I think my daughter might be in an abusive relationship - but if I ask her she avoids/denies the issues. Any advice?
"I know this isn’t technology based but as someone who spent my entire teenage years in abusive relationships I find it important to share. I just opened up the last few years to my dad about my sons biological dad who I dated on and off for 4 years starting at age 16. Even when others saw the emotional and psychological abuse I couldn’t. I couldn’t talk about it. It must have been my fault. If he cheated on me it was because I wasn’t being a good enough girlfriend.
This usually is especially true in kids who come from broken homes or have gone through childhood trauma.
I constantly try to teach my children what true relationships look like even with their friends.
