DCS or tell a teacher or guidance counselor-who are obligated by law to report it.

Not sure. Get her out of the house first. Make a decision about who to call at another time. Get her out of the house.

Also, if you know she is being abused, you are somewhat obligated to call DCS or the police.

DCS won't do shit. Tell her to hit the sorry ass sunnabiatch back and maybe it will send a clear message. If she gets arrested she might get a better place to go to. He is no man if he thinks it's OK to hit a female child. If he thinks its OK then he will have no problem of her standing up to him!
