Preventing Abuse
By Jennifer Kenny

1     Matthew and his girlfriend were fighting again. The screaming was escalating. Then Matthew reached his boiling point and started hitting Stacy. Stacy was frightened. Stacy was being abused.
2     Abuse is physical or emotional harm. Abuse can happen anywhere. Most kinds of abuse, unfortunately, occur between people who should be able to trust each other. Abuse can't be tolerated.
3     Many times the one abusing the other is the spouse, boyfriend, or parent. Often the abuser has been abused in the past and, therefore, feels the abusive behavior is normal.
4     An abusive person displays disrespectful behavior. An abusive person often controls, obsesses, and has trouble with anger. An abuser may threaten and use force.
