    my sister is a victim of verbal domestic abuse and refuses to let go of the toxic relationship due to her 5-YO kid (she needs her dad she says). her husband goes days on end without speaking to her except for shouting and subjecting her and her family to emotional torment. currently one of these phases is going on and i fear he might move them to a different city for his sadistic pleasure in which case my sister would need to quit her job. i fear for the emotional and physical well- being of her and and my entire family. i am also very close to her and my niece and i am unable to concentrate on my daily routine due to the emotional turmoil, waiting for the bomb to drop.

    Dear harry:

    Your sister told you that her five year old child “needs her dad”.

    Do you know what she means by it, that is: does she think that her child needs the “shouting.. emotional torment.. emotional turmoil” that is happening in the child’s home?

    Dear Harry,

    Unfortunately for you, it is your sister who has to deal with her husband and she will not leave him until she is ready to.  This situation is not going to be good for the child.  What makes you think he is going to move them away?  Have you spoken to this man about your concerns or his behavior.  Have you personally witnessed his behavior or are you going on what your sister has told you.  Not speaking to someone for days on end is psychological abuse and moving someone away from their family is another weapon that an abuser uses.  Do you think your sister would actually go?
