When people hear emotional abuse they are quick to think man/woman dynamic but do you know parents emotionally abuse their kids too
You hear how some parents talk down on their children, the harsh words used to correct them, magnifying their weakness and in some cases
The woman also out of bitterness of the father leaving takes her anger out on the children words like “you are useless like your father” …
Some of us were raised in hostile homes, mummy and daddy’s mood determined the general mood in the house
When they fight you dare not come of your room or ask for anything, sometimes you blame yourself for why your parents hate each other
They won’t separate because of what the society would say but the children go thru hell and endure the result of the bad choices they made
That child now grows up and if help is not given goes on to be abusive in his own relationship too. It’s a Cycle we must break
I know of a man who doesn’t take care of his own son cos in his words “she trapped me”. Like that’s your child!!!!!”
