Aid. If your son is no longer a minor then seek legal advice and have a restraining order put against him and if this doesn't work then have the strength to phone the police and have your son taken away in handcuffs and then press charges against him. As much as this will hurt you it may help to get your son the psychological help he needs so he doesn't continue to follow in the footsteps of his abusive father.
