View Full Version : Battered Mothers/Protective Parents - Resources Thread

07-27-2011, 06:17 AM
I have met many other battered mothers and protective parents on this board. I'm hoping to start this thread so that we can share resources to help others experiencing domestic violence, child abuse, coparenting with an abuser, litigating with an abuser, and the trauma that comes with those experiences.

I've also been on the threads here for cases where these moms and/or their children had tragic outcomes. I'm starting a separate thread where we can discuss the similarities in those cases, or our own experiences, or brainstorm ways to improve public awareness on what a large and real problem domestic violence remains even after leaving a relationship, especially when children are involved.

Let's just keep this thread to Resource Info and links only so that if someone needs further information/support they can find it easily.

The Leadership Council has a lot of excellent information and resources:


DV Leap can help with cases on the appellate level and also has some great links. It's a good resource to stay on top of the latest legal news and opinions on DV.

Great new resource that will be useful for some protective parents...a FB page for those coparenting with narcissists. Over 4,000 members, very active, lots of advice from other parents (mostly moms).
