My mother is the abuser in my life. Always has been for as long as I can remember. She acts this way towards myself, my brother, and our dad (and they are still married).

How can I avoid becoming like her? The statistics that say that you become your same-sex parent freak me out. I do NOT want to be like that. How can get her to not emotionally abuse my son when she doesn't think she does anything wrong?
