Physical or emotional abuse directed at partners, siblings, children or elders. If anyone in your family is experiencing abuse, please read the following tips. They can help your family cope with violence, recover from the pain of abuse and go on to experience the joy and trust of supportive, happy relationships.
Violence in the home harms everyone in the family. Children are especially vulnerable. When they see violent behavior between family members, or when they're abused themselves, they may grow up to be abusive to their partners or children. As parents it's our responsibility to prevent family violence and this cycle of abuse.
If you're coping with the violence in your home, remember you're not alone. Abusive behavior affects every neighborhood, ethnic background and economic class. No family is immune. But no family should be victimized by violence.
