We’ve heard some men are abusive. What about an abusive wife, and/or an abusive mother-in-law (against her son-in-law)? If you happened to have an abusive spouse and you are a man and the father of your children, you might face some hurdle to help your family out of this.
According to latest research, there is an unfortunate and drastic “service gap” for male victims of abuse compared to female victims of partner abuse. Among 557 government-funded residential facilities for victims of crime in Canada, only 24 reported being mandated to also serve men in addition to women. This is according to the latest report in Canadian residential facilities for victims of abuse. A domestic violence shelter for men (and his children), for instance, is something that’s really needed but never heard of.
Abusive wife tends to give you an abusive mother-in-law?
It is never okay for a parent or in-law to be abusive towards their child or their spouse. If you are experiencing abuse from your mother-in-law or if you are concerned about your children being exposed to abuse, it is important to seek help and support.
One option is to speak with a trusted friend or family member about what is happening. You can also seek support from a therapist or counselor, who can provide you with a safe and confidential space to discuss your experiences and help you develop coping strategies.
If you are in immediate danger, it is important to call the police for help. In some cases, it may also be necessary to seek a restraining order to protect yourself and your children from further abuse. It is also important to remember that you have options when it comes to your divorce. If you feel that the divorce is unfair, you may want to speak with an attorney who can advise you on your legal rights and options.
Impact of an Abusive Wife to your children
There is a wealth of research on the negative effects of family violence on children. Exposure to abuse, whether it is physical, emotional, or verbal, can have serious and long-lasting consequences for children. It can lead to a range of physical and mental health problems, including depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Children who witness or experience abuse may also have difficulty forming healthy relationships later in life, and may be more likely to engage in risky behaviors.
If you are concerned about the impact of family violence on your children, it is important to seek help and support. This can include speaking with a therapist or counselor, who can provide you and your children with the support and guidance you need to cope with the situation. In some cases, it may also be necessary to involve child protective services or the police to ensure the safety and well-being of your children.
If you are experiencing abuse from your wife or mother-in-law or are concerned about your children being exposed to abuse, it is important to remember that you are not alone and that there are resources available to help you.
