I remember right after mom died that Aunt Sharon told me that the way dad used to hit me made the family sick. She said "It was like he had to hit you every other day just so everybody would know who was boss". The last time my parents separated, not hitting the kids anymore was one of my mom's preconditions for getting back together.

I was 2 or 3 when this started. I was 25 when I learned this. My relationship to this memory is complex.
