What is child abuse? Could you be affected?
Domestic abuse at home
If your mum or someone else in the house is sometimes frightened of being attacked by a partner- that is very traumatic for you as well. Domestic abuse might mean hitting or kicking, but it can also be constant criticism or very controlling behaviour, leaving someone afraid to go out or meet friends or relatives. Domestic abuse is just not on. Everyone will take this very seriously and if you call, you will get help.
