Parents fighting?

It's not your fault and you are not alone
Adults often think that children and young people aren't really affected by the violence if they don't see all the fighting. You probably know that this isn't true. Even if you don't see the shouting or the hitting, you've probably heard it or maybe you've seen your parent bruised or upset after an argument. Many children and young people are at home, in the next room, when the fighting is happening.
