Family violence is common. but it shouldn’t be.
speak up against all forms of abuse (emotional, physical, financial, s****l and spiritual). you deserve to be safe.
children deserve to be safe and have responsible adults standing up for them!
Get your copy of the books that will help to change the stats around child abuse. 1 in 5 children will be sexually abused by the time they reach 18... simply not good enough. get your copy from www.attheark.org.au#childsafety#protectchildren
I attended this amazing conference yesterday hosted by @douglassalumnae. the traumas that women (and men) and children endure every single day in this country are despicable. the culture of silence around these issues is just sickening. these victims suffer in silence every single day. that’s not freedom. thank you to all the brave women who tell their stories. may this conversation continue to be had until the people in the back (and at the top) get it. #believewomen#believechildren#protectchildren#silenceisnotconsent
You are angry about your job. you always strive to make ends meet. another bill to pay awaits you. yesterday i found five cents on the street and hid them under ground. if i water them every day, will they grow? and, in that case, you will be happy?
i've filled my watering can, i'm ready, but catherine stumps onto me and it falls. i hadn't noticed that dad had walked in the room and i'm left helplessly to watch the umpteenth argument. caroline doesn't like dad; he hates her because she has another father. this, it seems, is really wrong. dad screams that she is the shame of the house, which is all her fault.
obviously it's not true, dad only says that because he's angry again. caroline isn't mean.
jesus, please, do something. keep dad calm and help caroline.
the floor is wet and caroline has slipped in an attempt to dodge a kick. this have to be stopped. i have to do something, but what? dad won't stop until he will have unleashed all his rage, i know him by now.
i can only powerlessly stare and pray god. where is the button to turn it off? this is all so wrong! my friend sissi's dad doesn't behave like this. why are we so different?
the screams have caught neighbors attention, all eyes are on us. two paramedics raise caroline up and my mum and i follow them at the hospital. two cops are talking to mum, who, once again, is crying desperately.
i wish it was all different.
i hear mom let off steam with tatiana, the friend we've been staying since we left home. she is nervous, sobs and i see her as fragile and small. everything seems so hard. this situation will never change.
even a convocation from a social worker has arrived. i feel a tightening sensation in my chest, because they are saying that they could take me away from my mother. what will i do in that case? where will i go? why does everything have to be so unfair?
but tatiana says there is hope. that, if mum shows the medical report, all will be ok. i take it from mom's bag and show it to her. you, who in this world are the adult, do justice. #lifestyle#ibelive#love#drawing#change#changeispossible#letuslove#search#whatwewant#sketch#art#protectchildren#stopviolence#socialactivism
