Leeds Domestic Violence and Abuse
What other young people have to say

It helps to know that other children and young people are also experiencing the same issues. Here are some comments posted on the Hideout website:
 
I couldn't stop worrying about the violence at home. My family said it was a secret. I just wanted to be normal. Now I know domestic violence isn't okay.
 
I don't know what I would have done without my best friend. She listened to me and then helped me figure out who I could talk to and get help.

I used to feel like the violence was my fault. They were always fighting about me. I wanted it to stop.

When the shouting started my younger sisters and I would all sit on my bed together. I'd read them stories so they wouldn't hear the noise.

I really wanted to help my mum but I didn't know what to do...

My Dad's asked for contact with me, even though I feel scared to be alone with him. I love my dad, but I'm not sure I want to see him right now.

Feelings can be hard to talk about and it can be tough to figure out what's making you feel a certain way.
