October: Domestic Violence Awareness Month

October: Domestic Violence Awareness Month

October has been Domestic Violence Awareness Month since 1987.
There are so many statistics about domestic violence but the one that I want to repeat is 30-60% of perpetrators of intimate partner violence also abuse children in the house. So if your partner is abusing you, the chances are high that they will abuse your children.
Please take my advice and do not move someone into your house unless you really know them. By this I mean, wait at least a year before moving in with someone. Before you even introduce them to your children, do background checks. Take every precaution that you can to protect your children.
Also do not rush into moving people into your home before you see how they interact with your children. Your boyfriend or girlfriend can say that they like kids but you don’t really know until you see for yourself. If you see anything odd with how they act around your kids, end the relationship. The relationship is not worth hurting your kids or losing your kids to children’s services.
If you have question or need help, please call the following numbers:
The National Domestic Violence Hotline: 1-800-799-7233
THE NATIONAL SEXUAL ASSAULT HOTLINE AT 1-800-656-4673
THE NATIONAL TEEN DATING ABUSE HOTLINE AT 1-866-331-9474

  1. It’s true. DV is done really bad stuff. Personally, I don’t believe there’s enough understanding what it really is and then to top it off or culture reinforces the attitude and behaviors behind it.

    Just my 2 cents.

    1. Thanks for commenting. I appreciate the two cents. And I agree that our society reinforces the attitude about it.
