It's normal and healthy for children and teenagers to be angry or frustrated, but this shouldn't result in violence or abuse against other family members.

There is very little community or professional awareness around child and adolescent to parent violence and abuse. This can make it difficult for parents to talk about their experience, and many feel alone.

You are not alone. Respect's Young People's team can help.


Our partners in Northumberland have developed a practical guide for all family members who are experiencing or have experienced violence or abuse from their child. Access the guide here.

Respect's Young People's Service has also produced a guide detailing some practical useful strategies to keep yourself and your family safe when your child or adolescent is violent or abusive to you. Access the guide here.


The Respect Young People’s Programme (RYPP) is designed to support families experiencing CAPVA, and is provided by services across England. Learn more about RYPP and where it's provided here

The Respect Young People's team can provide information and signposting for parents,  carers, professionals, and practitioners working with families who are experiencing Child and Adolescent to Parent Violence and Abuse (CAPVA). Contact the team here.
