9-Year-Old Stabs Mom’s Attacker

In Wisconsin, a 9-year-old girl stabbed her mother’s knife-wielding ex boyfriend in the back after he threatened to slit her mother’s throat.

Jason M. Fields, 27, was strangling his ex-girlfriend and holding a knife to her throat inside her apartment when the woman’s daughter grabbed a kitchen knife and plunged it into Fields’ back.

Police had been called to the house just hours earlier after Fields smashed the woman’s car windshield. But cops left after Fields gave her cash for the damages and said he would leave.

This was the 2nd incident the little girl stabbed Fields. 2 years earlier she stabbed him while he was attacking her mom.

Ok mommies, if you are in a violent relationship, GET OUT please.

If you don’t have the courage or strength to do it for yourself, do it for the safety of your children. Our kids didn’t ask to be here, and IT IS NOT their job to protect us. It is our responsibility to advocate and protect our children.

Domestic abuse is not an easy situation, but YOU MUST protect your children and their future. There are a lot of resources available to help ensure your family’s safety and even a fresh start.

Help for abused and battered women: Making the decision to leave

As you face the decision to either end the abusive relationship or try to save it, keep the following things in mind:

  • If you’re hoping your abusive partner will change… The abuse will probably happen again. Abusers have deep emotional and psychological problems. While change is not impossible, it isn’t quick or easy. And change can only happen once your abuser takes full responsibility for his behavior, seeks professional treatment, and stops blaming you, his unhappy childhood, stress, work, his drinking, or his temper.
  • If you believe you can help your abuser… It’s only natural that you want to help your partner. You may think you’re the only one who understands him or that it’s your responsibility to fix his problems. But the truth is that by staying and accepting repeated abuse, you’re reinforcing and enabling the abusive behavior. Instead of helping your abuser, you’re perpetuating the problem.
  • If your partner has promised to stop the abuse… When facing consequences, abusers often plead for another chance, beg for forgiveness, and promise to change. They may even mean what they say in the moment, but their true goal is to stay in control and keep you from leaving. But most of the time, they quickly return to their abusive behavior once they’ve been forgiven and they’re no longer worried that you’ll leave.
  • If your partner is in counseling or a program for batterers… Even if your partner is in counseling, there is no guarantee that he’ll change. Many abusers who go through counseling continue to be violent, abusive, and controlling. If your partner has stopped minimizing the problem or making excuses, that’s a good sign. But you still need to make your decision based on who he is now, not the man you hope he will become.
  • If you’re worried about what will happen if you leave... You may be afraid of what your abusive partner will do, where you’ll go, or how you’ll support yourself or your children. But don’t let fear of the unknown keep you in a dangerous, unhealthy situation.

If you are being abused, remember:

  • You are not to blame for being battered or mistreated.
  • You are not the cause of your partner’s abusive behavior.
  • You deserve to be treated with respect.
  • You deserve a safe and happy life.
  • Your children deserve a safe and happy life.
  • You are not alone. There are people waiting to help.
