Its not a question of turning your back on him, but on this sort of behaviour, making it very clear that there is no reasonable justification for it. If he is going to harrass her and the child again, she should get a court interdict forbidding him from doing so, and he would be arrested if he tried it again. I wonder if he had been drinking heavily at the time. You canot force effective treatment on him. But if there is a restraining order, then she should be encouraged to call the police and have him arrested. Maybe some visits to jail ( because breaking a restraining order amounts to contempt of court ) may help him to realize that he DOES have a problem needing assessment and tratment. Let him discover that he is not untouchable
