I have a friend/aquaintance who has just revealed to me that her father has been abusive and that she is scared of him. I want to direct her to some reading, and have searched, but cannot find anything pertinent. Help? Courtenay
Even though she may not want to hurt her father.. she needs to let someone of authority know.. because abuse is really hard on someone's mental thoughts.

Thanks Daenerys. She has told a cousnellor, and they havn't done anything yet. I found that odd. I'm working with her to get her family some help, and to get her out of the house, so we'll see. Thanks for the books and info, too, Jacob. Very helpful.
