Is This Someone You Know?

  • Does he call his wife or girlfriend names?
  • Does he put her down and make her feel bad about herself?
  • Is he extremely jealous?
  • Does he control what she does, and whom she sees and talks to?
  • Has he ever made angry or threatening gestures toward her?
  • Has he ever verbally threatened her?
  • Has he ever punched a wall or destroyed possessions in anger?
  • Has he ever hit or slapped her or the children?
  • Does he tell her it's "her fault" that he behaves the way he does?

If you can answer "Yes" to any of these questions, your friend or family member may have a problem with abuse. Without help, it could get worse. At Moving Forward's Domestic Violence Program, he can learn to change. Encourage him to call us to schedule a confidential appointment with one of our trained staff. We can help ...before it's too late.
