Are You In An Abusive Relationship?

Child Abuse

Does your partner:

  • Act extremely jealous of others who pay attention to you, or use jealousy to justify his/her actions?
  • Monitor where you go, who you call, and who you spend time with?
  • Call you names, insult you, or continually criticize you?
  • Put you down in front of other people, you, play mind games and make you feel as if you are crazy?
  • Stop you from seeing or talking to friends or family, or limit your outside involvement?
  • Prevent you from getting or keeping a job?
  • Make all the decisions?
  • Take your money or not let you have access to the family income?
  • Make you afraid by using looks, actions, and gestures?
  • Threaten to take away your children?
  • Break things, damage property, throw objects, punch walls, or kick doors?
  • Trap you in your home, or keep you from leaving?
  • Push, slap, bite, kick or strangle you?
  • Use physical force or intimidation in sexual situations?
  • Prevent you from calling for help, or seeking medical attention?
  • Act like the abuse is no big deal, it’s your fault, or even denies doing it?
  • Blame drugs or alcohol for his/her abusive behavior?
  • Threaten to hurt or kill your pets?
  • Scare or threaten you with weapons?
  • Threaten to kill you or commit suicide?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you may be involved in a relationship that is abusive. If there is something about your relationship that scares you, we can help.
