Mine is such a jerk. She treats my husband like crap and talks to him like he's a dog. Every time he talks to her on the phone she berates him about something and he ends up feeling horrible. He usually wont' tell me what she says b/c he knows it makes me so upset but I can just tell he feels like he's about a foot tall. I can't stand that she does this. I just want him to stop calling her and stop answering her calls and just go through life without her. It is not a healthy relationship in any form.
he needs to make that choice. all you can do is support him through the path. i think when a person alllows a parent to abuse them, there are underlying issues. obviously guilt, low self esteem etc are there....
help him become stronger so he doesnt need to be validated by her would help. i think he is still seeking her apporval. once he lets go of that need, he will be able to build better barriers to her abuse.....
Hugs! It really stinks to watch someone we love get hurt. What she is doing is definately wrong. Unfortunately, there isn't much you can do about the situation other than love and support him. He's got to decide for himself that he's had enough of her abuse and take some sort of action, whether it be speaking up, cutting contact off, etc. He's got to do it for himself. It must be a difficult thing, because your parents are the people that are supposed to love you no matter what, and you only get 1 mom and 1 dad. I hope the situation gets better. BIG HUGS!!
