Looking back, Susan's son says he knows that the abuse was wrong. He admits to being angry with his father, but he has not spoken to him since his incarceration.

Oprah: Would you ever be in communication with him, do you think?

Older Son: Yeah, I will. I'll be paying him a visit. …

Oprah: And what do you want to say to him?

Older Son: I want to say a lot of things that I'd rather not say in front of you.

Oprah: What do you think it did to you to see your father behave that way on a regular basis? What do you think?

Older Son: I think it made me angry and quick to fight—like not hit girls, but quick to fight guys on the street or something like that.

Oprah: Have you been able to deal with that or talk about that to someone?

Older Son: It's a lot better now. I know how to control it more.
