One of 4 children, now all adult. Father physically violent and verbally abusive to children, also very very protective of mother, expected us to be as well. Her needs always priorised. Never ever discussed: elephant-in-the-corner syndrome! My youngest sister suffered most and is now in quite a bad state mentally (in her early 40's). Should I tackle my parents, with whom I now have a stable relationship, explain how she feels and suggest they aplogise? They are now in their 80's, father still totally protective and mother very dependent.
