I have to agree with what Kmackey 32 and Daffy Duck have said. There is never an acceptable excuse for abuse. You don’t have to take it. That doesn’t mean to say there won’t be a price to pay for standing up for yourself. Pick your battle. Make it one you will win once and for all. Anyone that is brutal enough to abuse, understands brutality. This is harsh, but it’s true. Sometimes the only person that can save you, is you. Dig deep into yourself. You are stronger than you know. Make a stand and never give in. Think about these horrible statistics: The average abused woman leaves her abuser seventeen times before making it away for good, if she lives that long. Children exposed to abuse often grow up to abuse. Love yourself and your child enough to do what you have to do. Get away and stay away, by whatever means are necessary.
