We're here to help

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, and this can make it difficult for parents to talk about their experience. Many feel isolated, scared, and alone.

We're here to tell you that you're not alone. Respect's Young People's team can help.

Get Support

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). 

We may ask you some questions to help us fully understand your situation to help us provide you with as much helpful information as we can. 

Most of all, we want you to feel listened to, heard, and supported with respect and without judgment.
