    As a former elementary education teacher turned pediatric regist

    As a former elementary education teacher turned pediatric registered nurse, I have seen cases of child abuse and neglect...
    this is not one of them. This is a guy who is angry because his wife left him for another man and won custody of the three children.
    He writes this book to "nit pick" at everything that goes on in his ex wife's household.  I actually find it shameful that he compares 
    his situation with true cases of child abuse. i agree with the reviewer below who said that he was adding more stress on the children
    by feeding into everything that was said. I will go a step further to say that I believe he was probably putting thoughts into their head also.

    Help, I don't want to live here anymore

    I would have to say that Brian may have added to his children's stress level by buying into every single detail of their homelife as undesirable. I found the ham sandwich incident in particular to be revealing. There is nothing wrong with expecting a child to eat what is in front of them without argument. In addition I believe he deliberately fostered a "them against us" mentality in his anguish and helplessness. On the other hand the ex is obviously unstable, selfish and weak, and the boyfriend a rough sort. I'm really glad Brian got custody back.
