If you know someone who can’t control their outbursts, or if you think there’s a chance they may harm a child, physically or emotionally, contact your local child protection agency immediately.

Violence is never okay. No one, child or adult, has the right to cause a child physical or emotional pain. Getting the right kind of help can provide children with the support they need to help the abuse stop.
