I am the classic product of the 'broken home'. However, as the 'Innocent Bystander' makes clear, my home was not merely broken, it was destroyed. Once my mother threatened suicide if my father should leave, he recruited me and my sister to make my mother's life a living hell. That way, SHE would leave and he would be free to pursue another man's wife. My sister and I were too young to know better. This was the very least of his sins. Children should not be involved in adult games.

An innocent bystander is usually one who bears witness to some horrific event the human psyche` cannot bear. Some bystanders arrive at such events through an accident of birth. What intervention can we offer them? Are they doomed to a life of paranoia and guilt, or of inadequacy and shame? The events here are quoted verbatim. Only the names have been changed to protect the survivors
