Do you tread on eggshells around your child?
Do you feel that your child has control over what happens in the home?
Each month Make (Good) Trouble highlights a charity or organisation that provides a service to families, young people and professionals to support them, ensure they feel heard, and let them know that they are not alone.
This month, we’re supporting Capa First Response CiC, supporting families impacted by Child or Adolescent to Parent Abuse. They offer support to parents, carers and young people via their online platforms, telephone, text and face-to-face sessions.
Are you impacted by your sibling’s behaviour in the home?
Do you get caught up in arguments between your parents and your sibling?
Often when there is an issue between a parent and a child, all the other children in the home are impacted too. Siblings can be forgotten or labelled as ‘the easy child’ and ignored as they ‘just get on with it’.
Capa understands the impact on siblings and that there is often little or no support available. They are able to offer signposting and support, especially to anyone impacted by a child using violence or abuse in the home.
Capa recently received funding from ‘The National Lottery Community Fund’ allowing them to continue offering Live FREE 20-minute advice and support sessions on Friday afternoons for the next six months, as well as one-to-one sessions at a much reduced rate for families. For information and to book a session, contact Capa by email: email@example.com.
It is estimated up to 3% of families in the UK have a child who is considered to be abusive towards their parent/s or carer.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
