LW1 - There are no words for a mother like this one.

LW2 - There are precarious places around the house and yard where these ornaments might be placed - for safe keeping, you know.

LW1: I think RACE is right that mom knew all about this while it was happening and is now acting this way to deflect from herself.
Poor daughter...
Yeah, I think that's very likely the case.

Since the dad is not mentioned in the present, I am assuming that he is either dead or otherwise out of the picture.
My personal hunch is that the mom knew of the abuse but kept quite, but now that the daughter opened up to her, she is blabbing it all over creation to create the image that she never knew about it. And her ignoring her daughters request to shut up about it, only re-enforces that thought.

Yep, and if someone told me she'd told them about it, I'd probably mutter "too bad she didn't say something when it was happening". If they ask did she know, I'd shrug, and say, "I have no proof of that, but....." add another shrug.
In no time any sympathy mom is getting would dry up like a tear drop in Death Valley in the middle of July.

I think I would think how inappropriate it is that she's sharing such incredibly personal and painful information about her *child* with someone who isn't a closest of close friends. It's messed up.
