I am looking for any proof that children find the need to "Protect" their parent of abuse. For example, step-dad is abusive towards mom, and instead of wanting to live with dad in a safe home, they will lie and say things to cover for mom in an attempt to stay with her, feeling the need to protect her. Do you have any previous case references or law to help me with this?? Thank you for your time.
