Many abused children cling to the hope that growing up will bring escape and freedom from their abusive homes. But the personality formed in the environment of coercive control and abuse does not conform to adult life. The survivor is left with fundamental problems in trust, autonomy, and initiative. The Center for Disease Control found that children who witness abuse are at greater risk of: alcohol and substance abuse; health conditions like cancer, depression, and diabetes; poor performance in school; and an early death. Children who grow up around domestic violence also believe it is normal, and often repeat the cycle of violence in their own adult lives. Subscribe to the podcast.

And then there is the extreme case of the Turpin’s in Southern California who severely abused and traumatized their 13 children. They were found captive in the family home, with some of them shackled to the beds even. This story made worldwide headlines; the parents will spend the rest of their lives in jail; and the children will never be normal – how could they be?

Abuse comes in many sizes and shapes. There is no fine line here – the lines are indeed blurry. What constitutes abuse?…is always the elephant in the room. Should you report unusual circumstances when you see them? Does this fall under the premise of see something – say something? Then again…what about the families that are tormented from falsified claims? It’s a difficult topic, but good news is we have Co-hosts Sgt. Betsy Smith, Linda Martinelli and DrFaye Wilson here.
