PHONE THE HOTLINE
by: Bee

Anything that is done to us that scares us like someone using physical,mental or verbal acts toward us is abuse.A person who is abusive will grab,push,
or threaten.They feel they can't get our attention unless they are forceful.What concerns me is that abuse starts with pushing but can lead to hitting. Not all the time but if the person doing the pushing or yelling looses their temper it can lead to physical abuse.There is a fine line between verbal & physical when anger is involved.

Please tell someone or phone the hot line.Please don't think you will get them into trouble because if they are reported they can get the help they need before you get hurt or they hurt you.I only wish when I was younger I had told someone because if I had,I wouldn't have had to endure all the abuse I did.I was afraid I would hurt my parents but instead they hurt me.

I hope you are o.k,Bee
