Do you know what domestic abuse is? Many victims of domestic abuse deny that they have experienced abuse because they have never been hospitalized for injuries or filed a police report against their abuser. Domestic abuse is a system of behaviors that cause injury, guilt, shame and emotional pain. Each behavior depends upon and reinforces other behaviors. If you are experiencing any of these incidents, speak with someone. You can call the National Domestic Violence Hotline 24 hours a day, 7 Days a week at 1-800-799-7233.
Unfortunately, children don’t come with a book of instructions for parents that teach them how to navigate the challenges of guiding children through childhood and into adulthood. When parenting becomes a struggle between the parent and the child, it can feel more like a job than a joy! The Breakthrough Parenting® course offers a proven method for raising cooperative, happy and self-confident children.
