My sister is victim of domestic violence. the person inflicting the verbal, emotional and sometimes physical abuse, is her daughter, my 13 year old niece.
Once I realised what was going on, I got my sister to ring the help for domestic volencr, and I’m very suprised to see how little help is available.
My sister can’t leave, because she can’t leave her daughter. She can’t fight back, as she isn’t strong enough mentally after being abused for so long.
The police have been involved, the only way my sister can get peace, is to try and get her strength back, or have she take her daughter.
I have tried speaking to my niece, I have stood up to her. But usually within a few days she goes back to how she was.
We are trying everything with can while waiting for them both to get counselling.
