Abuse can be physical, sexual, financial and emotional. You may feel that you are to blame and may feel angry, guilty, insecure and frightened. It is unacceptable for this to occur and so if you or someone you know is affected by this you need to discuss it with someone you trust. Always remember if you are concerned about your or someone elses safety call the police. You can also speak to a health professional or your teacher.
