Thousands of parents may be too ashamed to report abuse at the hands of their children, according to a charity set up to support them.

Family Lives says it has been contacted by more than 3,500 people seeking help in four years.

The BBC's Frankie McCamley speaks to a victim who suffered abuse by her daughter.

Home Office Information Guide :
 

The Rosalie Ryrie Foundation is included in the Home OfficeInformation guide: adolescent to parent violence and abuse (APVA).How to Respond to APVA: General Advice for all Prectitioners: Health Professionals, Education, Social Care, Housing, Police, Youth Justice.

 

The cross-Government definition of domestic violence and abuse is any incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive or threatening behaviour, violence or abuse between those aged 16 or over who are or have been intimate partner or family members regardless of gender of sexuality. This can encompass, but is not limited to psychological, physical, sexual, financial and emotional abuse. While this definition applies to those aged 16 or above, APVA can equally involve children under 16, and the advice in this document reflects this.

It is important to recognise that APVA is likely to involve a pattern of behaviour. This can include physical violence from an adolescant towards a parent and a number of different types of abusive behaviours. Violence and abuse can occur together or seperately. Abusive behaviours can encompass, but are not limited to humiliating language and threats, belittlinga parent, damage to property, stealing from a parent and heightened sexualised behaviours. However some families might experience episodes of explosive physical violence from their adolescent with fewer controlling , abusive behaviours. Although practitioners may be required to deal with a single incident of APVA, it is importnet to gain an understanding of the pattern of behaviour behind an incident and the history of the relationship between the young person and the parent.

 

My Violent Child - Channel 5 - Wednesday 10th March - 9pm

http://www.channel5.com/shows/my-violent-child/episodes/my-violent-child-tearing-us-apart

Preston mum Tracey has suffered from violence at the hands of nine-year-old Robert since he was three, and the problem is progressively getting worse. Their house is riddled with holes that he has punched in the wall and in the past the police have even had to use riot shields and tasers to control Robertʼs rages. Now that he is getting older, Tracey is terrified of what he is capable of doing next. As Robert says: “It feels like someone else taking over my body when I get angry.” The programme also tells the moving story of eight-year-old Bailey. He has been diagnosed with ADHD and does everything he can to control his anger, but cannot help lashing out at his parents.

The programme follows both families on their emotional journey as they try very different approaches to solving their childrenʼs behavioural issues. Tracey works with parenting expert Ann Ramsden, who quickly gets to the heart of the problem, realising that witnessing violence at a young age has had awful repercussions. Meanwhile, Bailey and his parents work with ADHD counsellor Lorrine Marer, whose confrontational style of anger management has immediate effects, allowing Bailey to explain the heart-wrenching story of what really lies behind his anger.
