Some people think that because violence happens in personal relationships, it is not anyone else's business. THIS IS NOT TRUE. Domestic and family violence is a crime, and criminal behaviour is the business of the whole community. Domestic and family violence is against the law and it has serious consequences.
Violence is a behaviour, and behaviour is a choice; nothing ever justifies violence or the choice to use violent behaviour. NEVER think that someone else's violence is your fault. We are each responsible for our own behaviour.
Many people wonder if such things as 'nagging' can cause domestic and family violence. Absolutely not - violence is still a chosen behaviour. Nagging may cause a person to feel angry, upset, agitated or annoyed, but it cannot make them use violence. There are always alternatives to violence.
