My daughter and I have had a difficult relationship since I left her father ten years ago. My poor kids who are now 16 and 19 have witnessed him abuse me until I took them and left ten years ago. He never physically abused them but seeing him abuse me has left a lasting impression to say the least. My daughter was very angry at me for leaving him alone one night while he was at anger management I took my kids and left. The four of us would be dead by his hands if I had not made the escape when I did. She instantly took his place of abusing me.
