Dating emotionally abusive man
But never before have I seen such a detailed account, written by a mother herself, of emotional abuse.
The most troubling thing to me is that not only did this mother fail to see what she was doing, but I believe she is representative of most mothers who are convinced their teenagers are growing up in "loving, supportive" families.
