Our expert says:
Good for you for calling POWA urgently.Remind her that beyond any possible doubt she did NOTHING whatsoever to deserve such a beating, and that NOBODY ever deserves that. You won't be able to persuade her husband to seek help. I would consider reporting the situation to the Child Welfare authorities as likely to be damaging to the child, and let them explore the matter. Encourage her to let you call the police, and to lay criminal charges against the brute. And encourage her, if she doesn't have the heart to do that, then to keep in contact with POWA, and to see someone there for counselling, maybe a support group.
