Domestic Violence

A recent NSPCC survey showed that a quarter of girls and 18 per cent of boys have experienced some sort of physical violence in a relationship from their partner.

Abuse in teen relationships doesn’t just cover physical violence. Other examples of this type of abuse include:

  • pressuring a partner into having sex
  • controlling behaviour
  • unnecessary jealousy or anger

Remember that abuse in a relationship is never okay. Everyone deserves to be treated with respect from their partner.

The 'This is Abuse' website has more information about:

  • what behaviour counts as abuse
  • how to recognise the signs of abuse
  • the organisations who can help you if you’re being abused by your partner

Domestic violence can effect any one of any age, sex, religion etc.  It is the belief of Full Stop 2 Bullying that Domestic Violence is just another version of bullying.  To stop it the principles are the same :

  • Tell someone
  • Keep a diary of events
  • It is never your fault
  • Domestic Violence can be stopped

To be hurt by someone you love and care for can be the hardest thing to understand and you must tell someone if you are suffering.

Some other aspects of Domestic Violence is if you go home each night and see your mum or dad hurt each other - this can have devastating effects.  You can become withdrawn and frightened or you can take your anger out on others and become a bully - this is common as it is the only thing they can control.

Domestic Violence is NEVER right - speak to someone now and get the help you need.

 When I worked with both victims of domestic violence and perpetrators of domestic violence we worked with something called the 'Power and Control Wheel'.  It is an excellent tool that help you look into the reasons domestic violence occur.

Full Stop 2 Bullying had no intention of covering domestic violence but with recent statistics showing the amount of young people suffering from domestic violence we felt it was important to approach the subject.

Domestic violence is no different to bullying except this time your being bullied and hurt by someone who is suppose to love you.

Celebrities who have suffered Domestic Violence 

 Each of the above celebrities are said to have suffered at the hands of a domestic parter.  However it must never be forgotten that men can also be the victims.  I was unable to locate any pictures of male celebrities who have suffered at the hands of their partners - hopefully this is because they havn't been victims of Domestic Violence or is it more likely they don't feel they an speak out????

Speak out now . . . .

One incident of domestic violence is reported to the police every minute 

On average, 2 women a week are killed by a current or former male partner.  

1 in 4 women and 1 in 6 men will be a victim of domestic violence in their lifetime – many of these on a number of occasions
