Psychological abuse of children

I can really recommend this!

Richard Dawkins’ interview of Jill Mytton has just been released. It is the full uncut video made for the TV series “root of all Evil. I discussed this before in Psychological and religious abuse of children. The subjects discussed in the interview are extremely important so I am very pleased the interview is now available free and on line.

While Mytton is a therapist specialising in the  problems suffered by adults who have escaped from religious cults, and those suffering from religious abuse as children, her discussion is relevant to the problem of psychological abuse of children in general.

  1. I remember the first time I saw this interview. How could loving parents do that to their children? Shameful.

    I’ve always liked George Carlin’s take on hell, torture and eternal damnation…

  4. Men who threaten to take away the kids are engaging in post separation violence. It is common for batterers to threaten to take children away from the battered woman by proving her to be an unfit mother. For this reason, some lawyers advise women not to tell courts or mediators about child abuse or domestic abuse because, by doing so, they risk losing custody to the alleged abuser!
