How to Handle an Abuser

Spot the Signs

Abuse is against the law. If you are under 18 you are a minor and there are laws to protect you and to punish abusers.

Your abuser may also threaten to hurt you even more if you tell anyone what they are doing to you. It is not your fault that you’re being abused, and it never will be.

Have an action plan:

Tell an adult that you trust each time the abuse happens. Sometimes adults may not want to believe what you are telling them. But keep telling people you trust what has happened until someone believes you and knows how to help you. Try and record the abuser so you have some evidence.

It is very common for abusers to blame their victims, but is never the fault of the victim or child. Abuse is always the abuser’s fault. Even if you do something wrong and make an adult angry, it is never a reason for abuse.

HEY! Always report any form of abuse or tell an adult that you trust each time the abuse happens. Plan to get out the situation as soon as possible. You can report the person to the police, call 999, call 95 SWAGAA and 9664 Childline of the Ministry of Education and Training.

If u are in a bad relationship these are the signs, You partner will always scare you, & he will never jock, or share anything to you, he will take any opinion from you, & you will never complain even if you being abused, either emotional or physical.

True those are sings that we need to look after as young people, they are just simple to identify, so we need to be careful.In addition it is wise to move out of that relationship if you encounter such situations.
