          “I guess there’s this part of me that incorrectly believes that the yelling doesn’t hurt, even though I know that’s very wrong,” Kevin responds, adding, “We’ve watched you enough to know that the verbal abuse is just as bad as the physical abuse.”

          “It makes me change my behaviors because I never want to hear that again,” says Alethea, adding, “And what I’ve found is; changing my behaviors hasn’t helped at all.”
