domestic violence

Postby Gina2520 » Mon Jul 13, 2009 2:39 pm

Hi all

My friend has just told me that her bf as been hitting her. She has had brusies on here arm when he has held her too hard before but they went out drinking the other night and he draged her out becasue she was talking to guy. he took her out to a park and started to punch her in the face. my question is how to i comfort her? what do i say? She is living on her own with her daughter. I just dont know what to say to her.

I don't think you need to comfort her - I think you need to tell her to get rid of this moron. His behaviour is appauling. It doesn't matter how much she loves him etc., she needs to get out of this relationship fast.

I agree. She could always ring the domestic abuse hotline. 0808 2000 247

If she doesn't want to call the domestic abuse hotline then you could call on her behalf and ask for advice for a friend.
