An abuser will try everything to keep the child cooperative. Emotional, physical abuse, even positive reinforcement (such as telling the child they are the only one who loves them, etc.).


Sometimes a child is so beat down and defeated that when they grow up they chose a spouse who essentially treats them the way the abuser did.


I hope the subject of your question is getting some good counseling.
