Most parents want to have a close, respectful and caring relationship with their adolescent. It is very confronting and stressful to acknowledge that they are abusive and violent. The impact of adolescent violence in the home on parents is:
feeling ‘unsafe’ in your own home
worrying about him being physically abusive and violent.
feeling alone and isolated
feeling embarrassed about not being able to stop the abuse and violence
feeling desperate about what to do
not knowing where to turn to for help.
feeling you are alone in what is happening at home
feeling too ashamed to tell anyone what is happening.
Grief and loss
If you answered yes you may be experiencing adolescent violence in the home. Get support.
