Why is verbal abuse not considered more detrimental than physical abuse. Yes, neither is acceptable, but most verbal abuse, expecially, verbally violent abuse can last a lifetime. My ex-husband verbally abused me and our youngest and I have been away from him for 7 years and he is still at it, he just got my boyfriend of three years to leave me and my kids to hate me and want nothing to do with me. he got my youngest to beleive my bf put a knife to her. She self-cuts, I have had her in counsiling and my ex refuses to take her on his weeks. My bf I KNOW FOR A FACT he would never do that he loves my kids. everytime my kids would come home to me they ask my mom questions, the last one my kids asked my mom if I was on drugs. he always called my youngest an idiot and stupid and retarded. She is a very healthy little girl and very active, so what if she is a little clumsy, she is not an idiot. When she tried to self-cut at his house, he told me he called her a baby. How do you get anyone to see that verbal abuse can wreck a person and can for life. That is one main reason why I left the SOB. How can you get the courts to see this? After what had just happened, I don't want my kids back now, I do not want to see them. As long as they are with him, he has control of their little heads and I am fighting a losing battle and in the meantime I feel like I am going crazy. Right now, temporarily, they need foster care or something. How can I get this to end?
