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.
 
5     Did you know that three million children are reported abused each year in our country? Children are too young to know what to do. Child abuse can be physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, or neglect.
