I am 15 years old. I am a victim of Domestic Violence, I know that for sure. All the websites I look for help at are all aimed at the "spouse" of the violent partner, not for the children. My Dad is the violent one, and I want to seek help but haven't found much online. As I said, all of the help sites are aimed at the wife or female spouse, but not towards the child being the victim of abuse.

Any sites would help. I'm in Australia so make sure the sites are not US founded cause they won't help me.

Thanks.

Is there a counselling service at your school? There is also the Kids Help Line at 1800 55 1800 (a free call). They can also be reached online at http://www.kidshelp.com.au/

You do not have to suffer abuse. report it. Ask for help.

Generally, "domestic violence" is used to refer to violence towards a partner, because violence towards a child is covered by "child abuse" (which doesn't just mean sexual abuse).

I'm not sure from your post if what you're saying is that he's being violent towards you, or that you're suffering emotionally because he's being violent towards someone else in the family.

But if it's the former, try searching for websites on "child abuse".
