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 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.
