Bystanders – You have the Power!
We do not advocate that anyone ever try to get between two people that are arguing or fighting instead we suggest they:
- Create a distraction in the general area of the altercation
- Find someone in authority to interfere and/or report the abuse to because one of those two could end up like Kaity or in jail – they both need help on one level or another. You can remain anonymous
- Parent/Trusted adult
Friend is a victim – Your focus is the Victim and their well being.
Having a friend that is a victim in an abusive relationship can be a very frustrating time. Even so, the victim may not know it at the time they very much need the support of their family and friends.
