Domestic Violence/Nephew abusing my parents


scared for my parents wrote at 2015-01-22 21:17:37
I have a similar situation in my parents home only it's my nephew (their grandson)he's a heroin addict. There is nothing anyone can do until he hurts them & we see it. They protect him & they have pretty much gone bankrupt because of him. Hard to watch...we (my brothers & I) check on them often & he knows we're on to him but, until they have had enough or are dead. Nothing the police can do...crazy system huh? They have told us they are afraid but, "he has no where to go"

I am able to answer questions with regard to problems that result from emotional abuse or physical abuse in both dating and marriage relationships. Having been in an abusive relationship for many years, I know first hand the feelings, the questions and the doubts we go through as we try to make decisions about our lives. Often victims of abuse have deep faith based concerns regarding staying in these kinds of relationships which I am able to address as well.


My background started as a victim of an emotionally abusive relationship as well as having family members who were victims of violence and physical abuse. I have gone on to become a professional counselor and I work with abused women.
