Curious to know WWYD if anything.
Our house peaks over the fence to our neighbours yard. So we can hear conversations and see into their yard quit clearly- even if we weren't trying. We hear a lot of things from their back deck and driveway.
The family has two kids - mum and boyfriend. From what I can gather the baby is theirs together and the eldest daughter is from a previous relationship.
The parents fight a lot. He yells horrible abuse at her and slams the door etc. I have seen him yank the baby from her arms. I have also seen him chase the older daughter around the yard threatening to kick her and also yielding a broom handle all the while yelling expletives and being generally a horrible person. These episodes usually erupt from small mishaps- ie she accidentally bumped the baby when playing etc.
He is a horrible excuse for a man. I can't begin to understand the details of why she is still with him.
I am unsure if there is anything I can do to help. Part of me thinks it's not my place to do anything. But it also upsets me that these poor children are living amongst such horrific verbal abuse and threatening behaviour.
