AT, you mean walk away from the relationship with the parents? Not the triad, correct? I know, in the past, there were times when I had to shut my mother out completely in order for her to learn she could not be disrespectful toward me, or lay her judgments on me. However, the OP has the added concern of their threats about child abuse, so it may need to be handled a bit more gingerly.
