I feel compelled to write to you to thank you for the December 16 issue of the Sentinel, "Standing up to abusive behavior."

I grew up witnessing my parents' arguments in which my dad routinely beat up my mother. It was scary and incomprehensible to me as a child. On the outside, our family appeared to be rather affluent, well groomed, and polite. We looked like regular, middle-class Americans living in the suburbs. To maintain this facade, my mother insisted I never tell anyone about their fights, and I never did.
