How to Help a Parent in an Abusive Relationship

Sep 18, 2014

When abuse is happening in a relationship, it can affect whole families - including children who are witnesses to the abuse and violence. 

Watching your parent deal with an abusive relationship is extremely tough and can cause a range of emotions, like resentment, guilt, fear, grief, and anger. It can be especially difficult if you are still living at home or have younger siblings still living at home. Having feelings of love and attachment to our parents is very normal, even if one of them is abusive in some way. If you feel like something isn’t right in your family, but you also have those feelings at the same time, the situation can become confusing, complicated, or overwhelming.
