Is this related to the post on the child forum in which your dad was stalking you at the mall and was doing  similar things?  I'm very confused.  That story was different but similar at the same time.

Okay----  just a lot going on in your life with your family and friends . . . anyway, she gave you the answer, really.  She says that it is not that bad and she can't leave.  While I understand why you would  want to rescue her, she has to want to.  Yes, if true----  it does sound terrible.  But unless she is trying to escape, there isn't much you can do but listen.  If you see anything happening to your kids, call child services or the authorities.  That would be double abuse----  a father committing the act and a mother choosing to subject her kids to that kind of atmosphere.  

As to your question about your father, no.  I wouldn't allow my child to see my mentally ill father that was threatening me.  good luck

The abuse/ double abuse is directed towards your friend. YOU must call the authorities if the children are involved in any way on both your friend and her husband.   If you see a scratch, bump or bruise----  if you notice any emotional problems, etc.----  then both of these parents have created an unfit enviroment for their children.  While your friend chooses this life-----  she is subjecting her innocent children to witnessing this violence.  That is very unhealthy for THEM (let alone your friend.)  There is a bigger picture here which is the children.  

So, I am not refering to you----  but that if these children are being harmed, that you must act on it if their mother is unwilling.
Good luck.  It would be hard to see your friend making such a painful choice for all involved.

And don't get me wrong.   I do have sympathy for battered and abused women.  I just don't think you will be able to help her unless she is willing.
