Overview

The Family Man book is the ultimate guide and authority that provides solutions to permanently eradicate domestic violence, child abuse, and bullying. Domestic violence expert and former domestic violence offender A.W. Burgess provides practical solutions to an issue that has plagued households and relationships since the beginning of time. The Family Man is about the life and systemic making, breaking, and restoration of a domestic violence offender and bully while addressing the impact of child abuse; unhealthy environments children are exposed to that consequentially harm innocent individuals; perpetual cycles of violence and abuse; and the destruction of legacies and the community they reside. This how-to heal book is not designed to call offenders, abusers, and bullies out, but instead, it was made to lovingly call them in to proactively move forward to get the mental health solutions that will lead to living a more fulfilled life, while reducing recidivism and divorce. Burgess says he is calling them in to get help not as a request, but as a requirement. He says that if he changed any type of abuser will change if they commit their lives to mental wellness and the changes one has to make to keep living a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

Author A.W. Burgess is the respectful reply to the #Me Too & Time’s Up movement providing solutions to proactively keep offenders, abusers, and bullies fully accountable & aware of their behavior! Burgess is known as "The Family Man™" because he has been married for nearly 30 years and is a father of 4. He is requiring violent offenders, child abusers, and bullies to submit to their ignorance because what they do not know will hurt others and themselves! Batterers, abusers, and bullies are in our homes, churches, schools, workplaces, synagogues, hotels, elevators, entertainment venues of art, music concerts, movie theaters, yoga spas, bars, clubs, restaurants, military bases, sporting events, casinos, parks, and hospitals. As an abuser, Burgess believes one must proactively take control with an aggressive step forward towards a solution or your problems will be stuck in neutral going nowhere, or worse, will be taking many steps in reverse, leading to more significant losses, pain, and more traumatic experiences for ALL mankind!

This brutally honest auto-biopic of A.W. Burgess explores how Burgess was not born a monster but made a monster. He discusses in intimate detail how his former childhood girlfriend and then his wife fell in love with him and not his violence, abuse, and bullying! He emphatically says his greatest regret in life was taking too long to get help for his violent behavior, as well as letting someone know family members were harming him as a child. His ignorance, secrets and silence led to his violence towards others and himself. He paid the price for a crime he never committed as a child and ultimately ended up reciprocating that violence to innocent family members and friends.

His ignorance to his mental health ultimately landed him in a Virginia state penitentiary and psychiatric hospital for the criminally insane where he consequently received the mental health solutions that he could have received without ever going to prison because domestic violence is a preventable issue. As an homage to all victims of violence, Burgess will spend the rest of his life trying to save lives and legacies of victims and victimizers so they do not end up perpetuating and experiencing the incredible pains he has throughout his entire life! Burgess hopes and prays this book becomes a powerful resource that frees any individual struggling with the pain of domestic violence, child abuse, and bullying.
