Another person who goes by u/i_am_soooo_screwed additionally identified how dangerous the husband’s actions have been.
“If he was healthy minded, he would see the effects that his mother’s comments have on his daughter’s feelings and — since he has empathy and cares — would put his daughter first.”
“But he doesn’t give enough of a shit for your feelings or his daughter’s, hence the not listening, not caring, and perpetuating the verbal abuse of his daughter. And this IS verbal abuse. It’s low self esteem created by a thousand cuts.”
