Are there often arguments between adults going on at your home?
Do they make you angry or upset?
Everyone has arguments, but this becomes domestic abuse when one-person tries to control another, by hurting or bullying them.
Domestic abuse isn’t just about hurting someone physically, it can also be hurting someone emotionally. For example, if one parent tries to control how all the money is spend regardless of who earnt it. Or if every day one parent tries to control who everyone can see, or what they can do.
Domestic abuse doesn’t just happen to adults. It can happen in young people’s relationships too.
