What is Abuse?

Abuse is behaviour that shatters dreams and causes pain. Sometimes abuse involves physical violence like hitting, kicking or choking. Sometimes abuse involves name calling or harsh words that are meant to hurt. Sometimes abuse involves limiting or denying access to food, or money, or other family resources. Sometimes abuse involves demands for sexual activity. Abuse always involves responses that are meant to control, shame or humiliate another person through intimacy and shared experience. Peace and safety for all family members cannot exist when abuse is present.
