Domestic Violence and Abuse – Its Effects on Children

Domestic abuse is when a grown-up threatens, bullies or hurts another adult in the family. Sometimes it’s called domestic violence and it can happen in any family. It can be very hard to deal with but remember that it is never your fault. If you are experiencing domestic abuse or are worried about a friend who might be, talk to an adult you trust. If you feel like you cannot talk to anyone, you can always ring Childline on their freephone number, or use their one to one chat service. Remember, you are not alone.
If someone deliberately hurts or injures you or another person, it’s physical abuse. you might be told that it’s your fault or that they are punishing you, but nothing makes it okay for someone to hurt you. Abuse is never your fault. This webpage contains information on physical abuse including how physical abuse can affect you, why are you being physically abused and information on telling someone else.
