Love Shouldn’t Hurt

Children are groomed to accept violence long before they meet their abusive dating partner.

This is not a message that parents want to hear. This is not a message that caregivers want to accept.

This message is ugly and truthful, and the messenger is often tainted as being ignorant or emotional or too sensitive, the accusative list is endless.

In all my years of talking about how violence at home sets up children to accept violence later on, less than 10 out of every hundred listeners will reflect on the message and fewer will take action at their own homes. The overwhelming majority easily dismiss me. (You can see my TEDx talk here)

It’s 2022.

In the last 2 years, many have had to stay home where it’s supposed to be safe.

However, home is the most unsafe place for many women and children.

Children will go back to school having witnessed and/or received levels of violence that will make your head spin.

Have you had violence at home?

Have your children been hit/screamed at/sexually abused? 

Have you sought help? 

Please find someone to speak to and please find help for your kids.

Always on your side,
