why is hitting a child NOT child abuse
Hi, got some serious problems and don't know what do to. My wife hits the kids but doesn't leave any bruses. Our counseler says unless there is bruses he can't report it. She did leave bruses once and that got reported. I want to leave but my counselor said there is no way I would get 100% custody of the kids because she has gone on vacation with them and has had good times. This morning she hit my 12 year old and 7 year, never in front of me, I was going to the bathroom. I know if I call my counselor what he will say, how do I make this stop, how do I protect my kids. She has been in counseling for 17 years and it really hasn't helped. Now she won't go, and I go just to try to keep from cracking. Should I call a lawyer, the cops??? My son was crying because his head hurt this morning from headache he got after she slapped his head.
