If you think you are experiencing any of the things described in this quiz, we would recommend that you talk to a person you trust about what is happening.
Does one parent call the other names and say things to make them feel bad about themselves?Correct
Calling the other person names and making them fell bad about themselves is emotional abuse. This isn’t OK and can be part of a pattern of domestic abuse. This behaviour can also make you feel scared or nervous. If you think this is going on at home, it’s a good idea to speak to another adult you can trust. Tell them about your worries.Incorrect
Parents should treat each other with respect and should support each other. Some arguing is normal. Maybe you’ve heard your parents fight occasionally and say mean things to each other – this isn’t necessarily domestic abuse.
Does one parent push, kick or slap the other or physically hurt them in some way?Correct
Domestic abuse is when one adult in the family hurts or bullies the other adult. Hitting, slapping and pushing are different kinds of physical abuse that can be part of domestic violence. It’s never OK to hurt another person in this way – this abuse is against the law. You have a right to be safe.Incorrect
Pushing and slapping are types of physical abuse. There are other ways of physically hurting someone, but no matter which way, all types of physical abuse are against the law. Domestic abuse often includes physical abuse, but it doesn’t have to. Just because there’s no physical violence going on, doesn’t mean things are OK.
Does one parent always seem to bully the other, tell them what to do and maybe even make them cry?Correct
Domestic abuse doesn’t have to include physical abuse. It can include bullying the other person emotionally. Domestic abuse is about one adult having more power and control than the other and trying to control the other person. Seeing this happen in your home may make you feel worried or upset. You and your family can get help. We suggest you talk to an adult you trust, such as a teacher or neighbour.Incorrect
Domestic abuse can include many differential types of abuse. Verbal abuse, such as shouting, and emotional abuse, such as bullying someone and calling them names, are only some of the examples.
Does one parent stop the other from going out, stop them from seeing friends or spending time with other family members?Correct
Domestic abuse can include isolating the other partner and keeping them away from family and friends. This behaviour isn’t OK. It can make the other person feel alone and depressed. Parents should trust each other, and everyone has the right to be free to make their own decisions.Incorrect
When you are in a relationship with someone, you should be free to make your own decisions. Parents should treat each other with respect and trust.
Does one parent sometimes do or say things that make you feel scared or unsafe at home?Correct
You have a right to feel safe, and adults have the responsibility to protect you. If you feel scared or unsafe, maybe because you see someone being abusive or because someone is hurting you, it’s important that you get help.Incorrect
You have the right to be safe. If you feel happy at home and you feel you can talk to adults in your family about your worries, then it sounds as though things are OK.
