Thread Name: Suspect Physical Abuse--What to do?
Subject: RE: Suspect Physical Abuse--What to do?
So far I am with Sharon. It is more complex because it is a job situation, but to molly-coddle someone in this situation only infantilizes them. As a grown woman, obviously able to support herself, she has some moral choices to make. Especially since she is in a position of leadership. She doesn't have to wait until her self esteem blossoms. She could be pregnant by then. Let her know you have strong suspicions of what is going on and if it is going on, she needs to get out of the situation. "Oh but I love him (her)". "Oh but he is not like this except when he has been drinking." So? mg
