Stopping Abuse and Neglect

In many societies, there is a cultural taboo against discussing insider information that will embarrass or dishonor a family member, employer, or church leader. Instead of calling abusive behavior wrong, removing ourselves, and holding abusers accountable, we often focus on maintaining an image of well-being or attempt to endlessly self-improve. Too many of us would rather maintain appearances than admit that abusive behavior exists in our relationships. Courageously facing and dealing with the truth, no matter how ugly, is always easier in the long run than living in denial because our decision affects our children. We must be the ones who take action before abuse and neglect impacts the next generation. When we take the necessary steps to stop abuse out of love for our self, the abuser and our children, there is hope and healing possible for everyone.Pin It
