Warning Signs and Education

Domestic Violence hurts everyone

Domestic violence occurs within a family or an intimate relationship as a way for one person to control another. Most victims of domestic violence are women, although men can be battered, too. Domestic violence includes physical abuse, not allowing someone to leave home or using objects like knives and guns to cause injury. It also includes harming someone emotionally by threats, name-calling and put-downs.

Domestic violence spares no one, especially children who hear and witness it or are targets. Living in a home where one parent uses violence against the other places children at risk for emotional and behavioral problems. They may feel confused, wet the bed, be unable to sleep, have trouble in school or blame themselves for the violence.

If something about your relationship scares you or you believe that you and your children are not safe, Harbor House is available to assist you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Call the Hotline at (316) 263-3000.

Know the warning signs of an abusive relationship

Does your partner:

  • “Track” all your time?
  • Regularly accuse you of being unfaithful?
  • Isolate you from working or attending school?
  • Prevent you from working or attending school?
  • Criticize you for little things?
  • Get angry if you refuse sex?
  • Get out of control when drinking or on drugs?
  • Control the money and badger you to account for any that you spend?
  • Embarrass you in public or private?
  • Physically abuse you or your children?
  • Intentionally destroy your belongings or things that you treasure?
  • Threaten to use a weapon against you?
  • Threaten to take your children?

Do you…

  • Sometimes feel scared of how your partner will act?
  • Constantly make excuses to other people for your partner’s behavior?
  • Believe that you can help your partner change if only you changed something about yourself?
  • Feel like no matter what you do, your partner is never happy with you?
  • Stay with your partner because you are afraid of what your partner would do if you broke up?

Are you an abuser?

If you are abusing your family or loved one, you should know that domestic violence is a crime and that you could lose your children, friends, home and job if it doesn’t stop. There is no excuse for your behavior.

Young boys who witness the abuse of their mothers may be at greater risk for becoming men who batter in adulthood than boys from homes free of violence. Your behavior now might be negatively impacting your son’s future behavior.

If you are abusing your loved ones, it is important to get information about how you can get help for your behavior by also calling the Harbor House hotline at (316) 263-6000.
