Intervening with Abusive Mothers in Public
Observing abusive situations in public between a mother and child leaves many parents questioning how they could have intervened in the best interest of the child. Mothers who are overwhelmed and have no support or respite alternatives may require an expression of sympathy to initiate self-control.
