    Questions To Ask Yourself
  • Does your partner shove, hit, shake or slap you?
  • Does your partner make light of the abuse, insist that it didn't happen, or shift the responsibility for his abusive behavior, blaming you for it?
  • Does your partner continually put you down, call you names, or humiliate you?
  • Does your partner intimidate you through looks or actions, destroy your property, or display weapons
  • Does your partner control what you do, who you see and talk to, where you go, limiting your involvement outside the relationship?
  • Are you made to feel guilty about the children, or has your partner threatened to take the children away?
    Questions To Ask For Friends/Family
  • Does she appear anxious, depressed, withdrawn, and reluctant to talk?
  • Does her partner criticize her in front of you, making remarks that make you feel uncomfortable when you're around the two of them?
  • Do you see or hear about repeated bruises, broken bones, or other injuries that reportedly result from "accidents"?
  • Does her partner try to control her every move, make her account for her time, and accuse her of having affairs?
  • Is she often late or absent from work, has she quit a job altogether, or does she leave social engagements early because her partner is waiting for her?
