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. Whether it's physical or 'just' emotional abuse, whether it's aimed at them or you, whether they see or hear it, your kids need you.
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
