"I read somewhere that verbal / emotional abuse is like hammering nails into a fence. You can remove the nails, you can try and paint over the fence, but the scars are still there. I have been doing a LOT of self help reading over the last year (a lot of the recommendations from this site) and it has strengthened me to realise I don't want my daughter growing up the same way I did."
