Is it normal for a child of a verbally abusive father to grow up with the mentality of Honesty Is Not Always If Ever The Best Policy when dealing with authority figures other than his abusive father?

Yes, it is normal with some children who grow up with a verbally abusive father to think that honesty is not always if ever the best police when dealing with authority figures other than his own father because a verbally abusive father has life twisted around in his own mind. A child that is either verbally or physically abused by their father will most likely try to please that father more so than the father. However, there are other children who grow up with verbally abusive fathers who make an extreme effort to be the opposite of their father and when those grown children have children of their own they make sure their children will not have to go through the same thing they went through.

If you are almost 16 can you refuse visitation with your verbally and emotionally abusive father?

You should be able to ask the judge who presided over the divorce, or if there is a caseworker assigned to the family, that would be a better place to start. * A sixteen-year-old does not have that right automatically. Legally, the father still has the right to his visitation time. If a father is emotionally or physically abusive, the mother or an attorney acting on behalf of the child may petition the court for a change in the custoday order. * No, minors are not allowed to make such decisions when there is a visitation order in place. Generally the law does not address issues of alledged emotional or verbal abuse as there is such a wide definition of such behavior. The custodial parent can petition for a change in the visitation rights of the non custodial parent, but rarely will visitation be suspended under the cited circumstances, however, supervised visitation might be an option.

Do you have to let your baby go with her father in order to get child support?

No, but only gatekeeper mother would foster another fatherless child onto society. Besides, he can get access rights on his own. I teach fathers how to. You should let the baby go with its father whether you get child support or not. The other parent has a legal obligation to support their child. You have a state agency, the Department of Revenue that can assist you with this, but unless this is an abusive, or dangerous father, or you are afraid the father will take the baby and leave the State, yes by all means you should share the job of parenting with him without being paid to do so. The child support issue will work itself out, let him be a father. Your child will grow better for it.

When a someone is raised by an emotionally distant relative how does affect her romantic relationships?

It may be that the person being raised will have some troubles with upcoming romantic relationships, as she will probably be unprepared/undereducated for them. Answer If a child is raised by someone who is emotionally distant or "emotionally unavailable" for the child and that child has no other role model or parent who IS emotionally there for them, the child will have trouble later in life with the same issue. He or she could possibly be emotionally distant, not knowing how to express his or her emotions. If someone is emotionally distant there is no closeness or real bonding. The child can possibly have those issues into adulthood.
