This is so messed up, especially because I know when I was deep in my mother's abuse I would have denied her actions up and down and sworn she was the greatest mother in the world because I was so desperate for her to love me. Of course these kids don't know they're being abused. They're getting what they think they want.

Same. I think the psychological term is "emeshment." Can't remember.
