About the Book

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. Here, a counselor reveals how abusers interact with and manipulate children-and how mothers can help their children recover from the trauma of witnessing abuse.

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
