See full description
Written by a therapist who specializes in abusive men, this guide reveals how abusers interact with and manipulate children--and how mothers can help their children recover from the trauma of witnessing abuse.

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

"A must-read for every mother who has been abused...it offers the knowledge women need to protect their children and help them heal."--William S. Pollack, Ph.D., author of the national bestseller Real Boys
