Post Courier just blames men and tells lies. The National is becoming family oriented and gives blame to men and women.

The National 30 January 2017

We did some reading on domestic violence and want to share what we came across. Abusers use a variety of tactics to manipulate you and exert their power.

DOMINANCE: Abusive individuals need to feel in charge of a relationship. They will make decisions for you and your family, tell you what to do and expect you to obey without question. 

Your abuser may treat you like a servant, child or even his or her possession.

HUMILIATION: An abuser will do everything he or she can to make you feel bad about yourself and defective in some way. 

After all, if you believe you are worthless and that no one else wants you, you are less likely to leave.

Insults, name-calling, shaming, and public put-downs are all weapons of abuse designed to erode  your self-esteem and make you feel powerless.

ISOLATION: In order to increase your dependence on him or her, an abusive partner will cut you off from the outside world. 

He or she will keep you from seeing family or friends or even prevent you from going to work or school. 

You may have to ask permission to do anything, go anywhere or see anyone.
