When my dad hits my mum I want to protect her. Should I get involved?

No, it isn’t your job to stop the fight and protect the parent who’s being hurt. It can be very dangerous and puts you at risk of getting hurt. If you’re really worried about your parent being hurt, call the police on 999 for free from your home, your mobile or a friend’s house if it’s safer.
