Our expert says:
it is not on the whole good for a child to grow up in an abusive relationship, as not only may they experience abuse themselves, but may draw various unhelpful conclusions from witnessing it. From the sound of it, though, your child is probably too young to be affected, though she can pick up the air of emotional tension, hence the crying. Call POWA and discuss your situation with this group that specializes in helping the abused. As NM saysm best of all a child should grow up in a loving environment, even if that is with a single mom, rather than a miserable fuller family.
You need not accept this abuse --- talk with POWA and find a safe way out of it.
