Domestic Violence - The Domestic Violence Cycle
Domestic violence is when one person tries to control another. It is a cycle which repeats itself.
Once a violent act takes place in a relationship, the violence almost always reoccurs. In fact, it tends to get more severe. In the event of physical abuse:
- Get medical attention for any injuries.
- Save anything that proves your side of the story(evidence).
- Have someone take photographs of your injuries and any damage.
- Give your child's teachers a copy of the Order of Protection.
