So, what can any of us learn from Mini’s tragic past?
I have heard so many battered women say that they stayed on in abusive marriages for the sake of their children… so that their children had a normal life. Raising children in an abusive home is unhealthy and as far from normal as Alaska is from Shanghai! A violent father is not a role model for a son or a daughter. Similarly, a mother who takes that abuse silently is a horrible example as well! Stop using your children as an excuse and do the right thing. Take them away from that abusive situation because abusive men not only hit their wives, they also tend to hit their children.
