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 still very little awareness of child and adolescent to parent violence and abuse (CAPVA), and this can make it difficult for parents and carers to talk about their experience.
The Respect Young People's team can provide information for parents, carers and practitioners working with families who are experiencing violence and abuse from their children. The team do not take referrals or work directly with families, but we may be able signpost to a service near you that can offer support
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.
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.
The Respect Young People's Programme
The Respect Young People’s Programme (RYPP) is designed to support families experiencing CAPVA, and is provided by services across England.
