Abuse never gets better without counseling for the abuser and the abused. Abuse is a pattern that must be broken or destroy lives. Money is just a way of controlling the abused by the abusing party. Abusers learn the abused’s fears and then use them.

Letter My Daughter is Abused. How Can I Help Her?
Dear Dr. Luv,
My daughter went back to her husband in the middle of their divorce. He was verbally abusive and sometimes "push" happy. $2000 later there she was with the "father " of her baby, who was previously allowed only restricted visitation, now back together, as one happy family.
She now has 2 children, 17 months apart.
The stuff never ends, and she says she is leaving, but is afraid because she has no $$$. They are in debt up to their necks. He buys stuff all the time, keeps the checkbook, and now she wants out.
Being her mom, and watching this, I know she has to be the one to do it. Any suggestions for me on what to say to her???
Thank you. Concerned Mom
