Domestic Violence

If one of your parents is abusive (hurts other people in your home emotionally, physically, or in any other way) this is domestic abuse, or domestic violence.

Domestic abuse or violence can happen in any family and in all kinds of homes. Even if the violence is not aimed at you, you can get hurt too.

You might be in the same room, or in the room next door when the violence happens. Or the violence or abuse might also be aimed at you. This can be extremely upsetting and scary. But you’re not alone. Please call Childline if you feel alone and scared.
