This Comment examines the currently available remedies for battered parents in California. The author suggests that the legal system has been slow to acknowledge the growing trend of parental abuse and slower still to provide adequate remedies for these parents. The author provides a survey of the potential remedies for battered parents in California and discusses the inherent problems in each. The author concludes with suggestions for more effective remedies, proposing mandatory family counseling or a restructuring of the methods for court processing of abusive children.
